    They said it couldn't be done....

    Do want, but I bet it'll cost more than an actual Masterpiece Megs.

    Same. But not for more than the price of the full sized MP Megs.

    Now they're just taking the mickey. I see a Hasbro legal crackdown coming, aimed at all the fan kit makers because of these jokers.

    New figures of pre-existing characters I can handle (Like Defender), but this is just plain down right bad

    I really want to see Hasbro crack down on this, isn't it Copyright or something ?

    So it's basically a smaller version of a figure that I hate and not even because of the size?

    Pass.

    If this can be released without ,

    A) Feeling the wrath of the Hasbro/Takara legal department
    B) The balance & fragility problems that plague the official one

    Then I'll buy one. If the official license holders can't do the job right and someone like iGear can then I have no qualms about going the unofficial route.

    They took one of the most difficult Transformers to transform and made it smaller?

    No thanks, I'm stressed out enough as it is

    If all the MPs had been the same size to start with this would be a none-issue. As is, this and mini-MP Prime will be mine. :) 

    In terms of copyright this isn't an Hasbro mould, it's a Takara one. Maybe in Japan things are a bit more chilled.

    Oh, and notice that the scope looks smaller on this in relation to the figure. A shame as I liked the BFG appeal on the MP.

    Did they decrease the size/scale of his fusion cannon/scope??? If so, that puts this in "possibly buy" territory for me. I HATE Masterpiece Megatron, mostly for his frustrating transformation, but also for his way too big cannon... but If this little guy fixes that scale problem, I may be tempted to bite. I dunno. I still don't like supporting blatant KOs, though. And I would probably never attempt to transform this figure, since there's no way a smaller version would be less fragile than the POS standing on my shelf now.

    I agree no way any of the US based online stores will touch this, how hasbro hasn't stepped in already is beyond me, surely they must know about the these KOs

    I'd buy it if:
    -it costs proportionately less than MP Megatron did. Which I doubt. I expect it to cost more because "it's a limited run collectible toy by fans for fans blah blah blah".
    -it actually ever gets as far as production. Which I doubt. These companies are just BEGGING to get shut down by doing things like this.
