    does his lack of a fusion cannon that has the power to melt worlds and timelines together at the starting point of the space time continuim while its being prepared to be fired subtract at all from the figure? cause ive always loved the fusion canon, sad to not see it, and it doesnt seem like Megs without it. i get mine from my grandma's tomorrow-will his lack of a canon be covered by his awesomeness?

    G1 Megatron's continuity is ALL fubbled up, so I'm not surprised Alternity Megs is just like "Screw it. I don't NEED NO CANON."

    *waits for thread title to be editted again*

    But yeah. Umm... I don't care one way or the other? The Alternity line, just like Binaltech/Alternators is more about the licensed cars and the accompanying robots are just a novelty. I don't think characters play too much in the thought process. I mean, Convoy is a Nissan Skyline.

    I still don't have this mold yet, but I can't really see the lack of the canon actually detracting from the figure itself.

    The early sketches of his fusion cannon did look kind of cool though. Who knows, maybe one of the fan Co's will make a version of it.

    For me, I find the lack of a canon distracting for me. I don't deny that the toy looks good but without the canon, something seems "missing" to me.

    I'd like to get an Alternity Megs, but I'll probably make him a different character on my shelf.

    He has a cannon - it's just too big to be visible in this dimension!

    The lack of a cannon doesn't negatively affect this figure. The swords do a lot to make it cool. Plus storywise he can cut you with his swords from like any distance. In one of the comics, he cuts Black Convoy's gun and also slices the moon surrounding their planet they are on in half (IIRC).

    Yea, this.

    The swords really are a nice touch for the figure. To add to this, the toy is just great; it's really nice.
