    I like that Strafe. Nosecone makes me sad though.

    I am going to stay with the Takara model on this one, I just think their colors and molds are more inspired.

    So they are using UW Afterburner's head.

    Renders always causing drama.

    The only reason I would buy this set is for Scrounge, and to Frakenstein Afterburner with Takara's version to make Computron more cartoon accurate.

    I'd buy the Hasbro version for the hands, feet, and afterburner.

    YAY more repaints! This line is really losing its appeal fast with this shit.
    Hasbro addresses the fact they went repaint heavy and yet more repaints.
    They address the fact things are costing more because of oil, oil crashes, and prices still go up.

    HA! Afterbreaker does have the new head after all. I was already sold but this is just icing. Almost as delicious as all the fanboy rage.

    So, taking a new tally, it's three toys out of the set with new heads-- Afterbreaker, Strafe, and Scrounge. Not a bad tally by Hasbro standards.

    I think Takara juuuuuuuuust edges it out on this end, but I feel like I could go either way on this, especially since this version has the upgraded feet and hands, plus there are some good figures here.
