    Holy hell, it looks magnificent! Thank goodness it doesn’t transform or I’d be broke.

    Good grief, I'd have to burn my fingerprints off before handling that!

    Dang! So close to being something I'd love to have, but misses the mark by having the lower legs chromed too. Megatron is actually supposed to be chrome. There was no way to animate that in the 80s, so in the G1 toon he looked gray and white with lines for an attempted shimmering metal effect sometimes. I prefer most toys of Megatron have that light gray toon look, or silver, but this is really beautiful. Ruined (for me) by the inaccurate leg chrome placement.

    I want a battle damaged Megs to pair up with my battle damaged Prime, but not with that ugly chrome.

    Un-chrome it, make the TT MP Megs v2 look like this and you\'ve got another TT figure added to my collection.

    Yes, as noted this is Tetsujin 28, but more importantly friend, you are looking upon that which is arguably the earliest ancestor of our beloved hobby!

    Any how, as for this Megatron....whoooweee, that there is some purdy looking chrome! I'm not familiar with this line but that figure is gorgeous! If we could one day get an MP Megatron this 'metalicized!'

    I am not interested in this in the slightest, but I appreciate the balls for a designer (or group of designers) to go "fuck it, he's gonna be 90% chrome".

    Hmm. So five years later and it’s finished, yet it seems they didn’t fix the face.

    Should be shipped with a pair of sunglasses so you don\'t go blind from the gleam off the chrome.
