    Great Review! Still sticking with my Hasbro with Reprolabels one...I like the Uniteds shiny paint tho.

    Lighting...I think it works well, aside from with whites. Tracks head seemed to get swallowed in the background. May be just me, but I dont recall that happening with your old setup. Other than that....definitely brighter!

    Wishes the US release has the classic flames as well :(  Although the two autobot symbols in a row is redundant. And smooth move making fun of the Japanese on the day they get hit with a tsuanami. :p

    I like the US version better, personally. The tribal flames/lightning looks AWESOME. The United's decal looks too much like Rodimus'. Saw this (as well as Prime, BB, et al) at Target yesterday, and sooooo wished I had cash to waste on all of the new releases...

    As good as United Tracks look, I will stay with my 2 Gen Tracks and get Reprolabel for one of them.

    I don't know if I agree 100% with that, but if you're going to get only one United release, I'd say Tracks is the on who gains the most from the shiny paint.

    I received RtS Tracks and Jazz from BBTS last week. And even though I never even bothered to open either, I just felt these are sub par compared to United. I would regret not getting United Tracks and Jazz, so I bought them on e-Bay last week too. And I'm definitely aching to get them too! Probably sell on RtS Tracks and Jazz...

    I've told the botimus my opinion several times but if you're gonna spend an extra $11.50 to get the reprolabels set, then you might as well spend the extra $10 on top of that and get the better paint on United Tracks.

    Now if you like the Hasbro tribal flames, then more power to ya. Personally I think they look horrible.

    While I do admit that the blue paint looks fantastic on the United version, there doesn't seem to be any other reason to get it over the Hasbro release, unless that rubsign bothers you that much. I could also care less for the either version of the flame deco, the Hasbro version being too 80's and the Takara one too 90's for an updated Tracks.
    Also it seems that the light-piping comes out more in the United version.

    United Tracks is in the mail, for me the extras over the RTS version makes it a no brainer. I really don't agree with the reviewer, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
