    So I recently got a bunch of the Studio Series BBM figures (Wheeljack, Ironhide, Ratchet, Brawn, Arcee, Soundwave and Ravage) on the recent Walmart 2-pack deals and Amazon after waiting forever for a decent enough sale price for me.

    They're all pretty good figures and I'm digging them like dirt, but is there any reason most of them have very slight variations on the same rifle? It's super weird to me, and Soundwave has his shoulder cannon (and nice trick putting the missile with Ravage, Hasbro, I see what you did there :lol ) but this random-ass, generic rifle and it's just kinda wrinkling my brain.

    I might be wrong but I think it's literally what they're concept art looked like

    I can’t remember exactly but I remember from looking at shots in the film, the rifle models are all different slightly.

    The Cybertron scene was made very late in the production. The reason the guns are all just slightly different is because they were likely done like that to save time.

    Looking at it more, it does look somewhat more accurate but personally DLX Prime never looked inaccurate enough for me to buy upgrade bits for him, even if cheap. But I don't think the kit impedes the Super Mode, though that's fine regardless since I don't have Jetfire. Love the old geezer but I don't know if I'm ready to make that huge an investment, and he's just to huge to put anywhere. Ha.


    And I see, well I've noticed it's only DLX Prime that gets this dusty. Though he's looking way better now :)  IMG_7945.jpeg

    He looks much better now! And yeah, Jetfire looked amazing but it's a lot of money to spend. Also, I think you meant to write "geezer"? haha

    FINALLY! Not buying him yet, but crazy that the main villain is just BARELY making his way out onto shelves. (At least a decent looking one) 20231121_080933.jpg
