    Man to me the TM2 beast Megs is so good. They have to do the Cryotek repaint. I hope they do at least lol. I think releasing it as a GS would be great and a good way for everyone to be able to get one.

    Hopefully we get a thread on whether or not it’s a real figure when it leaks! (Like way back when with OG Cryotek)

    Honestly, I’d buy a second one if a third party creates a full upgrade kit.

    I’m struggling to reverse image search the original pictures but I have nothing so far. But I’m with you, this is probably the biggest grail concept I have right now.

    My biggest question is over the wings. In the show they become the cloak, makes me wonder how they’d pull it off, Hasbro or otherwise.

    I imagine they would somehow retool them so they fold in a bit more at the top so you can just slide it up in the cloak and harness. I’ve been picturing a big accessory set-up like the Starscream’s throne or an Optimus trailer (but obviously more substantial). Have a stand that has a decently-tall bar sticking up, with an adjustable arm with the harness and robe on the end, maybe with a way to incorporate the dragon tail into it. Almost like a crane or something like that.

    this is probably the best bet, honestly hope this gets released within the next few years. I also hope the dragon mode and robot headsculpt is improved by then.

    Finally got this bad boy, wow, he's great. It blows my mind how well articulated and integrated his dragons arms are.

    Of course I swapped the wing claws into their correct positions, but managed to strip the heads of two of the screws, so only they main ones holding the wing blades in place are screwed on right now, though the left one is also not as sharp as the right one.

    Does anyone know what's the exact size of the screws so that I can order some online?

    Megatron is not that bad for current lower standard. He looks massive in comparison to current small Leader figures but of course looks really small next old Leader figures and WORSE next to the original BW toy but anyway it is a nice figure.

    I recently got him at a nice price, it is recommended around 35-40$, no much more than that. I’m very happy with him.

    I don't think people are quite fair to this figure.
    1.) For current figures, he's rather complex.
    2.) For current figures, his parts count is surprisingly numerous.
    3.) His articulation is quite lovely.
    4.) The DNA upgrade kit makes him even better. (I've spent more on less, trust me.)

    I think $55.00 is fair. He's one of the Leaders I didn't feel a bunch of remorse paying MSRP for. I'm not even a super BW fan, either. That says a lot if it swayed me.

    I do know it was on clearance at Hasbro Pulse (I think), one would be CRAZY to skip him on sale. He's worth the MSRP in my book, he's an absolute steal on clearance.
