    Yeah... I don’t think so... I prefer the TFEVO one much better. It’s more accurate a looks a lot more cohesive I guess you would call it

    What's amazing is that DX9's seems to have the actual car exhaust pipes ending up in the back of his bot mode as oppose to TFEvo's faux pipes. Though I personally prefer TFevo's more..."fluid" look, if that's a thing.

    I've already PreOrdered TFEVO too.

    But damn, that K3 La Hire sure has big legs. The car seats for the action figure is a plus to me. I need to reconsider whether I will PO this K3 La Hire or not.

    From the comparison pic above, I still prefer the TFEVO version.

    It's still TFEvo by a landslide but this is a great human alliance transformer. Even comes with.... Vivian? I think that was her name.

    I'm with UT on this one. I do like the legs a bit better on Evo's but everything else more on UT's.

    I definitely prefer the look of tfevo's overall. But if ut's is a bit cheaper then I might have to go with it instead because its very nice as well. Ive never cared much for integrated interiors since it usually compromises the bot mode but they seem to have done it pretty well here.

    Damn, I wanted K3 to be DX9 T-Beast Optimus Primal, so I guess it will be K4 instead and may be released towards the end of the year.

    What is with 3P companies competing and not cooperating these days?

    I think I like the TFevo one more but this one comes with an inflatable doll (more movie accurate in that sense since that's how Bay basically depicts women in his TF films).

    There's something Hasbro-ish about UT/DX-9's Hot Rod. It looks very toy like but in a good way. ROTF era quality like another poster mentioned.

    I think I still prefer TFEVO's though.

    Sorry, but I'm talking about the depiction Bay does, not what the script has them do. Mikaela in the first movie, on paper, was a woman conscious about the unjust way males treat her because of her sex and was an active player in the story. What Bay's depiction did was water down that to some background words while Sam and the camera checked out Mikaela hot body under that hood. And those images are what most people remember about her character, not the dialogue or how integral she was to things ending with an autobot victory.

    And that first script also had other female roles that on paper were about challenging sexist views about what women can do (like the female hacker) or how incompetent men treat them (presidential aide told to fetch coffee for the president). How many remember that?

    Sorry but I’m literally only talking about tlk, where the figure for Vivian comes from

    DX9's take is a good Human Alliance version, but in every other aspect, TF Evo just stomps on them. Even ignoring the movie accuracy stuff going on, it's wayyyy cleaner overall and the sculpting is SUPERB. DX9's is just kind of amateurish in comparison.
