    I just found these pics(new??) on Amiami:

    Cartoon Accurate Grapple

    Looks like Grapple will have a yellow head and a chrome hook, as well as metallic silver paint apps. This bodes well for Tracks getting his G1 flames in alt mode. :rock

    Glad I'm getting the Hasbro version. I much prefer "toy accurate" than "cartoon accurate". Ditto for Red Alert. Good for those that want a yellow head.

    Yeah, normally I go ga-ga over cartoon accuracy, but for once I think Generations' toy accuracy looks better.

    Making his head yellow in the 'toon was never a good idea from the start, but it's good that there will be a version of that in toy form for those who prefer it. Me, I'll be getting..... both. Sigh.

    "Yellow"? :D 

    Also, the Hasbro head colors are also show-accurate. It just depends on whether you prefer pre- or post-"Auto Berserk" episodes.

    I love it, the yellow brings out more head detail in my opinion. Bring on the other united figs!

    I prefer the Hasbro head tbh, maybe if the toy had the "cage" around it like the G1 toy did I'd be more partial to it. Liking the overall colors better on United though.

    I think I'll roll with Hasbro on this one, though I have both preordered at the moment so I'll mull it over a bit more before cancelling one.

    Eh, I like the black head on Hasbro's version much better. Helps break up all that yellow. Though I probably won't get the Hasbro version anways. Not a big enough fan of the character, or the base mold. If I get it at all, it'll be to kitbash into Ultra Magnus.

    I prefer the black... I tend to prefer toy accuracy in general, and I really lament the lack of "collar" on this and Inferno. To me, those were aspects that really distinguished the design of the characters...

    However... in yellow, doesn't this head sculpt have a surprising "Bumblebee" vibe?

    Uh... the whole point of getting the United version is for the yellow head. If you need a second Grapple to keep in vehicle mode, why not save some cash by getting two Generation versions?

    There are different paint apps in vehicle mode as well, and looking at the early photos, the Takara version looks to be a bit richer color (hoping this is true as it could be pic lighting, etc that causes it). Some of us also like having each variation of a figure.

    As far as the product itself goes, I think I will keep my preorder for both. It is nice to have some distinctive changes between the two versions, now I just need to pick up a ladder set for one or my infernos.
