    I just love the 'Eat This Autobots!' sticker on the cannon, unfortunately, mine is really banged up, with very little of the stickers left at all.

    i wouldn't say he's the best megatron ever made. his articulation is atrocious and the head flap on mine was broken.

    i much prefer the mini megatron version of this mold. shame they didn't release the smaller one with this colour scheme

    That's an awesome figure! Tons of cool sounds! A ver y very nice mold for that year and the BEST alt mode for Megs ever mad (I never liked the gub even since G1 ) . Iy looks really nice in a blettle with Laser OP. Eventhough I like the small Hero Megs best. It's small but more posable.

    He's cool, still a classic! Way better than that stoopid film crap they're rrying to pass as Megs.

    He has one of the best classic megatron heads, true, but his lack of articulation and aesthetics really hamper him.

    I love his aesthetics. I also like the way his legs close up in back to make give him a solid look no matter what angle you look at him from. and he could even store extra missiles in his legs! very awesome.

    the articulation is forgivable, as they were still coming off G1 at the time. no early G2 toys had decent articulation. he's big, imposing, solid as hell, I love him.

    the smaller version is flimsier, and I never could get the little guy to stand up, partially because he had no feet. the air-cannon sucked compared to the big version's cannon that could carry 4 missiles at a time.

    The only "Classic" headed Megs that you can display with Alts/Masterpiece/Leader size TFs.

    It's a cool design. The Marvel comics version is MUCH better. I'd love to see a repaint of it to make it look more "gritty". I might give mine the "black smudge" treatement.

    Brilliant toy; the first G2 toy I got back in the day. The only letdown was the electronics; "Megatron attack!" in a twatty voice. Other than that, he's awesome.

    Awesome!

    I love G2 Meg's, one of the first TF's I can remember having growing up as a kid so I've always had a lot of love towards this toy. He's a brick in many ways but is just awesome regardless :D 

    Awesome pickup! :thumb

    Yeah, I managed to grab one off eBay a little while back that had all six missile and the "light" thing that attaches to the side of the cannon. The sounds the cannon makes usually don't go off when they should, but otherwise the guy kept it in great shape. Articulation does suck, but that was par for the course in those days and it took them until the upcoming classics two pack to do a better Earth-realistic vehicle alt mode Megs.
