    Oh, and btw, for those who are wondering about how big he is compared to PE Mega Dorogon, here he is with PE Beast Gorira (which should be approx the same size as Mega Dorogon):

    Im nit completely sure this is correct. Beast gorira is like 10" tall. This is almost 12" there should be a larger size difference. The beast figure one is in a wide stsnce so that'd make a difference i suppose

    According to a scale chart done by @GALVATOM he pegged transmetal 2 megatron at about 32 cm so 30 cm isnt that far off (literally like 11.9" and 12.2"). I also feel like there should be a larger size differemce between the images above. MP megatron is like 24-25 cm or like 9.5" and this is 11.8-.9". That doesnt appear to be a 2" difference.

    I still vastly prefer doragons re-envisioned design, but this is nice for those who don't like him.

    This one wins for the sculpt alone. That face is actually really nice. They really nailed the aesthetic.

    Robotwise I think Mega Doragon is gonna appeal to a lot more people. But the dragon mode suffers from one too many propertion issues (may or may not be due the zoids-ish design of it).

    I've just misured my Beast Gorira and he's 25 cm tall (I've posed him in the same stance of the image above...in a perfectly stright stand position he's 26cm). If Megatron is gonna be 30 cm, then the size comparison I've done should be correct.

    Yes, I know that size chart very well, and looking at the last version of it it seems like TM2 Megatron should be around 35cm to be perfectly in scale.

    Awesome design, better than the PE one. Now, will they be able to execute?

    This guy does not look very impressive to me. It kind of looks simplistic, or kind of like an up-scaled voyager toy. Maybe the colored and painted prototype will make it look better. The grinning face is also a step down from the PE one.

    Theyve worked with other third party companies, but this is the first figure released in this line.

    He has thighs! -That always annoyed me about the original toy and show. His transport mode making his legs so clunky. But i love the tire knees and asymmetry so i was unsatisfied with the PE version

    Im surprised the Transmetal gimmick that makes him into the Dragon Wagon hasnt been discarded at this point XD.  But i guess the wheels are a nice touch

    I think I'm a little more into the updated look/sleekness of PE's version but this is still very impressive. They absolutely nailed the sculpt in terms of accuracy.
