    I have a MISB Takara 16-S Megatron (the chrome one not black) which I bought a few years ago and as far as I can tell from the reviews and links on other sites it fires the bullets.

    However, due to the price I paid for him a few years ago (£100) I am reluctant to crack it open.

    But my question is does the Encore Megatron fire the bullets as this would be a much cheaper alternative for me to buy, open, sticker up and display?

    Actually as they are going so cheap these days, does the TFC one fire them?

    Thanks for your help

    The TFC one should be a fully functional gun. It certainly comes with the bullets. I've never fired mine, though.

    My TFC Megatron had the firing mechanism broken in the sealed box, so it didn't fire the bullets. There is a little plastic tab inside and it was bent in half. I don't know whether it was done deliberately at the factory or I just got a bad one.

    Anybody here have a TFC Megatron that fires bullets? Particularly the second run of them from fairly recently, because that's where mine came from.
