    Wow, those are some nice galleries. Thanks for posting the links to these.

    I'm glad I preordered the Takara versions of Seaspray and Sidearm Sideswipe. Hopefully BBTS gets them in by next week.

    I don't usually say this but i prefer the Hasbro version of Seaspray.
    Will be getting Takaras Breacher even though i have the Hasbro version. The little dude rocks!

    Sideswipe looks so sleek. Can't wait to get mine with Alternity TC!

    Huh, flip out the head and hands and you have good kitbash potential, especially if the backpack can be flipped back a bit further. Maybe Tracks or Wheeljack.

    Seaspray look good, but not worth the full import price to replace the Hasbro one I have for a different shade of yellow and gray. Having the choice between the two in a store for the same price, I would take the Takara though.

    I didn't click through on SA SS. So my first thought on seeing this pic was "Wait a minute, why is there a pic of Alternity Skywarp here ... with the colors inverted?!?"

    Might have to pick that up, along with the US release. Then I'm just missing a Thundercracker for an unusual version of the Seekers...

    the Japanese version(s) of 97% of transformers has superior color/paint schemes, especially with this sideswipe. Hasbro is way too hit or miss.

    I think Sideswipe looks better w/out the graphics. His vehicle mode is so strong, extra fluff isnt needed.

    breacher looks good, sea spray looks the same, except for the yellow, and sideswipe looks boring with out the red.

    just my opinion.

    I'm not a big fan of the red on Sideswipe, but I think I prefer it, cause it hides the lines pretty good, plus if you keep it in Bot mode it looks pretty cool. I'm gonna save my money on the imports and stick Hasbro.

    I have to say, normally I prefer muted decos to the day-glo saturated colours that Takara often uses... but in this particular case, the bright yellow on Seaspray looks a lot more striking, AND ends up being more true-to-life. You're probably much more likely to see bright colours used on a hovercraft than, uh... dull bronze?

    I don't like the flame deco that seems to be Hasbro's default solution for everything, but it IS interesting how the deco on the Hasbro version distracts from how fragmented the hood area is on Sidearm Sideswipe. On the other hand, I will say that the fragmented panels are actually sort of attractive in their own way, even if they make it look less like the real Corvette.
