    Heya, Dark Galvatron here once again, with another review on yet another KO figure for the Transformers line. Today, this is an interesting figure, and its the Transmetal 2 Megatron dragon figure. Here are the pics...

    The Grey Version, which I have named "Galvatron"

    Now, onto the review:
    From what I can see in beast mode, this KO seems to retain almost all of Megatron's physical features without any slight alterations of any kind. Though I've never owned Transmetal 2 Megatron, there were times that I wanted one, but due to my ex stepfather and his belief that dragons are of the devil, sadly, I never got one. Thankfully, Mom came through for me with both versions. Back on topic, the red dragon seems to be very nicely done with a bit of a metallic pink sprayed on the head and abdomen area, but at the same time, missing some paint on the wings and the tail. Moving along, this figure sports the "Deploying Wings" gimmick, both in beast and robot modes, as does the grey dragon. The only thing that this toy lacks is the thrashing dragon neck feature and firing missiles. Also, it can be converted into "Vehicle Mode" for both figures, but I chose to skip Vehicle Mode.

    Now onto robot mode. In my own view, the red version seems to be a more show accurate figure, with the orange visor and all. Then you have Galvatron who is very nicely done as well. According to what I was looking over however, the original mold for Transmetal 2 Megatron even had a cockpit inside of the orange ball/dome in his chest. Also, some people that I've shown the pics of Galvatron to have said that he looks fairly reminiscant to Cryotek. On another note, the reason I chose to call this grey figure Galvatron, is because it actually fits, since all the other Megatrons lately just change colors to become Galvatrons. But this is the review on both figures, so hope you enjoy!

    Those are pretty cool. Mind if I ask where you got them? And were they expensive?

    They are. The quality is actually quite impressive. And like I said, they even have the alternate vehicle mode.

    I got the dark green/black one at Big Lots around Thanksgiving. I like it alot. And it's from the same knockoff line as my clockless Heinrad and yellow sparkly Lioconvoy.

    Even though I've never owned one, yes, they are. They are the same size, since I have seen the original in both robot and beast modes before.
