    I don't see much difference between the Takara and Hasbro versions from those pics, with the obvious exception of Prime's trailer and paint job. Speaking of which, why is the blue panel along the side of his truck mode on backwards?

    What a dull trailer, really hope it has some other functionality otherwise hasbro were right all along when they said selling plastic bricks was hard.

    Guess the leader Sentinel will be just a normal release while the masterpiece version is to be released as well.

    I'm curious as to what the Bumblebee and Optimus sillhouettes are behind the Coming Soon banners. The Prime looks different from any Prime figures we've seen so far.

    EDIT: d'oh, just read the Dual Model Kit stuff. Probably more of those 'Transcanning' successors.

    Yes, the fenders appear to be backwards. Weird.

    I hope the stripe on the side of the trailer eventually gets some paint. If not, I'm sure reprolabels will help us out.

    I want those models badly. Prime's trailer continues to be a boring box that does nothing, sadly. Other than that no differences that would sway me to pay the extra.

    I hope that Voyager OP retool is release here in the US (of course without the trailer), that one looks better 100x than the one we're getting.

    Two things I must know: 1. Is the US getting that voyager with that trailer? 2. will deluxe car-modes be able to drive into it? If the answer is yes to one or both of those questions, he just became a must-buy. So far I'm up to sentinel prime, Shockwave, and (good-mold-willing) Soundwave. I have so many primes already, but that one just seems too cool.
    I wouldn't use the mech-reck ports I don't think, but I am already thinking of how I can convert that thing into a bitchin repair station.

    I JUST realized my auto correct replaced "Mech-tech" with Mech-reck.
    Autocorrect WIN.

    It's not (yeah it looks confusing because of the blue panel behind it.

    Movie Prime's hood is red with blue flames (with an orange fade). Because they didn't paint the blue panel behind it red as well, it looks backwards.

    However, so far we've had no confirmation of these supposed Masterpiece versions at all, other than Seibertron.com saying their sources told them so.

    judging by that prime I think we're going to get at least 2 versions of the main autobots. One version thats a normal car, one with the blast paneling/ boosters/ stealth force look going on.

    Just like with the wreckers and nitro bumblebee

    Frigging japan and their hiding figures from us for no reason. What a tease. It's like that with Japanese pornography too.

    But yeah figures look pretty much the same.

    Granted it represents a different style of Optimus without the Energy Shielding Armor, Though I kind of prefer the mechtech weapon that comes with the US voyager Prime. Its just his classic gun with missiles that load up and can be locked in place. Its just really different from the swords a lot of the movie primes including this retool favor.

    The trailer might be able to seperate into a battle mode. Could be worth Importing, if just to have to have that scale trailer.

    Want that Prime just for the vehicle mode. Looks to be the most movie-accurate trailer we're going to get.
