    Gunn not tannk

    It's hard to gauge an MP from a proto, especially since it isn't in color yet. I remember a lot of people not being thrilled at Inferno, then color pics changed a lot of minds. Could happen here, too.

    So yeah, I feel like the face sculpt being really nice is the greatest piece of evidence that this isn't a third party figure...

    It's definitely Takara. Slightly edges out Apollyon for me. Finally Megatron V2! About fucking time!

    This will be 2017, so maybe Galvatron in 2017 also. But very unlikely and most likely in 2018. I'm just waiting on Hound and Mirage, and Trailbreaker. And Takara's insecticons.

    Like I said before, this looks official right down to those details in the legs. Looks good so far, but I want to see color pics and closeups of the face.

    I'll still keep my Apollyon, but I'll just transfer him to my work desk. I have no problem having 2 Megatron figures in my MP collection.

    Yes, bring Hound and Mirage. And after seeing Bad Cube's Hoist and Trailbreaker, I really want see Takara handle Hoist. I have Sphinx, and love it, but I want an official and hopefully licensed Ligier, and I'm torn about it looking like Sphinx or having the shoulder wheels.

    Man, if ever there was a potential toy I wouldn't mind rehashing the same 7 hours of internet dialouge over, it'd be MP Megatron!

    Liampope, could please repost your quick comparisom with the shots from the movie? I loved looking at the proto side by side with the animation.

    I'm incredibly glad I didn't crack on Appolyon. Looks fantastic, although there are definitely some things that could be done better, as a whole, it offers a better package with fewer compromises than the third-party figures.

    I'm a little upset by the gun mode barrel, but I'm anticipating that will be fixed by the time of release. Probably a clearance issue. He also comes with the silencer and stock, so three cheers for the complete package!

    Even though I just bought Despotron, I think this guy looks great. I haven't decided if I'll buy the official yet, but if I can afford it I'd definitely buy both.

    To be honest, I expected something *spectacular* from Takara. This looks okay (and admittedly, it IS only a prototype), but I honestly don't think it's objectively better than any of the current or future third party options.

    I will get it because it's official - and to be clear, it's not terrible or anything, by any means. But I'm glad I will also have Apollyon. :)

    Ooooh burn. :D  Really surprised Meggy 2.0 didn't happen in the movie anniversary year, but that just means 2017 already has this, Grapple, and Dirge to look forward to. Oh, and Cheetor of course.

    I'm with you on this. I was expecting Takara to blow the competition away. I wanted to be forced to replace my Apollyon. To me this figure does some things right, but does some things wrong, too, and doesn't stand out all that much from other offerings.

    I'm just glad my source was correct so I can rely on him for future news. XTB's still looks better and will never go anywhere but if this one looks a bit better by release, I don't mind having two nice Megatrons.
