    Something I just noticed in the process of selling my AM Soundwave:

    The instructions show the wrong weapon.

    That's actually Treadshot's weapon:
    Treadshot (1990) - Decepticon Gunslinger - www.tfu.info
    Cobra Island Toys - Transformer Archive

    But because of the instructions, both TFU and Cobra Island toys depict that as the default weapon for AM Soundwave.

    Soundwave (1990) - Decepticon Communications - www.tfu.info

    My Soundwave came with this weapon:

    Was there a variant for Soundwave that did indeed come with Treadshot's gun, or did TFU and CIT really just misattribute the weapon based on the instructions?

    I had AM Soundwave as a child, and it definitely came with the winged beast creatively called "Wing Thing." I don't remember the instructions too well. I do remember as a kid thinking why not name it Laserbeak, considering... At any rate, Wing Thing is a slightly better name than freakin' Catgut.

    My carded one has the same gun as yours and shows the wrong gun on the directions on the back.
