Found on weibo...
A quick comparison......
Prefer DX9's foot but this does a better job of fixing the rest of the leg.
EDIT: looks like you leave the stock foot in its alt mode configuration and this covers it completely.
Jesus Christ that is absolutely awful. What the fuck were they smoking?
How to ruin a pretty good figure that has some rather unfortunate design flaws? Oh just make it more G1 with blocky leg extensions to make him look incredibly disproportionate and have those parts parts-form. I'm usually a forgiver of partsforming when the end result looks good (in the case of that other Megatron add on set) but not when the final results looks horrendous.
For fuck's sake. God forbid ANY one of these fucking third party companies venture out of their precious "muh Geewun" comfort zone and make parts for him to closer resemble one of his IDW designs like the Stormbringer one like a IDW styled head.
Looks like the new feet have a wider range of tilt. I will take that
That's barely an upgrade.
Looks good to me...as is ofcourse...if I get Megatron I won't be seeking out a downgrade...
To be honest, I like it. It makes the legs appear more G1. If I wasn't already getting Apollyon, I would get this. But, because I don't need a Leader Megatron that's a tank, this is a pass.
I like it. However if it isn't cheaper than the other kit, I'll be passing.
Really, can somebody pleeeeeeeeeease just upgrade the damned cannon? That's it. No freaking feet, no hands, not a set of full-on replacement legs. Just the cannon. Really.
"Alright third parties, how can we fix a tiny flaw that barely impacts an already great toy?"
"PARTSFORMING! MISMATCHED AESTHETICS!"
it's amazing how seamlessly those boots integrate with the existing figure!
wish people would stop trying to make a g1 inspired megatron into something its not. THIS IS NOT G1 MEGATRON, GET OVER IT. The original figure looks fine as it is, not everything has to be g1 (and yes i grew up on g1, not a hater)
Looks promising. Just needs a bit more detailing and shown in final color. Of course, I'd also like to see how these parts integrate into alt mode (if possible). At the moment, I think DX9's effort is the better of the two as the parts can be integrated into both modes, and isn't so slavishly G1 as these shin/foot parts appear to be. Looking forward to seeing more.
I like the legs, better than DX-9, would you need to remove his original feet to put them on?
Does it look like the new left and right foot are different sizes in DukeFett's post?
I don't understand the upper arms, it makes him look less g1?
Only thing that would totally sell me on this is if they add a shell on the arm cannon to look more g1.
The DX9 one is better.
So is PE going to get in on a set too, being they are doing the they are doing "Combiner Wars" stuff?
Bring on the options!
Holy crap no kidding. This is awful.
I'd really like to see Third Parties breach their comfort zone of blocky G1 homogenous design aesthetics, but I have a feeling they won't for fear of revealing just how creatively bankrupt they are. I've never seen a single 3rd Party company match the subtle lines and curves Hasbro sculpts into their figures for that natural line flow and proportions.
And that's not even to consider them doing BW figures, or anything organic in shape.
Now that's a choice
