In the era of Takara Megatron this guy's still a strong contender, imho.
Agreed, he is still one of my favorite figures and is my MP Megs!
I'm thinking this beefy Optimus by MS Toys might look good with our Despo
Despotron kicks the TT one's ass, forget contender. That thing looks so derpy with its huge black diapers and squished upper torso.
Despotron remains my MP Megatron. It will take one helluva a new figure to replace him.
So happy to see this guy still gets some love. He’s my MP Megs too. The TT is undeniably an impressive figure but is just too toony. I always thought Despotron, with his more intimidating and menacing build, captured the feel of the character more.
Has anyone tried to use the ModFans Fusion Cannon with Despotron? One of my small nitpicks (other than the helmet not being G1 toon enough) with Despo is that his fusion cannon is too large. I think the ModFans fusion cannon would be the perfect size but not sure how hard it would be to mod it to work with Despotron.
If someone figures it out I’d love to know. The mod was beyond my skill set.
I dare you to say that in the official mp 36 thread
Buddy I'm sure i have, probably when images first got released for mp36 and maybe a few times now and again when comparisons come up.
People can like whatever fig they want, but i can't stand when members start getting attacked just for having a stern view, just makes those attackers seem like babies.
Also, i say it and then leave it alone, I get not reigning on others' parades. Leave the feedback and move on, pretty much how I like to do things, even if that feedback is rough on some tender bums.
Well said. I have a similar rule- say it once and leave the thread. If I don’t like the fig then there’s really no reason for me to be in there repeatedly shitting on it. let them enjoy their shit, but I expect the courtesy be returned
But I see 4 people have liked your dare. Seems people are eager to see me drop that comment into the mp36 thread. Haha just randomly and out of context.
I am not a fan of "Old man Megs," he looks like a Scooby Doo villain to me and has no terrifying presence, unlike Despotron.
I really like MP-36, and it does have a lot of character and good looks. But Despotron captures what I envision to be what Megatron should look like. Buff, strong, large, and intimidating. And putting on KFC's hands for MP-10B just made him a whole lot better. This and Mightron are my MP Megatrons. MP-36 stands separately with MT Meteor and Lilacwave.
Man, I’m so happy to see so many folks feeling the same way about Despotron. I find everyone uses the word “menacing” to describe him. I couldn’t agree more.
I like my MP-36, but I love my Despotron. I did sell him once thinking I wouldn’t need him after getting MP-36, but regretted it immediately and bought another one right away. Lucky there was a sale for $75 on the MakeToys store.
He and the Reformatted Tyrantron are my two fav Megs.
I feel like this photo really brings out what wrong with mp36, shapewise.
Or it really brings out what's wrong with MP10, shapewise. Honestly, though, I think it's a little bit of both. Megatron's legs are definitely a bit too long, and his torso a bit too squat and narrow, but Optimus' lower legs are definitely too short, his arms too long, and arguably, his torso is just a tad too elongated as well.
As for Despotron, I really tried to like him, but he just doesn't do it for me. Having bought MP-36, and then almost immediately selling him because I just couldn't get past his shortcomings, I was hoping that Despotron would scratch the Megatron itch for me. After watching so many positive video reviews, I finally took the plunge, but the second I had him in hand, I knew he wasn't the one. I ended up settling on the IT-01 MP-36 KO, and am mostly satisfied with him. Not so much because I've changed my mind about his shortcomings, but they are much easier to swallow with a $90 figure than a $200 one. I'm still waiting for another 3rd party company to knock it out of the park with Megs.
I only thing really "wrong" with MP10 is the long arms, I wish KO makers would do the Shadowfisher arm set when they KO MP10, other then that, MP Megs is all kinds of wrong proportion wise. Despo corrects a ton of them and make Megatron menacing.
Despotron combined with a Mightron head is perfection to me, but the original head still gets a 9.5/10.
I dunno. The original head fits a lot more than someone else’s.
