    What can I say? I purchased all 3 available Robot Replicas from the Collectors Store, and other than BB (Because he's BB) they all sucked for me, the parts are way too deformed to correctly represent their on screen counter part. Worse part is none of the figures comes with a rotating joint for the elbow! There are total of 4 Revoltech joints on the figure, they are all located at the shoulders and the knees, if they had pony up for 2 more, the figures would've been great, but nope, this line fall just short of that finish line.

    Megatron has tiny little head, and long arms that doesn't do much thanks to the lack of rotating elbow joint. the fusion cannon is meh, you wouldn't even know what it is unless you watch the movie, and even then it's crappy. Ah well, at least I have some revoltech joints out of it, I'm gonna try to use them to make the BB a better figure.

    I saw the first wave last week. I passed, but thought about getting Megatron later. I thought it looked much better than the other two. Thanks for the feedback, I'll just save my cash for Jazz, who I hope turns out better than these in the first wave.

    Only Robot Replica I have any interest in is Frenzy...and still maybe Barricade, if only because Barricade was such a badass >_>

    I don't mean to sound rude, but did people really think these were even comparable to Revoltechs?

    I don't know what y'all are talking about, but I love RR Megatron. I particularly love interchanging his limbs and making him Frankenformer.

    I think that given the fact that they didn't need to engineer any transformations for these figures and also that they were the same price as a transforming deluxe figure, people were expecting more.

    I was.

    dirge121, they are at forbidden planet for £12, so you could get it from there for roughly the same ammount as shipping maybe?

    Was really looking foward to these, and ended up pretty dissappointed.
    They look nice in detail but poseability is really lacking.
    Try as you might, you may never get that uber pose yo'd like from these guys.
    Good for pretty much just standing there while posing parts not to look cool , but just to look normal.
    Megatrons elbows are just retarded. Might as well be statues.
    Mega pvc's have better animation.

    To be fair, they do look pretty neat just standing there. They'll just bum you out If you decide to try and play with them. Thought these were destined to be about as poseable as Revoltech or Stikfas. Not even close

    Found one at retail 2 days ago.

    1-Smaller than expected
    2-Less detailed than expected
    3-Less articulated than expected

    So... well, it's fun to pose with the fusion cannon arms, that's about it.

    I picked up this guy today with Bumblebee. I thought I couldn't hate a figure any more than I hated Robot Replica BB. ......... hello, Megatron.

    Just like BB, he has only four revoltech joints. He has even MORE kibble than BB, which limits poseability even more. His foot joints (which aren't real revoltech joints) can't even ratchet due to the kibble! His shoulders are a joke. And the lack of a revoltech in the elbows REALLY limits poseability.

    His "fusion cannon" is a joke. It ties up both arms. It sucks.

    NO hand articulation?!?!?! What the dirty flying f*** is this?

    Megatron gets an F. Hell, he gets a Z. He is the WORST toy I've ever purchased. I will only be buying Prime in the future, since I'm a big Prime fan. No other Robot Replicas. They are horrible toys. They make titaniums look amazing.
