    In general, official boxart photos have more paint apps and "photoshopped" effects than the final versions. I would say the final release will be more like the one seen at toyfare.

    Outside of the claw I don't see any differences. The arm parts aren't swung around right in the Toy Fair pics, ad I don't see the black paint on the upper legs in either photo.

    You can tell the Toy Fair photo was hurt by both flash glare and mistransformation.

    Sharper eyes than mine. I would guess we'll get the one with fewer paint apps.

    hard to tell but the toyfare version has more the paint/plastic feel that say animated prowl (from those being sold/reviewed) does.

    The stuff that appears at Toy Fair is often hand-painted prototypes and/or test shots (depending on how close to actual release the toys are probably). Over a lot of Toy Fairs I've seen a lot of TF toys have colors/apps that are different from both the official package photo images and the final release toys. I suspect a lot of prototypes/test shots get painted quickly for the Toy Fair, and errors/inaccuracies creep in.
