    The left one also has a lighter, more washed out Decepticon logo too. Variant packaging?

    I much prefer the darker gray, looks more metallic. Kinda looks like a "premium" version of him, or what a hypothetical premium version would look like.

    I'm not going to believe it until we get some pics where the lighting is obviously consistent.

    I think the darker one looks better, due to the fact it looks more realistic (in my eyes) than the lighter one.

    If they get rid of that red, I'll nab a second one. I wonder if the darker grey (if it is indeed the case) is to help differentiate it from Sideswipe on the shelves. They're both about the same shade of silver currently.

    A significant problem with Sideways is the fact Hasbro didn't paint his front trunk lid and roof black to match his prop vehicle and the FAB. Hasbro drops paint apps, but not THAT many paint apps.

    It's too bad, a black front end and roof would make it distinct from Sideswipe. I hope that like Universe Legends Brawn, the final retail version will have the black paint.

    I think, maybe it's the running change.

    Hmm... Both colors look nice. I have a feeling I'll probably end up getting both variants.

    Kind of hard to tell at the moment, but if they are different, I'm sure it means Premiums. One of the recent Q&A sessions on another website (the latest one, that is) confirms that Hasbro is definitely thinking of Premiums. I'd love to buy Sideways if he looks really nice but he didn't so I thought he sucked. If this is Premium, it'll be awesome.

    I honestly can't tell the difference between these two. The one on the left looks like it might be a tinsy tiny bit darker but to me it seems so insignificant a change that it'd hardly matter. Maybe it'll be more noticeable out of package under better lighting conditions.

    Maybe the original silver was somehow wrong-less movie-accurate, or maybe they wanted some difference from Sideswipe.
