    Love the way they mention Wreck-Gar's gimmick; he can ride himself. :p

    Wow--does the United Perceptor really not have chrome?

    Damn, I didn't think I was gonna be getting United Perceptor, but he has quite a bit more detail in the paint apps than his RTS counterpart.

    To help sway you the other direction, he does have that half-unpainted thing going on, like with United Soundwave, and some of the Animated figures. The sides and hood of the vehicle are metallic red, but the roof and searchlight are unpainted.

    His chest pieces do, but not the dials and gun. The chrome on the dials on the Hasbro version prevent any clippable weapons and such from clipping on to it - so that may be why TakaraTomy didn't do it.

    Stop trying to spread the hate! :lol

    Thanks for the info, I will hold off on the decision till I see full galleries, but sounds like I may be skipping him, cause I was thinking of keeping the United one in vehicle mode, and that sounds like the mode that may look the worst for the jumbled coloration.

    Out of all the United thus far I think I am getting more and more tempted to get Tracks and Jazz. They look really nice!

    To be honest, I'd rather have the chrome. And having weapons clipping on to the dials would look a little silly....Takara should've went the chrome route, imo.

    i definitely think perceptor looks the best. i think i may actually pick up the united version of him. (I'll still get the hasbro one, i'm just not strong enough to resist purchasing a new figure that i see in stores)

    the white detail on the side of his alt mode really helps a lot. i'm not bothered by the dials not being chromed, if i do get the takara version, i could always switch out the dials of the hasbro one.

    plus, one thing that hasbro did that i absolutely cannot stand is making the windows yellow, i think that really hurts the figures looks. kind of makes perceptor look like he's been chain smoking for years. whereas the united version is frosty and clear, makes it look cleaner. plus, white goes better with red than yellow.

    Yeah I hate the yellow windows on the Hasbro one. I wonder if it was done to make his eyes yellow? Hasbro doesn't often just use clear colorless translucent plastic for windows like Takara does.
