    I believe they said these were test colors and not the final colors.

    ... then they kept showing them at shows. And in stock photos. And not really addressing the question of why...

    It's really, really confusing.

    Fuming to be honest. I was really looking forward to getting them in the G1 colours. Takara will redo them in the G1 but its just a kick in the balls again

    Painted protos and bad Photoshop are typical. We'll just have to wait and see what shows up at retail.

    I really think this is going to be the case here. Who knows if these really are the final colors? With a release all the way out in October, anything can still happen regarding the colors. It could very well be that Hasbro literally only has one set on hand to pimp out at shows, and it's in the G2 colors.

    The G2 fanboy in me relishes the idea, and fan tears, of a G2 color Bruticus, but I won't really be bothered if he comes in G1 colors as final production colors.

    After seeing and shooting these in person, they look pretty final to me. Can't lie. I don't mind them, though. I have more problems with the bot itself than the colors.

    It's weird because there's a shopped advertising picture for both of them:

    Game-accurate colors
    Energon colors

    My guess is that both are going to come out, and one is going to be a boxset and/or store exclusive

    Actually, didn't screenshots show up of him in the game with the brighter colors?
