    I'm thinking about getting the MP5 Upgrade package for Masterpiece Megatron. I know, I'm late into the game, but for years I've successfully avoided getting the set as I've never really found a good place to display him.

    I still haven't found that place, but am curious: to those who have the upgrade set, is it any good after all these years? And do you display it attached in gun mode, or as the gun station with a robot mode Megatron?

    And lastly, how *do* you display the long alt. mode properly? Would it not be at an angle? Did you clear shelf-space, or is it out in the open? Any pictures?

    I'm a little torn on this. Should I get it? Should I not? Help me decide!

    PS: Does the plug remove easily, for those who got modified versions?

    Well I dont have the upgrade kit, but I think MP Megatron should only be displayed in Bot mode.
    I had my TFC #6 Megatron in gun form sitting just in front of MP and the TFC box sitting behind them.

    I dont have pics, cause I'm boxing everything up for my relocation.

    I have Megs in Bot mode with the attachment in cannon mode behind him in. My display case really doesn't have space for it, but I got it in there at a wierd angle. Oh, the upgrade plug came out really easy on mine.

    I ended up getting a second MP Megs to display mine with it attached in alt mode. It's a damn good quality kit, it even adds a little more die-cast to Megs.
