How did they manage to screw up this wonderful color for the Blu-ray?!

I agree, but the colors still seem a bit on the washed out side, with some weird green and blue hues, but this is miles ahead of the blu-ray, and don’t even get me started on the DVD. Over-saturated colors, ugly pink/purple hues everywhere on the level of the teals/greens in the Blade Runner Final Cut bad, skin tones that look like decades old taffy, crushed blacks and de-noising that removes detail, etc. Aside from the odd few hues and the slightly washed out colors I always thought the '97 version was a pretty nice restoration (with the exception of the changes of course).
