    Nah, quick colour change and he's fine. A nice chrome effect would be pretty snazzy, just make him look more like his badass on-screen self.

    Bumble bee is meh, US version's better. The painted roof and doors don't match, and, because the plastic is blue, his robot legs suffer.

    On the Megatron note, you guy's would be singin' a different tune if you actually had Leader Megs. The blue is actually more silver than what it looks online, plus his silver plastic adds to the look aswell.

    Agreed on the Megatron comment. He really is quite impressive in person and much better looking than in the pictures.

    I still want to see what the differences will be on all the Takara movie toys, but I will probably content myself w/ the Hasbro versions unless the Takara is just amazing.

    The missiles and windows are not even matching, and the yellows. I knew that clear windows wasn't always the ticket.

    I was all hyped-up about this guy when I heard he was gonna have clear windows, but then I got the US one and realized there'd have to be a lot of yellow paint and it'll probably look kinda weird because of it. Looks like I was right. :/

    The clear windows look nice, but not enough for me to import it. I will keep my crappy American version, Thank you very much.

    A deluxe costs about US$22 here, and I am getting a few things from Japan anyway, so I am buying this Takara Bumblebee. At 2000yen (US$16) I am not doing too bad. I like blue :)

    I'll never understand the appeal of clear windows when there's really no interior to speak of...
