    Hm, they definitely look better here. Bulkhead looks shinier compared to Prime.

    Optimus and Bulkhead look a lot better and might be worth the bumped up price, but Bumblebee and Megatron makes me worried that only a few figures in the line will get the premium treatment. :(

    I got a feeling that TakaraTomy is going to come out 2nd Edition of their own as well.

    Bulkhead does look a lot better in those colors!:thumb  I mught get that version if the price is reasonable!:)  Prime looks good too but I might stick to his Hasbro version instead though. The rest look identical to their Hasbro counterparts.

    WOW! the blacks on the starscream look much better than the greys in the USA edition.... but not THAT much better, Bulkhead on the other hand is a thing of F'ing beauty!

    Voyager OP = must buy Hasbro version as well as BB; Neo-scan BB odd in lighter yellow, wrong stripes; vehicon will be a sweet army builder; Bulkhead still looks like DOTM Leadfoot brother; Arcee: riding the fence on; anorexic SS looks good with darker colors but not enough to buy

    Arcee's more accurate to the show - her forearms are painted blue, rather than the US one's black.

    Not to knock Hasbro, but it is an improvement to the deco, and it balances out the colours of the toy better.

    Bulkhead turned out awesome. He's not as accurate but he looks better. Everyone else is either barely/not changed or looks worse.

    Well that photo of Arcee was made monthes ago so it's not really the picture of the offical Takara product. We'll probably see some differences once we have photos of the actual Takara Arcee toy. Besides we can always paint the Hasbro Arcee's forearms blue ourselves!:thumb

    Vehicon confirmed for not having a buttflap? At least a smaller one than initially shown, anyway.

    Really not sure about shiny Bulkhead...

    Why is he the only one bringing the shiny?

    they really like making their bulkhead/ironhides forest green over there. aside from him the rest of the bunch are minor changes only and really not worth the inflated prices

    Nice pictures, but I rather wait for comparison of real toys.

    Remember, they have photoshop too in Japan. Better wait for in-hand images.

    I think he's quite a bit darker than the Hasbro version in the show, isn't he? Offhand, he looks more screen accurate, but I suppose we need comparison pics to be sure.

    Biographies of the characters, reference the fact that vehicle modes are similar to their Bayverse counterparts.

    Well, nobody's perfect...
