So I was lucky enough to trip over some of the new Takara Legends releases in Nakano today, including Weirdwolf/Wolfwire, so I thought I'd upload a short review for people who might be waiting on him. I'll preface this by saying that Chromedome and Weirdwolf were the 2 headmasters I had as a kid, so I'm stoked to see this updated version of one of my much loved original TF's. Takara have got the colours spot-on, and though they don't seem to differ too much from the Hasbro version, there are a few noticeable differences: Head Sculpt: this is much closer to the comic/cartoon that the Hasbro one. The original Weirdwolf had grey unpainted eyes, so neither version is particularly accurate to the original head in that respect. I do prefer Takara's take since it looks like the character in most media, unlike Hasbro's that doesn't really look like anything. Robot Chest: Takara decided not to paint the ridges leading up to the detail that would have been the tech-spec flap on the old toy. I like this cleaner look, so nice work Takara. Claws: The Hasbro version had rough, chipped looking claws. Takara's are showroom condition, so depends on your preference, I like both to be honest. The wolf mode is great - I get a real Carnivac vibe from the stance, and so fingers crossed we'll get that repaint! The paws are a bit fiddly, but get him right and he looks terrific. I prefer to put Monzo in the gun seat rather than the cockpit. Speaking of Monzo, there are very few paint apps on the little fella, but I noticed his belt buckle has the same detail as the original toy, so that was nice. He also fits very snugly on the main bot's shoulders, so no Highbrow level hi-jinx here at least. The little Apeface fella is cute but not my cup of tea. It adds a little play factor though. All in I think he's great. Nostalgia aside, he's a well realised sculpt with a few clever transformation touches. Is he better than the Hasbro version? I think so, if only for the recognisable face sculpt. I've thrown a shot of the comic as well for those of you who can read it! Sorry for the late night phone shots, hopefully they have the detail you need!
