Made a neat discovery yesterday and failed to mention it sooner. Thanks to Red leader, I was able to make a great trade with him to receive one of the KO Mirage figures, specifically the Diaclone red version with blue eyes. Never having owned a Mirage and only handling a couple G1 toys before, I was impressed with the quality and might even review him later on. But there was one glaring flaw that I noticed. For some odd reason, Mirage was unable to hold his hunting rifle at all. It was as if the KO makers completely screwed up, making his fist holes too wide or the handle too small... as if the gun didn't even belong to Mirage. Lo and behold, it wasn't his hunting rifle at all, but a somewhat deformed hologram rifle for Hound! Of note is that the rear of the rifle is cut short and is easily identified next to the genuine article. Now, I don't yet have a camera at my disposal for a picture, but I don't go off and buy random G1 toys, and certainly not G1 parts for which I have no use, AND have no stock in lying about this sort of thing. If someone around here wants the thing so they can verify the claim, PM me. I can't think of any reason myself why a Hound gun got into Mirage's packaging and in place of his real weapon, aside from perhaps a shared mold... or indeed, a Hound KO following the release of some of the others announced. EDIT: I borrowed an image from Transformerland to show what I was talking about. There's also an indentation of a straight line along the length of the barrel of the weapon, and it may also be shortened compared to the original.
