So a friend/fellow awesome toy reviewer posted this picture on his website earlier:
My question is this: Why couldn’t Megatron have been upgraded into this instead of a Tank? It seems to me that something like this would have made more sense for G2 than a tank or the weird Nerf gun he was turned into in the Classics line. This makes me feel old as I can vaguely remember when you could buy a toy uzi or other gun in the 80s and they would actually be black and look just like real guns. The urban legend is that toy companies changed the colors to colors that would make the toy guns look more like toy guns because people were using toy guns to hold up banks and stuff like that. As I said, sounds like an Urban Legend in my book but there’s probably validity in there somewhere.
