ok, I missed the bandwagon on TRU and Takara reissues...and am looking at acquiring some of the ones that I missed. But looking at prices of some of the ones that I had as a child are going more then the original without a box?!? (WTF AT TAKARA JAZZ??) So I would like to know....why are the Takara ones more expensive then the US TRU Commemorative editions aside from just the import costs? I can get 2 TRU reissues for the price of one Takara release. Are there differences in molds aside form the standard fare like shorter smoke stacks on the convoy molds. And finally which would you choose. Bite the bullet and get the Takara version.....or does not matter and get the TRU.
