    I only just realised, of the first ten toys, six are either BB ,Megatron or Prime.

    What have they changed on Classics Megatron's face?
    Other than the paint it's hard to tell.

    I have all Henkei releases. I had given thoughts to buying Megs and BB again, as well as that spinning gimmick Prime, but I'm rather shocked at how plain they look.

    Megatron is painted much plainer than the first version. No chrome and they changed the location of where the red was. It's painted closed to the G1 show version of Megs. With The WFC, they are painting in the pink lighting from the game. Looks like both Bumble bees and soundwave have painted eyes.

    I think it's funny how everyone else gets glossy paint jobs and Drift gets painted vents.

    I think that may be mold degradation you're seeing there. The lack of silver paint probably doesn't help, though.

    The lack of the pointless black unibrow that was present on both classics and henkei megatron makes united megatron a buy for me

    I really like that Megs, shame the logos on the gun are unpainted.

    Their excuse is those 6 figures are Prime, 'Bee and Megatron's Cybertron and Earth modes. At least Prime must be quite upset about the change.

    I am very looking forward to Cybertronian Megatron, kinda happy I couldn't find the Generations one right away to think of it now.

    The only one I am remotely considering picking up at this point is WFC Megatron.

    I've got Straxus on preorder, I really dig the all blue look.

    If Cliffjumper actually has red blades, then I'd be for that too. DS accuracy FTW!

    I hope the United figures come with a stat card like the Henkei figures! I have my Henkei figs all boxed away right now, but in anticipation for United, I wanted to go back thru my inventory, make sure I didn't have any holes in my collection. the cards help immensely - I can just thumb through my binder of Transformers cards and remember which ones I had bought, and which ones I'm missing.

    the Masterpiece, Binaltech, Henkei, Energon, and G1 reissues all came with cards, so I never need to rummage through my TFs in storage.

    plus the cards look nice!

    What?? you can get those targetmasters from the pcc line. They suck btw don't even look like guns. Why would you spend 30 per deluxe to get crappy pcc minicons.
