Honestly, I don't really notice it all that much. Shockwave looks like Shockwave. Maybe it's cause I'm so used to the overly busy designs of the live-action movie Transformers, it doesn't really bother me. I like that Hasbro at least gives us mostly a way to remove that battle damage paint if we want by putting it usually on unpainted plastic parts. I even made sure with Magnus should I ever get around to doing it.
