Roadgrabber and Gunrunner’s Unused Color Schemes

{mosimage} During G1, it was not unusual to see the in-the-works color schemes change for the final product, just look at the toy catalogs. It looks like this was the case for some of the Pretenders as well. A couple of new eBay auction have shown up for transparencies of unused color schemes for Roadgrabber and Gunrunner and there are a few notable differences. Gunrunner's head and legs are silver instead of black and Roadgrabber has a gray head and yellow where some of his maroon pieces are now. It's definitely an interesting look into Hasbro's coloring process.
