    I'm looking around for a G1 Megatron, preferably the one that turns into a gun.


    I'm looking around BBTS and they have alot of Megatron figures, which one would you guys recommend?

    Encore reissue. it's going to be the cheapest if you can find it.

    Go for the Encore reissue. They've also released G1 Optimus Prime, the one that turns into a red truck.

    oh, no it's not. the quality is actually rather bad, with most being broken in the package. the bullet-launching assembly on most are bent inside the body straight from the factory, which requires you to push the back of the upper body down first in order to fit the internal parts around the bent part. it's well documented in the feedback forum.

    you can find easily the encore reissue? :lol  been hunting on ebay and they are hard to come by, most are bids and usually go for over my price range, only recently did one come in my price range, sadly i didn't have the money at the time

    IMHO, the Takara Box reissue Megatron with the mace accessory is the best. Get it while you can...

    I have the encore megatron,i love the fact that he shoots bullets,but the qc is pretty bad,actually while transforming him the other day the whole chest piece popped right out(but it does snap right back in),the megatrons i had back in 1984-87,no matter how bad they were abused,never had the chest snap off,even when i tried lol.still i am glad i have the encore,but thats just speaking as an adult trying to get the whole 1984 line-up for display,if i was a kid trying to actually have battles with them or something,i would be pissed

    Get whichever Takara reissue you can find the cheapest (Encore or Takara Collection). The Masterpiece one also is quite nice (though good luck transforming it into gun mode).

    Thats the 2nd time in this thread I'm hearing of the QC issues. Mine is absolutely perfect. Not one flaw in it at all. I guess I got lucky. Mine fires correctly and has been transformed more than enough times to show any problems if it had any. -- encore version --
