    Just saw him in the News section, and was wondering if he's technically more Show-Accurate. I might end up getting him if he is.

    Yeah, asking if he's a more accurate deco or just a pointless repaint.

    He's sorta more accurate, since the primary color is black instead of green, but the details don't really follow the animation model.

    He's not accurate. He does have some more black on him, but not nearly enough to be accurate to the show model. Colorwise, he isn't all that different from the original version, which has me scratching my head.

    They could have made him more accurate and he would have been different enough from his first toy..now he isn't.

    Show accurate would be a Cybertronian alt mode. Also, with the annoying photo-enhancements, it's hard to pinpoint differences anyway.
    Besides, repainting one of the main shelf-warmers isn't all that logical.
