    UT fans will be crying a river trying to cope with this one. Heck, will this be the end of UT itself? After all they will be re releasing their Megatron soon so they might be looking at plenty of unsold stock.

    You know, he might not be that far off scaling well with the old leader prime!

    Seems like he's the exact same length as UT, just a little taller at the cab?

    I don't understand how he is 35 cm when he's basically the same size as DLX Megatron? According to the Mangmotion video

    Absolutely the hell not. They have already made their money off Megatron from the 3 versions they did and moved onto other characters.

    According to MangMotion, like UT he doesn't have bicep rotation either.

    this is the only thing people really want to see at this point, how it transforms!

    While i don't think UT will take long term blow, they need serious discount to compete with Newage Dotm regarding this particular character. I wouldn't buy Desperado for 190 bucks if i can have Newage anything less than 300.

    why would they need to (seriously) compete if it’s already been out for a year or two. they’ve already made the vast majority of their profit off the figure. anybody who sells their Desperado for the NA one already gave UT their money. If anything NA has an uphill battle trying to get people to double dip or swap

    I don’t think either UT or NA are taking any kind of loss here

    That’s a shame, at least the leg articulation is better than UT.

    At this point, there are still the likes of me who was waiting to see who is the best since NA's version was known even before UT's release, and there are also newcomers to the hobby. I think if they didn't wanna compete, they wouldn't reissue the figure just before NA's release.

    in fact, a new figure releasing will always end up with people only now discovering stuff like this exists.
    they go out and explore and might even come to the conclusion that UT is the right figure for them and will still hunt it down after several years.

    I myself have UT on the way at this very moment, was very late to decide about the color and the green battle damage actually looks better than the brown they used for the desert version.
    NA paint looks better than the UT desert version

    I've had the AAT, will now experience UT and will probably get the NA too and then decide which is the one for me.
    all have their pros and cons

    This is looking better and better. I have this on preorder and I have UT desert version on preorder. Eventhough I'm leaning towards Newage, the biggest decider will be the price. But honestly, I'm probably going to go with Newage regardless because it looks better to me.
