    Honestly as much as I like Siege Megatron I hope we get another go. Maybe G2 Megatron could have his own mold.
    Wild idea I know. Maybe Leader Megatron, upgrades from voyager to Leader G2 Megatron. Be neat if the Voyager was an Ospray.

    Legends G2 Megatron is, in my opinion, a perfect Archforce. I love all of the Headmasters in TR...

    To me the defining characteristic of G2 Megatron/Archforce (and even the green G2 Megatron, my favorite Megatron) is the shoulder cannon. Siege Megatron has no way to connect the cannon to the shoulder like that.
    We'd really need a better mold to get that, though.

    Without using an adaptor, he doesn't. And that looks funny if you don't modify the gun by removing the sword part.

    funny looking or not, siege megatron has a 5mm port on each shoulder, so in theory you could get a serviceable g2 megatron or archforce out of it.

    are you seriously going to be that pedantic about it? ok, lets be pedantic. in the following two images you can see that the shoulder cannon extends well beyond megatrons shoulder, dare i say all the way to his back. also, technically speaking none of the megatrons attach the cannon to the shoulder, it sits on their "collar bone" area. if they plugged in to the shoulder then they would either be sitting on top of or outside of the arm

    he is not, but neither am i. if he wants to be pedantic, no g2 megatron has a shoulder cannon, its a collar bone cannon. a shoulder cannon would sit on top of the arm or on the outside of the top of the arm, not next to his head

    I'm probably in the minority here, but I don't really mind if a figure is 100% accurate or not.
    I've looked at the pictures of the (cancelled) original G2 Arctic Camo Megatron, and of the Selects version.
    You can partially duplicate the look of the original toy just by plugging the fusion cannon into the shoulder.

    And I'm perfectly fine with that fact. There's no need to be a perfectionist over these figures, they work with what they have.

    Yes. But also I don't need (or want) my Megatron toys to have shoulder cannons. If that's what you like and the over the collar bone backpack mounted cannon works for you, go for it and enjoy.

    He’s Here! I’ve got him all kitted out and ready for battle.

    The plastic feels like the Jazz release to me and the tolerance is about the same.
    Mine has a bit of loose hips but nothing terrible.

    On to the next release, hopefully Redwing.

    Ahhh, fraggit. I'm going to order Swoop tomorrow.
    I'm still on the fence with Megs.
    I have Smokey preordered.
    If Redwing comes to fruition, I'll preorder.
    Ricochet is sitting in front of me :D 

    You know, I really was trying to streamline which Transformers lines I'd buy.
    I had it down to MP/MPM and Siege, but this Generations line was too nice to pass up.

    Erhm...Seriously....I didnt mean to start an arguement over it.
    BUT the siege lines Megs looks the better part for Archforce. He is at least designed to be a tank first and foremost. But to each their own.
