    Don't suppose you have an '09 Leader Prime for comparison?

    Just finished the transformation to jet mode. The instructions are completely useless, you have no idea of what's going on in their drawings. Jet mode is impressive though.

    Great execution on a horrible design. I was starting to think maybe I will get him and this picture puts me right back to probably not. (good picture btw)

    I still like the original Premium Leader from the first movie, but this one, wow, it's quite a sight. I don't really see what WJ or BM could improve on that one, other than needlessly replacing some of the rubber parts with plastic or die-cast counterparts that would possibly break due to how thin they need to be (like the fingers).

    $229 CAD. That’s only $175 USD which is an absolute steal for a masterpiece of this size.

    I just hope there isn't some weird QC issue. MPM line's been a little hit and miss, which is why I have APS Ultimate Prime as my main movie toy.

    I found 2 Megatrons in Ontario at toysrus st Laurent location. Funny enough they weren’t on the shelf with the other transformers and I was kinda disappointed, but then I went to go buy another figure and they were on the returns counter

    Only thing that might keep me from getting this guy is the hope for a BMB OS KO. NOT because I think this figure has issues like Prime did. But because I'd like him to scale with my BMB prime.

    I’m sure Megs’ll pop up on amazon by mid august at latest. It seems like TRU Canada is just breaking street date a bit

    Good luck to HasTak on trying to sell the worst Megatron in Transformers history for that price.

    It’s only $176 USD, which isn’t even that gigantic of a bump in comparison to Ironhide’s original retail price.

    True. But, Megs is out now at retail. And theres listings for both him and Jazz right now, hidden under amazon international. And when word first broke, it seemed Hasbro wasnt too keen on the idea of letting Amazon get them in stock.
