For customers in the United States ONLY, HobbyLink Japan will be inserting a plastic, orange plug into the end of the barrel in order to keep this toy in compliance with Title 15, Chapter 76 of the United States Code.
Installing this cap on the item will require our staff to open the packaging, which will require cutting the tape holding the box flap closed. This will be performed with the utmost care, but of course it will prevent us from delivering this product to US customers in "unopened" condition. Note that without this modification, your purchase could be confiscated by the US Customs Service and/or you could be charged with a crime under the above US Federal Law.
HobbyLink Japan understands and appreciates the desires of US-based toy collectors related to merchandise of this nature, and we feel this is the best solution to meet those needs under the circumstances. In order to maintain your item's compliance with US laws, we recommend that you not remove the plastic cap after you have received the item.
Fans' calls for a reissue of the classic '80s Transformers toy line have been answered with this Transformers Encore series, with a package design very reminiscent of (but not identical to) the original release's packaging. Here's transformable Megatron, complete with a barrel extension and shoulder stock for use when transformed into a customized Walther P38 handgun. In gun mode, Megatron features a working trigger and can shoot the included red pellets. A fantastic reissue that's not to be missed!
