    I see Megatron finally figured out how to make a clone of dinobot that can transform!

    From our current take on BW Scale, a potential MP TM2 Megatron would actually be about a head larger than this fellow in bot-mode.

    Screencaps from JobbytheHong's excellent review:

    A head taller and probably 3 times more expensive.
    We’re likely 20 years away from them considering making TM2 Megs anyways so Winged Dragon will more than suffice until then.

    I wasn't around for Beast Wars, nor did I have Beast wars toys, but damn that is almost tempting to actually get because of the review.

    We really do need more dragon transformers characters.

    Beast WARS is the best written TF series. Sadly the CGI is a bit dated, but can hold up decently. If you haven't seen it I recommend watching.

    Like playing an old video game, though, once you're immersed in the world and the story, you stop noticing how the CGI looks.

    Personally thought prime was the best of the TF shows but beast wars was pretty good. I will forever watch that series for the megatron moments. (Yessss)

    2nd batch is meant to come out in December I believe so might be worth just holding out for another month.

    I canceled my original preorder but after seeing that review I’m sold. Whats the best plan? Order now? Or wait for the second run in a few months?

    So... I've finally got to open mine, and he has two right metatarsi, but all the claws are all right. I'm going to ask for replacements anyway. Sorry, but this is just unacceptable.

    Seeing a lot of reports of misassembled feet, toes/bone protrusions that fall off and paint chipping. While I imagine that it's frustrating to receive a $200+ item with faulty QC, I can only imagine the nightmare folks are going to be put through waiting to obtain replacement parts from China, with as long as this "customs processing" has taken. Hopefully, mine hasn't gotten lost and turns up soon. Both China Post and USPS say that it's not currently in their systems and they don't know where my package is but I assume that could just mean that customs is currently in possession of it and it hasn't yet been cleared. Trying my best not to stress over a potentially lost package, lol.

    Ok, so Show.Z's said that they're gonna contact the manufacturer. I'm curious to see what they're going to do. There are no visible screws in the leg itself (and I have checked underneath the admittedly pretty loose calf cover), so I assume that due to striving for a perfect look everything in the damn thing is glued. It might be possible to disassemble the crotch and replace the whole limb at the hip, but quite frankly I'm scared to verify this.

    Oof- I'm sorry to hear that, man. Hopefully they'll be able to work out an easy fix for his foot.

    To those of you who ordered yours through ShowZStore and have had your tracking recently update, when did you place your orders and when were they shipped out? I ask because I purchased mine on the 12th of October. Mine's status updated around consistently around China and then was finally changed to "Airplane Departure" on the 16th, but there haven't been any tracking updates since. It's been listed as "In Transit" for about 22 days, now.

    Anytime there is a long pause after airplane departure, it’s stuck in customs. So at this point who knows when it’ll be out, all up to the customs overlords
