    Help me out, guys. Which Megatron do I buy when I'm paid, silver Alternity Megatron or Masterpiece Megatron? I seriously can't decide.

    I'd say Alternity. Looks to be less of a pain in the ass.

    Masterpiece always if you have the money....

    Depends on if you transform them much also.
    MP megs is a nightmare to transform and very top heavy unless you get the add ons, which you must have because the leg pieces are metal and help him to stand better.

    Masterpiece first. If you can afford it, get both.

    Alternity Megatron. I don't own Alternity Megs, and have no interest in it, but MP Megatron is such a poorly-engineered piece of crap that any alternative is better than wasting money on it.

    I vote for MP Megatron. I love the transformation and how the figure manages to be accurate in both modes. That being said, once he is in robot mode, he can't really do much but stand there and look cool, and the whole tarnish from hell thing (cosmic rust) is a real pain in the ass.

    A bit more about all this: I don't transform my TFs all that much. I do them every now and then, but most of the time they're standing in robot mode looking all uber-cool. I plan on having them both eventually, it's just which one is needed in my life right at this moment (well, shortly after the 20th). What are the attachments mentioned about MP Megatron?
