    The gold makes him look like an antique gun and not in a good way :lol 

    I thought the first MP-05 was the L edition :lol

    Welp, he already had to deal with Cosmic Rust.

    Might as well add Gold Plastic Syndrome to his list of ailments.

    Damn those sticks always get me whenever I see a pic. I can never look away. They could color this highlighter yellow and I'd still focus on those chicken legs.

    Is this the Linkin Park version - looks just as good as their Soundwave.

    That is to say, it looks crap

    Or you could stand him next to that 3P Beachcomber and call it "Golden Lagoon" Megatron.

    They left the face grey? This gets more bizarre by the moment.

    It looks pretty nice. If i didn't already have one i would be tempted. But then again this particular mold of megatron was never the best figure around.

    True... Not taking chances... 99% sure I'll get Gladius the 3p megatron. Looks awesome, got a decent head sculpt, and allows me to move on with my collection.

    I really liked that Megatron was gold in flashbacks to before the war so this is nice if I find it on discount..... and I had a million dollars.

    What are the legal issues with making an all-new MP Megatron? Because I really don't want this one.

    Head swap with the grey one from Mp Megs, ditch the cannon and Con logo, and boom! MP Emirate Xaaron!

    ... But I hate this figure. Those lanky legs are not Megatron. It's like they phoned this one in. I would have my G1 Megs on display sooner than this, he has more character despite his age and giant triggerwang.

    Legal as in, toy gun laws? There are none, if that's what you're referring to.

    (You'll see some people on here speculate that there's no MP Megs V2 because supposedly Hasbro is telling Takara not to because they won't be able to release it due to US toy gun laws...but unless Takara actually comes out and confirms that Hasbro can veto their character selections, then that's just bullshit speculation with no basis in fact.)

    It should be stated since the news post is misleading, no GPS to be had here, obviously. Interesting news day.

    He looks very sharp. Bring on the MP-25 announcement.
