    I'd say TA-01, mainly cuz I love that paint job and I think the TAW sword is overpriced.

    Purely my opinion: Neither.

    1. TAW sword is seriously way overpriced as others mentioned. A few thin pieces of plastic for > $50, I think not.

    2. TA-01 is nice and all with the paint job but instead of getting this, I'll rather wait for TA-38 Wing Blade Optimus Prime. I believe it is TA-01 with the add-on winged jetpack and hammer (and no over-sized axe).

    get wingblade prime.
    unless you are a completionist.

    but really, the sword isn't worth it.
    when you can buy a third party figure or most any other figure (or 2) for the same price. it should be no contest.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about Wingblade Prime, he's the main reason I don't have TA-01 yet.

    TAW sword is overpriced and has crap quality control. It looks awesome, but like anabolik here said hold out for the wingblade version!

    I'm a big fan of TAW swords (I have 5 of it :D ) but also of the TA-01 so.... I suggest to get both :) 

    I know, this is that kind of suggestion that can be easly jumped :D
