    It should have been included in the box, in a small bag. But I've heard of people receiving copies that are missing this extra.

    I think I remember seeing a while back that the newer stocks of the figure didn't come with the Autobot symbol and also had 2 blue lights.

    But someone can correct me if I'm wrong. I'm guessing if you got 2 blue lights on the cannons, you got a recent release. Edit: looks like some got it and some didn't.

    It's possible that it wasn't included. You can fab one yourself by buying a 3D autobot sticker from toyhax and painting it black.

    Yes, this is exactly what I have done. With a little trimming it fit perfectly. It’s further back in this thread. If you want to see.

    I remembered this! But I was too lazy to go back and see who had posted it. Nice work. Looks like a perfect solution.

    I’ve had this figure for a few weeks now and he’s alright. He’s really nice as a display piece but fiddly to mess with. Not many poses you can get him in. Mine came with an orange led, but no autobot symbol. I did the same thing that ghostyurei did.

    I had the same problem too. I simply dropped some superglue in the slot to thicken it.

    I have a problem. I’m trying to unscrew the battery compartment for one of the cannons, but the screw is just spinning. Like the threading just doesn’t exist. Does anyone know what I can do to remove it?

    Try to pry the battery compartment lid upward gently with something as you unscrew it. They probably stripped the threads upon assembly, but it should come out if you pry it as you turn the screw. Good luck.

    Sorry for necroposting, but this is one of the coolest figure pics I’ve seen on these boards. Great job! :) 

    Also, just ordered this guy from TF Safari. The last figure I need to complete my MPM ‘07 Autobot collection, can’t wait to have him in hand!
