    Well i just got this guy off a cybertron.ca forum member and im not sure if he sent it Broken or if this is a common problem. But when i go to transform megatron his Clip that connects the trigger to the barrels pellet shooter comes out, and is bent at the bottom pretty badly (I used a paper clip to fix it) also his chest seems to literately come off in the middle of going to robot mode......has anyone else has this problem or did i just get a bad trader?

    I've got an original US version and the Takara reissue, and no, that doesn't seem right.

    BTW, this belongs in the TF Toy Discussion Forum.

    My only opened G1 Megatron (Takara D-16 special) has none of those problems.

    Megatron is a very fragile toy though, easy to break.

    My megatron does not have this problem, but I heard the chest part can come out if you pull too hard(some of the encore have this issue)

    Is this the orignal or reissue?(check the stamping to see if it's made in japan or china)

    $80 should get u a misb, but most of the encore megatron package have to be opened for the orange plug thing. Of course it's up to you to decide if megatron was already damaged when you received him. If it is, you probably should ask a partial refund from the seller.

    You also should post this in the TFW2005 Radicons section, there might be someone who can help you to fix the chest. I remember seeing a encore megatron review on youtube long time ago, the reviewer had the same problem with the chest, but he used a simple way to fix it.

    this bent piece in the chest is actually standard for the encore release, straight from the factory. mine is like that, and most others are too.

    Takara's QC on the first wave encore releases was shit, that's all there is to it.

    I haven't taken that piece off my Encore Megs, but that part doesn't fit well to begin with.
    Hope you'll sort it out withoit much trouble.

    Listen dude, I don't want you to feel too bad about your purchase, but I do want you to gain some wisdom...I paid $90 for a mint original complete megatron with extra parts even...and you can def get encore misb for $80-$100.

    I have a New Years Megatron and had the same problem with the pellet mechanism (It was MISB). I just removed the stupid tab that bends. He can't fire pellets anymore, but transformation is much smoother now. It's a cool feature, but I was never going to use it so I just removed it. From what I understand the original Hasbro version removed this feature too.
