    Yeah I see what you mean, but if you liked it before there is no reason why you shouldn't like it now. I mean if you buy it, it's not like you're going to be comparing it to the TakaraTomy one.

    I have the TakaraTomy one (two in fact) and I plan on getting the Amazon one too.

    ...but then again one could easily say that you are now stuck with the Amazon one and so you are justifying your purchase also :)

    That's not a painted line, it's the edges of his chest panels that open up toreveal his chest cannon.

    Also, does anyone care to upload pics of Kranix? (I know, Me = :crazy: )

    The Takara 2010 and the Hasbro 25th Ann. TF:TM version both look AWSOME IMHO,They both have different styles, and I like them both. But I'm getting the Hasbro one, cuz :2c:  is pretty much all the money I have! :lolol

    Far as being stuck, yeah, I'm still stuck trying to figure out which Unicron is the definitive one, and at the moment I'm still leaning toward the Amazon version. :) 

    I'd have no problems throwing down for the 2010, even at its current price, if I felt that that was the better choice. I had a chance to pick it up when it first came out, but for some reason, I wasn't moved to. When I saw pics of this one, I was more motivated. It's all subjective, but it's the reason I went for the black 25th Snake Eyes (instead of the "cartoon-accurate" purple one), or the the Reveal the Shield Cyclonus instead of the Henkei "toon-accurate" version, which I eventually sold.

    As of now I have mostly Henkei/United and Takaratomy Masterpiece figs in my collection, so I'll go with the imports if I feel they're better. In this case, though, when you look at the side-by-side comparison, the brighter orange just feels really off, at least to me. The subdued yellow/gold looks much more accurate.

    When I mentioned the people justifying their purchases, I mostly meant the people who came on here just to say, "That one sucks! I'm so glad I have the ____ version!" without actually saying why.

    I know, I meant the yellow line in the middle of his chest is not a rectangle like the takara 2010 one, instead, it has a segment that "spills out" on each side.

    I don't think there's any question: The Takara version is best. And unfortunately I'm back to wanting that one. The Amazon one just doesn't look right.

    Oh well, maybe Takara will reissue Unicron again.

    The silver face is an 86 homage. It's civil war chess unicron.

    This is so sweet. So glad I didn't drop the benjamins on the Takara release. Everything should be available at Amazon. Sweet!

    actually, I'm leaning toward sticking with my armada one. Takara got the Orange wrong and it's a fortune, and this amazon one needs the gray and white.... I already have one with a slightly dodgy paint job ;)

    I'm sooooooooooo glad I have the Takara 2010 Unicron. The Amazon one is sucky.

    I have been thinking of what Unicron to purchase, I am not sure I need to shell out 150 for the Takara version though it is rather awesome. Id rather 150 go towards a greater transformer. Trypticon.

    My Unicron and Trypticon are right next to each other.

    I plan on buying the Amazon one to replace my Universe 25th version.

    I get a G1 Unicron prototype vibe from the Amazon version, was that the intent of the deco?
