    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.

    Weirdly, Prime's gun is even shown on the back of the boxes. It doesn't come with the toys, obviously.

    Because it's $50 for a redo of a figure that was in scale and already pretty nice IMHO. If I see him cheaper I might just bite. Still waiting for a perfect Classics Soundwave, although the Blaster repaint might work.

    I think the auto-transform disc ejection system is a sweet little gimmick though. It's the sort of simple non-battery powered ideas that Hasbro should be focusing on. Don't know about you guys, but the sound effects I could make as a kid were always 500% better than the fuzzy crap that comes out of modern Leader class figures.

    Classic G1 transformation sounds on conversion are an exception however
