So I had this idea. Some toys seem to have similar color schemes... but how close are they really? Standalone photos don't really help, since they're often taken by different people using different cameras in different surroundings using different lighting and possibly with different subsequent digital color, hue, brightess, saturation and contrast enhancements. So what we need are direct side-by-side comparison photos. Put those toys next to each other under the same lighting and take photos. Hopefully, that should show how close the colors actually are (or aren't). I'm not exactly sure yet what direction I want this thread to take, so my initial suggestion would be a multifold route: Anyone who has a request for a side-by-side comparison can post their requests here, and hopefully someone will fulfill that request. Anyone who wants to, simply speaking, premptively fulfill a potential future request (or just wants to show off) can also do that here. I may try to maintain an index of sorts in the first post, though depending on how quickly this thread gets filled with comparisons, I may soon end up lagging behind, so no promises there. What shall be the subject of this thread? A) Different toys of different characters that just happen to share a similar color scheme. B) Different toys of the same character that may or may not necessarily be all that similar in color. C) Different versions of the same toy, be it Hasbro versus TakaraTomy, or just running change variants, same-character redecos, literal repaints or different production runs. What shall not be the subject of this thread? Comparisons and comparison requests that are not related to the color or the decos of the toys in question (e.g., size or sculpting comparisons). I'd like to start off with a request of my own: Cybertron Voyager Class Quickmix and Thrilling 30 Deluxe Class Scoop, and also Quickmix's Mini-Con partner Stripmine and Scoop's Targetmaster partners Holepunch and Caliburst, either as two separate photos or all together in one photo (though in the latter case with the toys with similar colors grouped together).
