The color isn't really supposed to be "better", it's supposed to be more realistic, which it is. I've honestly never seen this particular piece of equipment in any shade of green, let alone lime green. I'll be surprised if we don't see the CC's repainted into their more traditional colors at some point. The first releases are going to be in their real world coloring. I can't remember how many of them will be green, but I know a couple of them will, as their alt-modes are really the only one's you would ever actually see painted green. Most of them are going to be yellow.
