Nice, I far Prefer the Cyberton Version
Makes me very glad i didn't spend the vast pile of cash required to get the GF limted edition one (I very, very nearly did).
Ouch. Poor show, Takara.
the flames are sweet.
And again the US gets the better paint scheme! Hasbro, your finaly doing us right!
A collective "Ha-ha!" in Nelson-esq voices for Takara-Tomy.
has this been released allready?
Go to the litter box and await WST Ravage.
Man, that toy is so bad ass looking. I can't wait to get it.
I'm still not interested in buying it, but man the Hasbro version looks so much better then the GF version it's pathetic. Awesome.
I wish that the Cybertron version had a red chest like the GF version, to look more like the origianal Hot Rod. Otherwise, I prefer everything about the Cybertron version.
Awesome... glade to see that we got the better version for a change. I like the black better instead of the deep red they gave the Takara version.
crikey! just asking
Huh. I actually like the GF version better. The dark red screams "Rodimus", which I suppose this repaint is supposed to remind us of?
I think I like the red chest on the GF version better. And I wish they'd stuck with yellow wings for the Cyb version, but other than that it's fantastic. I'm buying two.
Interesting, I'm surprised to see how many folks like the Hasbro version better. Although I'm not a fan of the red wheels, the Takara version has:
- a thought-out deco on the spoiler
- a richer, more vibrant red (could be the pictures)
- the burgundy on the chest/face that matches the overall deco
- more pronounced yellow deco on the shins (that looks like it's supposed to be there)
- clear front headlights
- red windows that match the overall deco
I'm not digging the Hasbro flames too much, and I think the Takara version displays more attractively in bot mode. Nevertheless, I look forward to displaying them together when this guy comes out!
they painted over the headlights in ALt mode???? WTF?????
actually, i think i mostly like the Takara one better, although a combo of the two would be best ~ Hasbro Flames, Hasbro grey wheels and forearms and toes, the Takara darker red plastic (the Hasbro one looks a little too 'Orangish' in these pix to me), and Dark Red chest and head, the Takara paint aps are nicer in 'bot mode, and the Hasbro one could use the yellow on the car mode spoiler from the original that the takar one has...
still, it's not worth the $100 or whatever it takes to get
I guess I'm in the minority here, but I like Takara's more. Still gonna get the Cybertron version because the other one is too expensive for what it is.
didnt notice the headlights, that a bit lame.
Good job Hasbro!
