    It does look photoshopped in doesn't it?

    I know that these promo shots are photoshopped to look glossier/add colour but the gun looks like it was pasted right in the white space between his arm and chest.

    It's in other promo shots, but not there in the SDDC display.

    Maybe one of the South Australians who saw it, can take a couple more photos of the packaging (back) to see what it comes with...

    It's not pictured with either United version either.

    Good review. I don't see the point in getting both of these as they are both Soundwave anyway. I got the Soundwave only plus the disc packs.

    I want Laserbeak, but I'm not willing to buy Soundwave just to get him. Odds of anyone wanting Soundwave but not Laserbeak is unlikely... so looks like I'll just have to settle for Buzzsaw. They should release a separate Laserbeak later on - in a slightly different colour scheme and maybe package it with a repaint of FoC Eject/Rewind as Flip Sides.
