    Is this version of JRX (it's the Korean version I think) the same as the Japanese version? [​IMG]

    Yes. Clear windows and all. The only difference is the packaging.

    ^ What he said!

    It is the exact same (mold & deco). Other than the differing box, sometimes the Korean version is missing some of the extraneous stuff due to packaging errors. Not the important stuff (figures or their accessories), but for example, mine (also the Korean Sonokong version) was missing some of the trading cards. Their packaging efficiency in that regards sucks, but the figures and all their components are fine.

    Yeah it's just about the same. The only thing is that they're notorious for some odd paintwork. Mine came out mostly fine, with just the hands on the combined mode scraping some paint that shouldn't have been in the finger joint. The problem is you can't check yourself until you open them.

    JRX or Rail Racer is worth it though. Probably the best combiner toy to ever come out of a Transformers series. (Sorry G1 fans, take off the nostalgia goggles. Most of the combiners are fugly partforming bricks toy wise.)

    what about the quality of the plastic and the paintjob etc?
    someone told me before that the paintjob was subpar

    ^ That depends on how nitpicky you are. ;)

    Supposedly they're the same. The only figure I've heard of having problems was Brave Max with an upside down sticker and rusty screws.

    I'll say it again, it's the same with the Takara packaged JRX. When it comes to plastic and paint issues. Thats a QC issue that shows no favoritism on what company it's released from.

    Huh, I'd heard that the Korean JRX had the same solid windows as the Hasbro Rail Racer. Glad to hear that's not the case.

    That is the JRX I have. Clear windows, tight joints, love it.
