    If I get a version of this mold, I'd like it to be in TM Meg's colors, but sans breakage issues.

    How much would I have to pay for the Takara version?

    The last one that sold on eBay went for $30. I'd say that's about what you should expect to pay.

    Wait, so the takara version doesn't suffer from breakage?

    Curious, because if true I may have to buy one as well.

    Reportedly the Takara one is free of this issue at least.

    I'm too cheap to shell out for the Takara one so I picked up an Armada Predacon as backup. My TM Megatron is intact but I'm apprehensive about transforming him.

    I fixed my American Transmetal Megatron and its a pretty easy thing to do. Just disassemble his legs and reattach it to the Torso. Its only 1 screw that holds it together.

    Mine didn't break, it just split in half however. Oh and I brought a Takara TM Megatron for like 25 some years back. Its not exactly the same color, because the American version is Brown and this one is sorta pink/brown? Hard to describe. Well worth the money! Awesome figure
