    I love how the gun mode looks but the tan head is a little off putting.... saying that I know I'll get one of these and I know I'll be happy with ether.

    As beautiful and glorious as this megatron is I'm gonna pass.

    Why? Well because the reason is blatantly obvious. somebody will KO it and the KO will be of a Superior Quality.

    I also hate how Takara made the plastic look aged like it's from a Smoker's Home.

    It was necessary to release a separate head from Marvel.

    And of course for the most promo version!

    Got some bad news for you. The KO companies have had access to these toy accurate parts from the beginning (cause yah know they stole the cad models), and there has yet to be a toy accurate KO megs that looks like this.

    Spends 30 years wishing for screen accurate Transformers.
    Finally gets them.
    Spends hundreds of dollars on a redeco back to the toy version.

    I think this fanbase is officially loco :p

    That beige you guys are referring too is actually paint, not bare plastic.
    Idk if this is how the final release will be but I was hoping for bare plastic for the barrel, but I can see paint scuffs on his barrel.

    Well DUH because it was just revealed.

    Cad models and final in-hand toy decos are two different things.

    So, yeah they will more than likely do it now. they've done just about every other exclusive to date.

    Wow. So considering picking up MP36+ even after all the awesome KO repaints. Bravo Takara.

    I know the toy wasn\'t in the movie but I really don\'t understand why not just include all the parts if you\'re charging the same price.  Give all the faces and accessories of the first release.

    No it's not.

    I've got the original right here and those parts are just dark grey.

    I really want this but can\'t justify paying that much just for a novelty item. Maybe someday.

    After looking at that pic, yeah the neck area looks the most off. I understand the G1 didn't transform like Mp-36, but man that looks so off.

    Good news is there should be no paint chipping on the silencer vs pistol nozzle.

    Man that gun mode looks sexy though.....

    Overall, it would be fun to get this Megatron, but I personally don't think he's worth it. I would still like to see a perfect mix rather than super toy or super toon accurate.

    Something that's bugging me for some reason: Is the squiggly plate chromed but the non squiggly plate painted silver or is it just the lighting? Seems odd to do it that way :O

    Agreed. They’ll almost certainly do it now, it will very likely be available months before the Takara version, and it will hopefully include the sword and hand gun.
