    From the looks of it... he doesn't have one.

    It appears to be rotated 180 around the bicep.

    Kinda looks like they gave him a right arm for his left arm.

    I think it would make FunPub master trolls if they did release "inner robot" Metalhawk on the Cyclonus body as one of the souvenir figures, or one of the club exclusives next year.

    But I don't see FP as trolls, just incompetent.

    I hope this doesn't mean the swap game of BotCon 2012 will be Metalhawk arms... >_>

    Two right arms - nice. Shitty QC already and this is probably the first one they got.

    Instead of taking pictures that try to hide it they shouldn't have taken pictures at all.

    The whole set for this year is awesome, but there is something about this pretender that I really like best of all! My only gripe is he should've had a metallic golden head.

    Two right arms and the crest on his head still isn't painted. But at least they got his fingertips painted blue. You really need to demand more from your suppliers, TFCC. Maybe I should go on Twitter and tell them.

    I like Metalhawk as is. It's different.

    I understand why people would want this, but personally I prefer the figure as-is, with a human face. It's more unique, and more how I think of Metalhawk actually looking (versus just another generic robot).

    So.... I wonder why he's standing with Scoop? A hint of some sort?

    He has two right arms... I guess having two correct arms will be the variant?
