    Still luvin' the artwork (it's a pity this was never done for Classics). I can't wait to see scans of the comic. But... uh... where are Sideswipe's turbochargers? I always thought they were omitted from the stock photos by accident. Please tell me they're not left out entirely. o_O

    Man, Japanese boxes just look so busy. The artwork is hideous, but still better than dull-surprise Universe packaging art.

    I really hope someone does some Henkei box art scans. I'm loving that aspect alone.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess they are included. Probably attached to him and just hidden behind the art.
    I doubt they'd leave a bit off.

    that's his name, right? pretty sure that's how he's been solicited.
    (even Hasbro said Tankor was supposed to be called Octane)

    No, he's actually named "Destron Octone" on the packaging.

    "Octone" was Octane's Japanese name in G1, whereas the "Destron" prefix is the Japanese counterpart to Hasbro's "Autobot Jazz", "Decepticon Brawl" etc.

    They did it twice before, with Transformers Collection "Cybertron Perceptor" and Henkei (or "Gentei") "Stuntron Wildrider".
