    I remember reading there were 2 sizes of this figure, one larger than the other. What is the name/description of the larger of the 2?

    (also if you have one for sale, PM me)

    The larger one is the leader class Energon Megatron. The smaller verison was a two-pack with Energon Optimus Prime (this was voyager sized). Hope that helps you out, bro. What custom do you plan on doing with it, if you don't me asking?

    I had one of each left not long ago, but JAF picked them both up from me through that old sale thread of mine.

    I'm actually doing a G1 style Galvatron....but with some modifications so he suits up size-wise with the MP line.

    Thanks for the info. Just to be certain...are there color differences between the 2? I have this figure, but used the head lol...so I need to grab another one.

    The bigger one is an ultra class figure that was available in the states as a single pack. The smaller one was only available in the states in a multipack with a powerlinx prime. Hope that helps.

    The only real color differences are the shoulder cannons being a darker "clear" green than the smaller version, as well as the landing gear on the legs (and some slight lighter colors to the orange on the legs). I believe the heads were painted a different color (just a lighter shade on the smaller one and some of the plastic was molded in a lighter shade). Overall, they look pretty damn similar. (I used the Voyager version for my Galvatron custom, for reference).

    Here ya go:

    Energon Megatron [Leader]

    Energon Megatron [Voyager]

    Can't wait to see what you do, man.

    I already snagged one on ebay for $20...
    like I mentioned, I have the headless one here, so I am going to mod up the legs and waist to give him about 2 more inches in height. The mods won't effect the alt mode (canon) either.

    Sounds cool, Mike. It will be cool to see how the mods work out (that figure could definitely benefit from it).
