    Looks great! Happy to see the shiny paint is applied consistent this time.

    I likes the shiny red paint, but I don't think I'd import him just for that.

    Nice.
    I think those Autobot symbols on his shoulders are the best representation of lights I've seen yet.
    It's far, far better than the "pink = red light" of the WfC Hasbro toy.

    I was going to get this, I even had it preordered at one point. But I've been gradually realizing I just don't like the base mold very much (I have the US version).

    This is nice though. It's always possible I'll end up ordering him.

    When ever they decide to make War Within/MTMTE molds I'll buy, these are just crap in my opinion

    Making it shiny doesn't make it not shit.

    Wow this looks SO much better with decent colors. Would it kill Hasbro to put out figures that are colored in a way that takes advantage of the figures's potential much more? Someone does a good job designing them only so they can be mass produced looking cheap and costing more for us in USA. Shame...

    It looks nice, although I have a Hasbro version on the way to me (because spoiler: it's way cheaper). I have Jazz and Shockwave though, and, especially with Jazz, I've noticed that the plastic is indeed cheaper on the FoC figures. I'd like to know if the plastic quality is higher on the TakaraTomy version, or if the extra cost is just all paint job. The latter is quite possible. A similar example would be Henkei Prowl - I bought the Henkei version because I preferred it, but it still had the sticky paint problem that the Hasbro version had, so there's evidence that quality control problems and overall quality may not necessarily be higher on a TakaraTomy release, just that the paint job is much better.

    I would still love a Voyager-sized Optimus Prime and Megatron for WfC/FoC. It seems odd to me that they would make Grimlock and, of all things, Soundwave, as Voyagers, but not Megatron and Optimus. Grimlock I can understand, and I'm glad Soundwave got a Voyager, but you would think the priority would be on the leaders.
