    I don't like the face and it doesn't Transform. So no.

    Looks like Michael Jackson nose to me. Megatron has had way to many plastic surgeries.

    They should try and lower the price on these guys to like 500 or 600 and then do one every six months. A battle damaged prime would be awesome. I saw some pictures but didn't know what I was looking at

    It looks ok I guess, not my cup of tea.

    I don't think that's cost effective at the moment.

    Confused now, is UM-03 Megatron or Ultra Magnus?

    When you look at this picture it says UM-03:

    I ordered the 3A Optimus so it would be cool for this guy to be fighting him.

    How bout this line is dead so I guess never, Its no surprise considering the cost of these guys, but I don't know, for me this line is dead and I don't think we will see anything else, which sucks because Megatron looked cool, but then there is 3A and Comicave doing stuff and Oritoys. Which is all way way cheaper and 3A stuff has gotten pretty good reviews.

    Are you sure the line is dead? All of the figures sold out basically... there are only a couple of retailers that still have it in stock... I think The Chosen Prime still does...

    I believe that, as with their Optimus Prime that took some 2-3 years to deliver, these guys just have a long lead time... they may also be releasing figures under a different and more recognized brand too so they may only have limited time to dedicate to this project (and obvious other Fewture figures)... that's my theory and not really based on anything other than hope lol... My Optimus needs a Megatron to pull off what I wanted to pull off lol...

    I also believe this line is not dead. I just don't understand why it takes them so ridiculously long to put out a product. I mean, um01 was a year late!!

    Also, they need to improve on their qc. Many people had their um01 shipped with leds not working, voicebox not working. Mines after many hours of making op talk, the head started to slowly dip down as the mouth moves.

    This is Fewture, as in few releases teased from far far in the future. This is their modus operandi. You need to change your time scale to years man.....years......

    In a way that's not so bad... given the high cost of these figures, it helps us build our funds to make the next purchase lol!

    Yeah but you don't have to start saving till preorders are announced with pictures of a finished prototype. Then you have 12-24 months.

    Well, I guess now I'm informed about how long it takes for Fewture to do stuff. I also hope its not dead. I'll just forget about it then and if something happens it does. I know all the Ultimetal Optimus Primes sold out but that doesn't mean they are gonna keep going. The Mezco supposedly dropped Mortal Kombat X even thought it sold well, which totally sucks. Well I do hope they come out with some stuff, even if they did one figure every six months would be good.The battle damaged Prime looked awesome

    I'm still hoping we see a G1 Megatron from this line.

    Tag Hobby reported last year @ ToySoul showing a Battle Damaged Prime. Now I dont know why they would showcase a new version if the line was dead.

    Scroll down to bottom to see the Battle Damaged version of Optimus.
    TAG Hobby ยป [????] 2015?12?18?-20? TOY SOUL 2015?? ? ACTION TOYS??

    The company Fewture itself has an ongoing line of Die Cast robots. The worked with Action Toys to come up with the Ultimetal line.

    The problem with Action Toys is they dont have any social media presence. All we can rely on are these toy shows that come up each year for information.
