    I think it was said in another board's Hasbro Q&A that all the pictures we have seen so far were test shots and that the official one would have more color to it.

    No, it will be the purple version on store shelves, the versions we'd seen were mockups and test shots. It happens all the time. (Well, not all the time, but it does happen.)

    If thats the case then why would they package an unfinished mold?

    Maybe the running change came after production was started and both versions will find their way on the shelves?

    Not sure. I'm gonna try and find out which board it was, I think it was the one that revealed a possible Voyager Sunstorm.

    That seems unlikely. Sunstorm is on the shortlist for a repaint of the classic seeker mold. Acid Storm was gonna be Sunstorm but they swapped it at the last minute. I'd expect Sunstorm before the 25th Ann. line ends. This was answered in the Hasbro Q&A.

    So they can use it as a mock-up?
    This is the reason they do testshots, so if something goes wrong they can fix it.

    While that looks much better, I still plan to wait and see if the Henkei looks closer to the test shot we seen at the beginning. I love this mold, but I'm just not happy with the color scheme Hasbro decided on.

    I thought Voyager Sunstorm was for the Animated line?

    Great, no need to wait for the over-chromed Henkei version. I'll definitely get this one.
