I'm not sure if it's the lighting, but it looks like Optimus has brighter red and blue plastic.
Soundwave looks better than the other picture. He's obviously in G1 colors.
Starscream is kind of meh. I don't know why, but I'm actually kind of fond of the Hasbro version.
Bulkhead isn't too bad, but his weapon looks terrible. Had it gone unchanged, it would have been fine. Now it just makes him look more boring than he actually is.
combaticon164
Looks like the only one I would buy would be the Prime.
Yaujta
Shockwave's colors look deeper, but that could just be typical lighting tricks.
Sol Fury
I like the decos on most of them, but the Optimus is a definite buy for me. I'd been contemplating the toy - and the blue does it for me.
CrockAlley
Ugh, that OP looks so much better with the blue instead of green. If only we had know before the Hasbro version came out! Oh well. I remember when I used to wish that Hasbro would make more colorful versions of their toys like Takara (specifically thinking of the Mini-Con era).
Shatterpoint
Well, at least I know the only one I want is Soundwave. The others just look bland.

The color of the removable BH parts is much approved imo. The color is very nice. I think that if I had this Shockwave I would actually leave them on him for time to time... at least the "chest face" part. As it stands, when I do obtain Shockwave it will certainly be the Hasbro release, and I've already made a spot for those horrid red BH appendeges in my "will likely never be touched again" box.

Honestly, I've had little interest in BH Optimus so far, but again, this deco looks much more appealing to me. I'd consider grabbing him if he were a US release. TakTom must be trying to "come back" after their surprisingly inferior paint jobs on their versions of the last few waves of the Generations (pre-FOC) and RTS lines.

Dragotron? Doesn't work somehow for me as a name.

I must be in the minority that actually quite likes the green clear on Optimus. The rest do look a little better than the first pics we saw, but I still prefer the wackiness of the Hasbro versions if I go for any of them.
Flexx Ark
Predaking's claws on his hands and feet are darker than Hasbro's.
Girl Pants
I feel Wheeljack and Bulkhead have been made a bit more boring with these decos. Everyone else generally looks sleeker, shinier and better. Except Be, who I don't think is changed at all.

And it seems none of these have swirled plastic?
Mechafire
Meh. I wanna see those combiner dudes!
Stepper
Loving the date disk
Grimwing
Boring decos make me tired. Good Night.
AngryChad
These are infinitely better than the Hasbro versions.
Stepper
We shall see those characters so called Power Up in the upcoming episodes of PRIME

I like the green too.

I really thought the Takara Predaking would have all his black wing paint apps put back on..
Stepper
Not much changes to Bulkhead except the face

The color scheme is completely different....
SPLIT LIP
So Predaking's big change is a darker grey. Meh.

They're all meh 'cept for Optimus who doesn't really look better, just cool. I want to know about the combiners.
Transmetal
So they showed all the ones I could care less about. Where is the Smokescreen? I wanna know if the Hasbro version is as show accurate as he gonna get.
[Wing_Saber-X]
It's a shame that Ttomy didn't do anything significantly different for Predaking. sigh. Oh well, at least that Prime looks decent...
Vampyr
mmm, i will keep the takara shockwave i think, the metallic finish looks prime

I couldn't have said it better myself.

And then the comment under yours goes and says they're the best thing ever. *sigh*
NemiMonkey
If he retains those colors I'd really like to get that soundwave. I'm perfectly fine with homages, but machine wars colors on the prime fig just don't work for me.

Also if those are close to the final colors for starscream I can see a lot of people doing Swoop as minor repaint jobs.
X Nightmare
The blue sword is great!
Líder Optimus
I didn't collect Prime or PRID and don't really have any interest in BH. I just wish to see those combiner.
Optimist_Prime
The blue looks good on Optimus, but not good enough for me to drop like $50 on him. I am also surprised than Takara didn't add the black detailing on Predaking's wings like the US package shows.
Rodimus Billionaire
I like this color scheme A LOT better.
Cheebs
Most of those are pretty boring, but Shockwave totally kills. In Starscream and Soudwave's case, I think boring works better than awful, so there's that, too.
Crystal Convoy
Most of these look much better than their Hasbro counterparts. I much prefer the unified colorschemes. Will probably end up getting most of these versions instead of the Hasbro ones. Especially since I only seem to be able to find BB here.
Wu Jen
Retail for this Optimus is 4,200 yen, and my preorder for MP-17 and MP-18 was 4,300 yen each.

I do like the colors on Optimus, Soundwave, Bulkhead and Starscream just not = to the price I paid for a MP.

Shockwave I do not care for the blue, hope that is just the lighting, I prefer the Hasbro Purple over it.
Sarge133
So shockwave looks more...blue? or is it a metallic finish? I have a preorder down for one but not sure if I should get it since I have the hasbro one already and i don't see much of a difference.

Prime is a definite buy for me. and I'm hoping Smokescreen has the proper paint apps.

Heres hoping that Ripclaw gets a Ser-Ket paintjob!
Smashs
Wow, Voyager OP looks infinitely better.
General Tekno
Prime and Shockwave look fantastic. Especially Shockwave- that repainted beast armor looks AMAZING.
Sideways77
I never noticed Soundwave was in G1 colors. That's neat.
bman29
Shockwave looks better with the beast bits in the black than the maroonish with Hasbro release. Guess I'll be getting the paint out. Optimus is a good figure, but better when you give it some paint details. Sharpens up nicely. The other I can't see doing, but maybe Soundwave. But the Hasbro one can be a nice stand in for Jetstorm from Beast Machines when you keep his legs together. I've seen Bulkhead at the store and it just is fugly and Starscream still looks too insect like for my taste.
shroobmaster
Optimus and Starscream looks muuuuch much better. I can't wait to see what they do with Smokescreen, love the mold but colors are gurk.
Shatterblast
It looks like they may have changed Shockwave's "ears" to gray instead of black, which is pretty nice, I want them to be silver but I've never had any luck painting rubbery bits.
Stygian360
Loved the idea of the data disks until I got the whole set in hand. Compared to the masterpiece minions these are plastic turds, especially (the one I really wanted to love) rhinohorn. May package them all up and get rid of them as a set, including their Voyager tape deck masters. Inevitably Takara will get around to making Blaster and HIS minions in the Masterpiece line, then we'll really be cooking with gas. However, these FOC minion 'pretenders' are utter crap.
Paarthurnax
Shockwave is BLUE???


Either my monitor is messed up or I need to go have my eyes checked. I know purple shows up as blue a lot on computers so I hope it's just the pictures.
Darkspeed
Oh man, I am liking these colour schemes so much more than the Hasbro release. Still not convinced to buy them, but a definite improvement.
Dinodigger97
I miss the Microns already.
Soundwinder
Soundwave looks better than the Hasbro version still, but worse than the smaller picture.

I actually like US Wheeljack better. This one is too dull.

The cassettes look nice with extra paint.

Couldn't be assed to look at the rest. Don't care.

Ditto.

Don't miss the stickers, though.
RedAlert Rescue
Indeed some of those stickers are the work of an evil mind.
Solrac333
Damn! Shockwave looks awesome. Even the crappy beast hunter pieces look good on him. Prime looks great and even Soundwave. Takara wins again.
Sarge133
I'd say hasbro won shockwave. Takara's is way too blue. Now when hands on pics come out and he's a metallic purple? Yeah takara wins shockwave too.
bny888
Optimus, Shockwave, Dragontron, Starscream are the ones I'd l
definitely like to have.
