    Digital-Toys.com has reported they have also received confirmation on MP05-Megatron, as well as stating Takara has DENIED that TFC-06 Megatron is being re-released.

    Re-re-release.

    Seemed like odd news to start with. Got the Reissue the first time around anyway.

    Thanks for clearing that.

    Let's see, ANOTHER release of an underarticulated, overpriced and ugly toy who's only novelty is being a gun and the first Megatron figure, or a Masterpiece treatment of the same character? Hmmn, tough choice. :p

    Not really. Someone will always buy a reissue of the original. Wether or not this new MP-05 will actually sell depends greatly on it's own merits and what they decide to do with it. I'm not bashing the toy, as I've not seen it, however I will say that it would have been a safer and less costly move for them to simply reissue the original. Still, it'll pay off for them if they make it well.

    Even if it's not the case anymore, why does it have to be a "or"? It could have been BOTH. I can read and watch tv at the same time you know, so they can release 2 different Megatrons at the same time as well.

    Since I hadn't realized it was edited on a previous news item and had mine deleted, I will repost my image here:

    And given MP-03's horrid QC and crap colors, I'd be very hesitant about blind-ordering any further "Masterpieces." I don't even really care, since I have a C-9 original and D16-S.

    Ditto in a big way. A "Masterpiece" has to live up to it's name.

    I don't remember anybody proving it was a hoax. I also remember the classics Grimlock color sheet was in the exact same style, and that was no hoax.

    Well I was at the Hasbro Panel when Hasbro said it was fake. More of a joke by a friend of Hasbro's than anything else. It is definately not an upcomign product.

    Sonofabitch. I still need a TFC Megatron, I really wanted the reissue for a better price and case freshness.
