    If a thread of this has already been made, please merge them. I did a search and wasn't able to find a previous thread. Thanks.

    I recently purchased Shadow Command Megatron from my local Walmart last night. I must say, this figure does not disappoint at all.
    This is a great Tribute to Cybertron Galvatron in terms of color scheme. (I happen to really love that particular Cybertron Figure) He also slightly resembles G1 Megatron.

    Shadow Command Megatron's Alt. Mode isn't as accurate as the Voyager version, but the new paint job brings out all of what is great about this alt mode.

    In terms of the actual mold it's exactly the same as The Regular ROTF Leader Class Megatron. But I digress, the new paint apps really bring out the best in this mold. yes it may still have the gimp arm and the doom arm with no elbow joint, but to me it's worth it. I'm so glad I waited to buy this repaint. I highly recommend it to those who didn't like ROTF MEGS the first time around.

    I'll let the photos speak on my behalf. :) 

    Please, Enjoy.

    yes, the front treads are what I like to call "Cellphone Silver" the back treads are the standard dull unpainted gray.

    If you can get past the arm issues this tformer has, he's definatly worth the pick up. I am truly glad I did not buy the original version and waited for this guy. The paint job is great. He also has a new voice chip that says " the only command is mine!" or something to that effect.

    I skipped the first version of the mold, but I think I'll go for this one after seeing these nice pics.

    Thanks! (You now owe me $44.99 plus tax.)

    I dig the color scheme, but it's not movie-accurate so I think I'll pass. However, there remains the possibility of picking it up on sale and partswapping the silver bits onto the original figure, and then experimenting with the murder arm mod on this one.

    I'm really liking this guys repaint. I am so happy that I passed on the original paint scheme for this one. And as much as I though the skinny arm would bother me, It doesn't at all. In fact, I think it makes him cooler. Here are some pics in bot mode.

    Despite a lot of the complaints i've heard about this mold, I like it. Enough to get this repaint which I like better than the original. The only problem with mine is the electronics keep going berserk, even after I put him away.

    Got one for $30 to get free deluxes. Pretty solid figure but limited articulation.
