    Why would that rain on my parade? You said B&B and TD's videos didnt help so, i linked you to another. The differences are paint, diecast, ratchets, cannons, accessories and plastic quality. The IT clearly wins in all ways but paint.

    Buy all four and compare. It's all subjective.

    Yeah, the consensus around here is that IT (which I don't have) is the overall superior product, except for the loose untabbing heel that some have mentioned. But I can also say that THF feels better to me in most every way compared to my MP-36. THF also has a better cannon than the rest and the toy parts if that matters to you. So, pick your favorite paint job, and make that your first purchase.

    If you are ok with quality close to MP-36 but really want a true silver finish with red legs, get the Magten.

    So I bought the first KO, and while it's pretty dang good, it has a few flaws. The feet are a little wobbly, the grey back barrel just swings loose with nothing to tab into, and the chest plate doesn't like to sit straight.

    I'm thinking of switching to another KO. The THF is silver, has the emblem, but no backplate.

    The IT is flat, cartoon gray, no emblem, has a backplate, and a Kremzeek or two? I think those are the main differences.

    Here's my big question. Which one has the best bot mode joints?
    Are there any really loose parts on either of these?

    Is there anyone with THF that wants to sell their cannon? I have IT megs coming but the THF cannon blows away all the others. I still don't get why there weren't more movie quotes in any of the cannons. So many great ones to choose from. "I'll rip out your optics", "why throw away your life so recklessly", "I still function", "you're a fool, starscream" , "heroic nonsense" . Now I gotta go watch the movie again.

    Just got it megs. Figure looks great but I have not had a chance to fiddle with it yet. This might sound crazy but I also have open and play big cannon arriving any day now and I prefer to handle galvatron before I mess with IT. I know big cannon isn't masterpiece quality, but if I played around with it megs first, I may feel disappointed with big cannon.
    Anyway, both it fusion cannons don't work because they forgot to put the batteries in:confused: . I know it has been mentioned in this thread before but what type of batteries do they require?

    IT is solid. I purchased 2, but later sold those in lieu of going with official Mp36. To me there is something very special about TT Megatron. The face, color, contrasting hues between the legs, chest, the jewels, etc. I felt the face is a little lacking on the IT, but other than that he's awesome. Definitely a superior product vs TT as far as joints, ratchets, paint wear go. You can't go wrong with him. Plus you get 2 cannons and 3 kremzeeks if you care about that thing. I added waterslides to my It's and they looked awesome.

    To me mp36 is megatron. Maybe bc I had him first who knows. Looks are subjective. 20180303_102405.jpg 20180303_102330.jpg Screenshot_20180313-134135.jpg Screenshot_20180313-134130.jpg Screenshot_20180313-134125.jpg

    Good luck in your decision.

    The higher build quality/die cast, more accessories, back plate cover, and much lower pricing of IT made my decision very easy.

    Seconded.

    I have MP-36 and THF Dynastron. I don't have IT, so I can't really give meaningful feedback about it. I chose THF over the IT because they both seem like great products and the deciding factor was the coloring. I decided I liked THF's shiny gunmetal grey more than the matte grey.

    I totally agree with you.

    IT is the superior product no doubt. Far exceeds what your get from TT as far as pricing goes along with everything else IT has to offer. But, there was something missing for me.
    The face was slightly off and there was something that I missed about having TT MP36.
    I guess its like when you date someone for a long time and then break up.
    You meet a hotter chick that is better than your ex, but she isn't your ex and you miss that.

    Dynastron flaunting his curly chest hair in front of my (modded) TT MP-36. I also painted the tops and outside of his feet silver to match his face.

    For those who care, the actual body paint difference between the THF and TT can be seen in their thighs, belly, shoulder "hammers", and gun barrel.

    Received IT Megs today from shxfg_bo7766_0. From the first release with the English cannon, extra kremzeek and backplate. $79 during the last flash sale.

    The seller has 100% feedback.
