    Is it just me or does he suck royally? More specifically, right out of the package his arms were detached from his body. Additionally, the part of his arms that slide down when converting from tank to robot mode were so loose it made it so his arms would NOT pose in anyway, and his legs were just as bad. Is it just mine? Did I get a lemon? Or are they all this crappy?

    Yes, he is a crappy figure in terms of play quality, but I like him.

    No, it's not just you. Yes, he does suck royally. Yes, his forearm pieces are ridiculously loose, and do not pose easily. And, yes, his legs are just as bad, if not worse.

    Optimus is pretty cool, though, if not extremely floppy.

    Megs at $4.99 is not a bad deal, despite him being crappy. I am hoping he can turn into a good kitbash project.

    Megatron is an excellent display piece. Nothing more.

    I don't even think he's good for display. He can barely stand up on the stand that came with him, unless you keep him in tank mode 100% of the time.

    I'm happy that i waited to hear some reviews before deciding on not buying these dudes. I hope that the future 6 inchers are better quality than these guys are. The more crappy toys out, the more money in my wallet.

    Dude, where the hell did you pick one up for that price?!? I might have to return the one I have and pick one up for that price instead. Might make it more worth it...maybe...

    Targets all over have been selling these at $4.99, but some are catching on to the error.

    Some Targets mistakenly charged the 3" price for the 6" figures.


    Edit: Doh too slow...

    So I assume you are going to return him to the store or give him away to someone who might appreciate it more.

    At $4.99, he's decent. He's sort of amusing when you wave him around with his arms up and yell "YAAAAAY!" like Special Ed.

    Yeah he's pretty crappy. I put mine back in the box and don't really plan on taking him out again.

    What's up with the 3" Megatron that's supposed to be "G1"?
    I don't remember that design for Megatron.

    Sorry this is a little off-topic but I couldn't find another thread about it anywhere else.

    I'm not sure which one you mean. There's one that is based on his Cybertron appearance and one from Beast Wars.
    If you include the 6 inch ones, you've got one from a GI Joe crossover and a War Within version.

    He's definatly one of the worst Transformers ever on my list. At least they're making up for it with a Titanium War Within Megatron.
