    Yeah, the space gun is my only complaint about the figure but that fan-mode for the hover tank actually looks pretty good in hand. I think it looks better than the WfC/FoC Megatron tank, tbh.

    I'm going to see if I can get that trigger knee pad off of him.

    Daaaaaaaaaang, I feel like I've read posts from you about the wait for eons :p 

    You'll love him. He's perfect. I'm so in love with the Cross Dimension line. I have Striker Manus and a ToyWorld Orion and while I usually gravitate towards IDW designs (though MTMTE designs a little less so) but I don't need two CHUG Optimus Primes in my display.

    One will become a deskbot at work... but who?

    He's glorious! My definitive chug Megatron. If Planet X does a WFC Megatron though they will have to share lol. Rioter looks mean as fuck. The detail on this guy. Yo this is how he should have looked in the bey movie.

    On a scale of 1-10, this dude's an 11.

    Best 80$ Ive spent on a 3rd party, he feels like a $120 fig.
    Can't believe I paid $100 for sunsurge, and $20 less for this slightly above voyager sized Megatron.

    Gun mode's is tight in all areas, I feel like Bladerunner or someone when holding it.

    Bot mode smokes any Megatron Ive ever had. Someone ship one if these to Bay, hopefully he'll take notes.

    If you're on the fence, DO IT! Promise you won't regret it.

    Imagine if the movie toys were like the CD line....we might have lost a lot of steam for the third party focusing on G1 because the movie toys would finally be worth masterpiecing and so many collectors like us would be sucked into the movie-verse

    I still want a gun mode accessory made of this guy for other bots to hold.

    Hopefully MT will add one into a future figure's accessories.

    I would pay a surprising amount for a 5mm compatible version of this guy. I already have 1 of G1 Megs that I paid about $20 for. Can't remember its name though, but I got it off BBTS.

    Honestly, my only complaint about this figure are the ankle tilts. After Manus, I would've appreciated deeper ankle tilts on Rioter. Small issue on an otherwise fantastic figure. And can't complain for $80.

    Overall, I feel Rioter was a backwards step in articulation. Less foot and ankle articulation, the lack of hinged hands, and no butterfly joints for the shoulders; but I still feel the design and charisma of this figures makes him my favorite of the 2 still. He truly is the best CHUG Megatron, an amazing figure, and I honestly don't see him being dethroned.

    I hope that MT would include a mini gun mode Rioter in scale for the other to hold in with the Cross Dimensions Starscream

    He definitely can't hit some of the poses Striker Manus can. I bought the KO throne for him and I had Manus keep it warm for Rioter while he was stuck in my stash waiting to be shipped. Rioter just can't sit as well due to reduced articulation. It is a small price to pay as he is still better than anything else I have.

    He's a tall Voyager. They stand a little over current figures like Galvatron.
