    I would love to display this with Leader Starscream and the other Leader Seekers, and Titan Returns Soundwave!

    As I said in the other thread - really want to like this guy, but the proportions are just off. Think it's mainly because of the shoulders being too low. The cannon also looks like it may be too short or something. He just looks a bit awkward and "off" overall.

    Which is a shame, because this is one of my favorite Megatron designs ever and I really like the way their Prime looks. Hopefully they'll be able to fix up some of the issues but it may be too late for that. :(

    Looks really good, but he definitely needs a bigger fusion cannon. Or wait, did the fusion cannon have a different name when he was in this body? I... don't remember.

    ...

    What I'm trying to say is that I wish he had a bigger gun.

    I'm glad we're finally getting a 3rd party figure of bomber Megatron. That's the one design that deserves to have a larger figure then what we got in Generations some years ago. Hopefully he won't end up being too big so if he's around the size of MP10 I'll be fine with it.

    Interesting, do you guys have a good reference pic to how you prefer him to look? I've barely kept up with IDW so this is pretty foreign to me.

    I feel the same, but I think his actual shoulders are in the correct spot—it's the pauldrons that sit too low.

    For me, the issue is that the legs seem slightly too short. Maybe I'm imagining things. But he doesn't seem as sleek as he was in the comics.

    I also hope this is taller than their Prime, but I can't tell. This is probably the best bomber Megs we'll get for the foreseeable future, but idk.

    Can the community get in touch with Generation Toy and see if there's any possible remolding to be done? I doubt it but

    He came up to Gigapower Grassor's chest, so he seems to be big.

    See, in that last picture Recon posted, look how long his legs are in relation to his body. That's how the proportions should look, but this doesn't

    Just googling "stealth bomber Megatron" will bring up lots of pics, like the ones people have posted.

    And honestly, despite being way too small and having some weird construction issues, the official Deluxe was pretty on-point, proportion wise.

    The pauldrons are certainly part of it, but in the pics I've seen the actual shoulder joints themselves seem a bit unnaturally low as well.
