    New head, but I think everyone expected that. The gun seems to have pegs on the side too?

    Now its time to decide how much I want Scrounge. Definitely getting the UW version, but should I double dip for the Legends...

    It looks like Strafe is a different mold from the Hasbro version. There are fins on the side that aren't on the Air Raid mold and the thighs aren't as thick. I suspect it's a retool of Blast Off.

    None of the Japanese sets have had Legends so not unexpected.

    Sky Reign wants to know when he's coming out in Japan!

    I hope they aren't using Blast Off for an arm there, but looks good. Interesting to see they using standard CW handguns.

    So far I was fine with the Hasbro versions of the Combiners up to this point. However, it seems like Computron might be the first Takara version I will be getting since the Hasbro version has more problems to me personally compared to the previous releases. The only thing that might make me still go towards the Hasbro version is Scrounge even though I have no personal attachment to the character, I think it will still be a cool thing to have in my collection.

    I'm hoping they do Liokaiser next. Need more Decepticon combiners.

    Yup. It's using the Breakdown/Wheeljack mold and Blast Off mold. Even just from the silhouette there are quite a few changes from the Hasbro version I can already see.

    I already know I'm going with this version, no questions asked. I just need to find a way to get Scrounge without buying the Hasbro boxset.

    Looks promising, but it’s gonna be a Takara Tomy Mall exclusive so I won’t even bother getting excited for this.
