But Broadside being a Headmaster and having a proper cockpit (2 actually) doesn't really fit with them.

The blame layeth not with Hasbro here, but with us, the fans. Victorion was one of the fan vote figures, and two cars and two helicopters is what the fans voted for!

Did the fans ask for the use of tan in the colour scheme?

Oh gosh! I didn't know that.

Allowing people to vote for what they want, what could possibly go wrong with that.

It wasn't necessarily "what the fans voted for", well not exactly. IIRC it's because of their voting system was extremely flawed. Imagine the voting options for the 4 deluxes, each offering:
-car
-helicopter
-jeep
-plane
-tank
-SUV
But each deluxe had it's very own vote option. So I could vote
1) car 2) jeep 3) SUV 4) helicopter
and another fan could vote
1) tank 2) car 3) helicopter 4) plane

Then over the course of thousands of fan votes we'd see the leading votes for each slot as
1) car 2) car 3) helicopter 4) helicopter
When a "true" breakdown of total fan votes might look like
Car - 30%
Helicopter - 25%
Plane - 21%
Jeep - 19%
Tank - 3%
SUV - 2%
So what the fans ACTUALLY wanted are this aforementioned top 4 (and not 2 x 2 molds)

Apologies if I couldn't paint a clear enough picture, tried my best

That makes sense than I guess Hasbro took the easy way out.

My kid wanted me to get her every female Autobot, which I have and than she saw Victorion in the Machinima cartoons, asked why we don't have that toy yet. I just made the excuse that they haven't made her yet.

Assuming you meant teal, yes fans voted for the color scheme as well.

The HFGs from CW aren't great, but I prefer them over the PotP feet. I like that with PotP hands are hands and feet are feet, but the feet are so small they look like toddler shoes on an adult.
