    So, every Prime Megatron I've seen has had his mechtech Fusion Cannon torn off in the box.

    All that's left is the blades on his arm. I've seen at least three of these in my area.

    Anyone else seen this happening? I figured if not, then I should post something about it and let everyone know, so watch out for it when you go to buy your Megatrons.

    Somebody violated the last Bulkhead my TRU ever saw, except that instead of being smart & just cutting the plastic tape or something, they jammed their fat fingers down the the box, stretched/bent the fuck outa everything, took what they needed, and the ended up breaking one of Bulk's chest/door panels in the process, or at least I think it was broken because it definitely wasn't as secure as the one I picked up for a friend. I hope karma ends up biting whoever did that for a 2nd mace hard in the rear.

    I've only seen one Megatron in store and he had his gun, but the gears were misaligned so it didn't look right anyway. Yay gimmicks!

    They probably swipped it like all of those Voyager DOTM Prime guns. It sucks to see such assholes these days. Not only is it wrong, but think about the kids who want the toy and don't have a gun for him.

    I just opened my Powerizer Megatron the other day, and that gun was hard to remove! With all the camera's/security stores have these days...how can these assholes get away with this crap?

    Plus, who the FUCK would steal this gun?! It's gimmicky and way to big for Megatron anyway. I would figure that people would throw the package out AND the gun once they purchased one. lol

    It's gotta be some asshole who knows that they are packed 1 a case, and wants to make it a pain in the ass for others.

    If there was something that SHOULD be done about it, Hasbro would be the ones to do it...

    in other news, Takaratomy is confirming that they are selling Arms Microns in capsule toy form separately from the main line. So yeah, you could have his gorilla/cannon/blade mini weapon as you choose! :D

    Again, what is wrong with his gun? Too big? Since when is Megatron's fusion cannon too big?

    Animated Voyager Megs' cannon is too big. This one is just fine.

    I think it is OK...it could due to be shrunk down just a hair. But, I am not gonna complain, we have enough complainers about the figure in general.

    But back on topic here... It is really getting to the point that their gimmick is biting them in the ass, and that is IN the package.

    Wait, you mean RiD Prime? SOmeone actually wanted to steal RiD Prime's weapon? Or was it the DOTM Voyager (who has a pretty cool weapon)?

    Still, if true, what you did was amazing.
