    Unpackaged sample, sometimes unpainted, sometimes fully painted, like this one.

    Something stolen (or "leaked") from a Chinese factory and sold on eBay.

    The mold is growing on me, but is going to need a heavy dose of paint all around.

    (HA! I typoed and at first it read "he is going to need heavy dose of pain")

    Sweetness. If it weren't for bills and stuff this week I'd bid on that myself.

    And it seems that Hasbro HAS forgotten how to paint this properly like in the promo pics released online (I speak of the eyebrow).

    Still, it's great to see the mold at multiple angles - only reinforces my belief that it IS one of the best G1-esque transforming Megatrons to date.

    Ah, bugger. The wings are held on with pins. I'dbeen hoping they were on some kind of ball joint so they could be easily removed and reattached. :( 

    The colors are growing on me. Especially if the trigger and wing clips stay gray and not orange. The front of the barrel and scope are still getting a fresh coat of paint when I get mine, but I'm tempted to leave the purple (largely because it would take a lot of work to get rid of it all). I'd love to change the green, too, but I don't know how to change the color of translucent plastic without making it opaque.

    Yeah - the paint job isn't actually THAT bad in person...

    I'm ready to say "Screw Translucent Plastic" though in my pursuit of a G1-accurate Megatron. Beast Wars never had the stuff for eyes, and those toys look just fine. Same with Alternators.

    Love the mold, but I would have rather the purple parts been another color like grey...

    Eeeeeeeh, I'm liking the mold, but the colours irritate me. I might buy one and try and respray it.

    Hmm.
