    Yeah, I can see an argument for TT for sure, I guess for me, half the reason I bought the Hasbro version was for those rad swords :D  I'm a sucker for clear yellow, lightning-ish weapons, especially swords.

    I also like the red shoulder accents on the Hasbro version, that's a pretty nice touch.

    Pre-ordered all three Legends for now, don't know which I will keep.

    The Clones are must haves I think, I really like those beast modes.

    I love G2 Megatron's wacky color-scheme (the neon blue tank treads are so cool!) but that mold is just undeniably Blitzwing... and all that gray in robot mode is a bit of an eyesore, especially since some parts are painted silver but most are not. Still a very good looking figure though, so maybe I just buy both Blitzwing and G2 Megatron.

    Windblade... man. I did not want to buy another Windblade, as I have the previous Legends-one already, but the Generations mold is really not all that good. True, this new one is simple as all hell but maybe that's not too bad considering how I don’t really like transforming the old one. And I kinda dig the idea of her being a Headmaster - I always think about how it would’ve been if she just appeared in the Japanese Headmasters cartoon like that. Also the Targetmaster, while not belonging to her, has cool, matching colors and the robot he does belong to isn't made yet, so... he'll be her partner for the time being.

    Yeah I guess I'll buy this one and let her be Japanese G1 Windblade and the other one gets to be my G1 IDW Windblade.

    The jet mode is significantly different.

    I'm guessing the red and the blue will be different too. As Hasbro's red is a bit subdued, and I think Takara's will be more vibrant. The metallic blue paint will likely stand out a lot more on Takara's, as it blends in to the head on Hasbro's.

    Probably because they didn't plan well. Waiting like they did didn't leave much room before POTP.

    I had to preorder Legends TM Windblade. I wanted to like the Generations/Legends version but the face is really ugly. This one looks more like the comics. I also figured if I was going to pay above retail anyway (I like BBTS and understand why their pricing changed but I'm not going to subsidize other peoples' flat shipping if I can help it), I may as well go all the way and get one with painted details and a targetmaster.

    When I get Archforce, I'm going to probably get another gun from Shapeways/another TRs Megatron and add blue missile tips to both of them. After that and perhaps a custom shoulder gun, some orange paint details and a few Reprolabels, he'll be ready.

    Since I really like the Decepticon Clones here, I'll have to get the Autobots from Takara too.

    G2 Megatron looks good here too... :confused:  Halp.

    Windblade comes with Pinpointer... oh... darn. RIP

    I don't think a custom gun is really required. I think the cannon looks fine next to his head.

    I always liked to think the United Megatron was Archforce, cause he looks the most different. But that's just my head canon

    I'm really glad I pre-ordered the Clone Bots from AmiAmi last weekend. The Clone Trons will complement them quite nicely. Targetmaster Windblade doesn't look much different from Hasbro's toy and is only for TM fanatics. Hero Megatron with Savage Noble is a nice homage, but I think MP Megatron covers all my Megsy needs until the end of time.

    LG G2 Megatron can be a tank and jet and a gun. He just needs a car then he would have all the alt modes Megatron has ever had in one toy.

    I was hoping for a proper Voyager G2 Megatron but I think that I prefer the more vibrant colour scheme of the Deluxe, I would have gotten that one a while ago if it wasn't because is too short and I've heard really bad things about the mould.

    The mold is not bad but it wore out really fast, and by the time Takara got to doing "Thunder" Megatron he had some problems with parts falling off and not fitting together just right. My only gripe with the toy is the spinning arm.
