    Okay true but maybe this is a tab that goes into these slots 1000001516.jpg 1000001517.jpg

    Or maybe I'm crazy and I need to just be shot already

    I don’t think there’d be enough clearance on account of the red wheel on the gun getting in the way, but maybe it works with the ladder folded out of the way. That’d be neat!

    Maybe if I complain loud enough they'll add a 5mm port like how they added the missiles

    Are you sure the ridge facing down wouldn’t be a more appropriate tab for that are? Would allow clearance for the handle to just go behind his shoulder.

    The shoulder-mounted gun doesn't seem to be a thing in the animation model, so they might intend for it to just stay stowed on the backpack this time around.

    Correct. The feature that was also never advertised for the toy (at least in Japan). Personally I think the backpack storage on the HasLab is neater. I always wished the original figure had a better way of storing the gun out of sight in super mode.

    I wish we had a third tier where we could get all three Autobot Brothers.

    There's the peg on the right side of his backpack that the gun can attach onto.

    That's not how HasLab tiers work.

    You're talking about giving away an extra $75 USD of value on a pricetag that's already fulfilled.

    I hope there is a secret after-campaign-is-finished tier, where they reveal they got so many orders, they will cut the price in half for everyone who backed.

    Well I’ll be damned! While not the most secure connection, that certainly does the trick. Awesome, dude! Thank you for making me appreciate this amazing toy even more!

    So the liquidation of the Australian branch of EB with Hasbro directly handling the processing of those orders?

    The amount of orders you can count on a single hand.

    I'm not sure if that was ever shown in the anime or not, but was the fire ladder/backpack ever intended to be a weapon of any sort with the Prime in "super mode" or just a back pack and nothing more?

    Yes. Repeatedly. It's his primary armament, and the main reason he enters the mode in the first place. Both as a missile battery and for its powerful water cannon (and maybe even freeze ray? Been a while since I've seen the show).

    It follows the toy's functionality of swinging over his shoulder like a giant bazooka.
