    i was just wondering, do the wings on classics megatron come off? if so, can they easily be taken on and off? and if someone could take a pic, that would be awesome

    the wings don't come off but this is what you can do to have them come off when you want. it doesn't affect transformation

    You can cut away some of the plastic around the pin that keeps the wings on. If you don't cut too much off, the remaining plastic will still grip the pin, while letting you remove the wings anytime.

    They look better if you display them upsidedown with the convext are facing forward and the tabs folded down helps a little too - but in general the Hasbro one is so ugly I tend to ignore it since I got the Henkei One - he's a lot better looking (still ugly - but better than the Hasbro one.

    You could try knocking the pin out and then varnising the surround so it grips without the pin in the slot.

    If you knock out the pin then you can easily remove the wings. Then when you want gun mode, it doesn't affect its ability to stay in place

    You're all insane. The "wings" are awesome, and they create a giant 'M' on his back. 'M' for "Megatron is about to blow shit up!"

    I love the M wings. They make his ability to fly in robot mode less goofy.

    as much as i love the henkei version, i may pick up the united version without the chrome chest. i don't mind the wings, i think they look cool.

    I agree. The 'revolver' detail from the gun mode looks like thrusters to me.

    I also like that the United version has less purple and yellow paint apps.

    I don't have a problem with how they look, but they make it a little difficult to balance him.

    I'm more interested in knowing if there's an easy way to remove the clear parts from the wings so's I can dye an extra Hasbro Megatron black

    The wings are molded entirely in clear plastic.
