I absolutely love this guy so much!
Titans Return Marauder Megatron:
I really like the TR voyagers...
"dragonfire is the right of all sentient beings......especially Daenerys Targaryen"
When's he getting the nifty black and purple paint job w/red accents?
I get a real 'Bane' vibe from the face, while those dual cannons are awesome!
If I could do it then he'd have it on right now, but I've never painted a figure before, so I don't have any plans to do so in the future.
He's based off of Animated Marauder Megatron who also has the Bane vibe going on.
Which, if I'm not mistaken, was based in part on Beast Machines Megatron.
I've been pretty happy with the voyagers from Titans Return so far. I've picked up Megatron, Astrotrain, and Galvatron so far. Megatron's definitely my favourite of the bunch, and Astrotrain's probably the weakest of the three, but not by much. I still think he's a really good figure. I'm probably in the minority that prefers his train mode to his shuttle mode
I have T30 Blitzwing, but I'm not sure yet if I want to replace him with the TR version. I know I'll like the TR version more, but it'll depend on how much money I can spare when wave five preorders go up. Still not sure if I want Octane either
Not without any kind of modification they don't. I think there's a catch inside the leg that stops the foot from rotating past a certain point where it would be standing flat on the ground
It was based entirely on that Megatron. That version of Bane didn't come out to years later.
I'm sorry yours broke.
He had three personalities, so he already lost his head. Going to pieces was just the next step.
I took him out of storage the other day to see whether I wanted to replace him with the TR version.
I cannot change his head anymore because the paint stuck the whole thing shut.
Coupled with the crappy plane mode and fiddly shoulders... I feel like I should just throw him away >_>
Nah man don't throw him away.
Let's be honest, he isn't THAT bad. He has crippling design flaws but as a display piece he's fine.
The shoulders are fixable. The spring-loaded pop up head is... sort of fixable. Yeah, you can pull the spring out, but you also need to shove a bit of paper or something to add friction to the slide so the head stays in place.
But yeah, if Megatron is as good as people say, then I look forward to getting my hands on TR Blitzwing.
Yeah. But I like to touch my Transformers.
His proportions are pretty wack too (mostly heads large). I have no compunctions about replacing him with the TR version...
I'd just try and unscrew the head and fix it that way.
There are a pair of upgrade kits that each fix the shoulders and give a spare head. Never got 'em, but they look cool.
My 3rd custom/repaint...amazing what a little can of paint tape and patience can do!
