    I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to choose one, or get both and mix/match. I love Takara's dark colors and use of purple, while I like the blue Hasbro used similar to his TFA self (the pic doesn't show it well, but you can see it clearly in Peaugh's video review).

    What about you?

    I love both versions really, but I like the green on lugnut just a little better. I feel takara is giving a bit of a shout out to shockwave by doing a purple version. Since I still have faith that their will be a classics incarnation of shockwave, I will get the green deco.

    I'm getting both. Each has its strengths and are different enough that I can do different things with them (repurpose one as "Movieverse" Lugnut for my collection or something like that).

    Both are quite cool so I am going to have to side with my wallet and get the Hasbro version.

    Hasbro. I like the more realistic deco and, due to the price increase, it's extremely rare I get the Takara version of anything.

    Both are OK, and neither are particularly closer to Animated Lugnut, so Hasbro.

    I picked hasbro because he looks more like the atomic Lugnut from animated and i honestly preferred that color scheme compared to the orginal.

    As it stands right now, neither. Some great pics once its released might sway me but it doesn't appeal to me whatsover based on what I've seen so far.

    I think this is the first time I've seen the Takara version.

    That being said, I like the Hasbro version a lot more, so Hasbro for me.

    Hasbro. Takara's looks nicer but I can never be bothered importing unless its something really really special.

    i'd like to get the Takara version after i get the Hasbro version.
    make them twins.

    call the Takara version "Wingnut"

    (better than Skids and Mudflap, IMO.)

    The Takara one looks really nice but would be far too expensive for me.

    I'll be just as happy with the Hasbro version anyway.

    I think I'm going to go for the Takara version. Mainly because out of the two, he's the one with the deco closer to the original Animated version of Lugnut. I would say the Hasbro colour scheme is more like Atomic Lugnut.

    The thing that might put me off getting the United version is the possibility of shiny paint.

    Has anyone seen a single picture of a United figure that wasn't photoshopped yet?
