    i've got a chance to get one new for real cheap. Is it worth it? Any glaring faults. Is it a fun toy?

    I, for one, think's a pretty good figure. Sure, it has some odd design choices, like the hinge for the fusion cannon in bot mode and the alt mode is, um, interesting, but I think it's still a decent figure. It has pretty good poseability and articulation. If you can get one for a good price, I'd say get it.

    yeah, i initially thought it wasn't a good figure, but i played with my friend's voyager for a bit, and I do have to say he's descent, if not great. I haven't gotten him, mainly for the fact, I don't think he's worth RM 129, or $20 in your case, so if you would be able to get it cheap, don't pass on it. :)

    It's alright. Better than the god awful leader mold, which could best be described as like if those oversize KO companies inflated a scout class mold.

    I think so. If you don't mind cybertronian vehicle modes, than I'd say pick him up. He looks awesome in robot mode, has some good articlation, and the pearl-white really makes him stand out.

    No, he's awful. The Leader mold is ten times better.

    He's got short thighs and really long shins, candy colored fingers, and a crappy hinge that makes his cannon sort of float by his arm unless you mod it.

    It's smaller, but I like the deluxe better.

    Deluxe wins over the Voyager but I don't feel the Voyager is as bad as many people make out. Pity about the hinge for the arm cannon but I read it was changed at the last minute due to some design or safety problem.

    Unless you can get the Voyager for under $10, I wouldn't consider getting it and I would go for the deluxe version. The transformation is virtually identical and the arm cannon works so much better on the deluxe. As others have stated, the arm cannon on the voyager class Megs looks HORRIBLE!!! I bought one when it originally came out and returned it the next day.

    I would rate the Voyager sized Megs a B-/C+. If you can get him for under $10 go for it.

    I rather like the Voyager version, but then I don't mind the weird alt-mode and I like the appearance of the cannon. That said, the cannon gets in the way a lot in robot mode and would have been better if it weren't so big and unwieldy.

    It's one of my most hated toys ever. The robot mode is...okay, I guess. The cannon won't go flat onto the arm! I hate hate hate hate hate its alternate mode. I'm not against Cybertronian alternate modes, but this Cybertronian mode doesn't look like anything. Cyclonus and GF Starscream are neat alien jets, Hot Rod is a neat alien car, but this Megatron is a....what? I can't even tell what end is front.

    I don't even acknowledge Megatron's alternate mode. When I transform him, I transform him into a trailer/gun platform for one of the Animated Primes. Observe:
