    I agree...I was actually pleasantly surprised as I was waiting for the 'toy' version because I thought it was closer to the toon look...and this one is even more toon accurate, so yay. But if I legitimately wanted the toy deco, I supposed I'd be a bit bummed.

    Yeah for sure. I'm a toy guy in general so I really did want toy colors, but anyone that wants toon colors, these are pretty spot on IMO. Boost could stand to be a bit darker even for toon, but the light grey is justifiable and a hell-of-a-lot better than the dark blue of V1. Tailgate was pretty much dark blue in the cartoon, so with the silver legs this version of Hatch is perfect for him.

    Here ya go. I think this could be considered official. It's what I meant to originally post.

    Truthfully, the more I think about the chest color, it probably was shown every shade of grey (50?) in the show, so the V2 could more or less be considered "accurate", but it's disappointing to me that what XTB showed us in the renders is not what they're delivering.

    Are there in-hand pics/video of these, or is there this much butt-hurt over the sample pics?

    It's getting scary in here lately...

    Since XTB is offering half price on v1 purchasers of Ollie, Im pretty sure the final will look like the renders unless they want more backlash. I guess I will wait and see as well before I cancel. That grey is so light it looks unfinished so maybe it will get painted.

    Not in denial, just hoping something just like this will get posted eventually :(  . If not, its like a bait and switch, the colors on the renders are not even close.

    Just check the thread for Ollie. a few retailers are participating, hopefully more will, my understanding is XTB is offering it but the retailer has to show proof of original purchase and v2 purchase.

    I am going to ask if this is final, hopefully they respond.

    Thanks. I was asking for a link as I'm on my phone and we all know this site sucks for searching on mobile. Guess I'll have a look when I'm back home. Ollie v2 isn't out yet so I'm guessing no rush.

    Anyway, back on topic, Im waiting on the in hand pics then I'll decide which colors I prefer.

    Thanks again, yeah, this version looks way better!

    Shame my Ollie came from a now kaput site but maybe they'll let me prove it some other way. I do own the darn thing!

    I've went back several pages and I have no idea what's going on Haha. I didn't buy the first set when I heard a more toon version was in the works. So now people are saying it's not toonlike? Or it's not what the renders originally showed? I'm not terribly picky. I just prefer for a general Sunbow style. Most of you aren't happy with what's being shown here for the V2?

    Got mine today and I think he looks awesome. Obviously not as dark as the render but very toonish to me.

    Here he is with Grimlock and Prime so you can compare greys. :)
