    I don't remember enjoying a figure nearly as much as Agamemnon. You won't be disappointed!

    Oh believe me...I am not a completionist. I just pick and choose. But the thought for a prime did cross my mind. Merely because he and Megs are the only characters I have multiple iterations of.


    BTW I ordered that limited toy colours version.

    This Megatron was what got me on the Legends class 3rd party bandwagon. For right now, I have Magic Square Optimus filling in until if/when Newage does one. And other than ToyWorld's Wheeljack, the rest are Newage Legends.

    Starscream
    Thundercracker
    Skywarp
    Ironhide
    Ratchet
    Bluestreak
    Prowl
    Jazz

    I have a NA Bumblebee and Cosmos hoping coming in the mail, and then I have to decide if my next purchase will be the Insecticons 3 pack or Coneheads 3 pack here.

    Magic Square OP is so close to perfect for me, it's next to impossible to top. But if any company tops it, it will be NewAge.

    He scales really well with NA Megatron. I wish the rest of the Magic Square stuff scaled well with NA (Sideswipe!)

    Sideswipes own head doesn't scale with himself. Waiting for the NA version of the Lambros.

    Just more Autobots in general here would be cool as the ones NA has done are really good for their size.

    I'm personally happy with how some of the MST Autobots scale with NA (Trailbreaker, Hoist, Blaster)

    Yeah me too, I think MS and NA scale fine together for the most part. Just not Sideswipe.

    Go with the older figures first, before stock dries up and you're left to the mercy of aftermarket prices.

    Yeah, I already found that out with Bumblebee and Cosmos...which I ordered from a seller on Amazon and are coming from China sometime in March-April.

    So next oldest would be the Insecticons.

    I'm definitely hoping for a NA Prime. Magic Square looks great, but the plastic quality feels like it will break every time I transform it.

    I guarantee the MST Prime won’t break. Bend or warp for sure, but the nylon plastic is pretty durable.

    I’m pretty sure NewAge has lots of surprises for us in the new year. Hopefully the outbreak subsides and we see lots of production get back underway soon.

    Really? I don't own him but MS uses nylon that is crazy freaking durable. Is there any reason you feel like he's fragile?

    I'm sure they've been getting a lot of design work done. I'm excited to see what lies ahead for them.

    The three (2 gray and 1 silver) I got from TFSource were early editions that came with the extra SPLOOOOOSH! fx parts. Kind of neat the ball comes off. It was a little pricier.. but it paid off!

    I just got my “fixed” cartoon pants from eBay. Anyone know where to get the “go better addon kit” ? It’s in one of the YT reviewer videos that there’s a gap filler under the chest as well as a back body filler piece. This would make him perfect.

    yeah, the last thing i would ever think about MS prime is that i might break him during transformation. that goes for any MS bot for that matter.

    i had to chop a limb off an MS bot for a friend and even that was extremely hard compared to other legend bots.

    either way he is very tough and here is MS prime getting his rocks off in china. SmartSelect_20190609-053927_Chrome.gif

    After putting on his new pants, I dislike how the heels must be placed. He is either giraffing it or tippy toeing.

    The joints are loose.

    From an up-down view, he looks great! Down-up, not so much.

    Nicely done, but 90% on design. Needed just a little more. Screws were iffy to begin with... I was afraid of stripping them.
