    4? I only see 2 guns with 2 barrels each = 4 barrels.

    I got my BT posed like that right now. I will take a pic when I get home from work in this morning.

    If you look closely at the artwork, there are 3 total "visible" guns. Although it is implied that there are four guns total, with one being on the opposite, outside, left arm.

    One gun is on the outside of his right arm/side of the tanker (as intended), and two on the underside of each arm. Which would be the topside of the tanker in altmode.

    Unless I'm missing something, I don't see how they can connect on those points.

    I noticed the 4 barrels the first time I saw that pic. Was hoping it'd come w/ 4, but didn't expect it to.

    I think there was an image w/ the trailer in base mode w/ the guns in the same place as well (that time only the 2 that come w/ it, though). I'll see if I can find the pic I'm talking about. When I get mine, I intend to see if I can get the missile pods to sit on top.

    *edit*
    Found it. It's one of the silhouettes.

    I think it was probably planned like that, but something may have happened during development that prevented it. Perhaps it was the addition of the 3mm clip points?

    Ok, I'm looking at BT now. Better to admit now I was wrong than go with my first thought of taping the cannons under the arms and yelling SEE!!!

    Got a question, are the double barrel weapons 5mm or 3mm pegs?

    Wow. I'm glad you posted that, because I had no idea where to put Huffer's funds in alt. mode. Looks good!

    Yeah, I wish there were an actual hole there that they could peg into. Just balancing there right now, but there is definitely room...

    Im bored today, my kids and wife are all gone right now. Stuck these 2 guys together since technically theyre not G1 Classics. I need that new Canon T2I I bought my wife last week and set them up better with a cool background. Just playing around right now.

    Not the greatest scale (or pic :D ) between these two, in alt or bot mode, but I use Voyager Megs as my G2 megs for now. I kinda like how they look squaring off with each other.

    Not my greatest of pics, but I am glad the PE figs were able to peg in.

    Was wondering, about the new crotch piece, anybody else's not flush? The two pieces don't want to meet. I might have to shave some plastic if thats the case.
