    Skyfall. Megatron is seriously overrated.

    I can't say about Skyfall, having not owned him, but Megs is a beaut of a figure. A massive and impressive helicopter mode and an intimidating, show-accurate robot mode. Stiff, stable joints and wonderful weapons.

    Would recommend it many times over.

    Skyfall. The Leader class Megatron mold is nice, but nothing special... definitely overrated.

    Don't own Skyfall, but I love leader Megs. His transformation is a little basic for my taste. But he's an excellent looking fig.

    If you don't have Silverbolt or Dreadwind and you have the original Megatron, get Skyfall.

    If you don't have Megatron and you have either Silverbolt or Dreadwind, get Shadow Blade Megatron.

    If you don't have Silverbolt, Dreadwind, or Megatron....I don't know what to tell you. I love both molds. I have the original Megatron, Silverbolt, and Skyfall.

    Although if they're both at the same price, you could buy Shadow Blade Megatron, now, hope no one buys all the Skyfalls, and wait for them to possibly go on clearance.

    I say Original.

    But it's from your perspective of the Leader TFA Megs.

    Not too crazy over either of the paint schemes, but mold-wise I'd opt for the Megatron. I own the original and it's one of my favorite figures (out of just over 250).

    I'd recommend Megatron. I like the paint schemes on both of them but I prefer the Animated Megatron mold over Skyfall's.

    Consider that TFA is on life support (until the last wave is here and then...flatline) and it is likely Skyfall can wait.
    Get Shadow Blade while ye can.

    I regret not snatching him at retail.

    I am liking the Skyfall colors, plan to add him to my Supersonic Jets (ldr Jetfire, ROC Night Raven) a little later.

    get both, but at the moment grab the one that may vanish into EBAY pricing hell first, lol.

    I think it all depends if you are a Universe Whore or an Animated Whore. I did not get Shaddow Megs and really regret it (since it was $20 at the time). I like the color scheme, but already have the regular one, so I figured I didn't really need it. At the same time, I am a Universe Whore, so prettymuch anything (Classic) Universe I am buying. IMO it is a great/interesting color scheme of a mold that has grown on me since the original Silverbolt release.

    I would probably go with Skyfall on the off chance that the production number is low.......and then quickly save up for Shaddow Blade Megs. Damn I gotta get that figure at some point.

    Gotta say, Skyfall is impressive for a repaint. The gold accents highlight a great Universe figure.

    On the other hand, that Megatron mold rocks. But I'm biased that any former with swords rocks.

    I love the skyfall mold. I want to get it so I have all three. That said. If I could get a shadow megs for 30 bucks, I would get it. I have the Grey Ani. Megs and It is cool. And My personal Opinion is the paint on Shadow Megs is awesome.
