It does, and as far as I know (which could be wrong, I need to brush up on this info) they didn't. I think the bomber's laser cannons are near the wings. A good length away from eachother, and not too accurate.

There's some confusion on the whereabouts of the laser cannons on the TIE Bomber. Some sources have it like the TIE Interceptor, with the guns on the wings (like Starfig mentioned); while others say they're under the cockpit just like a regular TIE Fighter (like in Dark Forces2: Jedi Knight); and I believe they're actually in the center portion near the top - you can see 'em on the Hasbro toy.

If they're under the cockpit, they're missing. If they're on the wings, they're not missing but they're kinda rounded since they're from the Darth Vader TIE Fighter. If they're where I think they are, then they're right where they're supposed to be on the toy.

I think JT's right, I checked Behind The Magic and got this picture of a TIE Bomber prop from the front.

Nice picture LTBasker. :)
Yep, that looks like that would be where the lasers would be placed. Man, I cannot wait for this vehicle to be in my hot little hands. I hope that it sells really well and Hasbro will do a 25th Anniversary properly scaled and sculpted Tie Fighter. If so, I will be buying two and replacing the center section of my TIE Interceptor as well. :)
