    This probably doesn't warrant it's own thread, at least my discrepency, but;

    So, last night, I go into the ToysRus I work in, and see a lone FOC Soundwave, and his disks. Buy them after work. Get home. Open them up. Get to fiddling and realize, Soundwave doesn't have the gun he was shown with (Ya' know, the one that looks like G1 Optimus Prime's.) No where in the box. Though, it's on the box in the product shot, and even in the instructions. He has his shoulder cannon, but no gun.
    Now, is the gun only with Soundblaster? He wasn't there for me to check. Did mine just not come with one, or did they just nick that accessory? :eek: 

    I mean, I don't really mind, Soundwave does plently without it and even if mine just didn't come with it, I wouldn't return it for one that did, because, well, I don't care enough. I'm just really curious for complete-ly-ness sake. Yes, new word @Copyright 2012

    Thanks for reading, and helping me out. :D

    Same for me, I was going nuts thinking I had dropped it somewhere. Screw up on Hasbro's part I think - but a good oppurtunity for some Shapeway creators.

    They just... inexplicably axed the weapon.

    I mean, it was weird enough that he had it in the first place. But to axe it while still mentioning it in the instructions and box? That's... wow. I'm quite disappointed, he's probably getting some Arms Microns to use as a handheld gun.

    Yep. Shame they have no guns though. The G1 gun fits fine or you can use the cannon on his shoulder, but then he has nothing on his shoulder, grr.

    If I had Soundwave (I'm getting FoC Soundblaster) I'd consider using Cybertron Soundwave's gun. The clear purple plastic matches, and... well... Cybertron Soundwave is ass so at least you're getting something out of it.

    Indeed.

    Anyone ever notice how the paint apps never match the cardbacks / boxes?

    I sold off my Cyb Soundwave long time ago :(  I wish I could keep those cylinders(?), they were neat.

    I see. :eek:  Well that blows. It would have been a good gun for someone. Is weird there was no mention of it anywhere.

    ^^^ Mr. UltimusPrime, because most of the time the figure you see is a test hot figure, which is still basically a hand painted prototype. And hand paint doesn't match the factory most of the time exactly (And explains why shades & hues don't always match.)

    Paint apps not matching is standard 'final product may vary' shenanigans. Missing accesories though? Yeah, not cool.

    Yea I ran into the same thing last night. Opened up Soundwave and swore I dropped it, or it wasn't included, or maybe it was tucked away in the figure somewhere. Searched around here, read a few reviews, realized Hasbro just didn't include it.

    That's because those product shots on the back are heavily photoshoped.

    Not really, WFC SW's gun is already questionably small for him. I've seen pictures of FoC SW with it. It's hilarious.

    G1 would probably work better, though. It's much bigger.
