Color temperature adjustment, quaiaff?

Nice review, in comparing the two versions side-by-side so much.

I can easily settle for the Hasbro version. What an awesome toy!

My weakness is reds :( Yeah,

Yeah, there really is no reason to pay more unless you absolutely have to have the Takara paintjob. The Hasbro is great. Probably one of my most transformed animateds.

I frequently- though not

I frequently- though not always- adjust my pictures now not just with the camera settings but also the simple editing software in Microsoft Pictures Gallery.

Regardless the version, its still the best

While the takara version wins hands down for color, the hasbro version wins for price. The only thing that will affect your decision in which version to get is what your collection demands.

The only complaint that I have that robs this toy from getting a complete 5 out of 5 would be the right arm constantly popping out of the socket whenver you transform it and no matter how careful you may be. Since the hasbro and the takara share the exact same mold, both toys would be suffering from the same problem.

Overall, Rodimus Prime is one great toy and is one of the best Animated toys made.

Lots of options available

If you're not a fan of the Animated designs there's also the Classics version, FansProjects' "Protector" armor and the upcoming Masterpiece edition.

Good time for Rodimuses.

I hate "animated" looking

I hate "animated" looking figures from long running lines. I've been buying
transformers for years,and the majority match up with each other,and now bam,at one end of the shelf there's some weird guys who look like they're from Sponge Bob. Same thing with Star Wars.

I think they should have made them the characters/vehicles from the show,just realistically proportioned.

Recommendation: PRIME

"I think they should have made them the characters/vehicles from the show,just realistically proportioned."

I recommend you checking out the new Transformers: Prime CGI cartoon coming out. The latest designs should remedy all your "Animated" problems away as much as they remedied all my "Movie" problems away.

Wow the expression on its face reminds me a lot of Obama.
It looks like he just finished saying, "I hate Hillary" and caused Optimus's death.
