    This is not a joke.

    Megatron holds neighborhood in fear!

    The Winsdor Star has an article about a 3 hour stand off with heavy police forces and a man who pointed with a G1 Megatron.

    WINDSOR, Ont. -- A 25-year-old Windsor man who allegedly pointed a handgun at his neighbours was arrested on Wednesday after police officers surrounded his west end residence.

    The three-hour standoff forced the lockdown of a nearby elementary school, and drew a police response that included tactical officers, body armour, submachine guns, sniper rifles, a police dog and the mobile command centre.

    “We treat everything as real,” said Insp. Kirk Mason at the scene after the man had been taken into custody.

    “There will be a search of the premises and hopefully we’ll come up with whatever it is that he was waving out the window at his neighbours.”

    But the man’s friends accused police of overreacting, and said his supposed handgun was a toy.

    “It’s a Transformer,” said William Findley, 24. “It turns into a Luger. It’s an 80s-style Transformer... He’s had a really bad day. People are treating him like crap.”

    That just made me snicker. It's the reason the US release of MP Megs has that silly orange cap, like most toy guns.

    Same reason Nerf guns are made to look to completely unrealistic. The general populace is jumpy and paranoid, and the law enforcement follows suit.

    I am absolutely disgusted with this story. It illustrates everything that is wrong with the world today, and should sicken any decent, intelligent person. I mean for fuck's sake, Megatron is a Walther P38, not a Luger.

    I'm sure there will be more toy gun law restrictions on the way now.

    I wonder what they did with Megatron. Was it a Masterpiece, reissue, or the real deal?
