    just as the title says, are you going to get the american or japanese red rampage figure? after seeing the new scans, the japanese one looks SO much better.

    Im not a big fan of the Movie constructicons and there is only one i desire to own and thats Long haul but if i had to choose it would be the US version as the added costs associated with the Takara version just nullify the plus of the better paint apps

    The Japanese version does look a lot better, but it isn't a figure that I have enough interest in to spend more than $10 on, so Hasbro version it is for me.

    Definitely Hasbro's version. The shovel on Takara's is more accurate, but the gold/orange just looks really odd on it, imo. The price difference is also a factor for me.

    This.

    I love the metallic blade on the Japanese version, but I'll make do with Hasbro's. I'm just glad they're releasing it.

    Japanese, but I already own the figure in yellow and hate it with a passion, so I won't be picking up either.

    The silver on the Japanese version looks great, but the yellow (or whatever) on there is just god awful. Definitely the US version (which is cheaper for me anyways).

    Honestly, I'd want to go for Takara if it weren't for that gold paint on it. The shovel looks way cooler on the Takara one, so maybe I'll pick it up and re-paint the gold to red or something...

    I think I am just going to repaint my yellow one to red. Though I may pick up a red one and do less repainting on it.

    Same here. One will be "Rampage", and the other will be "Skipjack"

    Damn. I clicked on this thread expecting to say something like "why would I pay import for something almost exactly the same" buy the tak/tom version looks awesome and the hasbro version looks pretty lame by comparison.
