    i opened my henkei optimus to see that the smokestack gun has a little fold out section from teh inside of teh gun that becomes the lower part of the gun, i never noticed this on my classics ultramagnus (when i had him!!).

    ive yet to see a picture online of him with this bit showing, surely its not new to the henkei version???

    It's not new at all, never has been, but people seem to "discover" this all the time and seem shocked as if no one knew besides them. This happened multiple times after Classics Prime was released.

    Only a genius, someone who's read the instructions, or someone who looked at the picture on the box could possibly have known about this. :tongue: 

    As a side note, I leave that bit folded up on Magnus to differentiate him from Prime a little.

    Prime being red and Magnus being white isn't enough differentiation for you? :p 

    Usually I differentiate between them by giving Prime the smokestack gun with the vane left on his back; Magnus gets the vane gun with the smokestacks held under his vane mount.
    Although at the moment they're also distinguished by the fact that Prime has both legs.

    I like to give visual clues, in case a dog is looking at my collection and wondering why I have two Primes.

    Well, three if we count my duplicate Magnus.

    One of them has Prime's gun with the silver bit on it, the other has the all black gun Magnus comes with.

    Things of this sort seem to crop up regularly. A current fave seems to be people telling the world about the proper transformation for Animated Snarl's chest area.

    I don't own Snarl (yet?), so I'll be sure to make a thread about it whenever I get one. :lol

    Well, considering i'm a new forum member, and the fact that i JUST purchased henkei optimus, for the sake of avoiding opening a new thread, professed my love instead via an old thread. Isn't that what we're supposed to do???? Search for threads that are related to what i want to talk about and then post?

    I didn't realize it was a sin to be considerate of forum rules.

    If you want me to start creating threads all over again, sure. I don't mind. I just simply thought i was being considerate by not flooding this huge site with one more random thread. Lemme know mr. admin.

    No need to be defensive. It's generally frown upon to resurrect old threads as well as to start trivial new ones. If you have something new and insightful to post, by all means, start a new thread. But, if you want to post a comment or something less-than-fresh, try the "Lets See Some Cool Stuff - Transformers Only Edition" thread. Pictures are encouraged!

    edit

    This is probably more appropriate for your situation: Post your most recent TF purchase....
    Pictures are also encouraged!
