    Is it just me, or is there a lot more packaging errors these days? I have a Classics Prowl with Sunstreaker, or Movie Bumblebee with 'Con logos, and I saw an Animated Megatron with Starscream's packaging! (Including the back, the front logo, everything!) So are packaging errors becoming normal?
    Also, randomly, I wonder how Starscream would react if he knew Megatron was hogging his image.

    Movie, 77 Camaro, not the figure, the Packaging. Not that impressive. I actually kept it though cause of the error.

    The Sunstreaker packaging isn't an error - it's generic multilingual packaging. It has Prowl's bio on the back yeah?

    And I think the same with the movie BB. they all had 'con logos on them. Although I could be wrong on this one.

    Most of my TF's don't have bio backs. They just show the rest of the wave. And yes, Prowl did have all his Prowly bits in his package, and his Bio sheet.

    Gotcha, yeah they're just generic card backs. I guess Hasbro is starting to do them more to cut down on costs. Cheapos!

    I haven't seen anything like that here in Australia. Just out of curiosity, where did you get those figures?

    the decepticon BB package is a canadian card. thats all we got up here was decepticon carded movie toys

    same now with the universe figs. they all have sunstreaker on them, but have their own package inserts on the side.
