    Optimus Prime (Darkside) - United Decepticons - TFW2005.COM

    Megatron (Darkside) - United Decepticons - TFW2005.COM

    Exclusively available at the Tokyo Toy Show earlier this year, this pair of toys are immensely badass releases with top-notch paintjobs. They are two of my favourite Classics toys - which is something considering the sheer variety of cool toys Hasbro and Takara have treated us to.

    Here's a couple of previews for you:

    I love my Darkside Prime. Megatron's not too bad, either :D 

    The gun belongs to Fansproject Crossfire.

    So wait... they can slap the old Nemesis/Scourge paint onto the WFC prime... However, the repaint of Scourge for RTS G2 Prime has yet to happen...?

    Anyway... the repaints looks interesting. Darkside Megatron seems based on his new form from the IDW comics. Scourge doesn't look too shabby at all.

    I love these two figures, right now they are the jewels of my collection, mostly because the purple and teal pop so much and they look so vibrant. I highly recommend these figures, especially megatron.

    EXACTLY! I got this set right when bbts got them in, i had em preordered. But i started a thread in toy discussion, asking what the official story is with these characters. Anyway in that thread right after i got them i said the exact same thing you did......
    ...............
    I got a big galvatron vibe from megs, and mentioned all i need is for them to make a galvatron Kre o so i can rob it of its head.

    Headrobots are you reading? Do what you do best!

    isn't Darkside Megatron a bit redundant? I mean hasn't he always been on the "darkside" and it does not help that both him are prime have the same faction logos as it makes prime some what special while megs stays just about the same...I'd of maybe left off the faction logos.

    But other wise they both look really cool

    It's basically what you get when Megatron's evil becomes so malevolent his own shadow becomes alive.

    At least, according to the one-liner bio.
