    I just traded with a board member to get BT Laserwave a week ago, so I'm incredibly biased. And as I've never owned MP Megatron, but have heard bad things about the mold, I say go with Laserwave.

    BT Laserwave is by far cooler imo.

    Not that I have it... but I do have two of the Alternator version and one MP Megatron.

    Laserwave.

    MP-Megatron......Yeah No way Jose. I think it's worst figure ever made aside from BM Supreme Cheetor and anyone on TJOmega's Plastic addict top 5 list.

    It really depends.

    I've owned both, although I sold off all of my Alts 2 years ago...

    MP Megatron is a great display piece. Very imposing. I've never transformed the figure in my 3 years of owning it, but I've read that it's a a tedious process. Also, the foot issue is just tarnish. If you make sure to invest in a metal polish and cloth, that problem is essentially nullified.

    Shockblast is cool, but it depends if you have an enthusiasm for Alternators or not. The line is very nice. I regret selling off mine. Are you using him as a Shockwave stand-in?

    i really like alternator shockblast and mp megs.

    i'd probably give the edge to shocky though.

    MP megaton. But you have to have MP04 in your display. I can't imagine having him any other way.

    BT shockwave or LZ if you want, is the better toy. Also MP kegs might get a better version soon enough. One where it actually fits your hand.

    If you have MP Prime, then I think it's a no-brainer to get MP Megatron. Yeah he's a pain to transform, but it CAN be done as long as you're not expecting a five minute process. Plus he just looks amazing standing next to MP Prime in all their 12" glory, and his gun alt mode is awesome regardless if it's oversized or not.

    BT Shockwave... well, Shockwave was never a tiny 4-door car, so there's that. And I've always found the die cast Binaltechs to be much more of a pain in the ass than their plastic Alternators counterparts due to being top heavy and VERY easy to chip upon repeated transforms.

    I love Shockwave and have virtually every incarnation of him inclusive of the BT/Alt, but all in all I think MP Megatron is a better bang for the buck if you plan on getting more BT/Alt Autobots and the MP Seekers. It makes for an absolutely amazing display set.

    And i do have mp-04 and not gonna get mp-10 so if they do make a new version of him, I will have to spend 100 dollars more and another 250 for mp-10. So yeah,

    i found megs much easier to transform than mp roddy.

    as to why i prefer shockblast…it's just a fun little toy and to my eyes is more aesthetically pleasing then megs.

    you really can't go wrong with either though.

    that makes this decision harder. lol

    MP megs since you do have MP prime. MP04 needs his bestfriend. for display purposes, this is a better decision.

    how many Alts an BTs do you have? from what I recall you do have alts/bts already. these can wait though. get BT shockwave later. if MP megs is priced around 120$. get it right away.
