    Decent. Not going to replace my MP-05 or the next MP V1 Megatron they do, but I think it might be worth adding to the collection if it isn't a mess like Voyager Blitzwing.

    Can those tread pieces go up on the shoulders on the grey mess like green one? they look kinda IDWish.

    Thank you Weitat1988 for reminding me of this pic. Wow. I'll probably just get the Hasbro's for my sons and then get this one for myself.

    Yeah, my expectations for this guy were too high. I actually thought they would attempt to recreate the highly detailed IDW look and could succeed in doing so. But I must say I like how G1 he looks, the headsculpt is very nice. Definitely better than Voyager Optimus Prime.

    The Armada one looks nice too, but since I have no connection to Armada whatsoever, I pass on this one.

    I will be getting both! =D They both look amazing and surprisingly very different considering they are the same mold, the legs look a little meh but overall not a bad figure! For once Hasbro have given more love to Megs than they have Optimus xD

    Here is hoping for more Armada Updates!

    I'm hoping the arm cannon can be attached to the side of the forearm so it does not restrict that arm's articulation. I also think the cannon would look better facing the other direction.

    How tall is this compared to MP Prime?

    Not bad. Doubtful I'll get it. But it is a respectable effort (unlike that Optimus).

    Nice! But I will wait for a Takara release, as I just got United Megatron. I expected it to look a little more like IDW Megatron. But it's actually what we've been wanting. A G1 Megatron that turns into a tank. Seems Hasbro IS listening.

    I raised my expectations too high and I'm a little disappointed.

    That said, it IS a pretty good G1 Megatron figure. I'm picking it up for my Classics shelf alone.

    Armada Megsy, eh. I don't really care too much about the character for me to buy it.

    Huh. That mold has actual minicon ports. Although it's extremely likely that the Armada remold was planned from the beginning, perhaps we may see a few more Minicons next year.

    I appreciate the homage, but Armada Megatron just looks bad.

    Someone said there was a way to make G1 Megs an Autobot? Any hint of how that works?

    The legs look a little weird, but they look decent overall. I get the feeling they'll look a lot better in person.

    They both look amazing! :D  So nice to see they made an Armada version of him too. He'd look good with Starscreams armada body.

    Very nice~
