I just can't figure out what Hasbro were going for with the colours. The Takara one is aiming for show accuracy, so it's not that, and it's not toy-accurate in the slightest either since the original toy had four very distinct shades of blue on it. Not all that close to the Marvel look, either. But whatever it's meant to be, the mold is available in six other, more exciting colour schemes.

I don't mind it for Blurr, actually. It's a neat take on the shield that the original toy came with, and if you don't want to use it as an accessory it folds away neatly into a backpack. I think that combining two guns into the TM sled works a lot better for most characters, though. If only because it means that Hasbro needs to give everyone two guns!
