Yeah, I'm in a similiar boat. Got mine the week after Botcon at TRU, from the first batch in my area. And I too thought it was something deliberate. I certainly don't dislike how it turned out.

I threw my packaging away but found a card scan (below). It appears as though the "homogeneous orange" (great term for this, Silent_Magnus) is the "official" version. The card displays a Huffer toy with a hood that's the same shade as the rest of the vehicle.

I hope I get one with a matching hood. I never liked the orange hood on him.

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.

The matching hood makes this look even more Machine Wars.

When I got mine I was seriously looking all over for an auto-transform trigger...


Yes. Now I want to dig Hubcap out.

Can anyone provide some more detailed photos, from multiple angles, of the homogenous color scheme? I have the non-matching one. I think I would like the matching more. (Not that I am going to buy another to get it, but I wonder.)

I was at two Targets and one TRU tonight and didn't see the matching version at any of the three. Granted I had stopped looking at the first wave PCCs once I had the ones I wanted, so I don't know if it's out in my area elsewhere.

doesn't bother me that his hood doesn't match, I just took it as some sort of fleet marking the truck he scanned came with...

makes him less of a "just off the showroom floor" bot like most TFs these days

Seems I'm in the Minority of liking the Homogeneous orange, as I find the dark orange hood looks really bad.

I personally don't really have a preference. I just thought it was amusing how many people prefer the mismatched hood.
It makes me wonder if things would have different if it was the running change.

I'm perfectly content with the darker orange hood on mine. Adds character.

I actually want the entire toy to be the mismatched hood color.

That looks nice, if this were the change that Hasbro made I'd be looking for that one and not the yellow one.

I agree that that looks better, and would be the one I'd get if it was real.

Mine has matching hoods too. I think all international releases have that.
