    Hello, this is my first post and I just recently purchased some Masterpiece figures - Very excited and waiting for them to arrive.

    I just purchased the Toys R Us exclusive Hasbro version of the MP-10 Optimus Prime.

    I was wondering if there was a Masterpiece version of Megatron that is the same size as MP-10 Prime.

    My understanding is that is that the MP-05 Megatron is the size of MP-04 Prime. So it would probably look weird standing next to MP-10.

    Any information would be great! Thanks

    it looks too big next to mp-10 prime, but looks good with the other decepticon masterpieces (the seekers and the upcoming soundwave). Takara only knows if they plan to rescale him to fit with mp-10. Hasbro will never release him stateside because he looks like a real gun.

    Mp-05 is tied with Hasbro TRU 12' Prime as my crown jewel. I LOVE MP Megatron.

    That's too bad... I'll be patient.

    But while I'm waiting, maybe I'll pick up a MP-01 Optimus Prime to match up against the MP-05 Megatron.

    I like the 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime - I see most of them go for around $200. Is that the best going rate on these?

    i think the takara versions are supposed to be better. Better paint with the long smoke stacks...

    good idea

    In my opinion, mp-05 is the most masterpiece-ish of all Masterpieces. Mp-01 close behind.

    It's MP, so it's G1, so it'll be a gun, so it'll just be Takara :thumb

    You know it. I mean, The Hegemon is OK looking, but for me, Masterpiece Megatron is one of the best MPs if not THE best. Its only rival in terms of complexity and quality and design is the original MP01/20th Prime. I got to play with one of those primes a while ago and that thing is seriously incredible.

    The new MP Prime is amazing..We all know it. But there something about MP01 and MP05 that just underline the "masterpiece" title for those, that I feel, is kinda lost in a generic "masterpiece" name like the new Prime and Sideswipe. They are nice, but do not come close to quality to the older ones.

    MP Megatron gets alot of hate, but I wanted one of those since it was released. a few months ago I did a deal on here to get one, and after actually having it, I just feel its unfounded hate. The legs that people bitch about...I just dont get it..its freakin G1 Megatron!! In his best incarnation EVER. Hegamon just looks off to me, and the pistol mode is toy like. The MP Megatron pistol is WICKED, Yes its huge, (Im a gun collector too) and I just think that if Megatron were to be a pistol He would be a massive pistol like that. It reminds me of the marvel comics where that crook finds Megatron in the ditch and when he holds it..he KNOWS its one of the most powerful weapons devised..THATS Megatron..And that feeling goes well with the MP05 mold. Add to that the Bot mode gives incredible character to a "toy"...Man...I LOOOOooove my MP-05 Megatron.

    Just waiting for MP Megatron seems reasonable to me at this point.

    Also, it's nice to see the MP Megs we have getting some lovin' in thid thread. I still really like mine plus the add-on kit :)

    Yes to this. because it would then also sort of be a Masterpiece TFA Megatron.
