    Someone's video comparing the TR to the LG version.



    They're identical save for the LG one not having an issue with the leg (at least on his).

I have a Godzilla toy from my 80s childhood and have been wanting an update along with a Mechagodzilla as a rival. you sir got my hooked on this line! I'm also highly envious that you live in Japan as its been a lifetime dream for me...

    Well just for interest, I picked up the Hasbro Titans Return Trypticon at a discount, and he doesn't have any hip issues. Its just a shame that the clear ramp that holds Full Tilt is warped, and isn't even wide enough to tab in correctly. Also the sides with the arms on that tab in are ok on one side, but not the other. This really is cheap ass piece of crap compared to the other releases, and I'm so glad I didn't go for the Legends version.

    My door was warped as well, but it's easily fixable. Warm it up with a blow dryer, then either gently & carefully bend it back straight, and/or put it under something flat & heavy for a while (I used a stack of heavy books). My door wasn't wide enough either, but it was because the screws on either side under the armpits weren't screwed all the way. Just tighten them up to make it fit more snug. A dab of superglue on the door tabs or floor polish to thicken them up was also needed, but after all those quick minor fixes he's perfect now. Hope this helps!

    Still looking to see if I can pick hasbro version up at a discount after some time. Those Black Friday deals were pretty good for fort max. Not like the Ross deal, but still not retail, either.

    And that's why it's better, if you get a good one that is.

    Got my Hasbro version from Amazon, $130 something. It is perfect, no issues at all, transformed 3 times already, now onto applying all the decals.

    It is such a fun toy TBH, can't wait for my Reissue Metroplex !!!

    Too late already paid upfront at AE a long time ago for the takara version. Do you know if the takara version has any japanese sound effects?

    Guys, if they're identical then there is no "better". Because by definition they're the same.
