New Adam, New Eve

When the stun gun magically transports from Koenig to Magus, a bare arm is briefly seen moving out of frame, having placed the gun in Magus's palm. This is cut from the Network 2015 Blu-ray release, but appeared on all previous releases.
Another change made in the restoration (more minor and less objectionable) is the addition of Tony's laser beam in the caves (see observations)

New Adam, New Eve

After his gun disappears, Koenig looks at his empty hand and lowers his arm. When the gun reappears, he is posed precisely the same as when the gun disappeared. Thanks to Martin Daoust.
