Default Alt Windcharger's gun barrel officially removed "so it doesn't look like a weapon"

http://www.tfans.com/index.php?showtopic=13088

Looks like it WAS Honda's request. Oh well.

So that might mean Overdrive is going to suffer from the same fate.

Someone who's got a proto/test shot and would like to do repros of the driveshaft/gun barrel?

So lemme get this right, Honda has NO trouble with thier cars being featured in violent movies, but not associated with a toy that has a gun?

I remember that from the the package pics. The package called it a shield. Friggin' brilliant! So, he's got two shields and no offensive weapons, huh? That just makes it look like he's afraid to get hit or something.

Because there's never been a Transformer without offensive weapons before...

Blatantly obvious...
Makes replacing it with a repro piece quite easy, though.

Question

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the alternate mode of G1 Megatron a f***ing gun?!

Leave Transformers alone! It's a show/movie about war.............


DEAL WITH IT!!!

And that has to do what exactly with Windcharger/Overdrive, a toy with an alt mode licensed by Honda, being stripped of his gun barrel?

What I'm trying to say is, the public never had a problem with the Transformers wepons before. I don't see the problem, if it doesn't resemble a gun, what does it resemble? A nightstick? C'mon!! Without the gun all he has are those magnets.

Think of it as a Honda with fire power, and an additude to match it.

Man...that is really dumb looking...not to mention cheesy.

Screw Honda...the S2000 is an ugly friggin' car anyway. If it wasn't for Overdrive's sweet looking robot mode (in my opinion) I wouldn't even bother with this one.

Is it just me, or do these pictures make Windcharger look like a really cheap, low quality toy?

Only for two years. Then you have Galvatron, a purple/grey thing with a candy cane sticking out of it, a green tank, a purple tank, a car and a jet. All the same character.

Looks like a silly-looking phaser.

"There's Klingons off the starboard bow, Jim!"



I'm not complaining, of course.
