    What do people think? What would be the definitive Megtron toy that best captures his G1 look and feel. I personally like his Revoltech figure from the early 2000's

    Revoltech is sweet, but it's pretty damn small (though the "jazz hands" he comes with can make for some pretty hilarious set ups). I think personally it would be:

    1- MP megs
    2- Hegemon
    3- Revoltech

    MP-5 for me too, nothing comes close besides Hegemon, but something about him I don't like.

    Revoltech. I know most, if not all, people are going to dismiss it since it's not an actual Transformer, but it nails the G1 character almost perfectly while giving it a nice mecha flair. The colors and detailing on the sculpt are just right and I'd say it's the best of the 4 Transformer Revoltechs (Starscream being a close second).

    I guess I should have been more clear.... I was not referring to what was the best representation of G1 toy Megatron, I meant as a G1 character..... what would be the best representation of the look and feel of Megatron from that era.

    Hegemon, then Henkei or United Voyager Megatron, then WfC Megs.

    So the actual G1 character model? Revoltech, hands down.

    Best proportioned toy based on the G1 design? Hegemon IMO

    Thanks guys!

    I also love when people don't read. WFC Megatron as the best representation of G1 Megatron?

    I think a poll would've been nice, Z. Is there any way a mod could add one to this thread with G1, MP-05, Classics/Henkei/United, Hegemon, and Revoltech as poll options? I'd throw RTS Legends in there, but am unsure if that would count.
