    what an odd choice. I always figured Takara's people were more picky about G1 details

    not sure that would be a smart move on their part if they're just the same toys...remolds into new character? Would depend on which characters as they've done pretty much all the G1 originals in that format...Powermaster combiner characters?

    Yes. At one point. All he has to do is wait until she's 19" and boom! He can order a Devastator!

    I want to think the painted blue hands version was a mock-up Hasbro sent to the factory.

    “After focus group testing, we have determined that we’d be willing to pay up to 30 cents more per unit if you can adjust the mold sprues to provide blue hands.”

    Chinese Hasbro Asia employee takes his version translated from English to Japanese into Mandarin and runs it through Google translate into Vietnamese for the factory supervisor. “Hands” inexplicably becomes “arms”.

    The Vietnamese factory supervisor shoots back, “They want the whole arms blue?”

    The Hasbro Asia exec responds, “No. Just the ends of the arms!”

    The Vietnamese supervisor, not wanting to ask further questions, thinks, “Ends of the arms? Oh.” He glances down at his elbows on his desk. “Blue elbows!”

    Think the wife would notice in devastator form due to sure size either way. I liked what one guy did in another thread though with omega in base form on table with a vase of flowers in the middle to through his wife off.....got to think of something, maybe dev in a new pair of heels for her, she might focus on the new shoes so much the big green machine might become an after thought....hmmm

    So we have the first ComicCon appearance with:
    - yellow eyes
    - gunmetal biceps
    - grey hands
    - painted gunmetal crotch detail
    - trailer hitch port parts on both legs

    Twitter/phamduc pics with:
    - blue eyes
    - gunmetal biceps
    - blue hands
    - painted blue crotch detail
    - trailer hitch port parts on both legs

    Takara version with:
    - yellow eyes
    - blue biceps
    - grey hands
    - unpainted grey crotch detail
    - trailer hitch port on right leg only


    Did I miss anything? And WTF is even happening? Clearly #2 is the best version, but oy vey...

    I'm starting to think whoever laid out which parts went on which sprues really wasn't thinking very hard.

    I wouldn't be focusing so much on the fact that Grandpa has changed but that someone put him in a box.

    In box images are usually more indicative of a final product than promo images
