    To be honest, NewAge only has 1 MPM figure till date, which is DOTM Soundwave. That size is fine without ratchet but if this Meg is huge, I bet ratchet joint will be used

    I can only imagine what would be the price

    We are in an age where there are three 3P companies are competing to make MP scaled DOTM Megatrons.

    They aren't making anything. They are stealing.

    Huh. It had been so long since NewAge produced a movie figure I just thought they gave up.
    This the first Shanghai information I've seen. Hopefully there is more new stuff.

    Well shit now we have 3. Can this one be cheaper for once? I’m fed up with MP44 priced shit. I just want a baddass Megatron that doesn’t need me to go into debt over it. One of them has to be competitively priced to get people’s attention.

    The alt seems to be on par with AAT's.
    NA's will probably has as good transformation as UT's, often better sculpt and paint, but the price will be higher.
    But it will be for late 2022 or 2023 I think.

    Do we have height information? Scale or not, the others are just way too big for me.

    Too big? The AAT one is barely the same height as the regular MPM Megatron. That’s pretty small tbh.

    Their Soundwave was fantastic, hopefully this is just as good! While not the best pictures, this does look promising.

    Damn, that robot mode might be as good as UT's Megatron. But that truck mode might be the best out of the three.
    Man I was hoping Newage would make someone else instead, I really wanted them to make TLK Barricade...

    Well now you have my attention...I already have Mista and for a first try at MPM he is pretty good if not a wee overpriced. I'm definitely going to keep an eye out on this guy purely because Mista is one of my favorite guys in my collection.

    Dude, the regular MPM is 11 inches. That’s not pretty small lmao. Granted I’d prefer something closer in size to the Weijiang MPM Megatron, but still.

    If that's too big for em he has the studio series leader class figure lol. Idk why anyone would be asking for a smaller one when 2 smaller ones exist, and these are for the size class that he's never been made in.

    Well, I believe most of the collector would prefer the Meg to be in scale with BA OP, hence MPM08 scale is not what most of the 3rd party will consider

    What exactly is being stolen, well, I guess aside from the obvious IP infringement stuff?
