    Was there more than one color scheme released for the Micron Legends MC-05 Cyberhawk released in the United States as Armada Laserbeak? I remember seeing a black and red version that resembles Generation One Laserbeak more than the Armada orange version, but I don't know if it was ever mass produced. Thanks in advance for your help everyone.

    If I remember correctly it was a test shot that made it into the booklets but had to be recoloured due to the fact that the black/red colourscheme made the gun-mode look to realistic to pass US safety laws.....
    havn't heard about any takara exclusive of that mold either...

    Would anyone buy a black/red Armada Laserbeak? Really? I think eHobby would lose big.

    They should have dropped the gun mode instead of painting it orange. Having a transformer that looked like a real camera would have sold better to the kids, I think.

    Laserbeak is probably my favorite Armada figure. Being a gadget-former and having an animal robot mode already gave him enough cool points to overcome his horrible color scheme, so I would gladly buy another one if they repainted it in catalog colors.
