    Its a marketing thing. Takara MP boxing puts both modes robot and car(advertising for Nissan or whoever). Then they Put the Official company logo on the car mode (%99 percent of the Official cars its on the front end or grill). They also put the official logo on the front of the box too as per agreement in the negotiations of the license.
    Now Hasbro boxing shows both modes but the do not put any other company logo on the front of the box for any MPs. In the Cool 3/4 quarter pic they like for the car modes, you can not see the VW symbol they sculpted and painted. It is too far up on the hood to be seen. And the VW rims get lost being unpainted gray and will be rotated all kinds a crooked.
    My bet ,VW said if you are going to put a 68 car accurate bug on your product and removeing our logo from the front boxing, you have to at least show the logo on the vehicle on the front.
    Hasbro thought, no way can we remold a symbol on the front of the car or show a shitty topdown car pic on the front. So keep the flap down, solves everything. TF fans who by this will know about the takara edition and figure it out.
    PS I do own the Hasbro BumbleBee and its transformation is all correct in the instructions. Hope this post helps, Your friend Malwarp

    There you have it. So it IS mistransformed on the box art. Even you are saying so.

    By "mistransformed" he's describing it as the common use of the word as a mistake, but his point is it is not a mistake. It is a deliberate alteration for promotional purposes.

    It is not correctly transformed, but it is not mistransformed. Mistransformed implies it was an accident, by his explanation.
