    To scale with the MP10?

    I don't know of many options. Luckily he is a smaller MP.

    I recommend MP Megatron (the obvious)

    Or perhaps....

    Takara United Megatron (awesome figure!)

    3rd party Hegemon (just a bit shorter than the MP10).

    This. He's about your only option for an MP-10.

    This is the biggest problem with the new Prime. He needs a Megatron in the same scale. That Hegemon figure...eh. I hate the bulky legs. The upper part looks decent.

    I'll be surprised if Takara doesn't get to it.

    I'm sure it will look better than Hegemon. Unless your comfortable paying for Hegemon as a placeholder, I would suggest patience.

    I'd be surprised if they do because if they were going to get it to, shouldn't we have one by now? Having a weapon as an alt mode might prevent another MP Megatron from ever being made again.

    MP-10 was released less than a year ago, so I'm not at all surprised that nothing official has been revealed yet about a new MP Megatron. The previous releases has MP-1 Prime (MP-2, MP-3, MP-4) MP-5 Megatron with several years in between.

    If there's going to be a new MP Megatron I think we'll have to wait a few years. 2013 or later.



    I don't think there's a good G1 version of Megatron to go with MP-10. Hegamon is simply too small, while MP-5 is too big. We'll simply have to wait until Takara releases a new MP Megatron.

    In the meantime...there is going to be an empty spot on the shelf. The only toy of G1 Megatron that seems to be the right size for MP-10, is the G2 Megatron figure. But admittedly, that doesn't look a lot like G1 Megatron

    Patience Daniel-san. Megatron will be made soon enough. Too many of these threads are popping up. Are we as a fandom really this impatient now? Takara hasn't made any big ticket Optimus without making a Megatron to pair up with yet, and I'd bet my whole collection they aren't bucking that trend yet. Besides, peruse the Hegemon thread's first bit of pages and you'll see where people were saying they'd seen some of the plans or something of the ilk for a new version mp Megatron. Just wait. To quote Andy Griffith, put yer bullet back in yer pocket now Barney.
