Transformers: Adventures (Robots in Disguise) Legends Shrapnel
Read my review of the Hasbro version of Shrapnel.
I recently found out that the Takara release of Shrapnel as part of the Adventures (Robots in Disguise) toyline was remolded from the Hasbro version. A circular indent was molded on his chest for his scannable badge, which is why I tracked one down. If not for the mold variation I wouldn’t have even bothered. Bombshell and Powerglide also have this variation. The Takara version of Shrapnel has a different paint job than the USA version. His purple plastic is darker and he has yellow paint apps on his legs and the top rear of his insect mode. The yellow on his chest is darker. None of these changes are really major, but they painted his pincers silver, and that it a big difference. He looks great. I wish Hasbro had done that.
Thanks for reading!
