    So then maybe TFSource does have a glitch in their system. I don’t know.

    I wonder why it’s taking so long for an upgrade kit to come out. It’s not really gonna be February right?

    They’re really struggling to match the paint with the figure.

    Remember when this was estimated to arrive in October? *laughing that gradually becomes crying* Why can’t I just make my Megatron look good before 2019? :cry

    Hope this still hits. Prefer the smaller scale.

    emgo reviewed the black mamba version, and it definitely didn't copy this kit.
    most noticeably they didn't include the arm cannon, instead opting to keep the original cannon arm.
    this means black mamba megatron needs to swap arms the way TLK bumblebee did to go between cannon and hand, while this kit has a cannon attachment for the replacement hand-arm allowing you to swap between hand and cannon the way MPM-7 bumblebee does it.

    That’s all it has going for it at this point, considering that the others are out or almost out, have much better paint jobs, scale with MPMs or KOs, light up, and/or have back thrusters. The only reason I want this anymore is because I don’t have enough cash for so many MPs, it scales with SS, and I already preordered it. But this is super ridiculous that it’s a dang upgrade kit that was estimated for October of last year, and here we are in January 2019 with no updates and nothing to go off of besides the “expected arrival date” on TFSource that has failed us multiple times before. Maybe for an MP this should be expected, but not for an upgrade kit for a Voyager figure.

    I bought this for $12.99 at Target. I'm probably going to grab this kit.

    Aw nice! Hopefully that means we'll be seeing the set in the near future, my Megatron needs his other arm!

    Now for a Damaged Megatron version. With an undamaged face as the preorder incentive.

    This experience really has just left a sour taste in my mouth. This was announced in July of last year and expected for October. It’s February 2019, and we’re closer to July of this year than the announcement.

    All of us are getting the extra head, right? What were the requirements for that again?
