    I've noticed so far, that Blurr, Drift (slightly), Grapple, and Straxus have different paint jobs than their Gen. counterparts. I'm hoping that Tracks will have a more G1 emblem on his hood and maybe Scourge will be darker colored and more purple than white. Anyone else pulling for this? Also, has there been any other confirmed diffs in paint jobs from Generations to United figures.

    I saw all 10 toys for first waveTF United yesterday.... Definitely paint different from Hasbro version.... Much more beautiful for the Japanese version....
    No chroming though, but metallic paint...

    I think I remember what you're remembering too, though I can't think of the link or pics that confirmed it.

    No no no!!!!!!! They will be much to lovely not to display, the packaging might be nice and openable and re-sealable like the Henkei's :D  Or you could just buy two of each I guess!

    Takara United = to display.

    Hasblo = to ignore.

    As most of the new toys will likely not show up officially in my country I'll end up having to import them regardless........in which case I'd sooner go the extra mile and get the ones that look like the manufacturers actually give a shit about giving the customer a decent product.

    Most of the Takara versions are completely ignorable.

    Ok, quick question, I know this may sound somewhat silly but why do the Japanese versions go beyond the mile than what us US folks get? For one part paint apps are much better quality than the US release counterparts and the detailing is far more beyond than US releases.

    They're not a better quality, but there are more of them most of the time. You can still get an imported figure that has poor paint apps and if you do, then you're three times as unlucky as you would be if you bought the Hasbro version.

    I think it has to do with which company is taking charge of that particular line. We got RID and Unicron Trilogy figures with more paint apps because Takara was producing the molds and the tie-in animated cartoons.

    Being in Japan, I feel that transformers here aren't what they are in the states. Over in Japan we get many things that the U.S. doesn't because of the audience. While America focuses on small children for the most part, Japan's figures and exclusives seem to aim for a more mature audience of collectors. Most of the time when I pick up figures here there are many adults buying the toys, although they could be parents usually a lot of these guys are the hardcore nerds who get everything. This is just my opinion.

    United Tracks does indeed come with his more G1 flame deco on the hood. It looks really nice. So glad I pre-ordered that instead of waiting for the Hasbro one to show up. Much like Henkei, I think I'll be going with United for almost all of them again this time.

    ^This. Although with the Hasbro Tracks, all we need is Reprolables stickers to make him more "G1" like. :D

    Google united tracks. You get your wish.

    Along with a somewhat odd metallic blue finish.
