United Laser Optimus Prime Retooled from Hasbro Version!

{mosimage}Today I received my Transformers United UN-22 Laser Optimus Prime.  Immediately in the package I noticed the peg that hindered his arm movement (the peg that so many collectors simply permanently removed) was wider but considerably shorter than his Reveal the Shield counterpart.  The new short and broad peg does not hinder his arm articulation like the longer, more slender peg.  This isn't the first time there have been slight mold differences between a TakaraTomy Transformer and its Hasbro counterpart.  Hopefully this change will show up in later produced Reveal the Shield G2 Optimus Prime figures.

You can discuss the difference on our forums.
