    The lack of rotating turrets is, frankly, a deal breaker for me. His robot mode has gun turrets on his arms and they're pointing the wrong way to be of any use for him. I wanted to want this guy, but there's no way I'm paying retail prices for it. If I stumble upon him at Ollie's or something, I'll pick him up, but I guess Omega Supreme is going to be my only Titan-class figure for now...

    That seems a lot oranger (and I like it!)

    I assume it’d be the same as Hasbro, but which photos are correct?

    That’s due to Takara pictures always have darker lighting, go off the hasbro pics for what the final product will be.

    Only real difference is Mainframe's visor and the globe being blue.

    Shame, this looks WAY better to me. (still has all the inherent problems of the mold, mind you, but at least looks "correct" color-wise here)

    Why couldn't the actual figure have blue clear plastic?

    Don't be wishing on any monkey's paws. If they add clear plastic, they might make those parts of it fragile.

    It's already clear orange. Blue looks much better.

    *looks at price* FUUUUUUUUUU....

    Apparently. Wow. $280.00 when converted to USD. MSRP (USD) is $169.99...

    For the titans they are really expensive, so I always buy the titans off of amazon USA and import it to Japan. Even with shipping it comes out cheaper than buying it direct from Takara tomy . Smaller stuff its about the same though.

    Ouch. On the plus side, you do get it earlier. I'm not sure why Takara-Tomy has to wait to release stuff or if they choose to, but it sucks for fans in the region. I hope you can find one at a good price, though. Good luck!

    Except this has the yellow paint apps in red and the clear plastic is blue instead of yellow. I'm confident the orange will stick.

    Technically they're both accurate. The Ark was yellow in the pilot, then it was orange throughout the show for the exterior and interiors.
