    I agree totally that these figures are that damn good. Its just maybe I dont see Bayverse in the same light. I see Bayverse more like a side chick while G1 themed figures are basically like my main chick. I can only spend so much. I did the whole Fansproject thing. I did the TFC/Maketoys combiner thing. All I ended up seeing is Hasbro slowly do almost everything I haf wanted but was too impatient to wait for. Of course to a certain extent 3rd partys "motivated" hasbro to step up their game and pretty much take CHUG back forcing 3rd partys to move on to MP and legends scale. I finally been able to town down my 3rd party spending to only a select few MMC releases and various upgrade kits. Studio series made me really get back into Bayverse. But 3rd party prices, nah man. They fooled me once....shame on them. If they fool me twice, shame on me.

    After seeing continued results from the Tak/Has Studio Series line, I have every confidence that they will do a version of this character eventually and that it will be great. Perhaps it won't have the heft or "Masterpiece" feel that I'm sure this figure will, the (typically at a minimum) $100+ price of your average 3P figure is becoming very cost prohibitive.

    Looks like i'm buying ANOTHER TLK Megatron. Still his best design ever. I just wonder how long it will take to be released. I don't really follow a lot of this stuff.

    If Peru Kill and Challenger are any indication, I'd say December 2019.

    OK I hunk I understand what you’re trying to say a little better now. It just seemed like you were saying that 3P wasn’t doing bayformers justice and Hasbro was which doesn’t make sense considering how much better all of UT’s stuff has been than Hasbro.
    If they redo this design it’ll be a long time from now. Only TLK stuff that has been announced has been repaints so far. Yet another reason to get UT figures.

    Well what im trying to say is that 3rd party can make any line of characters better than Hasbro for a price. But unfortunately that price is getting played out. I liked 3rd party figures to fill holes in my Hasbro collection, not replace my Hasbro collection.

    I love the look of this. I just wish a company would do some to this degree on another character. Not something that we already have a decent 1 of for the moment atleast.

    Yeah if UT can do black magic with this design, I bet an 07 Megatron from them in this scale would be godly...

    I think that this Megatron goes a lot better together with the newer style of transformers from the bumblebee movie. So I think I'll be getting this Megatron instead of the mpm one. Plus this one seems less expensive over all. Ill be getting either the eventual dropkick or shatter to pair with my current mpm 2007 bee, cause I don't have enough money for both of them so this figure should fit right in with that style.

    And now with this new head for prime, it fixes one of the two major issues, which is the head and the neck of challenger. I can fix the neck now that the head is fixed, which is perfect! Looks like I’m in for both of these then

    Probably being a little hopeful here but seeing as we got his knife with Challenger I’m hoping that maybe we can get Peru Kill’s spark extractor with Dragoon, would pretty much make him complete in terms of weapons
