    What is what? Red dragon homages the botcon 2016 megatron that uses the rid01 megatron body. The botcon megatron has run up to $400 on eBay whereas red dragon is $120 for the retail version and $220 for the convention version

    They initially sold for $89 at BotCon 2016, but I see they sold for $250+ on ebay recently.

    I never heard of Red Dragon I will look into it. I know about the Botcon Rid one. Is that the official toy?

    AND probably easier to come by for Europeans.
    Though it sucks this version comes with only one fist.
    I'd rather have gone without the flame effects.

    So the retail release has only one head, instead of three...

    namely, the left one. Am I wrong in stating that the reuse of those lips almost feels KFC like (only these lips don't look all that great)?

    I might have jumped on this if we atleast got the centre face.

    Honestly, I think the middle face looks the worst. What's with the big lips? If they were to include only one face, I would have preferred the angry face as it looks the most like an expression Megatron would have had in the show. Although the one on the left is OK even if it's only a neutral/pursed lips face.

    I'm surprised they didn't do a smiling/smirking face. That was his most popular expression. What with all the "Yes"'s and whatnot.

    I have no idea since I just pulled it out and shot that pic really quick. Looking your pic though, I know the fade on your wings seems to be quite a bit different than mine since the ones on mine are primarily orange and then fade to dark at the tips.

    yea, then id bet money on that being the retail version, mine is the sgc one which starts as translucent red and fades to yellow at the tips, the orange looks good!
