    I checked a couple stores this morning, and none of the newer stocked Chromedomes had the Takara head. Seems like a very limited error! Buy it if you find it!

    Most of the artwork for TR has used a lot of liberties. Blurr, Chromedome and Brainstorm all have the same upper legs, but look at the artwork for each of them.

    I don't know. I was looking at the picture, and there looks like a knife cut on the bottom on the back of the card. I'm not saying the OP is trying to pull a fast one, but I think it's somewhat suspicious. I marked the area that looked suspicious.

    It also looks like someone peeled the tape back and reapplied it. Again, not saying this is the OP doing anything, but I am starting to doubt this is legit.

    Nobody has done that.

    The arguement is that not everybody cares about total colourscheme accuracy. Especially when the two figures are hardly that different. You're coming across as totally out of touch at this point.

    As am I. As I said in an earlier post, on the first photo the OP posted, you could see a seam between the card and plastic, looking upwards from between the tip of the red gun to Chromedome's shoulder...

    Cool. That's three. Chances of this being for real is rising...

    I'd rather had Hasbro just released the Takara heads (plus other repaints) in $3 blind bags...

    Well shit. I guess it's really happening. This is one time I'm glad I'm wrong.
