    WOW....I LOVE CYBERVERSE STUFF.

    I do not like the voyager megs for DOTM, but this is pretty good for a lil figure.

    Lots of arm and leg articulation, the "mack truck" mode is HIGHLY detailed...Im VERY impressed with the truck. Ironhide has alot of mini-mechtek points in truck mode. Megatron does not seem to have any, but the 3mm clip on his tank pivots and can clip on his smokestack to look like a turret...I guess...

    TFmation is simple and cool...how I like it for lil guys. Megatron has 2 hands than can hold weapons or interact with the playsets.

    His Gas tank splits apart, and becomes 2 cannons, and then in the instructions, just like in TF1 they come together in front to form his "fusion cannon"...its KICK ASS. The detail on the weapons is damn good, and they index into each other for fusion cannon mode.

    Interesting fact, The 3mm clip on his fusion cannon pivots. Havent figured out why, but it would clip right on primes back, or other points im more configurations with this pivot point

    The fusion cannon itself has a 3mm clip that can clip on his shoulder. The instructions dont show that, but there is a spot I figured out.

    The head on this guy has almost more detail than voyager megatron. Later when I get my Nikon charged up, I will take close ups...its simply impressive what they do with the lil guys here

    I was going to get the version with the trailer, but I think I'll get this one instead. The guns are too good to pass up.

    these little figures look awesome (i hope megatron is the same but different than the one with the extended trailer like optimus and his non accurate colours) can't wait to get them in the uk

    probably the most impressive figure I've seen of this class imo. Very cool looking. Im really into the new megatron design for dotm. Both toys look brilliant.

    A damned great figure; I've been playing with him for days....great detail, amazing alt mode, fun transformation....I'm just waiting for a bit of free time to paint him up some....maybe get a LED for his head too...
    Highly highly recommended. Great fun.

    Look at the detail behind his chest..

    Probably THE reason I love these as much as I do is the size. Im a HUGE Joe buff, and these just kinda feel right at home in my hands. YES I love my big TFs too, but theres something goin on here about cyberverse I cant put my finger on. I LOVE cyberverse stuff.

    The fusion cannon that comes together ala TF1 is just awesome. AWESOME. I lived the part where he kinda converted his arms for the big gun. This is real neat

    FUSION CANNON: there is some more goin on here that I cant figure out. When they are together, there is a spot on the bottom that looks like a "T" shaped pin could fit under it, like a mount to put this gun on. Its there, its the 3mm size. and I cant figure it out. Dosent work for anything in robot or truck. Looks like if attached it would allow the gun to pivot up and down..

    I wonder if Peaugh can see if there is a spot on his trailer/mechsuit where this could incorporate
    Also there is the 3mm clip that can rotate..give more options

    I can't confirm without having it in hand, but yeah, I can see a bit on the base mode that might be able to peg into that.

    I think I almost like him better than the Voyager version. The fusion cannon is awesome, as is the transformation.

    The ability for his fuel tank halves to combine into the larger fusion cannon that can be attached either 2007-style or traditionally on his right arm is pretty awesome. I, too, had thought about just passing this one up for the one with the trailer, but I'll probably get both now. Also, I love the behind-the-chestplate details for the torso.

    These commanders will be the first figures I will be getting two of each.
    I like deluxes and voyagers, but have always been a fan of the smaller size classes due to them being closer in scale to each other.
    This review of Megatron just gets me even more excited for Monday. Absolutely can't wait to assemble the Legions!

    I prefer this Megatron's head paint way better than the one with the base.

    Man, I can't wait to get a bunch of Cyberverse figures and add weapons to all their bases and put all their bases together like a big robot encampment. Oh man, that'd be even better once the Ark comes out.

    DUDE!!!

    I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW IT!!!


    NOW THAT looks soooooooooo cool..

    Thanks for checkin out my theory....Even better reason to get this one AND the trailer. Then we all have an extra to paint up and trick out, and not feel bad because we dont have one to fiddle with after its all painted pretty..

    Thanks again man, That was really cool

    It looks like you could use the clip and clip in on one of the sides too. Looks like there is a clip point half way between main base and outer wheels..

    Mabye....Can they pin or clip on the trailer for a "weapon mode"?

    These are fun as hell...
