The Allspark will be mine, and Cybertron will tremble at my feet.
|Motto||The Allspark will be mine, and Cybertron will tremble at my feet.|
Back at Cybertron, when it is late at night, and very dark, robots tell each other stories of the war. They spin stories about the deeds of Megatron, and though robots don't feel cold, the listeners shiver. The only ones who don't enjoy a scary Megatron story are the old ones, the ones who were there. These old Autobots remember the real Megatron. Many of them bear scars sustained in the heat of his fusion canons, or dents delivered by his powerful swords. To those old robots, Megatron is no monster, he is a warrior so vicious and terrible that monsters pale in comparison.
* No known weaknesses.
* Scientific, strategic and engineering genius.
* Fusion cannon can disintegrate up to 40 feet of solid steel.

One Tuesday afternoon, I'm in Birchels (A Tasmaian Book store) I was looking at a voice control Dalek, and then I saw it. A shelf, filled with and dedicated to, Transformers Animated! Moving so fast I nearly bowled over a stray woman, i was over at that stand, There was the entire wave 1, but I had only eyes for one figure, Cybertron Mode Megatron. There were two of him there, so i took one and paid. And (yes i know never to start a sentence with "and" but anyway) that is how this fine figure came into my collection.
This is a gooood box, in the shape of the Animated logo, on the front, there is a picture of Megatron, and on the side theres a strange call out "Megatron wields his fearsome Fusion Blade. Fusion BLADE?! Yeah, the box seems to really think Megatron's massive Fusion cannon can turn into a sword, it cant, and even though he used a sword in the cartoon, it didn't come from his cannon, and it was just a regular sword. Something Animated packaging has that, as far as i know, no other packaging has is a "Galactic Powers and abilities" section, and according to this, Megatron has no known weakness and is a scientific, strategic and enginering genius. Also according to this, and I really like this one, his Fusion Cannon, can allegedly disintegrate up to 40 feet of solid steal! Do yourselves a favour, don't piss this guy off.
Fusion Fighter Mode:
Thats what the box calls this mode. It looks awful, the top is to high, the fusion cannon has become an engine, theres no detailing, its not show accurate, the list of its faults goes on.
Now spin it around.
NOW things are getting good, I am sure it was made to go like this: not only is the fusion cannon still a cannon, but its level is right too, lower too the ground and stuff, this is the front as far as I am concerned. It looks really nice, and it looks almost insect like, with learing red eyes and antennae, get him and spin it and you'll understand. Theres some "landing" gear underneath but he does not roll well without it deployed. Its not show accurate whichever way you spin it, but this way is more accurate that the "front" view. Its gonna score an 8/10, because of the goofy cockpit and lack or show accuracy.
This mode is really good, because, first off a GIANT cannon dominates his right arm. This cannon looks really good, can be posed on top of or under his arm, though you have to bend at the elbow slightly for pose with it on top, but you hardly notice and it makes no difference, He has clear red fingers, which look a bit silly, but otherwise he looks cool as far as that is concerned. he has great articulation, bends at the knees, elbows. swivels at the shoulders, elbows and wrists, feet are slightly articulated due to the transformation. His legs swivel, head rotates 360 decrees, basically all the articulation you could want. Real stable, he can hold that fusion cannon with no trouble. Speaking of that massive cannon, it houses all his gimmicks, the first is a nice touch, a launching missile, which has a nice bulkhead on it. His cannon supposedly converts to a sword, but this is a lie, you can swing down a blade and another automorphs into position, but its not a sword, its a giant cannon, with a massive blade attached. what would have been cool was it the fusion cannon detached at the cockpit area, coming off with the blades and this could have been configured into a hand held sword, this would have made the cannon more show accurate and less heavy. His entire colour scheme is red, pearl gray, black and a really nice regal gold Deceptison insignia in the center of his chest, all Decepticons from animated seem to have these gold symbols, but i only think Megatron, as leader, should have one. I give this mode a full 10/10
Get this guy. Thats enough said, get mobile right now, and go get him, he's gonna appear in my stop motion, at the start, before he gets his earth mode. Its nice to see a Cybertron mode of him released, especially a voyager class one, with a lot of detail put into it, I highly recommend him, he is probably the best of wave one. He is my favourite character also so, that helps push his mark higher but he really does deserve this 10/10 I'm gonna give him, now that you've read this, go get him.
