    Well, Megatron's a bit anti-climactic, but I'm glad we got a toy of that "elite" Vehicon model from the season finale. Gotta see if I can afford a couple of those.

    Wasn't a third party doing an addon for Meg's arm.

    Augh that Megatron is conflicting. I feel like the micron sword is worth having a second version of but the hand just being a repaint and being mostly similar (if not the same) as PRiD Megatron is a bummer. Shoulders seem like they may be chromed again though.

    Thank god these are two moulds I do not require and my Prime collection is still technically complete.

    I would like to see more of that `Prime`arm though.

    Megatron is meh. I can't tell if he has a bit of silver paint or it's still the grey plastic the Hasbro one has.

    Jet Vehicon General looks quite good, may get it .

    My body is ready.

    EDIT: Wait, is the "Prime" arm a paint app? Because the ports on it are also red.

    FINALLY we see JVG.

    And... eh. The vehicle mode looks pretty bad, honestly. I'm thankful it comes with JV's Minicon though, I assumed it would come with regular Vehicon's to change things up. They're both bad, but JV's is better.

    I'm going to need to wait for clearer shots... if it's shiny enough, then maybe. As is... probably cancelling my PO.

    Sucks that Final Battle Megatron's arm is just a repaint. Megatron can't hold the Dark Matter Caliber very well, since his open hands don't provide sufficient support for the weight of the sword, so if he's going to come with that as an accessory the hand on the new arm should really be a closed fist. Granted, it's hard to tell from that picture whether the hand is remolded our not, but it doesn't look like it.

    Jet Vehicon General is just a straight repaint, but it still looks pretty good and it'll be nice to have a fourth 'unique' Vehicon for my army.

    Meh on both ends. Megatron looks weak, just a repainted arm with quite possibly gold stickers for detail. Vehicon looks much weaker, looks like the only silver parts are his chest detailing, everything else appears bland white.

    Agreed with the "Meh" sentiment on Megatron.

    JVG looks great though. Not quite 100% show accurate though. I *think* the JVG show model had black thighs and arms. Still looks good though.

    I was really hoping Megs would be a "better" version of the Dark Energon Voyager (bunch of clear purple plastic, throw in some chrome or something) and up the ante on the potential gaudiness of it. I was also hoping two of the three Dark Matter Calibur microns would also be in clear purple because the "Dark Star Saber" was, well, purple.

    Instead it's that. Oh well.

    I like the Jet Vehicon Generals though and I'm glad it is Igu as the micron, just because that one hasn't been reused yet. I love the Vehicon mold and this one looks solid so I'll be glad to add three more to my collection.

    It's a bummer that Megs is just a repaint and not a good one at that. At least the Darkness version is a lot more eye catching.

    The Jet Vehicon is what I expected. I may get him one day.

    I'm expecting a new Megs figure as part of the Beast Hunters line, it's coming.

    General Jeff! :D 

    Pretty much what I expected. Still no word whether or not the original or "General" version is being released stateside, huh?

    Found the screen cap someone posted awhile back.

    Yeah, definitely not show accurate. The thighs and head should be black instead of silver.

    Megatron's sadly meh.

    Vehicon General though, I will still get at least a couple of. If I pass on Megatron it makes it more likely I'll get more, too.
