    So I got a somewhat-surprise bonus at work today and I'm thinking about picking up the IT version of Megs. Is there anyone who still has the first release with the bonus cannon and Kremzeks for sale? I remember seeing some posts about bestgrey still having them, but I haven't had a chance to look him up (I'm assuming he's a seller on ebay?). Is there anyone else?

    They eyes aren't painted plus I prefer the paint of TT MP36. I'm guessing its a mental thing. There is just something about MP36 that really draws me in.

    Here are a few pix of my original MP36 TT before I sold him:

    No, I pried off the face and eyes and sprayed silver, and redid the black. Not recommended for the inexperienced - the pieces are glued in well.

    IT probably still. Though the finish on THF is nice. Can't really go wrong with either. IT wins based on fit and finish by a small margin.

    The IT megs is a very different color than the Takara or ko Mp36. It is a very flat toon grey vs. Takara/KO is more steel metallic.

    Both are very nice.

    I know alot of folks are all obsessed with getting an IT Megs. I think it's nice and all but it's not like it crazy superior to all of the different versions.

    This just came in, ordered from eBay seller chb_lzhw678-8 on March 3rd using eBay flash sale. Super fast shipping and great packaging (in pre cut Styrofoam w box corner protectors). Mine came w the extra canon and goodies, and the batteries were already installed. Only prob w the figure is that the left heel piece is floppy, like previously mentioned by others.

    TF-Robots too. First order there and I'm not sure there will be more in the future thanks to this delay.

    I think it's high time somebody did a thorough comparison review of IT-01 and THF-03 Megatrons with detailed pictures. (kudos to Bots&Bits and ToyDojo for their videos, but they aren't enough to make decision)

    Anyone think There will be another KO coming? I heard rumors of some that were in the works, but its seems its been so long, and so many others have already released that I'm not sure if anyone will actually be produced or not.

    IDK, what do you guys think?

    Not to rain on your parade, mate, but I already mentioned that youtube videos are not sufficient enough to make a definitive decision. They spend too little time showcasing the differences, IMO.

    Yup. There will be more.

    In addition to It, THF, and KO Takara box, there is also the Magten (silver paint red legs), and gold version.

    For sure I would bet on other versions to come...
