    Looks nice, vehicle mode is a little unthreatening.

    Very nice. I probably won't get him since I'm going to TRY and limit my animated tformers intake (ie a couple of Dinobots, Earth Megs, etc.) but he's a great representation of Megatron.

    The more pics I see of this figure, the less I like it. I'm all for Megs having a big arm canon again, but this is overkill. Seems like most people who own it also make sure to shoot pics of it at tricky angles that don't show exactly how excessive in size the canon actually is. Add to that, the "alt mode" - if you can even call it that - is a whole lot of nothing... even by alienish looking Cybertroinian mode standards. IMO.

    I'll definitely be sitting tight for the Voyager/Leader sizes of Earth Mode Megs.

    Personally that's what I'd like to. I really don't know why the version of Megs that appears for less then an episode gets the voyager treatment and the permenant Earth mode (I guess) only has a deluxe. Anyone know anything for sure about a larger Earth Megs?

    While his alt mode doesn't seem to be particularly anything, it seems to be more something then movie Megs alt mode, in my opinion.

    Love it, though I wish the face was more of a scowl. I'm getting echoes of Armada Hot Shot here. Also wish it was grey like the show, but ALAS, will still buy it

    I'm fairly certain his earth mode is a voyager as well. And IIRC, that european class listing posted a couple of weeks ago had a leader Megatron listed.

    The only version I have seen so far is from the pics in this thread:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=163644

    And I am pretty sure that's a deluxe.

    I still don't like the design nor for vehicle mode, less for robot modes. After so many new interesting molds now we have this, I definitively don't like it.

    Yes but that is also the Cybertronian mode.

    Megs Earth mode isn't going to be seen until at least episode 14 so Hasbro made two versions of Cyb mode Megs to make sure he had a presence on the shelves I guess.

    Actual "so awesome you'll drool buckets" Earth mode Megatron is going to be a Leader sized toy. That'll be the main one, i.e. the one that Hasbro wants you to buy.
    There could well be a more kid friendly deluxe or voyager version of the Earth mode but we haven't seen or heard anything to indicate that yet.

    I'll be buying this and Leader Megs whenever he comes out but skipping the two pack one.

    Thanks for clearifying, Fort Max. I know I'm getting the two I've seen so far, and a great chance I'll be getting any leader Megs release.

    This is most unforuntuate, for my wallet.

    I have yet to see a figure from this line that I don't want.


    Damnit Hasbro the kids I don't have need to eat! :D

    threatening looking or not, it still does have that huge gun pointing in the front. making it basically a giant helicopter mounted gun...

    i'd say to me it looks just as threatening as a gun or a tank.

    it's just more mobile.

    plus giving megatron some flight, instead of being stuck as a tank, makes him be able to fly along with his cons.

    to me it's very nice choice in vehicle, and i don't see how a giant laser cannon on top of a helicopter, COULD get more threatening... lol

    but to me the toy looks nice, and the cannon is huge... like the classics one, though, it might be too huge, but then again, the original's cannon, was pretty huge too.

    so to me it's just keeping with the flow of things.

    oh, and, this to me is MUCH better then megatron being a gun. :) 

    i hope it's a nice figure, and i really like the read fingers too.

    while i agree with others, that the gray on the other deluxe version IS a better gray, to me, it's still just a color lol.

    I'll get both, regardless of the color. also this gray, more of the color of what G1 was anyways in the series isn't it? he was kind'a this light grayish color. wasn't he?

    and i have to say, i really like the head.
