    The box says 'Destron', not 'Destroyon' and that's what the Decepticon faction is called in Japan.
    Thanks for the review, though. :p

    I never got a chance to own the hasbro release. And since this is anime accurate, might as well fork over an extra 10+ bucks :)

    I think this is the only "gotta have" Henkei toy for me. All the others I could take or leave (Megatron included)

    I like your line "I think this is the most G1-accurate version, moreso than the G1 toy." I know what you meant by it, but it's still funny to hear.

    I'm glad you knew what I meant I was talking about accurate to the G1 Cartoon.

    Glad you like that line :)

    The only bad thing about the Henkei recolors is that they lead to more needless Hasbro bitching, OH TEH NOES THEY NEVAR DO ANYTHING RIGHT, WHAT A BUNCH OF BASTARDS, I'M MAD ABOUT TOYS RARGHHA

    NOT YOU GUYS THOUGH, so far, but I noticed a rather bitchy comment on Sean's video. But hey, that's every Youtube video isn't it?

    ...though I can't say much really, I have bitched about Universe Galvatron a bit heh

    THANKS BRO!

    Yea I notice the comment.

    I think Hasbro don't suck for not making "the first time" type of thing. I think of when they release the Movie Line and Classics Lines then they release The Premium Line and The Henkei Line it's a response to fans who either want a more accurate, detailed, or better quality version of the toy and didn't like the toys in the first place. I know many people who are getting Premium Movie Leader Megatron for they didn't like Movie Leader Megatron Colors. So I think it's a good idea for what they are doing.

    Except with Repaint lines cuz other lines like Animated and Universe to come out way later :(

    Now why can't Hasbro (or whoever) bring out our toys with the correct color scheme the first time?

    People who respond to youtube videos are, for the most part, not the sharpest of sporks to begin with. Got to love how a video clip of an old Popeye cartoon degenerates into political name-calling and internet toughguy threats. And of course, any TF-related video HAS to have Movie bashing, regardless of a little thing called context. :) 

    Hey,Sean, does it seem the chrome parts on Astrotrain might suffer breakage where they connect to the figure?

    Dildotrain looks a lot better in the show-accurate colors.
