    Two words: Stock. Photos.

    Lately, Hasbro seem to have been making cutbacks on the actual paint apps to shave off a few pennies. Grrr.

    The green tires on Brawn really irk me. If the final toy is like that, then he'll get introduced to some black paint :)

    The "stock" photos are photoshoped pictures of hand-painted prototypes.
    They almost always look better than the actually toy.

    That's why Hasbro puts "product and colors may vary" on their packaging.
