    Cool. Yet, the more I see this figure, the less I want it. Probably will just get the voyager.

    I'll be buying both the voyager and leader but I may just wait and se if they do premium version this time around, I still got so many movie figs I need to get rid of first.

    LOL. I was just about to take pictures for my review! Saves me some work. It's actually a much nicer figure in person. Still got issues, but a lot better than expected.

    The head looks a little weird and his looks funny with it being so small and skinny. Otherwise not a bad figure. It sees that Hasbro has a tough ime making any movie Megatron figure. I little customizing on paint and this figure has strong potential.

    surprised they didn't list the tank mode as a con. It still looks really bad. Even a mere legends class beats it in that respect.

    And I still can't get over a leader class figure lacking elbow articulation. That boggles the mind.

    Those are the 2 big reasons I'm going with the voyager. This one'll need to be on severe discount with a premium paint job before I even consider it.

    Legends looks better because it has very few moving parts. Easier to obtain a more unified look in tank mode that way. Some cons were listed for the tank mode if you took the time to read the review.

    -turret can't rotate or move up/down
    -turret is more or less defined, especially from the rear
    -rear tank treads tend to slightly rotate outward because of the weight
    -visible head in tank mode... the fan might care!
    -could have used more paint apps (hello Premium!)

    Umm...is it just me or does his Megatron have more silver paint on his chest, legs, and head and a black wash on his internal parts inside his chest area?

    that's no excuse for the leader. Look how good Leader Optimus is. Legends Megatron is by no means perfect either. In my view the legends prioritised the tank mode at the expense of the bot mode.

    The overall shape is the problem with the tank. It is all wrong. Those details are additional problems. And yes, I read the whole review, it wasn't a lengthy read.

    A little $3.75 paint and some light work on the arms/turret and this figure will rock.

    He's a combination of parts from the destroyed Decepticons thrown into the ocean in the first film.

    The little arm is either from Brawl/Demolishor or it's Frenzy.
