    So the Takara Version comes with an extra accessory? Well.

    I don't think you understood my question. Since you got most of us alarmed that the head Nitro comes with falls off because of the rubberized plastic port and base, it would be nice to know if standard titan master heads would also be loose fitting and fall off. Can you confirm whether or not that this issue with Nitro's head will be the same issue we'll experience with all titan masters?

    Thats very strange that your wings are coming off as they should be pinned on. Is your figure missing pins in the connection to wings?

    The actual colors of these Dinobot figures are getting weirder and weirder, even with the toned down palette used

    I cannot confirm, like I said, there are so many. I can confirm that the socket on my Nitro Zeus has a lot of give.

    The only possible saving grace would be that the other TMs have molded details and faces on their posts, where as NZ's smooth with just the two side notches and they don't provide enough of a lock to hold his head in like TR figures do.

    To give you an example of how bad my NZ is, I can barely touch it and his head will come off. TR Scourge and High Brow are both bobble heads when it comes to their TMs, and even they keep their heads on, my NZ does not.

    It also doesn't help that while the neck socket is rubber, the neck post on my NZ's head is ridiculously tight. You combine the two and I'd imagine the socket's getting worse.

    Apparently, not every NZ is like mine, which is a good thing. I may have just gotten a lemon, along with Baltmatrix's.

    You are correct.
    Optibotimus reviewed it. It's the artwork on the inside of the box.

    Thanks. Did Optibotimus notice any differences between Takara version and Hasbro version? I'd watch his videos myself but I'm not interested in his review style

    Sorry, I should've been a little more clear.

    He just reviewed the figure, which I believe was the American version, based on the outside of the box. I just meant your remark about it being the artwork on the inside of the box and not a gun was correct. You can clearly see it in the video.

    I keep seeing people say Takara doesn't do much with the movie figures (if anything at all), so I'm not holding my breath that they'd be different, let alone include a weapon.

    FYI: Hasbro is selling Nitro Zeus for $29.99 on Amazon with Prime Shipping. Just bought one and cancelled my BBTS Skorn/Zeus two pack preorder.

    Just cracked open Nitro Zeus last night. What an awesomely great figure! Looks fantastic in both modes, and the headmaster gimmick is just icing (I put Thunderwing in there from the Cybertron Strength boxed set). This fun mold needs to see another release with better paint or a different deco/Headmaster or something.

    Same here his reviews are longer then they should be, hes not very detailed, doesnt really know how to transform the figure and it looks like hes guesses half the time and most of the the review hes just ranting/complaining about the figure. I also dont like seeing his extra short nailed sausage fingers but watch all u want "u beautiful collectors and action figure fans"
    I have the hasbro version and theres no difference looking at the takara version. U would think takara would of added more paint apps or even remold the lower legs/feet but nope
