    @Georgii10235's diagram is far more thorough, though, I created a rough comparison with a picture I found which shows the top down view of MPM Megs. The wingspan is actually fairly accurate. Note: the perspective may be making the wings look smaller than they should be.

    Oh for sure, the duck lips are awful. If he had those with no mouthplate option he would be an instant pass for me.

    Angel scene?

    You can count me in with the "mouth is better than faceplate" faction

    It looks pretty close, especially when you consider the concept art too. In the film it appears longer from the lower angle. There's the following clip of Megatron flying into the building smashing Prime as well.

    Used @Music's comparison as inspiration for this diagram. Proportions are actually pretty close, from these images anyway. The official wingspan is slightly longer.

    I completely agree. Unless you have complete mastery of a 3D printer you can't add parts or molded detail, but paint is so easy that anyone can do it, and for very little money, too. Look up "gundam markers" on amazon.
    I think all the autobots had battle masks in the concept phase but they all got it dropped except prime and bee. Most of Ironhide's concept art and early renders shows him with a pretty robust face plate. In fact almost every toy of him until recently had it too for some dumb reason!
    Wow the MPM and all these screenshots are making me appreciate the design more. There are a lot of little details especially in the wings that I'd never noticed before! Megatron was the ONLY design that I didn't like from the first movie, and now even that is starting to change... However concept art is not useful in discussions of details, since it is usually different enough from the final CGI designs to render it moot.

    Glad it makes you feel that way! I agree that concept art isn't usually the best point of reference as the CGI can range from little differences to wildly major changes, the jet-mode here however is close to what we got in the final version in terms of proportions, some details were obviously changed in the end. Concept art is still useful in these discussions, especially if the movies didn't have clear shots of what we're comparing them to - which in this case there was only one clip where we could clearly see Megatron's jet-mode. To make sure we also got the CGI render used in the movie for comparison.

    Honestly I much prefer the mouthplate on Ironhide, not a fan of the weird asymmetrical mutant dog face he has.

    The listing says Jazz will be 6 inches so it'll be fine. There's a lot of Bees on eBay if you look carefully.

    Not a fan of TF1 Megs but that does look great.

    Hell even Studio Series Ironhide’s box has him with the mouthplate.

    So mistransforming the head mimics the original concept art design? That’s awesome.

    definitely looks like his standard mode head, but i'm sure that feature it's for the jet mode.

    Definitely, but it emulates it so perfectly that I wouldn’t put it past them for it to be an intentional feature
