    Uh-oh. I was flipping up the chest panel from Ultra Megatron that produces the mini tank treads but the panel was really stiff.

    I heard a snap and I think I see a stress mark. How do you guys deal with stress marks? Something to do with hot air?

    Hot air from a hair dryer or hot water can sometimes remove it lessen them. Just be careful not to go too hot to warp it somehow (especially with clear parts). Just start slow with heat from a hair dryer and you will probably be fine.

    A hair dryer will remove the visible mark, but the plastic integrity will still be weaker than the surrounding plastic, so be mindful. It should be fine long term as long as you’re careful

    As we all know he doesn't come with an energy mace... Lucky for me my girlfriend had a translucent purple pineapple purse with her Barbie stuff.

    You can just hear Fred Tatasciore when you see the Super Megatron mold (and that ties into my thoughts that he'd be an excellent voice cast as a new Galvatron, tee hee).

    Nice. Can you do a similar photo with Siege and Earthrise Optimus and Star Convoy?

    Finally opened Super Megatron today. He's great. Such a nice presence, and feels pretty tight and sturdy (more so than Galvatron did). I love the way the wings fold up against his back, and the swiveling double wings on the shoulders. They're both super satisfying.

    Really itching for a Generations Sky Garry and Grandus now.

    Also, man, if they don't release a new Shattered Glass Megatron from this mold, what're we even doing here?

    I’d be okay with that as well, but I actually think this mold would be a better fit (obviously guessing at what the Kingdom version will look like here). This mold still has the Galvatron DNA in there like Energon/SG Megatron did, but it also has the flying mode. Plus it just cuts an awfully heroic silhouette that I think would suit SG Megatron nicely.

    Got mine in today from Mandarake. Definitely feels better than my TR Galvatron.

    I’m hoping for one! I love SG Megatron and the original Bot it was based on, Energon Megatron/Galvatron, hopefully a new version isnt far off.

    Finally opened my Super Megatron on Sunday. I got some minor red sploshing on his left forearm and a loose left hip pin but he's a beaut. Scared as hell when I flipped his face up to swivel out the red gem (my visual preference) but I don't have to ever touch his face again now. It's nice going back to a slightly beefier size of Voyager, and he's an absolute plank when you retract his shoulder cannons and wings.

    His right wing has trouble moving past a certain point if I want to fan mode him to look like his legacy (?) artwork, but I doubt I'll be doing that too often.
