    The G1 Megatron toy was able to grasp the sides of his gun via the same little handles. The scope combined with his stock and silencer.

    MP-05 doesn't have a scope or silencer. The presence of the handles suggests a double-dip sometime in the future. Although Just It Toys seems to have made a reasonably high-quality bootleg.

    I wouldn't really call it a bootleg, since it's not exactly reproducing anything else in existence.

    The g1 Megatron has the same pegs, but they are not the ones that he holds when his scope is combined with his stock. Those are completely separate pegs alltogether. As for what the pegs on his scope are for I still can't figure it out.

    Yeah, they were for Micromen. What the heck they're doing on MP Megs, well, my guess is as good as yours.

    Because if they weren't there, someone would complain? They probably planned at some point to include the rest of the parts with mp-05, but then didn't.
