    Hello all,
    Im kinda divided in my opinion as to either get AM15 Darkness Megatron or the BBTS Dark Energon one, so i thought id see how others feel about them. Which one would you buy and why? Cheers.

    I'm leaning toward Darkness Megatron for his G1-ish deco (the chrome doesn't bother me overly much) and two awesome-looking arms microns. The Dark Energon version looks OK but I think I'm getting tapped out on tranlucent plastic figures.

    ^yep.

    I like Dark Energon Megs better, but am getting Megatron Darkness (this is the official Japanese name) for Hades. If I like that Megs enough (so far so good), I will pass up DE Megs.

    Neither.
    No diss, but I'm not into Black Megatrons, and AM15 loses out on it's 1/2 finished silver Deco.....where his entire body silver in the appropriate spots I would be all over him!

    Dark Energon.

    That chrome on the Arms micron version doesn't look good at all. Plus you have to sticker the sucker up.

    I'm not interested in either of them. But if given the choice I'd take Dark Energon Megatron out of the two.

    I'm wondering how difficult it would be to strip the chrome.

    Dark Energon. I had Darkness Megs on preorder until I saw the photos for the DE one. The Shadow Blade/Command color scheme looks a lot better IMO.

    I'd pick Dark Energon. I think DE has the better colors, while Darkness Megs has the better accessories. However, with my intense hatred of chrome, Darkness Megs will never be a purchase for me.

    Neither because the mold isn't that good and I don't like the colors on either of them.

    Dark Energon. I'm not big on the transparent shoulders, but the yucky chrome on Darkness Megatron is even worse.

    Darkness Megs looks like he stepped out of a bad early 00's metal video.

    Neither. If I want another PRID Megatron mold, I'll pull one out of a public toilet. From there, I'll decide if I want to spray paint it silver or purple.

    I like Dark Energon and I bet he'll be cheaper too.
