    The Vehicon looks good. That pink is a little weird though.

    Nice! I'm digging that purple on the Jet Vehicon. It's a nice Classics Skywarp style purple which I like a lot.

    The Jet Vehicon's vehicle mode just looks horrible. I'm definitely not going to wild with the troop building for this guy.

    Wow, that Megatron. Eeugh. Its a real shame, in the nice dark grey that his arms and legs are he'd look great. Slathered in obnoxious chrome this isn't even amusingly bad like G2 or AM Thundercracker, just regular bad.

    I do actually like the pink on the vehicon, but that vehicle mode is not fantastic. It certainly isnt anything I'd pay takara prices for. I'll stick with my regular vehicon.

    Incidentally, going by those 'no photos' photos from that Japanese exhibit, i think Darkness Megatron's box matches the one for Gaia Unicron.

    Megatron looks like an absolute mess (as I'd expected), but I like the Jet Vehicon a good deal. I'll see if I can't order one or two once my parents have had some time to forget my recent purchases and get off my back.

    Loving the look of Vehicon - got mine on pre-order from Kapow. But that Megatron is all sorts of urgh. A novelty item at best IMO.

    I love that Megatron, but the Dark Energon version of the figure looks so much better. So i'm saving for that.

    Loving the Jet Vehicon! :thumb  Hoping to get him soon!

    I like how Megatron looks. The Chrome looks a little out of place but I like the shade of gray on his other parts a lot more then the Hasbro version.
