    I am considering purchasing reissue #6 Megatron from Kooltoyz and am in need of some information. The questions I pose consist of the following.

    1. Does he have an orange cap?
    2. Is he die-cast?
    3. Is the plastic quality good?

    Question four is more preference than factoid.

    4. Should I remove the plastic bullets from their holder, just pull one for a test fire or just leave them alone?

    If anyone can assist in providing the requested information, please do share.

    Thank you in advance.

    the handle is mostly die-cast and the plastic is pretty much the same as any other early G1 fig. The pellets dont fire very well

    I bought the original #6 from a few years ago so I cant really answer that, but I dont think canadian retailers have to follow that rule

    Some retailers (BBTS at least) are putting the cap on it. I got mine on ebay, came yesterday just fine. Totally sealed.

    My question about it- the border is purple on this, wasn't it more of a teal on the first run?
