I think Hasbro went about this the wrong way, Swindle should have gotten the truck mold, while Blastoff the new mold. Trailbreaker and Hound would have been fine as the truck mold too. Either way I'm happy we get this Blastoff. He was always my favorite as a kid, and much more fun than his friends....because he fun to swoosh and could leave the planet! Takara has hard core fans (like myslelf) over a barrel, but only because Hasbro is letting them. Not to say that Hasbro's Blastoff is garbage its very nicely painted, and I might have been okay with it....if I didn't know that Takara would do the obvious.
