    i don't about you guys but for some reason i honestly wished we got the japanese versions with the ports because then with figs like optimus who have unacturate weapons like the sword we could lug it on the side of his arms so he can have at least non weilding weapons.

    I...guess that would kind of work, but at the same time, we'd still have to deal with all the other ports and the resulting damage to the overall silhouette.

    I agree with Starscream. The MechTech weapons we get with the RiD toys are junk when they're not in weapon mode.

    They don't get all the cool stuff. The 3rd party toys are banned over there.

    Really? To the point they can't even import them?

    I don't really mind the holes. I just have wheeljack right now. And I guess they just blend in for me, They do provide some play options though. Its not for everyone fine. I just think it may be succeeding at keeping kids engaged with these toys because of experimenting with the ports and gear from other figures.

    In vehicle mode their kind of a direct way to handle weapon storage. Sort of like dark of the moon stealth force weapons.

    As collectors. You just take the weapons off in vehicle mode and set them aside.

    I like the holes because in robot mode I may need them for holstering weapons.

    are the holes deep enough so if you file them off to the surrounding surface the weapons can still be attached?

    Their deep enough, Its just that the space between the wheel well, the port, and the other corner of the arm on wheeljack is less than a millimeter.

    Not quite a ban. Takara Tomy will cut off distribution to retailers if they carry third party stuff. You can still get 'em imported in, but it's tougher since you have to get 'em from places outside Japan now.
