    He's a brilliant toy, and both decos looks fantastic; you won't be losing out whichever version you get.

    He's a great toy. The original is cool for being a very loving homage to the overall style of Super Megatron. Shadow Blade just takes the design and puts it into a cool night attack blackhawk copter rendition.

    Either one is excellent. If you can get a chance to look at them side by side, then you can decide which one appeals to you more. I'm afraid in this case there's not much that stands out one way or the other.

    Both are awesome, but I'd get the original because it's the 'real' Megatron. But the Shadow Blade paintjob is equally cool, so you can't really buy a wrong one.

    I bought the only version I saw which is the regular version.

    he's very fitting for my Final TF for this year (I'm starting up again in feb 2010)

    He looks sleeker without his Gun on so I keep it off.



    Oh yeah if anybody in the Fairfax VA area and you see a Toy that was marked down to 20 bucks.at the Kingsown TRU.they're going to try to make you pay the original price so you have to Haggle with them to bring it down to the price it said on the tag.

    Darn, it'll be nice if Bulkhead was that price too. He's the next thing I'm hunting, but I'm miles from Virginia.

    Anyhow, I'm glad you got him. In my opinion, the best thing about him is how solid he is. He feels very durable and strong.

    That's nice, my TRU has an almost empty Transformers aisle. You wonder if they even know what Transformers are.
