    I am soon going to get energon Megatron (to complete my 3 3's collection) and was wondering if any of you board members could spare some input. (I'm probobly going to get him anyway but I'd like as much info as I can get.)

    Thank you in advance.

    He's easily available on eBay (not very expensive either), pretty big, and the smaller Japanese version was sold in a 2 pack with deluxe Energon Prime. He comes with a small version of Armada Megatron in tank mode, that fits on top of his aircraft mode and also lights up the transparent sword he comes with. Fairly simple transformation, but a very kickass robot mode. In all, a very cool toy IMO. Anything other info you need?

    All I can say is highly recommended. I would suggest you get Energon Galvatron, its the same mold in purple color, because it looks a lot like Galvatron from G1.

    Do his arms swivel? I looked at every picture on the internet I could find and still can't tell! Also, is his spark crystal on the left or right shoulder?

    And I'm after Megatron, not Galvatron, but thanks for your input!

    His spark crystal is on (looking at him from the front in robot mode) the right side, but both sides have the circle shape thing that an Energon star can attach to.

    Another difference, The smaller two pack figure has more show accurate weapons, in the sense that they are a much more 'glowy' green, as opposed the the turquoisey colour of the big one.

    and I'm not sure what you mean about 'swivel', but on the smaller one, for arm articulation:-
    -360 degree rotation of the shoulder
    -shoulder cannons flip down
    -shoulder joint to allow arm to swing out 90degrees to the side
    -joint on elbow to allow complete movement backwards and forwards
    -lower arms can rotate. (I'm not sure if that describes it properly, I'll dig out the smaller one if you want and take a picture to show you what I mean.)

    I know the little one can swivel his lower arms, I meant the big one. (pitcures help though)

    To my knowledge, whatever articulation is on the smaller one is on the larger one. I've got them both upstairs, and the smaller one is just like the larger one in practise... just smaller.

    i say, go for the optimus prime/megatron energon two pack on bbts, it's only like $54 or something like that and you can just wait for a sale. and get it for like $30. it is the same toy, it is just smaller, and is actually the original, like cybertron starscream, being a supreme, vs galaxy starscream being a lot smaller.

    Im about 90% sure that they dont, and he only has swivel shoulders, the arms cant swing out to the sides.

    Good choice on getting the big Megatron, the smaller one may be show accurate, but I prefer the paint on the larger one, plus I love the imposing size of the big one. Congrats on your buy.
