    Hey everyone,
    I'm looking into buying a version of War for Cybertron Megatron from amazon, (yeah, I know I'm slow!) but I'm not sure which one to get. Should I get the Takara one, I believe from the United line, (which is UN-04 Megatron) or should I get the Hasbro version, I believe from the generations line? I think they both look good, and I'm not sure which is more accurate. Thank you!

    Takara might be more accurate, but I think the colors look kinda pooey. I'd go for Hasbro.

    I could not agree more with this. Best use of that mold. The black and purple really work well together.

    As for the Takara vs Hasbro, I personally like Hasbro's lighter colors. It can look a bit bland, but I think the colors Takara use just make him look covered in dirt. It's up to you, though. Just look at both and pick whichever colors you like best.

    I have the Hasbro version and the Darkside version. Out of the two, I think the Hasbro version has the best color scheme. I honestly don't understand the appeal of the Darkside Megatron. His paint scheme is far from accurate, and the fiction behind the toy makes no sense.

    Darkside Black Convoy is freakin awesome though...but that's beside the point.

    You can't go wrong with either one. I have the Hasbro version of Megatron and it looks great in hand.

    Hasbro. The Takara Megatron looks terrible and is nowhere near accurate.

    For all the WFC figures I'd suggest Takara. They have better detailing that looks like the energon glow from the game.

    Because dull brownish grey just leaps out at you, dun'it?

    Except for, as it so happens, Megatron, as that comparrison up there quite nicely shows. Hell, the Decepticon symbol is just a purple shape on the Takara version.

    Hasbro. The Takara one is way too dark.


    Not even. In the game he's definitely not that color. The lighting makes him look dark but he's actually much closer to the white like the Hasbro version has.

    Yeah, I think the Hasbro looks better to me now. When you look at the game Megatron, the colors are more accurate. But I do like the Takara one, too. Thank you very much, everyone!

    Hasbro!
    Is it worth the price Amazon is charging for it?
    I am looking for one too since I passed on it which was a huge mistake for me.
