    Also up at Ehobby is TG-28: Generations Legends Megatron and Starscream 2-pack. Megatron forgoes the IDW inspired miner deco and instead sports the quintessential G1 silver deco. Starscream sports color matched arm blasters and a metallic deco, while the targetmaster partners are both rendered in slightly different hues. Notably Chop Shop is much closer to his G1 Brown than the burgundy Hasbro release.

    Megatron is really nice, but Starscream isn't different enough to double dip for me. If they redeco the mold as Thundercracker and Skywarp for a 2-pack I am down as hell.

    The deco on Megatron is nice, but totally misses the point of the design.

    Now Megatron looks more or less like his IDW Infiltration-era Cybertronian body (some characters have had way too many damn designs in IDW) without the backpack. Shiny, but at the same time, kinda less interesting.

    ...and yeah, as has been said, kinda misses the point of the molded details.

    Megatron defintely looks better to me than the US version. Don't really like the darker brown on Chop Shop though. Hasbro wins on that front, although this one could make for a nice insecticon clone. Right now I like that Starscream quite a bit especially since they painted part of the tail fin.

    Money is a bit tight right now so probably won't be able to go for this set unless the Yen dips to a favorable low. HLJ link if anyone's interested:

    That Megatron looks as good as it gets. I wish BBTS had this on Preorder.

    For people in the US, because it's more "geewun" most likely. But given this is the Japanese release they probably went this route because the IDW comics are relatively unknown over there.

    It's definitely an attractive deco, I'm tempted to double dip on this one.
