    Ok, ignoring prices, which of these is more "worth" the space they eat up?

    I keep reading people call the animated Leader Megatron the best toy of the character but I see the transformation and I find it very simple. Is MP Megatron so fugly/rusted?

    Thanks

    MP Megatron on any day. A beauty. Animated Megatron is just another toy, nothing special about it.

    If you're looking for something to constantly transform and fiddle with, go with Animated. If you just want pure awesomeness, go with Masterpiece.

    MP Megatron, with its die-cast parts and amazing articulation, not to mention faithful recreation of the classic Megatron look, over Animated any day of the week.

    MP Megatron. Animated is just a huge chunk of plastic with very little parts and is as simple as any scout class toy.

    Animated

    MP Megatron is possibly the most fragile thing since thin glass cups.

    Also the lamest sculpt since cavemen tried to represent their women.

    He's not fragile. You have to use excessive force to break him and/or not know what you're doing. Fragile would be G2 Pyro or TM Megatron with their stupid gold plastic parts that explode whenever you look at them wrong.

    If you want something just for display MP, if you want something to play with - Animated.

    MP Megatron is awesome. He's definitely one of my absolute favorites. Animated Megs isn't anywhere close. Great fig, but not in the top 10 or anything.

    Yours perhaps. Mine has survived two tumbles of the top of my bookshelf onto concrete floors without a scratch.

    My vote goes towards MP, but only if you have Mp Prime to go along with him.

    my vote goes to mp as well, i love animated megs, but the mp is fun to fiddle with due to the complexity of it, mine gets tf'd every week or so, and still looks/feels like new

    ^ This.

    However, MP Megatron has enough stability to be transformed back and forth as long as you're careful.

    Because of the high chance he'll become rare, I'd get the Masterpiece now, so you can say you have it, and get the Animated one later. You really should own both, they're worth the dough.

    Having both, I'd say Animated by far.

    I understand that masterpiece is not a toy per se, it's meant to be posed on a shelf and transformed with more finesse than your everyday toy, yet still it fails. The legs are flimsy and do the splits with little provocation and the right arm sags under the weight of the fusion cannon.

    Animated is sturdier and whilst not as high-end as Masterpiece, actually delivers more. I get many more poses that hold and fun by handling Animated rather than Masterpiece, who I STILL can't sell even for less than retail.

    MP Megatron is a royal pain in the butt to transform. It's both complex and there are a lot of pieces that take a lot of practice to line up right.

    Then again, Animated Megatron has the opposite problem.
