    Yeah, this is a bit of a stinker to be sure.

    It’s not my thing, I’m just sticking with the metallic. But I don’t see it in quite the negative light most do…

    They should just release those sheets for people to buy if they want that.
    I have zero intrest in toy looks anyway.

    No me too but I did not get the previous metallic version because of the red legs, this is more up my alley but I am afraid that it is only an excuse to get the third Soundwave mold too :cool:

    if these are just waterslide decals that are applied after the fact, then i'm fairly sure it's the same designer as the soundwave ones who MS contracted to make those. the decal sheet will probably be made available for sale later on just like the "limited" soundwave ones are available on his TaoBao storefront now.

    Yeah I agree. Seems that these repaints are always kind of half assed. Cliffjumper, Toy Reflector, and now Toy Megatron. Good at first glance, bad at second.

    Yes and who uses that beside some Die Hard collectors ?.
    Most of us do not and plenty of more people who collect these bots and are not active on forums or FB groups.
    Still do not understand why some of these shops limit them self to Taoboa and not also set up shop on Aliexpress wich is ment for the international market.
    They would make a lot more money, if people have easy acces to the products.

    I was about to ask 'if any of you Eurofolks wants to sell their metallic Megatron, after preordering this one right here, feel free to let me know...'
    Judging by the comments, that ain't gonna happen right? :D

    interesting. I'm 100% newage but pre ordered this new toy deco. I think he looks the best of the 3 MS offerings at the moment (still prefer the less chunky look of agamemnon overall). Either way...if i get it and hate the chest decals and if they're easy to remove then I'll do that... otherwise I like him.

    Are those decals even applied straight out of the box? I vaguely remember a MS post the decals had to be applied, but I'm not 100% certain.

    My bad.. I assumed they were.. If the decals aren't applied then even better. This will be my first magic square bot so I'm not as familiar with how they roll.

    -"Should i get the regular or metallic version?" METALLIC unless you do a fair bit of transforming, than go OG

    -"Whats the differences in plastic?" OG is Nylon, Metallic is mostly ABS

    -"Is the metallic gonna be easier to break?" YES, but it's not a weak feeling toy generally speaking

    "How easy does the paint scratch on the metallic version?" NOT EASY. it's a very sturdy paint app

    "Any tolerance issues with the metallic?" Doesn't come together in alt mode as neatly
