    To be honest the box is decent, the characters are the thing that make them look neat, i mean, imagine seeing a bonecrusher or a blackout, or a nice ratchet in that box.

    Exactly.

    I can see at least long-haul being made in 3 years.

    I got my superglue ready if they don't.

    Also, just a quick reminder. The last time we saw Megatron in his MV1 form wasn't long ago, and in fact took part on the promotion for the most recent installment.

    If we are gathered here pursuing the hopes that HasTak won't deny Decepticons the right to representation in MPM form, I don't see why this iteration of Megs wouldn't be made

    Also the fact that we'll probably going to see it in the Movie animated prequel.

    EDIT: What the fuck is wrong with his head in that pic.

    If we never get an MPM Brawl it won't be the end of the world to me, his TFTM Leader figure is still amazeballs. One of my favs out of all the movie toys ever.

    Even if his MV1 design happens, how can we be certain that he'll sell well and won't jeopardize the lines continuation?

    Hey now, nobody never mentioned anything about it selling/not selling well. Your argument was that it wasn't going to be produced or even considered for production

    Why wouldn't movie 1 megs sell? Assuming he's made well, I don't see why he wouldn't. I'd sure buy him.

    It doesn't have to be other robot to "sell well", it has to be an actually good ACTION figure to do it, if you take a look at the TLK Voyager Megatron, even some die-hard movie "haters" or just simply people who not liked the live action films liked it or thought it was an overrall nice figure.

    The first megatron had so much hate because of how different it looked to the "original source", but that was at the time the movies started.

    In ROTF, he didn't had the hate of the first, but still his leader class figure didn't sold good, but not because of the design, but because of how "bad" was the figure even at the time.

    So far, the TLK megatrons have gotten great or decent reactions around the fans.

    Seriously, there is no argument to state that a MPM Megatron it's going to sell poorly, some dudes also forget or want to avoid the facts i mentioned here because they just hate the movie megatron and they spread their hate as a fact, HasTak should make a nice Megatron and "shut their mouths" or prove them being wrong.

    The thing here is that if they step up their game at the time the make a MPM Megatron, the forums will burn in HELL if it turns being EVEN BETTER than the MP Megatron as figure.

    It's a misconception or a bad interpretation of why also Hasbro didn't produced leader class figures for decepticons in the DOTM-AOE time.

    His design would have to be screen accurate to the teeth, leaving his fingers and spikey rear completely sharp and This is if they can handle it

    MP has typically always been more structured towards adults and older collectors. I don't see why HasTak can't go a little ham for him, so long as he doesn't turn into a real gun

    And Seth is right. All it needs to sell well is to be a good toy in the first place. Good quality and play ability can overcome most gripes and criticism

    A sad day for the movie franchise when a bot initially programmed with no personality emerges with more personality than an established namesake

    I want to see how turns out the official stinger


    I think his design (bumblebee too because it's the same), it's the hardest to replicate in toy, seriously, even making the Calibur Prime it's an easy thing to do than trying to make a stinger tranaformable.

    At which point did Stinger have a personality? Must've missed that.
