    I've seen lots of pictures of it but I haven't seen any pictures of him with those magnets around his hands that he uses in pretty much every single episode. Does the toy have them?

    Does he even have a toy yet? I've only seen Prowl, Bulkhead, Bumblebee, Prime, Starscream, Megatron, Lugnut and Oilslick.

    That's a nice idea for its gimmick though.

    Yes he does. Kinda. Only on top of his hand, not underneath.

    I can live with it. Conidering how hard it would have been to make them look like the cartoon AND stay integrated with the figure, it's a decent compromise.

    Imagination is the best part.
    The shovel thing is just a really big screwdriver. The can/bottle-opener is... a can/bottle-opener. (I seriously think it's just a joke on the designers part, because it's damn funny!)

    those things look nothing like they do in the show. Every other toy I've seen looks 99% show accurate, so this makes me kinda mad. I can even imagine a way that they could have made the show ones work. They'd need a hinge in the bottom of that piece and a slot to push the whole thing back. Then they'd just paint it red and white and it'd be great. If you don't understand what I'm trying to say then I can try and sketch it. I don't think it would be that hard. I don't understand why they gave him a huge rack of tools that we never see him use and left out the one thing we ALWAYS see him use. I guess I'm just disappointed because all of the other toys look so great.

    maybe I'm just unimaginative, but I don't see any way of possibly hiding show-accurate magnets in his arms.

    if the top of his arm flipped up into half of the magnet on one side and autoporph gears did the same to the other side, it would have been more show accurate. im perfectly happy though, as what i said (or any other show accurate magnets) would make his arms less show accurate unless you had the magnets out ALL the time, which some people may not want. i just wish that when that bit flipped into his hand it had the other side of the magnet-that would make so much more sense. but for what it is, its decent

    is that REALLY supposed to be a canopener?! haha!
