    No offense but it sounds like your knowledge of Beast Wars Megatron and PR is severely lacking. To be clear, I am a BW fan over PR yet I am able to be unbiased and objective, BW Megatron can NOT mass shift to Megazord size, his spark coming from a God means nothing, all sparks and souls come from a God, Magma means nothing, the megazord come out of magma, also Tigerhawk easily defeated Megs, go watch BW episode 50 other victories. Megatron is NOT magical, he cant defeat alien magic, Zedd has taken control of advanced mystical alien technology on numerous occasions, Zedd > Megs, that's facts, since this is a TF site, I'm sure 90% of people will disagree but I'm not one to say one character over another based on biase and popularity etc, yes Megs is cooler, more popular etc but in a 1 on 1 no holds barred match without narrative or plot restrictions, Zedd wins.

    Dinobot looks fierce with his new weapons. Now only he needs a Transmetal Rattrap to ride into battle!

    I used to think legends BA was "good enough", but seeing them side by side like that... wow, we really have come a long way

    Interesting to think that only one of those is the first version of its respective mold.

    Looks like Robot Kingdom just put the Dinobot reissue up for preorder at $220USD. That’s considerably cheaper than BBTS. Anything one would need to know before buying from RK?

    If you're in the US, shipping from RK is horrible. Otherwise, I've heard a lot of good things about them.

    Between shipping cost and speed of shipment(its from Hong Kong) it may just be better to get it from a local store. I would go with anyone besides BBTS, they are notorious for shipping things out late and are usually the last to get their shipments. ToyDojo and TCP are very quick, usually 2 days turnaround.

    That is cool! I wonder if that was intentional on the part of TT?
    It almost seems likely, given that BW Megs ended up bigger than G1 Megs.

    I asked myself that question as well. One thing is for sure: if it has been done on purpose, then that's pure genius.
