    I've said it before and I'll say it again. This would make an awesome Galvatron kitbash.

    I haven't bought any of the animated stuff, but I got to say this repaint may coax me into buying this one. Just a very cool color scheme imo.

    Straight up Re-paints are lame. As cool as this looks. Still just lame. Maybe with a few different mods, but not the same fig.

    Hopefully Hasbro will actually spend enough money on the right type of paint so it just does not smudge right off like the first version.

    Of course, that will not happen, and we will be treated to a craptacular paint job yet once again.

    Ugh.

    That's what I'm hoping. I'm digging the new colors, and the toy finally spouting "Transform and Rise Up" will be icing on the cake.

    Best repaint of the year IMO. I've tried to stay away from the Animated toys but this is very tempting...

    I got the original and was a little disappointed with the mold. The shoulders don't stay in very well, no button to spin the propellers, bold legged stance, and too much crap on his back. Not to mention a very weak looking helicoptor mode.

    He does look good in this paint scheme though. Just don't get too excited about the mold. I think leader Bulkhead is a way better mold.

    I'm not a big fan of the blue goatee, would have been nicer black.

    His colors kinda remind me of Universe Storm Cloud...

    That IS a nice looking figure, and is definitely classy and striking. And it is great for folks who collect black repaints. But me, I'm fairly content with my original Megatron. I'll often pick up deluxe or even voyager-scaled repaints without blinking, but a leader-class repaint is a harder sell. I think I'll be skipping this one.

    I've got the original figure and the biggest problem with it is easily the legs. It looks like he has to pee but can't find a bathroom. The knees are way too close together, and even when you split his legs for a pose it looks like his legs are buckling. Otherwise it's pretty solid.

    These Leader class repaints, this one and that ugly, ugly ass Ultra Magnus, are such a complete and utter waste. Hasbro wasted their time and resources on these things, instead of doing a proper Leader class Lugnut instead.

    Colors are nice imo, but yeah it is too bad they're milking the molds already - but hey, it should be expected with Transformers/Hasbro, and we don't have to buy em

    I think it looks HAWT.
    Leader Megatron is by far my favorite Animated toy.
    The leader class is kind of pricey for repaints, but if they have him say "Transform and rise up!" I have a feeling that $40 will vanish from my wallet.

    so so beautiful! I'm just glad this a general release. If it were a LD or convention exclusive then I'd still have to buy it! I just think the possible animated nemesis prime, animated black grimlock (and hopefully black animated ultra magnus) are going to convention exclusives. Either way, Shadow Megs is going straight into the Black Detolf.
