Well, I for one don't "hate" it, but I do want the one that tries for accuracy in both modes instead of this one.
Hasbro's Platinum Edition attempts to make both the robot and vehicle modes movie-accurate:
In this figure's robot mode, all the part that are gunmetal were closer to blue in the movie, while all the tan parts were closer to red, in the movie. So while the colors aren't an exact match, the Platinum Edition at least tries to match its deco's layout with that of the movie model's deco layout.
Whereas the Takara Rusty Ver. just makes Optimus look like a bloodstained albino from head to toe, with its mostly non-contrasting single-color deco.
