    Dear future generations,

    I would like to sincerely apologize for my generation and my parents generation.

    - I would like to apologize for some stupid kid pointing a fake gun at an officer way back in the 80's
    - I would like to apologize for the cop thinking it was a real gun and shooting the kid
    - I would like to apologize for the parents who couldn't teach their kids not to point guns at cops
    - I apologize for the parents and law makers who thought it would be easier to pass laws against realistic looking gun toys then to teach their children right from wrong
    - I apologize for the government and/or groups who harass toy companies that make acurate gun toys.

    In ending, I apologize that my generation and the one before mine are so dumb, that you may never know what it is to buy anything as remotely awesome as G1 Megatron in US retail stores. I only hope that our generations inventing the internet would make up for this sin. Seek out G1 Megatron reissue or otherwise and see what you are missing. Then and only then can you understand my apology.

    I would also like to Thank Insane Galvatron for hooking me up with the Reissue. This thing is BAD ASS. Yeah the bot mode sucks, but the Alt mode is beyond epic! Never had one as a kid, so I get to feel the love for it now.

    I agree with you on the stupidity that is humanity and all the easy outs it takes.

    Yes and no. I actually got Reissue Megatron today and was playing with it. Just the weight alone is amazing. Head to toe, the thing is plain awesome (except for bot mode of course). Then I started thinking that because of our policies and stupidity, my son would never get to play with something like this unless he hears about it online somehow and pays to have something like this imported.

    That prompted the apology. Almost an apology to my son if he reads this in the future.

    These two posts go together so nicely. The guy who thought of NERF Megatron fits Transbot's description oh so well. That man should be fired, just for the idea. Even worse, it made it up the latter, got approved and got made.

    Could you imagine the great Megatron being a NERF gun. What, he would kill the autobots when the passed out from laughing too much?

    I think Im the only person that likes the Nurf Megatron. He ain`t anywhere close to being a perfect G1 MEGS but I do think that very figure defines Classics perfectly.

    Well, I want to make a counter apology for future generations to us now:

    "Hey, bozos! Look at those silly "plastic" toys you have! The stuff we play with is SO much better! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!"

    I don't mind the mould. I wish the wings were detachable, but if you ignore them, he's a pretty sweet Megatron. Of course, I keep him in robot mode, and I have a Henkei! Henkei! one (United is also cool).

    I'd like him if it weren't for the wings :lol 

    Seriously, though I think the robot looks amazing.

    And as for the OP's post... I'm sorry. I look at my RTS Lugnut holding my RTS Legends Megatron in alt-mode, and I can't help but make a :\ face at the idea of the powerful leader of the Decepticons taking a mode that made him a) immobile and b) dependent on someone else to make him useful in combat. I understand the nostalgic factor of the classic Gun Megatron, but I just can't accept it for myself. So, personally, I'll take the eggplant-jungle-camo tank over the gun. At least he can shoot things without having Starscream pull his trigger.

    I think I'd take a tank Megatron over a gun Megatron any day. It must be frustrating for him to have an alt. mode he can't use on his own.

    Well the original post is not so much talking about alt modes and such, it is more about the fact that the closest anyone would get to a Gun toy is Legends Megatron, still with that dumb orange paint on the barrel.

    Also, in the cartoons he was able to fire himself.

    That's just silly.

    Also, I guess the future generations will have to import, too. Thereby keeping the collector's cycle stable. :D

    Well no one never said anything about G1 cartoon not being silly.

    How about the episode where the Autobots become movie stars? LOL.

    Sure, he can fire himself. But can he aim himself? :lol
