    Hi there,

    Just wandering something. I saw the last TF movie which was good and they had Laserbeak in there which looks like a Volture more than an eagle but he still looked ok to me but what i'm wandering is if you look at the instruction manual of the deluxe figure and look at the actual head on the bot, it's not the same head. Since i'm more of a G1 fan, I like a lot better the head in the instruction manual than the movie version....is there a way to get that head to replace the actual one???

    thanks

    Yes, wait for the inevitable (Buzzsaw?) repaint.

    No, I'm saying that there will inevitably be one. Hasbro has sort of had a trend where the instructions show a different head or somerthing, hinting at a future remold or repaint (i.e. WFC Cliffjumper, Straxus, and shitloads more that I can't remember).

    Yep. He was never an eagle in the first place.

    This was front-paged about a month ago, they had photos of the manual indicating a repaint. New Head looked a lot better.

    funny, how people say the toy's head looks like the claw, while the instruction's show a dinobird head, here is the claw on the left and lasebeak scan on the right
    sorry for the bump [​IMG]

    It wouldn't suprise me if that repaint of Laserbeak becomes a Takara version. They did it with HFTD Tomahawk. Threw in a different head in the Hasbro instructions and what do you know, a DOTM Takara exclusive Vortex. I'm not saying it will happen but, I tend to notice a somewhat of a trend..
