Seriously, i never expect UM-03 Megatron to be so great looking & just look at the size for all these Ultimetal, sure rock big time.
Decided not to get megatron and will be selling my UM-01 Optimus if anyone is interested.
Just sent my payment for Ultimetal Megatron. It took the same amount of time to release that it took my daughter to go from early elementary school to driving solo. It also marks the end of my transformers collecting, I swore if they released it I was done. Anything that doesn't fit in the collection room is getting sold.
Finally got around to painting Prime’s eyes
Edit. I would have waited and eternity for this.
Had this been released 100 years ago as initially announced, I'd have gotten it. That time when idealized versions of TFs were the rage is over for me, and cartoon accuracy triumphs over everything IMO.
Sold my UM Prime and never looked back. If they were to do cartoon representations of these, maybe I'll reconsider. But honestly, MP44 and MP36 seem to be the best we'll ever get, they are also a million dollars less and they transform.
A little too late, AT.
got mine in from TCP the first thing I did was at a panel line to the mouth cuz he NEEDS it
Anyone having problems with the electronics? Mine came in today and neither the Fusion Cannon or the body electronics work. Tried new batteries and all. Absolutely no signal from the remote. Optimus still works great to this day.
The remote required a pair of batteries found nowhere in the instructions.
This may also sound silly but the chest power switch works the opposite of how its marked.
My instructions showed the remote as needing LR-44 Batteries pretty straightforward in the picture spread but with the chest switch... so "on" is to the viewer's right not left?
I might be confusing something else with the instructions. But the switch is on when flipped to the right when facing Megatron. There was something weird with him that he wasnt working at first, it was a remote/switch combo. Maybe I had the batteries backwards too?
Ok cool. I jtook another sstab at it and tried all button combos and nada. The Fusion cannon light isn't working, and he's missing a magnet on the side of his torso that those oblique plates stick to. Not to mention a nick on one of the face plates.
Return exchange it is.
The QC on this isn’t as good as Optimus
There are things I like better on Megatron but there ar etchings I like better on Optimus
my back waist plate does not stay on and the speaker is a MAJOR downgrade from Optimus
It’s not very loud and very tinny
But he looks damn good
Wow, the silver finish just look awesome on this premium price of this UM-03 Megatron.
That's a bummer. At this price point it needs to be 100%. Now I have to check my fusion cannon. Never put batteries in it. Mine has a poorly painted chest plate but I don't really mind it.
Following up to see how your cannon was.
Just checking in on this and all the defective units that were shipped out. New year is approaching, never got the fix for my cannon and neither did my friend. I believe Kuma got his quickly. I can only recommend avoiding this piece if you are on the fence. This and my defective Premium Prime has halted my transformers collecting. Too many high dollar pieces not meeting QC lately for me.
Regarding your Premium Prime, did you reach out to [email protected]?
