    I really like the looks of this repaint. The purple and black look great together.

    This'll be a pass for me. I'm more than happy with the original color scheme.

    You can also find him in Knoxville. I think it was Target that I saw him at.

    I saw this last night at Walmart too. I was tempted to post about it and decided not to. Wish I had. The black and purple do look really good on this figure in person. I would have gotten it, but i have the original already.

    So did I. I miss a lot of news credits this way. The problem comes from people buying it early from eBay and posting galleries. It totally confuses me and bakes me believe the toy has been out for a while when in reality it hasn't. LOL.

    Anyway... Megatron looks pretty cool in these colors. It makes him look like a different character.

    I really like this recolor. Unfortuantly though, one Megatron is more than enough for me.

    I've had the thing for over a month thanks to hasbrotoyshop.

    It is very dark. Did a ok youtube review of it. The shimmering purple accents are pretty much the only thing that breaks up the paint scheme.

    That and the Silver fusion cannon.
