Iron Man // i am

(no subject)

Odd little question...

Has anyone else ever wondered why the Blue-Eyes White Dragon isn't white?

I mean, really. Everyone in Egypt calls it the white dragon. Are they color-blind, or what?

Anyone have a reason for this? I know Takahashi's said that the Blue-Eyes is his favorite monster; does anyone know if it was originally white in the early manga (I think they recolored the covers for the compiled volumes, because series-1!Kaiba's hair isn't that lovely bright lime green) and the animators decided it would look better in blue, or something like that?
