My guess is similar to Takara encore TF Reissues. Takara replaces the paper stickers with factory painted on decals/tattoos.

 

They only do that when they can't reproduce the decals. Devastator had sticker sheets, Soundblaster and Twincast had their stickers pre-applied. There's only been a few cases where they chose paint over stickers.

 

If this is really a Takara release then it's possible there'll be a less complex packaged version sold in Japan. When Takara releases MP figures in Asia they come with special packaging bonuses and coins that the Japanese retail versions don't have.

 

I can only assume all the chrome is there so they fit in with all the bootleg Transformers.

I always liked chrome guns. Depending on the price I may be game.
