The biggest issue in this all is the inevitable shoddy QC that comes out of the Hasbro iterations. Things pop off, don't tab, parts warped, etc. ....consistently and always. Therein lies my biggest complaint with this brand unification thing. Most recently example would be Stinger and BB. Apparently they are a disaster . A lesser recent example would be TR Wheelie. Habsro's was nothing but an untabbable, massaging parts into place mess . ...Legends was pure awesomeness without a transformational issue to complain about. And THIS is what I'll miss most. Having said that, I could still easily spring for the couple of extra bucks for the "Takara" version, and quite honestly I probably will in the end, but I loved how it used to come with some visual differentiation too.
