    I just received my Black Convoy today. The questions that are on my mind now are connected with his middle missile launcher that is supposed to be fired with that bellows thingy. Is that supposed to work? I tried squeezing it, but the missile still stay on. What am I doing wrong?

    Congrats on your haul :)  You mean the bigger missiles you shoot out with the air pump? I hardly succeed flying those myself. Probably depends on the way you put it on the launcher. I think the pump's too small anyway.

    Yes, I was talking about that big missile that you fire with the air pump. Anyway, I watched a review on youtube, and it seems that you don't squeeze it, you have to punch the damn thing.

    I simply love this mold. I think I need to get me some miniature brooms. Some pictures are in order I think:

    I believe there is a flat side to the launcher and a flat side inside of the missile. Make sure these are lined up and yes, you probably have whack the air pump thing like "whack-a-mole!" I never got it to go very far but it can be done.

    I aligned the missile with the launcher correctly. I guess I'll be using a meat tenderizer then. ;)

    The G2 Laser Prime mold is ahead of it's time.

    Way ahead of it's time.

    This is the best black Prime repaint ever. I didn't even think missile was suppose to shoot, suppose I'll have to try harder now

    You need to slide the missile into the launcher in a correct position (you can feel it correct as otherwise you really need to push it hard to get it down). Smack the air pump and it will fly. Mine can fly across the entire living room :)

    Those bellows launchers always sucked. I cut the one off Destructicon Scourge 'cos it got in the way of his arm articulation a little.

    I test fired the air launcher again. IT WORKS!! I wacked the bellows somewhat hard and the missile flew about 6 feet. YAY!!

    Now I adore Black Convoy. I used to just love him, you know, now I adore him.

    Brings back the memories of my brother and I, playing with G1 Prime, and shooting with Prime's trailer launcher at Devastator, trying to topple him over. I regret not having this toy back then. We would have played with him for hours on end.
