    Damn, that is a small number. Would like to have this one in my classics shelf. A great representation of Classics RID/TM2 Megatron!

    I still buy PE version for my MP shelf.

    Fans Hobby has updated their fb page with some pictures and it looks much better than the pics from their weibo page.

    I do remember reading they would release a retail version as well (so I assume with different colors..?).

    See? Wait for the retail version. Hopefully the only difference between the convention and retail versions is that little SGC tattoo.

    A 3rd party convention exclusive figure to honor a "3rd party" Botcon exclusive figure.

    What a time to be alive.

    whew...okay that's good to hear..

    i was gonna say...only 300 and a con exclusive...they could print money with this thing if it was released on a bigger run.

    i sure as hell want one

    hell i'd even take a deathsaurus version...in fact i'd almost prefer a deathsaurus version

    Nice BW TM2 Megs colors, but with two versions of the TR toy, a RID Deluxe and a Legion, I kinda doubt many people would still be buying the third party ones. I fully expect Hasbro to do a proper Repugnus and Grotusque later - after all, how many toylines from Generations to Titans Return it took for us to get all three Insecticons?

    So I was looking at the bot mode pics thinking, "Yeah, kinda blocky but pretty cool. Might get this if dragon mode is really great."
    Got to the dragon mode pics and thought- "Nope."

    I'm guessing the retain version will have less faces with it. I can't imagine them skimping on the paint apps, oh and the convention logo removed.
