    Never seen such nitpicking for other characters in my life! I think its due to 86 guys not being as beloved as some of the other years.

    OT It always annoyed me when people referred to post movie characters as G2.

    As a 1986 fan, this is a great time to be alive!

    Since when have people called S3, headmasters, and all of them g2? G2 is all the funky repaints I have an inexplicable attraction to

    I know a lot of Euro-G1 gets mislabeled as G2, as if the bright, neon colours were exclusive to G2.

    I'm kinda wondering if it's the shade of purple that's throwing me off. Anyone wanna photoshop this in a more blueish tone? XD

    Wow I feel like there might be some 3P reps among us using gorilla marketing to nitpick this thing to death.

    Guerrilla, but I appreciate the mental image of Optimus Primal shit-posting on the boards :p

    Guerilla, all this time, I didn't know it had a different spelling. Quite unnecessary.

    Purple never photographs well. Look back a few pages and someone posted the colors by themselves. The shade of purple on the figure and the shade of the battle damage.

    My eyes are rolling, when did we start overanalyzing the color shades to this degree. Can someone point to another example?

    I'll be honest, some of those pictures make the figure look OK. Not great, but OK. He's still got proportional problems, but I could look past that, potentially, if the color was right. Mold him in a blue that leans slightly to purple instead of that godawful bright purple, without any battle damage, and I might actually pick him up. As it is, though, the color remains a dealbreaker for me.

    Don't want to draw too much attention but doesn't it look like the rear stabilizer could be grasped by one's hand...say to wield the artillery piece like a giant blaster? Hehehe of course Mr. Toy Safety Board, I'm just imagining things. :D

    I think that's quite unnecessary. This plainly isn't the decisive improvement many of us were hoping for. If a figure as wanting as Titans Return Galvatron can still wind up looking somehow the less awkward one in comparison pics, that's not a good sign.

    Of course that's not to say it doesn't get a lot of things right, but the wow factor just isn't there. It's a bit closer to what most of us wanted, but it's nowhere near the level of what they did for Hot Rod.
