    Prowl/Streak's shoulder missiles should have been silver/chrome silver to begin with.

    They don't look all that different, apart from the random chrome.

    Why do they keep chroming spoilers? I haven't seen many real cars with shiny silver spoilers.

    Meh all-around.

    Sideswipe appears to look exactly the same except for chrome spoiler and weapon.

    Oct-Tankor ... Maybe if the whole comb-thing was chromed, it could be pretty cool (and G1-ish). Having just the hinge bit and the laser guns chromed looks 'tarded to me.

    Silverstreak - OK, why dark gray instead of black? Not sure if that qualifies as more cartoon accurate or not, but I definitely like the Hasbro one better, if only for visual contrast.

    The weapons on Octane/Tankor don't look that great, especially on the alt modes. Guess I'm glad I picked up the Hasbro version then. Sideswipe's random chrome spoiler is just odd, as usual.

    Silverstreak looks pretty decent, I may get this version if I decide to pick up this mold.

    They don't do it to make them look like real cars, it's because the G1 series had chrome spoilers.

    Although Sideswipe never had a chrome spoiler.

    If it weren't for BLUEstreak's :) tongue:)  pointless chrome spoiler, I'd agree with this. I like the chroming on his and Sideswipe's weapons, but not enough to pay Henkei prices when I could just buy the Hasbro versions and a can of silver paint.

    Henkei Lambor is now less accurate compared to Universe Sideswipe, because G1 Sideswipe's launcher was black with a silver rim, and it fired white missiles. The whole thing wasn't silver.

    Tomy has also dropped Silverstreak's red wheels in favour of black (or grey).

    Takara, stop buying such vast amounts of chrome!

    I hope they don't chrome the spoiler on the GT-R, I mean I don't reckon they would do that for a licensed car toy but I've got the fear now...

    Oh wow.

    You know, when I think about it, this is probably what you get when Takara is releasing toys only a few months after the US rather than over a year after - specifically, the paintjobs aren't really that different.

    I like Hasbro's Silverstreak better, Octane's chrome is bleh, and Sideswipe's Hasbro version is also superior.

    Prowl's probably the only one I would want to get, and that's more because of the chromed missiles. Though now I'm thinking of passing on him altogether.

    I can't see paying the increased prices for these. If Tankor got any chrome, it should have been his whole tank. Like others have said, the random chrome doesn't make the figure more accurate. Takara's TFs are definitely pick and choose.

    Chromed rims? Chromed tank trailer? Those I could see and was hoping for. Pass on these cats.

    Looks like all they did was chrome the spiolers and weapons(& take away Sunstreakers engine from Sideswipe). I would have liked to see Octane's entire blade chromed and none on his quad laser.
