    Not even sure if this counts as news, but I didn't see this on BBTS yesterday, so who knows.

    I'm a bit confused: is it the old Justitoys set but this time with the orange tip for the silencer ?

    The previous one had the yellow tip indeed...

    Either way this is great news. I've been looking for this set for awhile for a reasonable price and from a trustworthy seller. BBTS fills both roles perfectly.

    looks like just a reissue of Justitoys assessory set to conincide with reissue of MP Megatron.

    It's the same set from when Megs 1st came out by JustiToys. I have it and it really adds a lot to Megs. The die-cast additions to his legs help with stability.

    Good to see this one come back round again...after market prices have been getting high.

    If you have Mp Megatron you NEED this.

    Who could resist a nearly 2.5 foot long plastic gun that turns into a robot?

    (Pchoo pchoo!)

    Neat-o. I'm more curious as to whether Horror Monarch (PP-02, I think) will still be coming out. That's the perfect Megatron toy, in my eyes; turns into the right size gun, nearly to scale with Classics.. I never picked up the proper MP due to his size..

    Hold up a second. I know this set from the original release but this is the first I am hearing about shoulder and leg enhancements.

    Anyone have more info on this or pictures?

    Thanx

    There's no shoulder enhancement. I meant the pieces attached to back of gun to be placed against your own shoulder to stabilize the gun when shooting it. I guess that's what it's for. There is leg enhancement though. It's the exact same leg piece but made of metal so is heavier so Meg can be more stable when standing.

    Imagine the leg panels with flared tabs for the extension, ala the original, and a slightly matt/power coat finish, and that's it.

    This is good. You should pick it up if you haven't already.

    The listing makes it a point to say "ONLY the silencer and stock are included" and then goes on about how his robot mode is complemented.

    It says nothing about leg panels or attaching to gun mode. Are we SURE this one has the panels?

    The stock is fairly useless without the flared tabs to attach it to.

    I know - but the listing seems to make the point that they aren't included.

    I emailed them and asked, hope to hear from them shortly.

    Proof that I'm a crazy fan....

    I just pre-ordered this even though I'm more or less planning on selling my MP Megs anyway...

    Maybe this will make me want to keep him..

    Preordered. I had the original in my cart several times when it first came out but always changed my mind. Now I regret that, so this is great news for me :thumb

    ^ it's best to be sure.


    It just makes the Alt mode seem so much more complete.

    You won't loose any money on it anyway.

    But sell MP Megatron? Really? Everytime i take it out of the box...look at the scowl on his face, and fall in love with it again.

    In fairness I haven't opened him in a while, and was quite in love with hm when I first got him. The huge clunky scale is what makes me a little "meh" on him, but the upgrades may make me fall back in love :)
