Why does Blackout have an Autobot insignia?

Yeah, that sort of throws out the "movie accuracy" aspect of this figure out the window...

Oh, and he still has his stupid Mickey Mouse hands...

Well, 'original' movie Blackout was Voyager sized, thus making him a size accurate Voyager figure.

I think what he meant was the figure is Deluxe-sized with a Deluxe-sized weapon.

Cool. I thought he was talking about scale 'issues' and how Blackout should be Leader sized and all that. I was just poking fun.

This looks like a crappy kitbash.

Also, I would like to address what seems a habit of news posters: listing an item's price in yen. I don't use yen. I don't know how to convert yen to dollars. Most of us on here don't. So why in the world do they tell us the price in yen with no "approx. $___" thrown in?

And another thing, people should stop whining about movie accuracy at the same time as complaining that the hands look like Mickey Mouse hands. Those are the hands he had in the movie. Sheesh.

I think this actually looks less accurate than even the normal version does. It's (still) way too blue, and this one has too many light grey highlights. What's so hard about producing a properly colored grey & black toy?

That misplaced Autobot logo sums up the so-called "accuracy" pretty well :)

I am digging the paint scheme (minus the bot symbol ofcourse). I might just have to pony out for one of these!

I think I replied to the wrong thread about this. haha

Yeah, that AUTOBOT symbol on an obvious Decepticon bothers me greatly. How do you mess that up! hehe

Blackout's supposed to be the loyal one, but he's a bigger traitor than Starscream!

Two things explain away the autobot symbol usage. For one thing they call it a "Lawson DVD Exclusive 4500X "NEMESIS" BLACKOUT Prototype". I take the usage of "Nemesis" here to be the same as if this were a Nemesis Prime figure. As Nemesis Prime would be Optimus Prime repainted as a Decepticon, Nemesis Blackout would be movie Blackout repainted as an Autobot.

As for the other thing I take as at least an implied reason for the Autobot symbol usage, the following quote is from the eBay page.

I didn't think Blackout was "Blue + Silver", as it was put in the quote, but the quote plainly calls this figure "AUTOBOT Blackout". I think it speaks for itself, but I've got to wonder why it would get called "Autobot Blackout" if it wasn't meant to be released as as an Autobot.

A nice redeco, but just way to much money for me. I'd rather take that money and pay someone to give me something unique.

Also, why doesn't this figure have that awesome chest gun like in the film?

Four words in two pairs. 'google search' and 'currency converter'. Less than two minutes legwork and a dollar value relative to any commonly negotiable currency can be yours.
