After holding out for a long time, I saw some galleries and ended up getting Henkei Prime, Skyfire, Silverbolt, BB, TC, and Ratchet (already had Henkei Ironhide). These were all to replace my Hasbro ones and make my display a little more toon accurate. Anyway, I like them as far as looks go, but in general, they are all a bit off compared to their Hasbro counterparts. -Prime looks great, but is more loose -Jetfire looks great, but is slightly more loose than his counterpart. That, and his blue plate in front of his head refuses to sit as far down as the Hasbro one. It looks fixable, but still. -BB is an improvement, but the seat on his left leg won't fold down as far as the Hasbro version -TC is nice, but has the well documented loose cannons. Otherwise, great. -Ironhide - definitely like the appearance better. The arms come apart more easily than the american version. -Ratchet - floppy in the legs, but otherwise very nice. -Silverbolt - slightly more loose All in all, I'm pleased. They LOOK better, but they all have minor failings from loose joints to ill-fitting parts that bring them down a little. Still have Megs and SS in the mail, so we'll se about them. Is this on par with everyone's experience? I'm not trying to start a Hasbro vs Takara debate (really). I'm just trying to discuss differences in the toys and if there are generalities.
