    Saw Commander Prime, Megs, and Bulkhead at Target, but ultimately passed because I was kinda leery of the $11 price tag. Not sure, if they're worth almost the same pricetag as deluxes.

    Did you scan them? When I bought mine they scanned at 8.99 although the peg DID say 10.99 i think.

    I know what you mean. Seems kinda high to me too. But I have ALWAYS wanted trasnformers that were just like my GIJOEs. I always LOVED the small TFs like huffer, gears, pipes, windcharger. LOVE them. The new commanders are the best out of the cyberverse line vet, and the articulation is on par with modern Joes to a degree. Sure the new POC figs have ankle and wrist joints, but if you compare them to 25th figs, Megatron, Prime, Starscream, and even Bulkhead are much, MUCH more than just the shitty little TFs anymore. These things are VERY good.

    For me, I will have NO problem deciding if I want a small deluxe for @$14-$15 or a kick ass little TF with cool interchangable weapons, That work with all the cyberverse released so far...Like now, I have my Bulkhead, posed in a walking stance, with Battle steel primes cannons on his arms, Preview primes guns attached to those, and shockwave tubes running into his forearms, and Preview Primes Jetpack on his back using the mace he comes with as a mount.

    DUDE....These are worth it to me. I always said if they came out with lil Tfs like these, I would pay a few bucks more...well..I am..and have no reprets.

    Check em out man.

    Totally agree. They're awesome little figures well worth 8.99 imo especially since Joes are now apparently 10.99 which is complete BS.

    Got a pic of that badass sounding Bulkhead?

    While I have no interest in transforming mine I will say he's a great figure in hand. other than the lack of head articulation this guy is damn near perfect and he's so much fun to pose!

    I grabbed Megs today when I was at Target. What an amazing little figure. He is far and away the coolest Scout/Commander figure to come out in years. He is spot on to the show and extremely poseable, the two things that are the most important to me. I highly recommend getting him if you can find him.

    Here is my mini-review.

    Robot Mode:

    Amazing. Simply amazing. This robot mode perfectly captures Megatron's look on the show and his weapons are too much fun. My only complaints are the Decepticon sign is a little off centre and thus makes the chest panels look misaligned; and the lack of head rotation, but I completely understand why.

    Robot Mode: 9.5/10 (Stellar, the lack of a head rotation is the only thing stopping this guy from getting a 10/10)

    Vehicle Mode:

    Honestly, this guy is a lot better than people give him credit for in this mode. As Peaugh said in his review, all he really needs is some of that same grey colour that the rest of him is on the clear purple piece connected to his head. Very cool looking with the blade on top.

    Rating: 5/10 (Average, not fantastic but not horrible)


    Overall Rating (average): 7.25/10

    Yes Sir...I think I posted them in the cool pics thread

    Oh..and yea...8.99 by me, but the first ones I bought had a sticker on the bottom and they range up at 7.99. The new ones I see dont have that sticker covering the UPC

    Ooops..this was the megatron thread..all the pics are over on the bulkhead thread page 3

    I am so glad I am into Cyberverse. Thought of quitting but these little transforming G.I. Joe sized figured pulled me back. Megatron being the main offender. :D

    Megaton is definitely the best of the Cyberverse line. This includes DOTM and legions.

    Pretty much the only way this toy could be more perfect is if the cannon barrel could swivel to be accuate.

    EDIT: Yup, it does.

    This one of the most accurate figures of the whole line. Including deluxes and voyagers.

    I really don't get the love for this mold. I got it as a gift from my gf and I don't like it at all. The vehicle mode is laughable. I think Skyquake is the best cyberverse figure so far. Ultra Magnus would have had a chance at the top if he didn't hav flimsy shoulders/collar bone, very loose legs and arms, and a hammer to small for him to even hold.

    The vehicle mode is laughable, but the robot mode is the most accurate Megatron toy out there.

    Cyberverse Megatron is awesome. They should have just scaled up the cyberverse for the voyager. Can you even imagine how cool an upsized cvc Megatron would be?!?! Fuhhhh

    Can we get pics of this?

    EDIT: just checked mine - the cannon is three pieces of molded plastic: either half of the cannon (you can follow the seem straight down the barrel) & the balljoint that connects the cannon to the arm. There is no way to rotate the barrel that I can see without serious modification.
