    Does he have the loose knee issue some Hasbro Astrotrains have?

    My only problem with this one is that the titanmaster arms should be another color so the roundness of the helmet stands out. It kinda looks like his head is square like this. But it's just a matter of switching them with another titanmaster.

    I can only speak for my particular version, but no, the Takara version doesn't have that issue....whereas I had to apply some Future to my Hasbro one.

    Ugh, I wish I knew what similar products I can use on mine. I don't think they sell Future cleaning products where I live and the ones I've checked don't seem to contain silicon (which is what's useful according to what I've read?)

    You don't want silicone. That's a lubricant. You want acrylic. Future (now Pledge) is an acrylic floor polish.

    Looks so damn good. Anyone have a comparison with the Hasbro release?

    I was thinking about acrylic but for some reason I switched the two around, I'm a dummy :oops: 

    I'll have to check if Pledge's sold under other names in south america.
