Autobase Aichi reported,Japanese version of Nightwatch Optimus Prime is same as UK reｌeased version.
Only it's cheaper to buy
I'm not in the know on this one, what are the differences?
You can see the AllSpark Power verison here:
Basically, some the small bits of color (gold, black, etc.) on the figure have been replaced with the "AllSpark Bright Blue" color like all figures from the subline will have.
NICE! Funny, I just asked about this in a different thread. I'm gonna go out of my way to get this one... it just looks so much nicer than the US version.
Me likey! This NW Prime will make a nicer movie Scourge, rather than "Allspark" Prime.
The Jap/UK looks so much better. The screaming blue on the US NW OP's chest just looks awfull.
I'm glad I chose the to order mine from HLJ, it should arrive soon
He'll make a great Ultra Magnus
I have UK NIghtwatch Prime and I am happy I did not wait for the US version. Of course I still need to see better pics, but the allspark blue and gold details just don't look that good
Got this guy 5 months ago.
Also, it's interesting to note that even the packaging appears to be identical to the UK release, with the addition of the Japanese logo which appears to be a sticker on the plastic.
Just a heads up, but Op, Recon Barricade, Thundercracker, and Wiretap were all released on the 13th.
Liking that Nightwatch Prime more than the US version. Might pick it up, since I never bought this mold and since Premium version of Leader Optimushas a different noggin, I won't feel like I bought the same toy twice. Even though I did.
Was the color of the original Leader Prime's gunarm the same as Nightwatch's or did it have some red in there?
I dunno guys... I just got a picture of the Japanese Nightwatch Optimus, and the colour looks no different from the US version. Perhaps the initial picture here is just in a different light. I'll probably go down to the store for a look myself though.
Anyway, pictures of the Japanese version:
No matter what, Blueberry Prime is a pass for me.
Not interested in this one. Besides how many times can you repaint or re-do a single character in the same toy series? Whats the limit until it gets old? 1-2-5-20?? Come on now, if you want my money, come up with new stuff.
The should have done a black Movie Prime instead of that color.
The differences are the minor paint apps but are quite clear:
Black on the hips is replaced with allspark blue, Gold on the forearms is also replaced with retard blue, all the gold apps on the US version are a much lighter gold, additional stupid blu has been added to the shoulders on the US version as well as on the center of the chest.
edit: 300th post, woot!
Springing for the japanese/eu version seems a bit excessive to me for minor paint apps. especially when I can make those Kinds of changes myself for much less than the cost of importing. So I'll do just that.
Just another repaint of some toy just to make more money =(
Well, that is pretty much Takara & Hasbro's aim.
I do like Hasbro's version, but the UK/Japanese one is better, imo. Now I have to pay more to get the one I want, dammit. I was looking forward to paying only 40 bucks.
Well, i ordered one set on HLJ. But it's out of stock now. I hope i could receive it in 2007. I'm also afraid of receiving an allsparkpower version. That will be too ridiculous. Allsparkpower version will be released in taiwan in January.
Finally i received UK version. Thanks HLJ so much! I took some pictures. Enjoy!http://tw.myblog.yahoo.com/jw!OZs6zFiYAg_kkagy1C9.xrqw6x8Hu4I-/article?mid=657&prev=-1&next=634
