    The cannon for MP-05 Megatron is just too big in my opinion and I just wanted to know if you would be interested in buying a cannon that is more in scale with it or are you OK with its current size?

    If a 3rd Party Company were to produce one that is smaller in size and lighter in weight, I would definitely buy it.

    Your thoughts and opinions...

    Although I'm selling my MP Megs, this does sound like a great idea.

    Yeah, I wonder why it has never been done?

    It would seem like an item people would want.

    While the large cannon suits him aesthetically, it does it hard to balance. Plus, he should be shorter I think as well.

    I think iGear has one in the works that's in scale with the Mini-MP Prime they made.

    I'm hoping that iGear decides to make a smaller cannon type upgrade for MP Megs since they made the MP-01 upgrade head with the pointy ears for the bigger MP-01.

    I'd definitely be interested. I've heard that G1 Megatron's cannon works well on him. I've tried to get one off eBay but the prices always got too high for me...

    Wouldn't it be difficult to incorporate into the gun mode?

    They just need to start from scratch. MP Megs is a feeble fucker whose hard to stand, harder to transform, and is grossly oversived in his Walter P-38 mode.
    I hope they do a new Megs after MP-10.

    I was hoping some 3rd party would make that a few years ago. I have moved on now though, but I would probably buy it if it became availible and looked decent.

    I would buy it in a heartbeat. Mp megatron is really limited because of that huge cannon.

    Smaller no. Lighter yes. Make one out of carbon fiber or something.

    I would buy one if it were the size of the one seen here:

    Is that the one from the G1 toy? I can't tell.

    The G1 Megatron cannon looks like a better proportioned fusion cannon IMO.

    I'd be interested in just getting a MP Megs, but yes. I would enjoy having a smaller cannon for him.
