    This seems like a great way of preserving him for everyone who pre-ordered/imported (I imagine 60% of the people buying him). That rocks, now we wont have to deal with the whole blaze orange tip business.

    I'm not even gonna complain about the silencer or that other part of his gun mode. I'm just glad I'll have him.

    On a side note, of all the transformers you could spend $100+ on, I would take this Megatron hands down. 20th Anni Prime with the trailer looks great, but at $180 that's just too steep. The trailer should not cost as much as the toy. :throw

    The threat does remain of the blaze orange cap since he has a very obvious display of his alt mode on the front of the box. If he comes with the cap, I'm going to find a way to remove it without damaging the toy. Some mild solvent to kill the glue but not the plastic color should be easy to find.

    still though, I don't know how they are going to see an image on the box when they X-ray it. They shouldn't see the image at all, just the outline of the figure in the box, hence X-ray.

    I imagine the xray screen image will look just like when he was scanned in the movie by unicron.

    What's funny, but sad at the same time is that I've had my G1 Megs and Browning both mistaken for real guns. It's kinda disturbing now.

    I thought it was official that he would have the orange cap. Frankly, I'll be happy just to have him.

    I think it's funny that everyone thinks every package coming through customs is x-rayed. :lol 

    I worked at FedEx and we did alot of international deliveries. The packages fly over the border on a plane and only the customs paperwork actual went through customs. The only time the packages themselves saw customs was if there was something in the paperwork that threw up a red flag. Then they would have the shipment stopped at the airport and the questionable package sent to customs. It would then be opened ( not x-rayed ) to check contents. This was rare however as FedEx made sure the paperwork was good before accepting shipments from customers.

    I wonder if we'll get any reports of confiscated Megatrons at all.
