    So is Showz better to go with if I'm in the US? Sounds like TCP has bad customer service, which sounds annoying to deal with especially with this Megatron being a third party figure.

    Late to reply, but can also confirm they are legit, have gotten a few orders from them now with great results. No missing or damaged parts, so can't speak to their after-sales support yet, but up front has been great. The only issue I can see is their prices have pretty quickly caught up with most other stores where they're often no cheaper than anyone else much of the time now. On the plus side, their shipping rates are pretty consistent across the board.

    On a somewhat unrelated note, Bombusbee was the name the Devil Saviour movie Devastator team was listed under when they were first announced, so their branding might well be tied to a pretty significant 3P release as well?

    Thank you anyway.
    For now, the price here is the lowest I have seen, although it does not list shipping cost.
    125$ without shipping It is right

    Sorry, i should have worded it much better, their shipping prices usually even out the overall item price to just below most competitors, that was what I completely failed to convey when I mentioned them being pretty consistent. If I add the Megatank Megs to my cart, it only lets me do the $10 preorder, not the full price, but if it's listing it as $125 without shipping, I would imagine they'll likely go with something in the ballpark of $60-75 for shipping to put them at about the same end cost as other sellers right now.

    Hope not. I’m hoping we see Shockwave and others from that opening scene

    I would enjoy a prime from these guys if they made it fun to transform.

    There's a company making a Bumblebee Movie Shockwave already. Looks interesting. But I believe it's a model kit

    What opening scene? Are you talking about the Bumblebee movie. I thought this was a design based off of Metal Slug.

    This is based off of a fan design for what Megatron might have looked like in the BB movie.

    Seriously, when I saw the tank mode, I immediately thought it looked like the Metal Slug tank.

    No, one of them transforms. It's kind of... okay and yet underwhelming. At least that's the impression that I got. The figure just looks off, and the thing is, this figure doesn't even have an alt-mode to really adhere to. They should have spent more time nailing the robot mode since we got to see that on-screen. Whatever alt-mode it has would just be a bonus.

    The Cyberfactory Starscream looks good though. This might be the first figure based on the Bumblebee movie that's not seriously flawed in one way or another. Fingers crossed.
