    Hasbro's version should have been like this too.

    It's nice that they switched the blue parts to grey parts, but now the chest and right hand gun look way out of place, since they are still blue.

    I actually think the Hasbro version looks better because the colors blend better, but if the Takara version would have been fully grey I'd be all over that one.

    Agreed. All of the gray bits look way better.

    Grey improves the sculpt a lot, but not enough for me to buy him again.

    I still haven't picked up this mold yet. Those of you who have it, is it worth picking up at American retail?

    I like the one with the brighter grey bits better. More contrast, something a lot of movie toys have too little of.

    It looks like the days were the North American (Hasbro) and Japanese (Takara) releases of the movie toys are the same are over. The movie line has now gone Henkei and makes you think, which one to get or get both.

    I'm fine with my Hasbro version.

    i actually am a bigger fan of the baby blue over the gray. i dont know, the blue just seems to fit ironhide better i suppose.

    I like the blue better, too. He probably needs a few more spots of grey/black on his legs just to break it up a bit, but accuracy be damned, it's a much more attractive colour scheme. As mentioned before, it brings some much needed contrast to the deco, rather than devolving into a generic dark mess.

    This is the version we should have received over here. I will never understand the decision to make Ironhide half blue.
