    This seems to happen on retailer toy sites more often than you might think. WTF are they all smoking? My fav. was a boxart pic of, I think, G1 Windcharger in place of the pic. for some entirely other character on TRU.com.

    Not all retailers are given pictures to work with, and it's too much of a legal risk to take another store's image, especially if you're bigger than that store. So they scramble to make a picture that somehow relates to the product.

    Not being stupid, not being a dumbass, but trying to give people SOMETHING to see to have an idea. Yes, in this case it's a bad idea, but it's still there.

    Ah-ha! Got it! I knew there had to be a reasonable reason, but I've never known what it was until now. Thanks, KickbacK!

    Bah, I went to Woolworths to get that set, but they gave me some thing with a repaint of that Classics Starscream and some white Optimus instead! What the heck? :p
