    pretty much the same, depends on whether you like the japanese boxes better or not, and there are more figures in the japanese line that we didn't get over here

    I don't think there's much of a difference. Unless of course you're talking about Japanese exclusive releases, then Japanese is your only choice.

    It all depends on how much money you've got to burn... :lol 

    Scouring the 'bay, boxed Japanese G1s seem to be much rarer than Western-market boxed G1s. Unless you're referring to Headmasters/Masterforce/Victory/Zone, than they're pretty much the same.
