    Yeah I'm glad with the Hasbro version..but I DO like the plain silver face from the concept art better than the final movie head, though.

    This is one TF that I'd gladly take the Hasbro version..... that is, if I do buy it.

    I actually prefer my U.S. version. It may have looked better if they molded it in red and highlighted in silver.

    He looks like someone slapped the back of his head when he was blowing out the candles on his red frosting birthday cake.

    few? you have it the other way around. the vast majority of the time, the takara version of a figure looks 100% identical to the hasbro release.

    If you're talking about ROTF figures that's true, most other figures have at least something different.

    i should have been more clear, what i should have said is that this is one time when a takara figure is different to the hasbro version and actually worse. I was talking TF figures generally, not just rotf.
