    Nice to see we're picking up the ball, but I haven't even seen Shadow Blade Megs out here yet. Think I'll pass on this one though.

    :(  Why couldn't they get rid of the blue on him, he'd look so much better.

    Wow, that's still ugly as sin... I was hoping something would be changed by the time it hit retail. Oh well, it'll be a great wall to hide Dinobots and Hot Shots behind if I find them while I'm broke.

    Pity us poor Brits, then; it's looking increasingly likely that we're getting this thing instead of the original Ultra Magnus. That's all kinds of suck. :(

    Not sure why they bothered with this repaint when the original figure is still difficult to find in plenty of areas.

    And, it's just a weird color scheme. I realize it's an "homage" paint app, but it only makes sense in alt-mode. Bot-mode looks very much screwy.

    it would've been a much better repaint if they hadn't left so much blue on him, especially not even touching the head

    It's too bad that one of the best Animated toys got one of the worst repaints I've ever seen.
    Shadowblade Megatron is awesome, though. :rock

    God he is ugly.

    I've seen the original twice at retail, sadly without the cash to pick him up either time.

    I will be very sad if it comes to me having to get this one over the show accurate colors because it will be easier to find/the only one available.

    Not the best repaint I've ever seen - we probably needed a new character and mould named Roadbuster than that.

    <-- So happy I got the original. This repaint could've been cool were it not for the blue. seriously, I don't know why they thought that would work. That's not hyperbole, I'm dumbfounded. Ever semi-logical explanation I think up is countered by the hard fact that it looks like ASS.
