Is it just me or is there a general level of difference between a Hasbro version of a TF figure and the Takara version? My experience is generally limited to reissues as you'll read below, but I'd be keen to hear how people have got on with other TF lines... I've just recieved my SDCC Blaster and have to say I am most disappointed with the overall quality of the toy. Blaster's right arm is loose and Eject has a loose leg and feels cheaply made... it's also a real struggle to get him in Blaster's chest. Now, although I don't have the TFC Blaster for comparison, I do have the Encore cassettes, and they are of a much better quality. I made the mistake of buying the 25th Anniversary Prime, and that also is of rather naff quality and again has loose arm syndrome, yet the Encore version is fine. It almost tempts me to open my sealed SDCC Soundwave and Encore Soundwave to compare!! The only Takara toy I've been disappointed with is Encore Bruticus, which is ok but definitely not of the same quality of the original G1 release. It wouldn't surprise me if my experiences ring true with others, as it would not be the first time I've bought items where the Japanese version is superior to the US version... Yet, as all these reissues are made in China for either Hasbro or Takara, should they not be of the same quality regardless of packaging / distribution? Surely the molds are at the same priduction facility and, for example, TFC Blaster came from the same mold and factory as SDCC Blaster?
