    Eh, it's nice, but I adore my Despotron just the way he is. I think he pairs up with MP-10 the best out of the three 3P Megatron options, maybe even better than the official one. Granted, it would've been nice if Despotron came with something to hold with his hands.

    Has anyone else had an issue with the trigger spring being too loose? Were you able to fix it?

    With a name like G1TransformerMod, it's no surprise you were able to make some improvements to Despotron.
    I love Despotron, but those two mods you did are the two things I would change on him. Nice work.

    Add some guyliner and you have the perfect Megatron. If you can figure out a lower leg fix, provide the helmet, scope, and engineer a clip to use the Apollyon stock that is the ultimate 3P kit and you would have a lot of customers here. This is probably my favorite figure. I didn't know how much until I had him in hand. MT just annihilated this one. It has that well proportioned essence that none of the others ever have. I need to get the Eness hands and this set to make him complete.

    Thanks for offer, I'd like to find a way to makes these with a mold. FYI these are high detailed 3D prints, scope parts are 12hrs of print time, then some work on my part to drill screw holes and some finishing to make prototype.

    Thanks, thought it was a good name with my hobby of making parts for this and others.

    guys, after looking at the recent TT MP meg, i think it will disappoint me just like the way MP shockwave disappoint me. Now, i'm really tempted to get this figure but have not been following this thread. mind telling me if there is any issues with this figure that i should be aware of?

    Thanks in advance

    In gun mode, the barrel on mine isn't the straightest. It can drupe the slightest bit. Also you have to bang on some of the pins to get the lower legs tightened a bit so that they won't collapse. Look on Youtube and you will find fix it videos. It's really not that hard. Took me about five minutes. That long small panel that makes up the bottom of his chest can get scratched easily and looks to be a different color silver to the rest of his chest. Other than that, Despotron is pretty darn good. I imagine that the build quality of the TT will be good as well. However, that transformation is really complicated and looks fiddely to the point of not being enjoyable. I really would like to see a picture of Despotron next to Megatron 2.0. I feel Despotron looks a little too much like Megs on steroids, but TT looks like he retired and went to the old folks home. I really don't like all the panel lines, the dainty feet and the boney girl arms on that thing, but I won't be able to definitively tell until I see them side by side.

    Pretty sure TT megs, being an official figure, will be easier to sell down the track.

    Like most it was between the two, and I just love despotron's design / proportion better. Mine has no issues with his knees, and is a sturdy, intuitive figure. Love it.
