    Spot on is relative. I played the game and I didn't get that feeling when he was first rebuilt by Soundwave and even afterwards. The images online though do sometime show him with a small head :(  Oh well, I'll wait till this gets discounted just like their OP.

    I actually contacted with them about that, they said they had no plans about it.



    Yet.

    I kinda disagree. As much as I love TF Prime, I'd rather they continue doing figures for FOC characters. After that, they should do figures of some movie characters like DOTM Megatron or AOE Lockdown.

    I'm glad they have such a strong focus on what they want to do, almost every other company flits from one line to another and it gets annoying. And there are still so many game characters that need a figure that there's no need to move onto something else, as much as I like TF Prime.

    They need to do something about those super exposed ball joints on the hips. I'll wait for an eBay flash sale and get this for $70 just like I did for Jupiter

    Back when WfC came out, I never found the Megatron design to be particularly remarkable. Fred Tatasciore did a great job voicing him, but this is one of those times where the voice acting pinned this character down for me as 'Generic Cartoon Badguy'.
    I'm in the same boat as the others who find this design kind of boring. I'd be more apt to believe he was a generic thug than Megatron. I also find that their version of the Deluxe toys don't scale as nicely with Genesis and Apocalypse to my eye. To each their own, though.

    Planet X's big thing for me is transformations. I've liked how clever they've been since Genesis even if I haven't picked up anything but their citybots and dinobots. I'm really interested in the reviews that come out for Pluto. Otherwise, as a practical matter am I the only on that gets a little tired of stabbing themselves on Planet X's super sharp toys?

    I unwittingly poked myself many times when transforming Qurinus, I think he's the worst offender. However, I find it impressive that the sharp parts are so incredibly strong.

    Damn that's good....I mean, I love the official FOC Megatron figure, but the hands are better on this one + it's larger, so this'll be a nice go-to FOC Megs replacement. ^_^

    You're reffering to the WFC Megatron right?

    There was never an official FOC Megatron from Hasbro.

    This is the same thing I've heard through TCP, so seems legit. Fortunately PX could focus on FOC characters for quite awhile and not exhaust the cast, especially when you also include designs not seen in the game but that did show up in the 'art of' book. I'm still hoping they do Springer as he was one of my favorite 'unseen' designs, but I'll leave it to PX to do what they do best and to know their business.

    I'm excited for all of Planet X's upcoming figures. Not that I mind, since it gives me time to save up, but I wonder how long it will take for them to get through the Insecticons. Does anyone remember how long it took them to finish the Dinobots?

    That's not a fair comparison cuz swoop was made as a solo piece to accompany hasbro's grimlock,so technically they were done after the him.Only after months of badgering pX to finish the dinobots did they follow up with neptune(sludge) and then the others.If i recall swoop(caelus) was released in either 2011 or 2012 and grimlock(vulcan),the last of the five,was released at the end of 2015,some stores got it only at 1/3 through 2016 like tfsource but i rest my case.So 4 years max?

    That's the second thing in this thread you've said that I've agreed with. I may have to go wash myself now.

    I haven't owned a Planet X figure, but I am so beyond impressed that they have kept going with this!! Beyond tempted to jump on collecting this line. Their 5 seekers have me tempted :)  at this point I'm curious to see if they'd do Cyclonus from the Nintendo DS game :)
