    Somewhat strange thing to ask but has anyone tried putting the mace/flail that came in the centurion pack onto super megatron‘s hand?

    Liking this. Mine arrived tomorrow and I feel like I'll do some mixing and matching if weapons and parts for my own Super Megs variation.

    So I received my Super Megatron today, I really love this figure (really love the original mold of Galvatron, due to the amount I customised it and the fact it was one of my first figures I did major mods too, wrist swivels, shapeways head, modded neck to swivel into body, more coherent cannon mode) I'm still trying to figure out the subtle differences between Super and Ultra Megatron.

    However I did break a part of the cannon, but I want to be clear, this was absolutely my fault, I tried to bend this red piece the wrong way, I don't know why I did this, I was having trouble opening up the black panel on the bottom of his cannon, which is extremely stiff, and I wasn't sure which end it opened up from, so I tried bending the red piece to get it out of the way and it snapped clean off. I'm already in the process of gluing it back together, and using a small piece of plastic to reinforce it, just wanted people to watch out for this.

    Meanwhile, while everyone else is already getting theirs, Hasbro Pulse has pushed back the shipping date on my copy no less than three times, by ever-increasing amounts. Original shipping date was September 20, then it was the 26th, then it was October 9th, and now we're all the way back to November 30th.

    yes, pretty frustrating. Megatron is my Favorite and I can't wait for this guy. I'm not going to overpay for it in the aftermarket in the time being though.

    I received Generation Selects Super Megatron.

    I am happy we got it and I appreciate the effort, but ultimately the TR Galvatron base mold is shit.

    Because of the diminutive size, even as a voyager this figure fails to impress on the shelf.

    To the left: an aircraft. To the right: this thing.

    Clearly you weren't going to be impressed by this to begin with. Why pre-order it in the first place, then, if you knew in advance that it'd be a "diminutive" retool of TR Galvatron?

    at least for me, Super Megatron looks much cooler in pictures than what it is in person.

    Isnt he the same guy who made the thread on overload and bashed it sayong he had limited articulation while praising some older molds from cybertron and earlier? I think they like the older toys and miss that style. Hoping Hasbro returns to that style and size someday for the same price back then... I dunno I'm not a psychologist.


    Also Ohmyprimus has him for 61.59 usd with 17.60 usd shipping or 79.18 total not bad weirdly enough. I await my copy to come.

    108 Singapore dollars amuses me

    This guy is an awesome figure in person or in pictures. But it’s all good if some don’t agree. Carry on.

    I am not sure why you joined this discussion about a toy to start personal attacks against other users, but it's important to at least quote what you have done here.

    No problem. Just focus on the figure. This applies to everyone. Thanks

    Damn, this looks fantastic (and I think the jet mode looks great). Can't wait for mine to ship!

    Yo, that's not really a personal attack whatsoever, don't be so sensitive, but bummer you're disappointed in your figure. I personally kinda dig the TR Galvatron mold and think it fits this Super Megatron perfectly (can't wait for mine to arrive next week), but I'll also add that I will replace TR Galvatron with a Kingdom/SS86 version in a heartbeat.
