    The figure is the same. Cheaper is Hasbro, while the latter is Takara. Box difference with only the Japanese sticker.

    I think you are correct. Titans Return was the last line where takara was offering a different take on the products. POTP bought them into unison.

    Has anyone tried removing the jet parts backpack on Elita-1? Any tips for doing so without breaking something? I'm thinking she might look better in my displays without it even though it would do away with the transformation.

    Completed my Inferno combiner "Firestormer" with a chestplate.

    I figure that since Wreckgar is the left arm, the guy on Firestormer's chest is "Dross", a fellow Junkion.

    Colors can change a lot before the final product is released. Who knows what the real color will be at the end.

    Hello all,

    I'm trying to figure out if the swords and guns from the original G1 Predacons/Predaking are compatible with the POTP Versions. I.E., can the POTP Predacons hold the swords and guns of the originals. Does anybody know?

    Another little bit more Prime Wars wonder; the Clones and Punch/Counterpunch.

    Despite being a G1 comics junkie, I totally fell in love with all these guys due to their brief, but rather memorable, appearance in 'The Rebirth'.
    There's a part of me that is still really amazed that we got such faithful renditions of these dudes. Pricey to complete, but worth the entry fee, I think.
