    That's not the United version. You can tell due to the lack of silver stripes and the yellow windshield. The Takara version has a clear windshield.

    What you showed a picture of, is the US release minus the chrome. That gray plastic is the color under the US chrome.

    Yup :thumbs2:  the United Perceptor should be more of a silver paint then a chrome.

    I'm suprised the Hasbro version had the chrome on it and not the other way around. I love the chrome on my Hasbro version...

    A little nail polish remover will take care of any chrome pretty quick.

    That white or silver trim on the vehicle mode, really helps make it look good. Better than the RTS version, I think when I get the RTS version I might try this.

    I think the chest area might be chrome on the United one. We'll have to see once people get it at the end of the month.

    United Perceptor looks much better than the RTS. I think I am going United all the way from now on.

    I guess to each their own. I personally think the United version is over done with the striping in vehicle mode and love the fact that Hasbro went the extra mile to include chromed parts on the RtS Perceptor. But almost all my classics are Henkei so the chromed Perceptor fits in nicely. As for the yellow window, I don't really see what the big deal is about it as IMO it doesn't detract from the figure in the least. I just feel the RtS version is a more accurate representation of the character, sans the yellow eyes.

    Yea, I was thinking that at first too, but someone pointed out that it looks like the United Version may my half molded and half metalic paint. If so, it is gonna look a little goofy in vehicle mold (kind of like the United Soundwave). I am gonna wait for some final shots of the product before I decide if I am picking up the import version since it would likely be the one left in vehicle mold with the better window paint apps and lining down the sides.

    That's why it's nice to have the ability to cancel a preorder. You can see photo galleries and video reviews of released product and still have time to cancel an order before your retailer gets their shipment.

    I guess I'm the only one who likes the chrome on the Hasbro version. Truth be told, I was surprised to see chrome on a Hasbro figure, but I figure it's a throw back to the G1 perceptor who had chrome bits here and there on that toy.
