    (Looks up Megasorry)...Ahhh, wow- that's pretty neat. ^_^

    I'm a little confused though- they have 2 names for this figure, I think: Megasorry and Tyrant.

    Megasorry's just the clear plastic/transparent version of Tyrant.

    Nice- I think I might pick him up too. ^_^

    Yeah, I think megasorry was the name of the clear one - glad you found what I meant.
    Tyrant was the standard release name.

    What's weird though, that I'd like to clarify, is the product pics of Tyrant VS the actual final product.

    In the product pics, he appears to have a silver paint job- but then the actual product appears to just be solid grey plastic (like TW Hegemon)- and I'd personally like just solid grey plastic.

    They didn't release a silver-painted version of him- did they? I wouldn't want to purchase that on accident.

    Update: Confirmed the standard release is just solid grey plastic- nice. ^_^

    He's gonna look awesome next to Soundboard. ^_^

    I wanna get:
    Mech Planet Soundboard (Soundblaster) (Ordered)
    Iron Factory Shadow Tengu (Sixshot)
    Iron Factory Blizzard (Blitzwing)
    Iron Factory Evil Lord (Overlord)
    Generation Toy Tyrant (Megatron) (Ordered)

    You put those up against Titan Class Fortress Maximus, and the scale will blow anyone away- and not only that, but they're all such amazingly designed and articulated little figures- it really shows how far design software and manufacturing resources has come, that they can make something so small, and also so posable- it's remarkable. ^_^

    Just got Soundboard and he looks really great. Better, IMHO than Soundwave. I think I prefer the cleaner looking gold paint app.

    I just love how he looks like he hopped out of the TV- they did such a beautiful job capturing his cartoon design in both modes.

    His robot mode is so darn good, it's nuts.

    Got HS05 today and like him a lot better than I thought I would (first experience with the mold). Only issues are with the articulation choices such as lack of arm swivel (elbow could have just been a ball joint) which prevents having his minion sit on his forearm across his body...sort of a classic pose. His thigh swivel could have also been designed better because it cuts into the side knee panels making the knee swivel a little awkward. If they wanted to go the extra mile, nothing really preventing them from giving him a waist swivel, but I'm more forgiving on that at this scale. The cut could have been lower towards his crotch like a lot of the Combiner Wars figures.

    Overall, worth about $20 (paid slightly less due to coupon) and looking forward to more stuff from them.

    He might get KO'ed, upscaled, and have extra joints added in the future- you never know. Something to sleep peacefully on. ^_^

    Same sentiments as everyone else. Love the scale, love what MechFanstoys are doing but Ankle & Bicep/elbow swivel are essential for me to keep buying them. Abcrunch would also be awesome, even ifit's really basic

    Really Curious as to whats next for these guys. Picked up Soundwave and Soundblaster because I wanted that Ratbat as he's my preferred spy.

    There's a 3rd soundwave coming that's lighter blue with alternate colored bird/bat and they're doing Ratchet and Ironhide (there's a thread for it somewhere)

    I saw that one the tapes don't do much for me at all. Wish they'd make some more Decepticons to go with him. That way they can be displayed with FT's Omega Supreme.

    I'm probably one of the few have no love for Ironhide, bring on the 1986 movie.

    The Ironhide looks good. I am hoping they find a way to sneak in a Ravage with future release. Maybe as a bonus with Ratchet.

    That would def. be cool. As simple as they are, we could get all the 4 legged ones eventually.
