Pretty much everything that's going to be said about this toy has been said, so I'll just focus on the aspect of matching it up to the G1 color scheme as much as possible. The tank turret is indeed purple, but before anyone comments on lack of realism I'd like to point out that it has a clear orange gun barrel to begin with,so much for realism! Anyway lots of little G1 style details are present in the mold. Painted by hand using TMMA. Thanks for your time!
