Many of you have already guessed that the figure will be fitted with an orange plug so that it can pass through customs, and comply with toy safety laws. This means that the boxes will be opened before they arrive to the U.S. and an orange plug will be inserted into the barrel. BBTS also explains that the orange plug will affect the use of the silencer. Here is what they had to say:
Updated Information: The orange plug attached to the Megatron hinders the use of the silencer. The silencer attachment will not fit over the orange plug, we apologize for this inconvenience! A small slit in the inner plastic packaging was made so the extra length of the tip would fit back inside the tight packaging.

Seems like the only repaint option for MP megs.

Not Encore Megs, but I got MP Megs from them with a plug. It did have some sort of adhesive, but it was still removable with a pair of pliers and left no permanent residue behind. Just a quick twist and pull... I can't recall if I had to wipe away any rubbery glue crap or not after removal, but I do know looking at it now, you wouldn't know there was once a plug in him.
