    It's a "gritting my teeth determined to beat Grimlock for leadership of the Autobots" look. Personally I like it. More expressive than all the blank stoic faces we get. Gives him a bit of personality.

    Was able to grab one of these through Amiami, very glad to have him on the way. I find myself quite taken with the richer red, black wheels, and silver legs of the TT version over the slightly orange tinged, beige wheels and legs of the Hasbro version.

    Now I just need the ArkTek rifle to be released and I'll be golden!

    The grey that Takara used looks much better.

    The grimace sucks so much !!

    I like this mold and it's size so much for Blaster I might double dip and get the Takara version too. One for FOC shelf and one for the Classics shelf vs the Device Label USB Hub Blaster. I saw the Hasbro one in person and I was still convinced enough to buy that one on the spot. I have the Takara Soundblaster and it left me wishing it was more black than brown but it beats having that ugly yellow on it, though the Buzzsaw looks amazing.

    I like Hasbro's a little better, aside from the white Autobot symbol. I feel like the gray on his back doesn't monkey with his head to shoulders silhouette the way Takara's red back piece does. And the gray wheels on the legs make Hasbro's legs look a bit more cohesive.

    Definitely looks much better than the Hasbro one, but Device Label is still king.

    Not being able to find the Hasbro version at retail made the decision to go with TT a little easier. Overall it looks quite a bit better, just not three-times-as-much better. Though I wish they hadn't painted over his lightpiped eyes.

    *Edit* Nevermind, there's a pic on Alfe's blog that shows the lightpiping still works. Yay, still wish I could get this for less than $60 though.

    Personally if I got this, I would pop out the wheels from the Hasbro one and shove them on this. It just seems right to give this blaster some gold rims...

    Not too much difference, although would have liked a red autobot symbol.. suffice to say I am glad I found Blaster at all, most collectors in my area never seen him in stores.

    Same here. Personally, I just don't see this fig as being different enough from the Hasbro one to warrant the $50-60 import cost. That's just me though.

    Now if Takara does a Twincast repaint and Hasbro doesn't...I'm in.

    Maybe I should place a red auto logo on my HABRRO Voyager Blaster.

    I prefer TakTomy, will probably get it. The warface grin is weird though.. Sure can be cool with a face that isn't a blank emotionless slate but I don't see this face fitting Blasters personality. a smirk or something would fit better imo.
    Save the warface for guys like Blades, Slag, Terrorcons etc.
