    So they went with the ugly chrome version instead of the final battle version. What a terrible choice.

    I'd have bought this right away if it were the severed Prime arm, but as is, I'm not sure if it's worth it to me. :(

    Christ... I was wanting them to color match the Final Battle Megatron. :( 

    And they chromed the arms? And the blades?! Brilliant design there, chroming friction-sliding parts... I'm not sure if I should cancel this from my TFsource stack, since I actually have Darkness Megatron to put this upgrade set on. >_>

    hmm I hadn't actually noticed that they made the arms chrome colored...now they just need to do a chrome leg kit.

    Hopefully they'll make an AM-33...I'd buy if they did.

    Looks great! I'm definitely in for the Hasbro Megs version. Still hoping they make an AM-33 version. Almost want to get the AM-15 version for that awesome chromed head.

    Same. I surmise that the AM-33 version may have been delayed to design a new and more accurate Sentinel Prime arm. At least, that's my hope, anyway. The other 3 versions look cool but I'm actually fine with my custom Megatrons. Just need an upgrade kit for AM-33 to make a great toy even better.

    I kind of wish they would have made an entirely new figure that fixes the shoulder pegs, the shoulder spikes, and the loose hips.

    But like everyone else, I am surprised at how good this kit does look.

    It's a fantastic kit, from what the video shows. I'm definitely in, now. I like the sliding sword, especially. However, the back piece, I'll leave it out in vehicle mode and use the Hasbro cannon because the kit weapon only looks good in robot mode.

    This does help improve the PRID Megatron toy quite a bit. :)  If I get the time I may buy this.

    Now that we see the name of this toy on the box, shouldn't the title of the thread change?

    I have this kit and it makes my Megatron look so much better, I have one problem though the right hand is broken, the little tabs that hold it together broke and I would like to know how I get a replacement hand. It's the hand on his cannon arm, any help would be greatly appreciated

    The kit is very nice but the weak link is the hand. it's just poorly designed and won't stay tight because the hand itself splits in half even if you thicken the ball joint. Still, a significant improvement. I like the sliding sword but I like the attachable one even better. Not sure if u like the new or original head better though. I hope they make a final battle version that includes the unnamed crimes arm as well as an original Megatron arm and canon what was the good brushed silver paint job. I liked my standard set enough to buy one for the takara version as well. I kind of wish they were substantially cheaper though, like closer to 20 bucks. As it is, the price is higher than the actual retail value of the toy. Its sole saving grace is how difficult it is to find Prime Megatron on the aftermarket, they haven't actually cost $20 for a while. But it's still a 30 something dollars add on for a $20 toy
