The leader it's better than the voyager.
I have both the leader and the voyager. The voyager is the better figure all around but I love the size of the leader's alt mode and the face swapping gimmick is pretty cool. It's a shame about those arms though.
John Warden clearly cares a lot. Look at that amazing pose he put Megatron in! I am going to get one so I can display it in the same pose as the thumbnail image.
I'm glad to see another use, besides eating, for Cheetos. Very clever use of one put in Megsy's fusion cannon.
I'm sticking with my oversized voyager Megatron from Wei Jiang.
Well, the ones for AOE were more interesting I guess.
Derpy poses, derpy arms, derpy person.
"Fitting the giant cheeto into the budget meant some minor sacrifices elsewhere, thus the hollow gorilla arms and flimsy plastic. But we knew the fandom would love the cheeto as much as we do, and we're excited to bring it to them."
They could have went one step further and hired people specifically to chew up Cheetos and create a paste like substance to fill the follow spaces in the gorilla arms. I really think its more environmentally friendly and if you get hungry you can lick your figures.
Hasbro: You are sitting on a golden cheesy pile of money.
They forgot the part at the end where they then ship the almost finished figure to their Chinese factory, where "our friends are Wei Jiang do their final touches to REALLY make the figure pop!"...
I love it when people try too hard to be cool.
Did a 35 year old on Meth write that commercial script?
Having met John in person at SDCC a few years ago I can tell you he's not being falsely enthusiastic or "derpy". Obviously derpy is in the eye of the beholder, but still.
This figure could have been great and a really nice one up on the Voyager if it weren't for the hair trigger on that arm cannon. Not every figure can be a winner, but this one felt like it should have had a few more days/months of QC before it hit store shelves simply based on the price alone. Meh... it happens.
I'll wait for the Movie the Best version. I like the lighter gray, brings out the details of the sculpt better. But, yeah, that hollow forearm is a damn eyesore. Oh well.
I'm sorry, but the moment he said "COMPLEX Transformation" I laughed so hard I broke my chair. Then I shut the video off.
There is absolutely NOTHING complex about that toy.
I agree. I like the voyager, but the leader has a better transformation and looks better, plus bigger.
I'd say he'd be better than the voyager if it weren't for the forearm gaps and GARBAGE hip tolerances. Love him still. Love every TLK Megs, honestly. And this guy's flame effects are pretty useful with Trypticon.
For kids, who these toys are made for, 30 steps can be complex.
Perobsally, I loved the video. You can tell he had fun and that he loves working on this brand.
Also, the bloopers are pretty funny
"This version of Megatron... he's a bad guy"
This had me so confused at first because I read it as "Cheerios".
