    I took some pictures of G1 Megatron with a 1:1 Walther P38 BB gun and MP Prime.
    I also tried to "guess" the size of the MP gun mode. It's a cheap mock-up, but you'll get the idea (I hope):

    The G1 toy is about 25% smaller than a Walther P38, and if my guess is right, MP Megatron will be about 25% bigger than the Walther P38.

    Thanks. This might be it. If you guessed the ratio and Takomy deliver us something similar, then I don't see any problem to be worried about.

    Thats still tiny, way smaller than even MP Starscream. Megatron gun-mode should just be huge.... then it would feel like you're roleplaying with an actual megatron as he'd appear in the cartoon :)

    I sure hope for the bot mode to be like in the series, otherwise, what is the point in the MP line ?

    To make a few bucks for Takara-Tomy. Same as always.

    Anyhoo, that seems like a decent size for him. The trigger position is a bit awkward, but at least you'd still be able to hold it like a real gun. The "robot mode" seems shorter than Prime at first, but a few pull-out parts (feet, upper legs) should remedy that. I just hope Takara can manage to give the legs some bulk without sacrificing the gun mode too much.

    the extra parts make it a rifle :p 

    as for the bulk, if anemis could do what he did, I'd like to think that Takara's engineers and resources can pull off what you seek.

    hmmm, even at +25% its gonna miss the bulk we have gotten used to over the years. i still look forward to the preview pics though, when they get around to showing us.

    i think around 40% bigger than a real p38 would be better.

    very cool of you to put those pics together though!
    very nice to have some visual comparison to see exactly what sizes could look like.

    still biting my nails in a pre-joygasm fit!
    trying not to keep my hopes TOO high though. its hard to do!!!!

    Here's what I'm worry about:
    Takara making a complete Megatron for MP-06, so that would be Megatron, with the add-on silencer and shoulder extension. Won't that be a kick in the lugnutz. :throw

    I really don't think Takara will be doing more "perfect editions" to any of their masterpieces, and I'm not sure where all this paranoia is coming from. It only happened with Prime because the fan outcry for a trailer was so immense. But I bet when they made MP-01, they really thought that would suffice. I mean, as much as I also wanted a trailer for him, I was still fine that he didn't come with one. Where the other MP's are concerned, I truly believe they are final editions, save for some hopeful Seeker repaints.

    I think it will happen again, but this time with a cartoon color corrected Screamer.

    For me, I would prefer that the barrel can be adjusted to be at Megatron's side or back just like the G1 toy.

    I think most folks would mind the oversized gun mode as long as it looks "realistic" and more importantly the robot mode looks er, awesome? :D 

    IACON, I'm suprised that TakaraTomy hasn't given us "anime accurate" Starscream or the other seekers - especially Thundercracker and Skywarp.
