Metalrhimos Comparison

Long before the US line of Zoids, Tomy released a limited version of Black Rhimos called Metalrhimos. Metalrhimos has a very unique metallic sheen unlike any other Zoid. Hasbro then released a "Metalrhimos" as well. Wondering if they were really identical, my buddy Tom and I compared the two. As you can see, the Hasbro Metalrhimos (shown left here) looks much more dull than its shiny Japanese counterpart. The difference is actually even more striking in real life, the flash kind of enhances the sheen of the Hasbro version.
