    It's between the 20 Anniversary or the 20th Anniversary DVD editions. Im looking to invest in one and i would like to know which one is better. What are the differences between them besides the fact that one comes with a dvd, and that their guns are different colors.

    The DVD version is colored like a tomato, uck. Get the other version, or wait for the better scaled KO.

    20th anniversary, takara mp01, or takara mp01 with trailer are all good picks.

    MP-04 is the best cause it comes with the trailer, but MP-01 will do the trick too if you don't want/need the trailer.

    Of the American releases, I would go with the original 20th Ann. release. As stated above, the colors and paint apps on the DVD release are kinda wonky. Also the display base looks kinda cool, but doesn't really add much, and the voice in the voice clips isn't even Peter Cullen.

    So yeah, 20th Ann. release is the way to go if you can't find for can't afford the Takara releases.

    MP-04, especially when you swap guns with MP-02 :) 

    BTW, are there QC issues and differences between the MP-04 and MP-01 bots or are they more or less identical?

    I have MP04, the one with the trailer, and although the price is steep it's really worth it. MY only complaints would be the price, no Roller, and a grey gun. You get a metal MP prime with no battle damage and long smoke stacks, plus a scaled trailer that has a lot of detail. Also you can stack a G1 prime w/ trailer on top of the mp trailer, then ths covoy w/ trailer on top of that, and finally wst prime w/ trailer on top of that. Truly and epic, and expensive, pile of primes to behold.

    I only own 20th DVD Prime. So I'd recommend him.

    MP-04 is the best, but out of the two US versions u've mentioned, get the 20th anniversary (not the dvd one)
