Well that's the nail in the coffin for the hasbro version for me. There's elements that both versions have that I prefer but takaras one is the overall winner

I was all in for the Hasbro version, but it only looks good in combined mode.

The individual bots just aren't doing it for me.

I'm out.

The Hasbro ones look washed out and prototypy.

I wonder how much of that is the photos though. The Hasbro ones all have rubbish lighting compared to the Takara ones.

I wish you could mix and match them to make a set of bots you like.

Just a note for people comparing technobots: Hasbro's Afterburner actually has the newer UW head, and he is actually mostly orange, the stock photography is really off on the colour.

I'm getting the Takara version though, it just seems better in almost every way. I even really like that Strafe mold, which is odd because I hated it as Blast off for some reason.

Is Hasbro-Computron going to be being released as a box set or as individual sets as per Hasbro's practice so far? If it's by the individual members, then I think I might go for the Takara box set and then mix and match some of the more interesting Hasbro members in.

I'm really glad I don't want Computron because I know I'd be sweating if I did. Takara looks awesome but Hasbro has the better feet/hands and the Cosmos repaint. Tough!

One things for sure though. Someone needs to release more of those new feet/hands in colours to match the previous sets...

Interesting they went with Ratchet over Smokescreen
As expected, slightly improved decorations.

However being a giftset and a "EX" version, means it is going to be expensive to acquire and I really do not want to get the CW Autobots that I already have in other CHUG form
So, Hasbro Skylynx for me
