Two reasons I think:
1. No chrome.
2. The packaging and the USA edition draw.
Anyway, Henkei/USA edition Powerglide is the best. The Universe 2.0 Walmart exclusive may have a more slavish representation of the original G1 toy, but I don't think it serves Powerglide well.
The plastic is mildly transluscent compared to the Henkei version and if you ever compare the two side by side, the Universe 2.0 version looks like the Henkei one if it had been left in the sun for a month.
