    And there ARE changes. Clear plastic is a lighter shade, there are paint details on the inner-chest, the white is much more brighter, face is now silver, sides of head are painted gold, shoulder pieces around logos are now white, and it appears the red is a bit brighter as well!

    looks nice enough, but not "pay-to-upgrade" nice. I actually think i like the paler Hasbro windows.

    Small changes, but good changes. Not worth buying him twice, but nice making it different without going crazy and ruining it.

    Agreed. He looks good. But not good enough to warrant replacing my Hasbro version. I've got to admit I'm tempted though.

    I bet a lot of those brighter colors are just the image being slightly doctored, though that clear plastic is definitely a bit darker. Or bluer. It looks nice.

    Additional paint apps are nice, too.

    Will keep my Hasbro one, thanks. :)

    I'm crying chrome tears for the Henkei Drift that never was. Would have like to have seen a dangerously shiny version of that huge sword.

    He might have stiffer plastic swords too, not that it matters much. He looks good.

    It would have to be changed to hard plastic for it to hold.

    Is there a possibility that United Drift's sword could be hard plastic? On Drift himself: looks bitchin', but I don't want to spend $30-$40 for extra paint apps. :|

    Not likely. It's rare that the materials are different between Hasbro & Takara releases, especially if the Hasbro release is first.

    Meh. The only thing I like on United Drift over my Hasbro Drift is the two gold paint apps on the spots on the sides of the helmet (like on the comic design), but otherwise I like my Hasbro Drift better.

    Drift's face was never silver. It was... argent.

    Well all that's different is a slight change of shade and more detail. It's not like he has a gray head instead of white or something.

    ya know its crap like this that makesme think the US Releases just get rushed and shown no love when copared ot the overseas version of the same goddamn toys we get. I Mean shit all one has to do is compare the henkei tfs with the classics tfs and the classics stuff is far more inferior for the most part. Why nto make them all the same so no one feels cheated?
