    I like 'bot form - looks awesome. Battle damage amusing. Alt mode is a bit "panelly", and I'd hope they could do him in an MP-05 finish (silver/grey metallic).

    My main 'concern' is that stock - it looks like it's telescopic, but wont be able to do much, like say...form his massive gun/cannon thing that the scope/barrel/stock did in G1?

    EDIT : His arm cannon/scope is definitely telescopic - it's shorter "on arm" than in gun mode.

    I'm guessing about 1/3 of the price I originally paid, if I'm lucky.

    YES!!!!!!!!! That looks so awesome. Obviously not 300% perfection but so, so great. I'm all in.

    I'm sure he will come with toy accurate symbols like Shockwave. If not, there is always reprolables. They are just showing it off with them funny ass toon decepticon insignias. Which I really don't like.

    *slow claps*

    This is better than the original in every fucking way. Absolutely LOVE that they have battle damage chest and head pieces, but that happy face is so hysterical looking in a good way I don't think I could ever display him for long in any other face.

    Well done Takara!

    Looks good but I'm not totally blown away (at least not yet). Side view looks great but from the front he looks like he suffers from the same thing Ironhide did (high waist / short torso). I'm hoping its just the angle they took the pic from though.

    Needing reprolabels on an MP is a travesty.

    I get that many like them for that extra bit of toy accuracy but other than that it's unacceptable IMHO.

    I'm glad this is confirmed and we are finally getting a new Megatron. I had always held off on getting the old one.

    Cool that's it's official, though I wish that it cleaned up a bit better in both modes. The back is a bit horrendous, yes I know you don't display bot mode with the back showing ... the barrel in bot mode also looks to be way out to the right ... and the top of the torso o_O  ... it's nice that it seems to have replaceable chest piece like Inferno /Grapple for that battle damaged look from the movie. I hope that it's still getting tweaks and it's not the final version yet.

    Personally atm I think Apollyon, Mightron and Despotron look better ... but I'll prob end up getting it cos it's official ...it's definitely along the lines of the toon look that TT seem to be leaning towards with their MP line now

    To quote the bot himself, "I would have waited an eternity for this."

    The leaked prototype photos showed the stock and barrel combining into a stand in bot mode.

    So his arm cannon is telescopic. Good stuff. Also reaaaaally loving the head sculpts. They captured his cartoon essence to a T!

    Hoping he comes with a chest plate with the regular Decepticon symbol, though. Also hoping the gun mode symbol(s) is optional. Would prefer a gun mode without.

    Well reprolables are a option. I prefer the tampos.

    Looks like a hot mess to me. The gun body isn't even straight.

    If the chest panel is interchangeable there may three of them: Toy symbol, toon symbol, toon symbol w/ damage.

    looks good but those face sculpts...looks like grandpa forgot to put his teeth in. seriously they look really off and weird. just a giant gaping hole of a mouth. hopefully there's missing 'teeth' or something because that just looks bad.
