    I'm not sure if it's the lighting, but it looks like Optimus has brighter red and blue plastic.
    Soundwave looks better than the other picture. He's obviously in G1 colors.
    Starscream is kind of meh. I don't know why, but I'm actually kind of fond of the Hasbro version.
    Bulkhead isn't too bad, but his weapon looks terrible. Had it gone unchanged, it would have been fine. Now it just makes him look more boring than he actually is.

    Shockwave's colors look deeper, but that could just be typical lighting tricks.

    I like the decos on most of them, but the Optimus is a definite buy for me. I'd been contemplating the toy - and the blue does it for me.

    Ugh, that OP looks so much better with the blue instead of green. If only we had know before the Hasbro version came out! Oh well. I remember when I used to wish that Hasbro would make more colorful versions of their toys like Takara (specifically thinking of the Mini-Con era).

    Well, at least I know the only one I want is Soundwave. The others just look bland.

    The color of the removable BH parts is much approved imo. The color is very nice. I think that if I had this Shockwave I would actually leave them on him for time to time... at least the "chest face" part. As it stands, when I do obtain Shockwave it will certainly be the Hasbro release, and I've already made a spot for those horrid red BH appendeges in my "will likely never be touched again" box.

    Honestly, I've had little interest in BH Optimus so far, but again, this deco looks much more appealing to me. I'd consider grabbing him if he were a US release. TakTom must be trying to "come back" after their surprisingly inferior paint jobs on their versions of the last few waves of the Generations (pre-FOC) and RTS lines.

    Dragotron? Doesn't work somehow for me as a name.

    I must be in the minority that actually quite likes the green clear on Optimus. The rest do look a little better than the first pics we saw, but I still prefer the wackiness of the Hasbro versions if I go for any of them.
