    The hips are probably constructed like Jetfires where there is a swivel at the bottom of a ball joint seated at the very top of the leg rather than the thigh cut joint we're used to seeing on most TFs these days. I find it hard to imaging they didn't include a swivel of some sort.

    Looking at it, it might have a slightly darker silver paint than the Hasbro version, but too difficult to say for sure.

    Is it me or do his small guns in tank mode combine to form his robot mode pistol? That's pretty awesome. Sorry if it's old news.

    They do indeed and likely will be able to be used individually too.

    Question. Is CW Megatron a Combiner? I keep thinking about his plan for IDW Devastator.

    Unlikely, he appears to be leader class standalone figure. I think he will be package within Combiner Wars for higher visibility.

    as g1 megatron, i think this thing looks horrible.

    His robot mode for G1 Megatron looks superb imo. Why do you think it looks horrible?

    The irony of this mold is that it fits G2 Megatron more than it does G1 and Armada Megatron.

    Are we all looking at the same toy? Aside from him being a tank and not a pistol, how can anyone say that this sucks as a modern take on G1 Megatron? Sometimes, I just don't know....

    It seems your display is wrong calibrated. You tinted the picture blue.

    It's a perfect G1 Megatron. I just wanted a G1 Megatron from IDW comics and not the original G1 Megatron :( 

    Also leader is too large :(

    I think it looks great, but yeah too large for my boys collection. Just doesnt fit. which is sad because again it looks great. Passed on MP ultra magnus because it was just too big for my boys collection and it looks like I will be passing on this one too

    sorry, speaking about the figure i dont complain about the look of it, my problem is the articulation for example the cannon if it would restrict or no the articulation of the arm we have never seen a shot of that arm bended , and like someone else say the leg articulation, he looks good but he is going to be almost a statue, about the hips if you looks closely to the photos the tipe of articulation is diferrent to the one on jetfire

    Is it just me, or would the addition of a cape really make this guy shine?

    I haven't really been following the news on this guy, so maybe this has been asked, but is it possible that he has working tank treads? It almost looks that way.

    ;) 

    Hmm, aye, I'm sure I remember them saying he would, when they first unveiled him. That'd certainly explain why his knees are so high, as well.

    Ohhhhhhhhh, I getcha. Yup, the amount of arm bend Megatron has will depend on how far you can swing his fusion cannon out of the way. My gut instinct is that the Takara pics show the maximum, er, cannon-swingage, but as long as it doesn't clash with the shoulder assemblies, the joints look like you'll get 90 degrees of bend out of them.

    To be honest, I know what ye mean. I was utterly convinced Megsy had no thigh swivels till I saw the newest batch of pics, purely because it seems to be an almost completely enclosed hip-joint/thigh-swivel, something that I can't remember ever seeing before. I kinda like it, too, 'cos he has full leg articulation, but without the split across the leg halfway up. Gives him nice clean lines, so it does. :D 

    ETA:
    Forgot to say: I don't have Jetfire either, but from what I've seen in reviews, his hip joints are double hinges (one in the crotch for forward and back, one in the top of the hip for side to side), then that hip assembly attaches to the rest of the thigh with the ol' swivel. Megatron looks like he'll be the same, only with the hip assembly more enclosed. That's what was throwing me off when we saw the first pics of him.
