    He can holster the guns, but not by design. That's one of the downsides they gave him the guns of the Blurr mold, but the doors are the drift mold, only the swords are designed to go in there. At least I had a left and a right gun, many people had the tabs on the same side of each gun.

    But I would not let that stand and searched him for possible locations to use as holsters. Then I had the idea to use the windows. For transformation you flip the windows in, and if you don't close them fully, you can use them to hold the guns by friction.

    Sadly in Alt mode there's really no place to put the guns. You could put them in his hands, but then the wheels wouldn't touch the ground anymore :lol

    If you're using a phone, you need to rotate to widescreen to see sigs.

    Season 1/2 shelf coming together nicely.

    Now call me crazy but I think I prefer classics over earthrise it's just more... Interesting, I do like the new head sculpts though.

    Also thoughts - I've got a 3rd party Megatron here and akso can't decide if reflector should be legends(3P) or deluxe scale(Siege), does the odd 3rd party not look out of place? Should I go purely official?

    I love that mold aside from the awkward placement of the arm cannon (it always felt like it was on the wrong side of the arm to me). as long as you are cool with the "nerf gun" alt mode, I think it's the best "upgraded" G1 Megatron ever done.
    (much preferred over the awkward Seige and Earthrise molds that are trying too hard to stick a G1 Megatron robot into a tank alt mode at Hasbro's current sad budgetary restraints – I do like the Walmart version with the tasty gunmetal paint)

    The TF United version has an even better deco then Henkei, I always regret not grabbing that.

    I will also keep United Megatron. He's the only with a gun alt mode and him looking more anime clicks well with me.
