    Quite a few months ago I asked the same question before the Henkei line was released. Now that Henkei Megatron has been released, and many of you including myself have him, I was wondering where people stand now on making the wing modification to him?

    A.) I have made the modification to my Henkei Megatron(Please show pictures).

    B.) I plan to make the mod, but have not done it yet

    C.) Ain't no way in hell it's gonna happen.

    Maybe for me. I have already modded my Hasbro version (clipped the wings off really easily) but haven't yet on the Henkei version.

    I really dont mind the wings, and I hate Partsformers of any kind, so no...
    (I know it technicaly wouldnt make him a parts former, but it feels the same to me when you have to put pieces on just to make it look right...

    I like the way they look on the Henkei version. And I think the mold looks awkward without them. So they stay.

    I clipped the wings on the Hasbro version. If i was getting the Henkei, i'd probably do the same. He looks better without it i think.

    I have the henkei version and removed the pin on the back of the wing completely.

    Now it snaps in place when transforming.\

    Don't have him (yet), but I'd probably rather leave them on. After all, he was one of very few earthbound Classic Decepticons, how else does he remain in command of space shuttles and fighter jets? :)  Matters less with Universe, but that still leaves the "partsformer" issue.

    Do you only have one or did you buy two of them two keep one in mint or MISB condition?

    IDK, I kinda like the wings removed look. I guess I'm just kinda scared of doing to this figure even though I did the same mod a tad differently to my hasbro version.

    Only mod I'd be interested in doing is moving the cannon off the bottom of his arm.

    I actually have Henkei Megatron, but imo his wings looks very nice on him.

    Eeeeexcellent. I shall be interested to see how that goes. And why ARE HasTak obsessed with mounting guns to the bottoms of arms at the moment?

    When and if I get Henkei Megs I won't be clipping the wings since IMO the mold looks terrible without them. Way too bare.

    I like the guns better on the bottom. It gives you the ability to still use their hands for stuff. If Megs had that big cannon on top their really wouldnt even be a point to having a hand there

    That's why I'd put the cannon on the side of his arm, where it actually makes sense.

    Wings are staying. They actually make him look cooler in some poses.

    I just wish the arm cannon was placed differently (on the side of his arm, not the bottom).

    The wings are cool. They add a certain overshadowingness to him. Like they help impose fear among his troops.

    Wings are staying on. I like 'em, even if they make him a bit backheavy.

    Well, it seems the majority will be keeping him as he is. I know it's all an individual choice, so I guess I just need to crack him open and see what I really like better.

    Hey tamo, how would you have Megatron transform with the cannon repositioned?
