Yeah, but Classics aint G1, G1 died 20-odd years ago. All the classics toys are new designs of old characters, not repaints or upgrades of original G1 molds. If the Hasbro Megatron was supposed to be a direct copy of G1 Megatron i would have been pissed, but since it wasnt, nor was any of the other toys in the line, like Prime, Hotrod, Bumblebee etc etc, i am happy with the original Hasbro version. I would take it over this one any day as i think the distinctive colors add to its charm as a Classics line figure plus this new version doesnt give us anything new other than a different paint scheme to make it worth the amount of money it will cost to import it. I was never one to complain about the original mold's color so i see no point in this "new" version.
