    Shockwave really does look a lot better with the darker colors.

    They look awesome. Though I do hope we also get the animation head on Megs.

    FINALLY! I like the MP Shockwave mold but not the light purple......always like toy colors better......and my wish comes true. AND Chrome Megatron with what looks like a NEW head/face sculpt to match original toy artwork! BOUGHT.

    Yknow, that Megatron toy head looks a lot like the ones on some of the KOs we've seen. Like, pretty much identical. Makes me suspect that this was pretooled all along, and at least one of those KO makers got the molds somehow.

    I would break my no MP rule for that Megatron if he comes with the original head. The figure looks amzing, but he looks like a conehead(and not in a good way.)

    If they addressed the paint scraping issues AND chromed Megatron......fuck.

    TFW when you realize you need to spend $400 on MP figures in 4 minutes.

    Great news though, I wish Takara had released them like this to begin with.

    I wonder if this is going to set a precedent for future releases - eventually a toy accurate deco will be released for all?

    Damn, a lot of MP news outta nowhere! Wondering if this version of Megatron will be more affordable, as I don't feel like paying $220 for one figure. Also, maybe a chance to get a MP Shockie boi.

    (@Veleno, if you do get this new version, I'd be interested in your old one...)
