    Wondering who chose what. I like the g1 sunbow accurate look of the UN version, but I also like the g1 toy accurate version of the black headed RTS one. Haven't been able to find RTS version for sale or preorder, so I don't have it yet, but I'll probably end up getting one of each if i can.

    I've got the Hasbro RTS version. The yellow head on the United version just looks weird to me.

    I'm so undecided about this as well. I actually like the yellow head, but from the QC issues I've heard I might settle for the RTS version.

    I figure the RTS version will actually be harder to get if retailers have to continue to buy 2 Deep Dive figures for every Grapple.....still don't understand that one.

    RTS for me, I bought Henki Inferno and the Hasbro release, but I'm not that strong a fan of Grapple to buy a more anime-ish version.

    RTS for me. Like most of you have mentioned, it's the head that does not do it for me - the black breaks him up nicely visually.

    RTS - I like the black head on Grapple better than the yellow.

    Hasbro's RTS for me, if I can find the damn thing! By the time I get to the stores I see the occasional Strafe and/or Lugnut *shakes fist*

    I prefer the toy-accurate contrast of the black head, and of course the cheaper price tag.

    Totally United for me. I love mine and have had no quality control concerns with mine.

    I was forced to get United Grapple. I couldn't find the RTS version. I like the yellow head, it's novel.

    I picked up the RTS from HTS.
    I don't like the yellow head on united.

    I will get RTS as I just can't justify the extra price based on the changes between the two.
