    What is that big Optimus behind everyone? And mine shipped from TFSource and arrives tomorrow. Coming with ThreeZero TLK Megatron so it’ll be a good day!

    Got to play around with Megatron a bit this weekend. He has undeniable presence and seems to have some points of articulation that other 3K bots lack, such as multiple points of flex for his forearm and wrist. I do find his ankle rocker a bit lacking. The engineering for his knees and elbows are wonderful as expected, but he has some extra engineering and auto moving pieces for his torso “teapot” rocker as well.

    He commands the most impressive presence out of my other 3K bots (Prime, Drift and Tarn) due to his many options for wings, waist blades, shoulder cannons and arm attachments. I love his light up features though I do wish they were as simple to access as Prime’s (unobtrusive switches behind his neck, loved this option).

    It's the end of the month, and there's still nothing.

    So I’ve had this for over a week sitting on my dining room table and I finally got around to taking him out of the box. Really impressed. The joints are nice and tight, maybe a little too tight. But not as loose as Prime. I’ll probably be sharing more pictures with my diorama background with Prime and Tarn. Still have about ten batteries to install.

    I keep fiddling with GundamTron after getting the batteries installed. Such a great and imposing design for Megsy. Something about the wings makes him delicate and ethereal but also very dangerous at the same time. My only complaints so far are picking him up is the pointy edges in the groin area. Fairly sharp on the the thumbs. Also having to pop the panels off to turn on the lights.

    Great pictures! I agree I wish there were simpler ways to toggle the lighting. 3K Prime is perfect in that regard, in my opinion; most of his lights are enabled with two inconspicuous buttons on his upper back, with the knee lights being easier to remove than most of Megatron's tabs. I think it's a bit more annoying with Megatron since he's a little more fiddly with all his wings and sheaths and blades, so I'm always worried I'll knock things around when taking panels off to toggle lights.

    I also wish there was a way to have his classic arm cannon look without using his wing blades; I'd love to see him with both the arm cannon and fully splayed wings (maybe I'd need to buy 2 Megatrons for that look, haha). I also wish he had more of an ankle rocker, but Prime also had that issue. But in overall presence, he's my favorite of the 4 3K figures I own so far.

    Love this figure, quite breathtaking out of the box as usual with Flame Toys. Took some hasty shots of him last night, I keep revisiting the light up features late into the evening because they look so impressive! 75419FA7-8433-47DA-BAAB-F495F3AF2A76.jpeg 9A324A0E-230C-4B14-8F6A-4396FC3D475A.jpeg 2AB2FD01-DECC-4440-A153-072FF95EDE4D.jpeg

    A friend contacted them twice. First they said they'll ship right away and then my friend was told "end of the month". But here we are and still zero shipping notice.

    Did you get yours from them?
