    I keep hearing people say that they won't buy that toy and how bad he is.....how is he bad? I saw some reviews and he seemed pretty cool!
    Can someone clear this up for me? Thanks!

    Yep its kind of ghey in the alt mode department, I had him at first but sold it and now only have the Leader class megs, if your after a cyb mode megs go for the 2 pack version, poseability is much better.

    QFT, imho the downfall of his Voyager version is the hugh jazz canon that not only affects stability, but also extends oddly from his forearm due to it staying in tact during transformation.

    2 pack Megs cheat by having the canon removed, but with such a half-assed alt mode I ain't complaining.

    Gee, am I the only one who likes Voyager Megs? Yes the cannon is bulky but I just turned the forearm over and rotated the hand and its decent now.

    My Deluxe one the leg at the mid-thigh part keeps falling off so i'm not happy with him.

    But Bulkhead is PURE WIN!

    I love Voyager Megs. That said, I also modded his cannon to fold in closer (ie: shaved off some of the ridge that keeps it hanging in mid-air).

    Really seems to boil down to two main points:

    -Do you like the alt-mode?
    -Do you like the omega-sized killplanets cannon?

    For me, I answered yes to both. ;)  However, if one or both of these really aren't your thing, you may not like the toy much.

    Personally the limited posability doesn't bother me (it's not THAT limited, just not what most of us are used to at this point). However, he can't do a ton of wild poses, though he does have a few I've figured out. :D 

    At the end of the day, he's still better than the Movie Voyager Megatron. >.>

    I like him, I also think the alt mode is really cool, who am I to say what a giant alien death ship is to look like?

    bulkhead is the best, but i like megs too. while both modes are kinda medicore ish i still like them (backwards vehicle mode looks like a space tank), and i find transforming him pretty fun.

    For me, the suck factors of Voyager Megs are:

    Alt mode is something, but it's not not exciting.

    Cannon looks shitty with the cockpit on the back.

    Cannon doesn't fold all the way in out of box.

    White instead of dark grey.

    Head looks unfinished, it's missing the "crown' peice from the show.

    Voyager Megatron is great! I have not encountered any quality control issues and I couldn’t care less about the alt. I don’t display any of my figures in alt. To me it does matter what others say. If you like then get it.

    I think that Voyager Megs is a nice figure! Except for some minor things:

    - White plastic instead of Metallic
    - Cockpit on the cannon :sly2: 
    - Clear red fingers?

    Except for those facts, i love him ! But Leader Megs pwnds him 100times ! :drool:
