Definitely an improvement. Vehicle mode is a lot more cohesive and he features a lot more detail as does Steeljaw. Still wish his head crest was silver though.

It's a "gritting my teeth determined to beat Grimlock for leadership of the Autobots" look. Personally I like it. More expressive than all the blank stoic faces we get. Gives him a bit of personality.

Was able to grab one of these through Amiami, very glad to have him on the way. I find myself quite taken with the richer red, black wheels, and silver legs of the TT version over the slightly orange tinged, beige wheels and legs of the Hasbro version.

Now I just need the ArkTek rifle to be released and I'll be golden!

The grey that Takara used looks much better.

The grimace sucks so much !!

I like this mold and it's size so much for Blaster I might double dip and get the Takara version too. One for FOC shelf and one for the Classics shelf vs the Device Label USB Hub Blaster. I saw the Hasbro one in person and I was still convinced enough to buy that one on the spot. I have the Takara Soundblaster and it left me wishing it was more black than brown but it beats having that ugly yellow on it, though the Buzzsaw looks amazing.

I like Hasbro's a little better, aside from the white Autobot symbol. I feel like the gray on his back doesn't monkey with his head to shoulders silhouette the way Takara's red back piece does. And the gray wheels on the legs make Hasbro's legs look a bit more cohesive.

Definitely looks much better than the Hasbro one, but Device Label is still king.

Not being able to find the Hasbro version at retail made the decision to go with TT a little easier. Overall it looks quite a bit better, just not three-times-as-much better. Though I wish they hadn't painted over his lightpiped eyes.

*Edit* Nevermind, there's a pic on Alfe's blog that shows the lightpiping still works. Yay, still wish I could get this for less than $60 though.

I'm on Twitter for some reason! Hell if I know why.
