    I'm getting the RTS. I feel there is too much purple in the United version.

    Keep in mind that the animated was mostly purple. That said i prefer the hasbro version because it is closer to the TFA Atomic Lugnut repaint and i prefer that color scheme much more than the original. I just need to find him at retail now.

    I'm getting the Hasbro one. It has more muted colors for a world war bomber, (with jet engines) And other than the tiger teeth from animated atomic lugnut , I think its more representative of the animated cartoon model cast into a detailed grit mecha universe. From what I've seen its a astoundingly different transformation with the massive wings forming the arms, and tons of clip system points to guarantee your play time.

    I may buy a couple of them.

    I'm personally leaning towards the RTS version as well. I feel the United version's green is too dark. I like the purple on it, but the green makes the overall figure feel not right.

    Going with RTS on this one. While I love the actual vibrant colors of the United version, I feel that that muted colors on the RTS version suit it better.

    Now if he would only flipping come out at retail........

    Def RTS, the United version doesn't look anywhere as nice as it does in that picture the OP posted.

    RTS pretty much because the colors don't clash as much as the Takara one, which tried too hard and missed.

    I am going with the RTS version, a new color scheme doesn't justify the price hike for the United version in my opinion and according to a lot of reviews I've been reading over, a lot of fan's feel the new paint isn't worth the price hike between RTS and United either.

    Hasbro's actually looks like Lugnut. Thus we have a winner.

    Provided I see him in stores, Hasbro.

    I don't buy figures online so it's a no-brainer. Plus I haven't seen enough decent photos of the United version to develop any thoughts on that one.

    United. It's less realistic, no doubt there, i just find the RTS one a little drab.


    ...but if i find the RTS version locally, i may get that too.

    If I decide to pick one up, it's going to be United.

    I'm almost to the point where I can't stand Hasbro products anymore. I want a shelf of distinct, vibrant robots. And Hasbro has really taken measures to strive for the bland and drab.

    I don't want a shelf full of blah.
