Sideways features a more show accurate deco, and Rampage (Wheeljack) is just beautiful. Jetfire has superior whites and Overload looks more aesthetically pleasing with his paint applications of silver and blue. Silverbolt (Blurr) has show accurate red windows while Hoist is a completely different color scheme that brings out the toy. List goes on and on. Ultimately every Micron Legend bulk figure is different other than green Thrust.
I though the seeker issue was just a slight tooling for how the cockpit pegs into the body of the plane.
Megatron is one of the closer ones in terms of color scheme between the Armada version and the Micro Legend Takara version.
Tidalwave, by the way he is awesome, again is mostly just color, but yeah the color scheme on the Micron Legend version is leagues better than the Armada scheme.. Not sure if the missiles were different for the American version though.
