    Exactly. People seem to get 'gun control' and 'replica control' mixed up here. I'm not going to go into what's better, as I'm sure my opinion is bound to anger some people, but I can assure you if its a replica all that the police will do is advise you to keep it indoors.

    Ooh. Nice, I've wanted that Megatron since I saw him and I'm sure Prime will look fine in the upcoming Parallax armour.

    The Titans Return figures seem to have well-transformed stock photography.

    The Autobot logo on Prime's roof is reason enough for me to want this set, and I don't mind painting the arm pads. The fiery deco lends itself well to this Megatron.

    The lack of paint on Prime's clear pieces is inexcusable, and ruins the figure. Megs is cool.

    I don't have either of these molds and though Optimus' truck mode is kinda off his bot mode is on point.

    I think you mean "munkys". :lolol 

    That said, that Megatron looks awesome, and I love TFs with translucent plastic, but I already have Combiner Wars G1 Megatron.

    I hate being the "saw this a few weeks ago but didn't think it was newsworthy" guy, therefore I will instead say this:
    "Saw this a few weeks ago but failed to report it, therefore any potential news credit should belong to you".

    Hasbro touching that Nerf Megs mold again is notable, because they've never gone back to it since its original Classics release and no other vaguely gun-like things have been released as Transformers since then aside from a Legion Megs (that still had the orange tip) and a Legends Shockwave that is more a floating cannonish spaceship thing with a handle. This is very interesting that they're willing to bring this not just to North America, but the US specifically.

    That has to be at least some good news that Hasbro could 1. do a new gun-like Shockwave in Classics and 2. for those that wait on them, that Hasbro might someday bring over the Shockwave mold.

    This Megatron is using a color scheme resembling that of the Toys"R"Us exclusive Nerf "Sonic Fire" subline imprint blasters.

    I keep saying that any color scheme Hasbro can use for Nerf without a problem should, by all intents and purposes, be fair game for Transformers as well.

    I get that, but it's still been what, almost 10 years since that mold was released in the US? And all the other Classics molds have been used and re-used how many times since? If it's been fine this whole time to go back to with Nerf color schemes, it seems odd they wouldn't touch it at all.

    I completely agree with you there.

    I was not questioning your statement and I'm sorry if my reply came across like that.

    I was actually arguing against the sentiment that Hasbro couldn't release the sculpt again due to stricter regulations regarding toy weapons or something, because why would Megatron (whose alternate mode is based on a Nerf blaster) pose a problem when Nerf blasters are completely fine?

    Got it, no worries.

    I hope someone has a chance to ask a Hasbro rep about this mold seeing the light of day again during SDCC.

    Prime lacks the red paint to separate his windows, making it look like one big window.
