Fall of Cybertron G1 Optimus Texture General Opinion Poll

So I wanted to make a separate thread based on what I should do with the textures for Fall of Cybertron G1 Optimus made by this guy: http://facepunch.com/member.php?u=676937. My concern is that the blue textures look too dark to be accurate to be G1-ish, but seems almost fitting due to the dark and grittiness of the Cybertron games. The main question is this: Should I make the blue textures lighter, or keep them the way they are? What other work for these textures is needed besides that?

Well so much for my attempts at redoing textures. :suicide: All that’s left now is his ion “Retro” Blaster and his sword.
