    For tonight's new gallery I'd like to draw your attention to the latest addition to our galleries by our photo staff member SydneyY. Here for your enjoyment tonight is the recently released in Japan Megatron Darkness, from the Transformers Prime Arms Micron series. Megatron Darkness is the debut of the Voyager Class Megatron mold from the Transformers Prime line for the Japanese market, and features a cool darker color scheme and two Arms Microns, Gora II and Hades. The overall effect is a much more demonic / dark warrior looking Megatron, more in line with the fully Dark Energon infused version seen in One Shall Rise than the US release Megatron.

    Check out the full gallery by opening the link below:

    Nice photo gallery Sol.
    I still personally think the chrome paint makes the figure look bad, but I love his two Micron, especially the Hades Micron.

    Thanks, though this one is all the work of SydneyY, so please give him all the praise :) 

    I think the deco is very sharp, though I agree that I don't care for the chrome. If that dark gray on the legs had been used on the chest and shoulders as well, it would have looked far nicer IMO, and I'd have picked one up at AA this weekend had that been the case.

    Though the Minicons are just badass looking.

    The chrome has really grown on me. It works really well with the clear purple running throughout him, and on Hades. I agree that dark grey might have been better... But in person, the chrome doesn't bug me. It has an odd kind of brushed look to it that makes it seem like they used a different chroming technology than they have before... Here's hoping this chrome doesn't flake.

    Only thing I wasn't keen on this figure was the tacky stickers, and that's from someone who has loved AM series stickers so far. I hate those silly squiggles....now that the photos are done, I'm going to peel them off.

    I'm wondering how Gaia Unicron looks like....I hope Megs D and Unicron's deco could compliment each other and the chrome will make more sense :p

    Is the plastic darker than the original? That's what it looks like.

    Compared to Hasbro version? I don't have it, but from what I saw of him on the shelves, Megatron Darkness has much darker grey and black plastic.

    Right on, Hasbro Megatron is of much lighter grey & it is more show accurate to me than the Darkness Megatron.

    The Alt mode can be Transformed a bit better than the instructions imply.

    I'd suggest flipping the belly plate around and having the wide bit facing forwards the trapping the chest plate sides over that then (different from the official way) put the wings a notch lower so they come from the side of the body and don't perch on top of them and then they can be slotted into the gaps in the back of his shoulder plates too which makes for a much cleaner look.
    Lastly his feet should be pointed backwards as this replicates the trailing engine parts megatron has quite well (rather than fold them up).

    I'd be tempted to either add a tone of silver paint to him to even the whole look out or buy a can of smoke spray laquer and spray that all over his chest and shoulders not sure I'd need another Dark Megatron though with the Shadow Blade coloured one coming out in America which is a much nice "Black Megatron" so I'd probably be more likely to lighten him up to match the chrome - and that would also make him look more like the smaller AM Megatron too.

    He's worth buying for hims Microns alone though - I can't see me paying much more than £30.00-£40.00 for him though. As If I was paying a premium for him I might as well spend that money of FE Bulkhead or Breakdown instead and just hope that Hades comes out as a single packed toy.

    For those of you who suggested chroming the face causes loss of detail, and didn't read the feedback thread.

    Looking at it in hand, that doesn't appear to be the case. The head sculpt has some deep recesses anyway, so chroming it simply means that the light catches it in a certain way.

    Oh wow; I love that chrome detail. It really adds such a shiny flair to Megs that you wouldn't really expect from the dark warlord. It's like he forged himself out of pure silver and went to the finest car-wash in existence!

    That purple cannon is really cool; helps purple is my favourite colour. Got a nice dark colouring to it, and I find it utterly hilarious when Megs is wearing those wings on his back. He's like some kind of shiny robot angel of doom or something XD

    Great pictures, Sol :D

    I will prefer they the paint job which is similar to the FE Megatron than chrome.
