    Im looking to buy a Waspinator, but I'm not sure which one to get. The takara 10th anniversary or the hasbro 10th anniversary. Which is a better show accurate version?

    btw: I just got my Takara Dinobot which aside from the Hasbro version, this one has teeth.

    I think the BWX one is, but I'm by no means a BW fan. Anybody else?

    Based on the pics I've seen, the new Takara one is the most show-accurate, but there's not a particularly huge difference between it and Hasbro's BW10th.

    Not sure anyone here owns the Takara one yet. Aren't they still preorders or did they come out in Japan already?

    let's try again:

    This appears to be a more final version of the Takara toy.

    Here's the Hasbro version with the correct head up.

    And the Hasbro wasp mode for good measure (predacon symbol is smaller on the released toy)

    Main differences I see are green shoulders/crotch, which are yellow on the Hasbro version (shoulders are part yellow, part green in the show, crotch green) and the Takara version has more show-accurate paint apps on the face and legs. I added black antennae stripes to my Hasbro waspy, and officially deemed him 'close enough' that I don't feel any need to import another Waspy. Not sure if it's easier/cheaper to get a new Takara, or aftermarket Hasbro at this time though.

    The hasbro one looks good to me, but I aint into hunting down too many Jap versions of em. But the Takara does remind me of the look in the show, the way the green always looked smooth and slick. Go for the takara if you can but don't be upset if you get a hasbro.

    The Takara one does indeed look better, but I have the BWX version and really can't see buying another at this time.*sigh*

    Yep, I dont think you'd lose much with either one but I guess out of the 2, the takara one looks better(thats usually the case).

    Ebay:
    I only have Megs and Primal right now and I love them both, even though Primal is equal in size to everyone else but the detail makes up for it I think. But from looking at Waspinator I think I might get him next.
