My cousin told me these are finally on clearance at TRU. So I'm thinking about purchasing them, unless the Takaras are better. My question is: which is better - the Hasbro TRU Reissues or the Takara Book-Style Collector's Series Reissues? I already know that some Insecticons were re-named in the Hasbro and that the Takara Insecticons came with Energon Cubes. I've tried to find a definitive answer on various Transformer boards, even YouTube reviews, but nobody specifically compared the TRU to the Takara Reissues. For each set (Perceptor and Insecticons), I would like to have the following questions answered: 1) Which version (Hasbro or Takara) is constructed better (i.e. will hold up to multiple transformations)? 2) Are the materials the same in both versions (plastic, diecast, etc)? 3) Which version is closer to the original G1 toy (in appearance and molds used)? 4) Are the stickers worse on the TRU versions (in appearance and stickiness)? Thank you in advance for your kind advice to all who answer below.
