Takara TG-29 Generations Sandstorm revealed

TG-29 Sandstorm has been listed at Ehobby, featuring the G1 two-toned orange deco rather than the orange/yellow used for the US release. There are other color shifts as parts cast in yellow and black blastic on the Hasbro release have been rendered in orange for the Takara version. There are also paint deco differences such as a painted silver brushguard, centrally alligned Autobot symbol, and lack of black paint covering the waist.

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

He looks naked with the orange in place of some of the black.

It does look nice but I already have the Hasbro one. It's around $60 anyways.

My collection
My original series WIP!

Not gonna lie, kinda wish the went with a Machine Wars color scheme.

This is just too similar for me to justify buying.

Bright orange on orange rather than yellow on orange, just like G1. About what I figured they'd do. Between the Springer, Blitzwing, and this one, this is the one I'd be most likely to pick up, but I'll have to see how my funds are around December.

It's a nice color scheme, but so was the hasbro.

I'm not sure it justifies an extra $30.

I like the silver detailing, that's it. That's like the second time a Hasbro deco was superior to TakaraTomys.

Yeah, I'm not feeling this one, content with the Hasbro version.

For those that are interested, AmiAmi already has their preorder up:

Wow what a difference. It seems to not stand out as much. The Hasbro one just contrast so good. The Colors work so well together and just pop so much more on the Hasbro. Glad I'm getting that version.

Awesome Pic done for me by my love.

I was wondering what the hell was up with HLJ's preorder for a "Thunderstorm", glad it's not some new figure and just their Sandstorm. That said I do prefer this deco to hasbro's, but still not enough to get me to buy it.
