Love the old BW Megatron mold, particularly prefer him over the new Kingdom version. A must have!
It's a great mold for sure! I picked up the DX version from the Telemocha line a little while ago along with the DX Convoy, and IMO they both still hold up today
The ultimate version of the mould IMO. No dumb retooled face, really nice, show-accurate colours.
Reborn face looks awesome actually, but yeah, I love the OG BW mold and also prefer it to Kingdom. Those robot mode heels, oh yeah.
He did it again...
Can't say I blame you on the face thing; I thought we saw BW Megatron as the smirking, smug type a lot more often than a growling megalomaniac so the Reborn/10th Anniversary face really should've been a slam dunk for me, but IMHO the final result was kinda lacking in sculpt and character. Great idea, so-so execution. In contrast, I actually didn't mind that the DX reused the 96 Ultra head because that head kicked all kinds of ass to begin with!

The one thing I can say is I’m not a fan of the black head. Maybe it’s just bias from how I’ve seen the figure most often portrayed, with a silver head.
No pics comparing it to the original?
I feel like it’d look better without the battle mask halves.
If it's not too much work, I'll probably swap the head of the reissue with my heavily yellowed, no accessories included copy that I've had for the past few years, since the black head just makes everything blend together, but I get it was an attempt to mix the toy with a bit of show accuracy. It just doesn't work with the all black chest.
I do still absolutely love these original BW toys. I love how the Kingdom ones look more, but these are definitely more fun to mess with.
That head is terrible. You can find the original for cheaper and it doesn't skip paint apps. Stupid.
Is the original Rattrap bigger or smaller than Kingdom?
Bigger and better.
Thanks so I'm gonna do myself a searching again!
He can't compare what he doesn't own. As far as I can tell from his older videos, he's more of a new collector so the older the fig the higher the chance he doesn't own it.
Where? I haven't seen any that cheap that were complete, I've seen most run around $60-$80 complete.
Just one quick example. If you're patient and look around, there's a lot of supply. I guess this listing should have said "BONUS!!! Silver helmet"

Was that new in box? I'm assuming not, and it's been a good long while since I've seen a MISB BW Megatron go for what they are selling the reissue for. Comparing an old opened figures price to a reissues MSRP is a bit of false equivalency.
