Transformers Prime Powerizers Voyager Megatron More Images

Megatron-Robot-9
We've got a few more quick pictures of Transformers Prime Powerizers / Voyager Class Megatron for you now! I was lucky enough to pick one up earlier today and believe me, this is an excellent release. The robot mode is very accurate to the animation model, the spaceship mode is also pretty accurate, though the main attraction is definitely the robot mode.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so check out a whole bunch of them after the break!

the brushed metal texture is amazing on the plastic, its just a shame they didnt paint it or use a darker color to bring it out, that is bone white...
ORIO
Looks cool to me. Kinda want to wait and see what Takara will do with it colorwise.
MidnightBliss
That looks really good. Can't wait until they start hitting shelves.
scypris115
hmmm.. maybe Ill buy this figure, he actually doesnt look bad, hes got back kibble but you can fold the parts back so you cant see it. Lack of paint doesnt bother me at all because I can paint it myself if I really need to. The weapon is kinda weird because the sword doesnt fold all the way back, but that doesnt kill it for me. So this might go back on my buy list.
Axel990
Not really a fan of the sword and continuation of Mech-Tech. The sword looks too short to me.
PowermasterJazz
He matches up with FE Optimus pretty well. I hope we get FE Optimus in the states. I'm dyin' over here
shroobmaster
I love being alive in 2012 where I can buy this toy. We know he is not that big but his proportions are so powerful he LOOKS heavy.

I think it looks about the length it had when he cut down zombie Cliffjumper on the show.

I have to say I love the spiked shoulders on this guy. He looks like some sort of evil knight.

Yeah the brushed effect really took me by surprise. I was very impressed, it's a fantastic touch.

The colour in hand is pretty standard Hasbro gray plastic, but the brushed texture manages to save it from looking too "cheap". If Takara goes all silver though, that'll be a sight to behold.

Got a Voyager rerserved at Argos for pick up tomorrow. Hope its Megatron. Not that interested in Optimus since I have the FE.
Bountyan
The pic next to crouched Optimus makes me not feel so bad about the height difference.
Liege Prime
I think he looks great, thanks for the pics. Man, people were going nuts over him being small but he isn't small for a Voyager at all.

if you do get prime, can i have it? i actually want to get that figure
Dinobot747
I want to like it, but TBH, he looks a tad on the "meh" side. Will definitely be picking up the Deluxe, but I'll wait until a video review for this guy.
Robogeek28
So his blade can indeed lock in place then?


These pics do make him look better but the color still throws me off on him. I guess I'll hafta wait and see what TakTom does with him colorwise before making any decisions.
Timesynch
He looks decent but could have been executed much better all things considered. The height difference is annoying but in battle poses, it seems negligible without closer scrutiny. But since he's the only Megatron close in scale to FE Voyager Optimus, I suppose he's a buy. Great pictures and review!

I'm very curious to this as well. Everyone else is saying it can't. What's the secret?
iDarkDesign
Has anybody noticed how that knife/gauntlet is an almost straight true to form copy of the Critical Mass Knife by Tom Anderson?

I couldn't find a site form Tom Anderson so here:
Critical Mass Fantasy Knife | Fantasy Weapons | Knife Gauntlet at SwordsKnivesandDaggers.com

I cannot wait to pick him up!!! I'm so glad I already bought FE Optimus Prime on robot kingdom!!! They will look epic next to one another!!!

I think it's less a problem with him being small for a Voyager, and more a problem with him being small compared to Voyager Optimus, who he should be larger and more imposing than.
Autovolt 127
This is perfect actually. I thought the scale would bug me but it's pretty close anyways.

Plus he does look good. I'm excited for his future release.
Runamuck
He would be really awesome if he wasn't that awful plasticy gray color. Hope Takara spruces him up a bit with silver.
Axelle
Those early pics really didn't do him justice. Any doubt I had about this figure being great has just been demolished. The grey paint is kinda fugly but not enough to pass on it and I wasn't planning on displaying him with OP so scale won't be an issue..
Kaijumaster
SEXY...but unpainted. I'm gonna hold out for a (Hopefully) better Takara Paint scheme.
kaijuguy19
Well! looking at it now he's not that short as I feared he'd be. He's actually only almost as tall as Optimus so that's good!

Still maybe if I can find a way to upgrade his size a bit and make his chest just as wide as the FE Optimus figure he'll be all set!
General Magnus
Wow, amazing Megatron.
Jazz342
Is it me or doesn't anyone else think has/tak has failed again with megatrons alt mode ?
TylerMirage
Now there's a Megatron.

And as for the scale to Optimus; eh, I don't care. It's close enough. Definitely purchased. You know...whenever they're released in western Canada.
Creaky
C'mon, tommorow. Just come and go already so I can get mine!

Really glad to see that he's not just the famous 'Games Workshop Grey' - the texturing should make him much more interesting to look at. I have some minor concerns about his long term durability due to the extensive clear plastic, but I'm sure he'll be fine.
soymonk
Wow, the figure looked okay in the video review, but it looks atrocious in these photos... a definite pass...
Rikerwota
That back kibble really ruins it for me
SPLIT LIP
He's so small. He's so much bigger than Optimus in the show, but I would've gone for the same size. Everytime I think I might go for this guy I see another picture of him and turn away. Those shoulders are awful, too. They don't sit at all like they do in the show. That back kibble is likewise horrible. Such a potentially great toy ruined by a few, though major, flaws.

Honestly, I think that's how I feel about most of the toys from this line. I think I'm going to like them, but a few small things that annoy me add up and I end up not liking it.
Snark
MEGATRON. Where's your paint job, son!?
Paxtin
I'm a lot more forgiving of this figure then I am of the RID Optimus Voyager.
The size doesn't bother me. To be honest, as transformers go, we're lucky he's this much in scale with the other two Voyagers.

The gray plastic doesn't bug me that much either. Mainly just because, when you think about it, most Megatron figures end up being that shade of gray.

This. Sure his color's a but dull but at least it' not in the level on the DOTM Sideswipe and Soundwave level of bland! Besides we can always use silver paint on him.

I'm actually thinking if Hasbro or Takara will make a Shadowblade repaint of the voyager in the future?
ironhide_warmac
make this guy in ultra class scale. leader class is also needed but i think ultra class will scale just right with voyager optimus prime. and paint the figure as well. mcdonalds toys have more paint application than this one.

I'm not singling you out so please don't think that I am, but I've just seen this kind of comment so many times these past couple of days I've just gotta acknowledge it.

Not everyone can paint, plain and simple. For those few and far between people that can, well that's great. That means that you'll be able to enjoy your figures more once they look more like you want them to. Most of the folks that get these things however CAN'T paint, so not only do they have a figure that they're less than pleased with but then they feel like they're inadequite because they can't "fix" their figures which they shouldn't even have to do in the first place.

Sorry! I didn't mean to come out like that! There's always the Takara version if it gets silver paint right?

Same here. The FE deluxes I have are so awesome. The more I see of the RID toys, the less excited I am for this line. I'm actually considering just buying the FE Voyagers and Cliffjumper, and calling it quits.

But then they have to pay almost double the toy's price for what may or may not be an improvement, and considering he's already smaller that's really hard for most to swallow.

anyone wanna bet the takara version will be show accurate? C'mon hasbro quit being f'in lame.

The robot mode is suitably menacing and looks very close to the animation model (the only exception are the vehicle mode "wings" hanging off the back). He's got a good range of motion too, and can strike plenty of "fear me, puny fleshing, for I. AM. MEGATRON!" supervillain poses.

His transformation is quite involved and unique, and the end product is fairly faithful to the show design. What you make of it depends entirely on how you take this hybrid of Animated Cybertron Mode Megatron and Movie 1 Megatron jet mode designs.

As far as the gimmick goes, the sword deploy on the MechTech is fun, and thanks to the way it is designed you can manually deploy the sword without damaging the mechanism. The light up feature is hit or miss, it looks okay on the sword and the arms, though the only place it really manages the whole "glow with power" thing is the robot mode. Still, having it in the weapon keeps the robot mode clear for simply transforming and being awesome.

All in all, this one is going to be well worth a purchase once he hits retail. Well recommended.

No worries, like I said it wasn't aimed at you, just that topic in general.

But yeah, looks like Takara will be my only option and that's IF he's even painted silver. Time will tell on that one.

More than double actually, which makes taking the plunge on a TakTom one so painful. But as long as I don't HAVE to keep buying imported figs for better accuracy I won't mind doing it this once.
Rob
Anyone notice how the hands and toes are not bronze on those picks?
moreprimeland
Thanks for the nice and clear pics, the others gave us all we needed to know we want this Megatron, but these pics should make the decision much easier for anyone who hasn't made up their mind.
Sprocket
The Deluxe still does it better.

Still, at least we know there'll probably be multiple toys of this design, so we probably won't go wanting for a perfect representation...
