    Strictly speaking it's the Japanese release of Air Raid, but it's pretty much completely redone to be effectively a whole new deco.

    Damn. That paint almost makes me ok with Sideswipe and Ultra Magnus. Almost.

    Wow, I was happy with Hasbro's Air Raid, but if I have a spare $30, I might need to get Takara's also. That looks great. Also, tempted to get the more G1 deco of Takara's Kickback.

    If they were better quality toys I would spring for the Jap Decos. I might nab them down the line for my MOSC collection. Otherwise easy pass at the prices they have lined up.

    Good, I've been waiting for these. I hope to get Kickback, Sideswipe, and Starscream. Since I like these versions better than the Hasbro ones.

    Yuck. Ultra Magnus looks like he's at a rave or something, Sideswipe doesn't seem different enough to be notable, and Air Raid is just...inexplicable.

    Lol, Magnus has a Gunblade. That's cool.


    Anyways, nothing really new for me.

    Is it me... or...

    If you remove/hide the wings and add more black to the Hasbro version... you get a decent Rewind out of it.

    If you add green bits on Tak/Tom's FireFlight... and purple thights... you could get a decent Banzaitron?

    Ah, yes. I could swear I saw a pic above, by Starscream, of Air Raid that looked like a metallic version of the US release.
