    Hey, i just picked up this figure, and i have a quick question. I never had the original version of the mold so i dont know, but is his gun suppose to fire? Or did Hasbro nerf the mechanism. Because theres a button but i can only pull out the missile after pressing it. Did i do something wrong?

    If I'm not mistaken, it's something they've taken out for the reissue. I think they did the same thing to some of the TRU reissues. Basically it has something to do with the modern toy restrictions. These same restrictions are why we'll never see a reissue or repaint of the G1 Fort Max mold sold here in the US.

    Ebay:
    There's no spring inside.

    So, yes it is supposed to, but no, it's not supposed to.

    If that makes any sense.

    What it is .... the Original G1 Version did have Firinr projectiles..... and Hasbro took it out of the Reissue becuase of safty reasons .....two things , either Hasbro could've left in the projectile gimmick but give Soundwave some big ugly looking projectiles , or they could leave out the spring feature and leave the same original size and shape missles to look more like the original.......

    i just took a pen spring and put it in there, although it fires with the missile, it still fires.
