    We don't know yet.

    The HK version comes with a coin and display case but same as Takara. There is no official announcement on Hasbro set and what is not in it. We just know that it does not come with a trailer.

    I believe that, for the UK, the Hasbro one's been confirmed as Toys R Us exclusive.

    Not until we actually see the Hasbro version. So far all we know is that it will exist and it won't have the trailer. It could be identical to the Takara version or it could have different colors or paint applications (I kind of expect the Hasbro version to have those damn yellow horns on the helmet). There has been speculation that the Hasbro MP Hot Rod will have a Targetmaster partner, but that's only an unsubstantiated rumor at this point.

    I think it would just be marketed as just Hot Rod, Rodimus Major, or Hot Rodimus? Whatever his name is nowadays:lol

    Hong Kong Version is just a coin and a seperate box. I think MP9 Will be the same.

    HK versions are generally the same. Some people will tell you the QC is worse but actually they are pretty much the same. There are chances of getting 'duds' with both Japanese and Hong Kong versions.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro removes the Rodimus Prime face. Just to keep in line with their tendency to pretend he never existed (see also: Animated Rodimus Prime's demotion and the Hub skipping G1 season 3).

    Only as far as we know. There's some minor speculation that hasbro may get rid of that aspect of the figure, but its only speculation.
