    I'm at a very unsure crossroads of whether to order this set or buy the Dream Factory upscaled figure. Or there's the third, expensive option of both.

    Got mine today,

    It came with stress marks on the elbow joint for the arm with hand (not cannon arm) brand new out the box. Not the end of the world but seeing if I can get a replacement.

    Nice looking kit, great colour match. And despite the fact it costs as much as Megatron in the first place, definitely worth it for the arm, cannon and battle damaged head.

    How out of place would these parts look on the battle damaged version? I've been holding out for it because it looks so much better, but I don't think this kit will match, and there's no guarantee that DNA will make a DK09EX.

    I would say pretty out of place but the contrast will work.

    Battle Damaged Megatron is a lot darker in hand. I have both but haven't got time to photo atm so linked the Google images (not mine)

    before you damage the arm further, I recommend cutting off part of a ledge in the cannon.
    a bit of detailing on the side of the arm may snag on it, causing some very noticeable cosmetic damage.
    they shaped it so the parts should slide past each other, but it's a bit of a tight fit.

    Thanks for the heads up, it's the other arm that's the issue but will look at the cannon before using it.

    there is only 1 arm, the cannon is an attachment for the replacement arm.

    I would've liked to see this scene in one of the movies:

    Apologies and thanks. Looks like we mean the same thing I should have used the word 'part' rather than other arm.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH. I was struggling to get the damn cannon on. After getting rid of that piece, it slips on and off super easily now. I see what they were going for, but the thing is secure enough as is. If you buy this kit, do yourself a favor and just shave off that lip all together

    I got mine today too. Overall it's a great addition. The elbow joint on the new arm was alarmingly tight, so I took it apart and shaved down the inside of the big round part.

    I like how the blade slides out instead of flipping, but it's kind of short. Thinking of adapting the original blade onto the sliding part for more length.

    Can someone put picture on here if him with the pieces on in bot mode?
    I really wanna see how close it matches in color with the plastic on Megs.

    funny thing:
    when I first got the set I took a close look at the new arm, and I noticed it didn't match the exact shade of grey of the upper arm.
    then I looked at the original arm, and I saw the exact same color difference.

    so the color accuracy is on par with the original parts.

    That's was basically the only thing I was concerned about so based on what you all say, maybe I'll order now!

    I didn't like how the front wings forced the original gray panels on the front treads to sit up slightly, so I did some trimming:

    They stay nice and low now, I like it.
