I like the gold harness on the Hasbro one better. I'm partial to both versions of glasses - green is nice, but so is the amber color. The drink dispensers are also different and good for different reasons. Both have different ways of dealing with the third leg issues, this one is removable and that just plain works. But Hasbro's has wires on his outer legs - so in that sense, that one is better. Articulation is good, and they made good use of the existing "hat hole" on the figure's head. You can't ask for more than that - well, R5-P8, but yeah. Same deal. It works well.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Disney Hollywood Studios.
