    Hi! I just have to share this. Encore G1 Megatron or G1 Megatron is really a nice toy he is really up there with G1 Optimus Prime. I'm having so much fun with this toy that it may actually become my favorite. So OK he's not that articulated and his forehead is big. So what? Just look at it. I mean he's shinny and bad-ass looking. I'm very happy with this one and I hope I can persuade some of you to get it while its cheap.

    Megatron with decals applied is really an eye-candy!

    Megatron comes with a chrome sword. Very nice!

    Megatron has two guns! The fusion canon and this chrome gun! Chrome really makes the figure look great!

    This is one cool feature of this toy. You can assemble the stock and barrel extension to become a super cannon! I mean just imagine how good Masterpiece Megatron will be with that addition.

    Here's another neat trick. You can mount the fusion canonn and some of the barrel to give megatron a sort of shoulder mounted canon. Pretty cool!

    Thanks for looking.

    Since he was designed in the mid-late 70's, I can overlook the lack of articulation. Man is that a nice presentation piece! I can't believe it but I might buy some of the Encores. Nostalgia FTW!

    Probably, and if they're an unscrupulous officer with a Transformers collection of their own (who happens to be missing out on a G1 Megatron), then doubly so!:wink:

    Awesome photos.

    You missed showing the feature where the pellet launcher comes off the stock and fits to the back of the gun barrel under his chest in robot mode. That way he can fire pellets from there too.

    So shiny!

    Awesome photos and feedback. Your enthusiasm really comes through. Any G1 Megatron is a must-have.

    I also like the fact Megatron doesn't mess around with an itty-bitty sword. Its a big honk shiny blade of kick-assery. Just he way it should be.

    Looks great!

    I sure hope Agesthreeandup.com comes through for me.:thumb 

    Definitely want one, but I probably won't open it. I'm all about MISB for this one.

    G1 Megs is a great toy, glad to see others appreciate him. If I didn't already have TFC 06 Megatron, my old vintage Megatron, and Ehobby Megaplex, I'd pick up Encore Megatron for sure. But I decided to let some others have their turn to get him this time. :)

    Nice shots!
    Is it possible to show what sort of paperworks it comes with?
    Do you have the earlier reissues for comparing? Would like to find out if the color of the plastic is really different.

    I'm interested as well, because I may not open my encore megatron and sell it if I like the old one better
