Yeah man honestly not sure if I'll be getting this guy just yet (if I do I'll have to get BA's Optimus and I've been kinda holding out there haha). Like you said, just waiting for something that clearly shows what's been changed/improved/ updated.
No worries man. You just had me super intrigued haha. Glad to hear it may not be something as simple as a miss transformation. Either way, sounds like WJ's doesn't even have diecast in him so this guy may come out front just for that. At least for me
Yeah, I was only rooting for Model Wizard because of how solid and heavy their past figures were
It's late October, where is this thing???
Clearly in late-er October
new pics. Don't see any changes other than some slight remolding to the head. (honestly didn't even notice it was changed). So far no signs of new engineering.
meh, kinda small
jokes aside, it looks pretty good, nice to have some high-res photos
small? smaller than mpm08 to mpm04 ratio? smaller than the ratio of the official size?
Oh man, I am so confused by all the KO's, OS KO's, redone KO's etc of Bayverse Megatron figures.
I'm not even really that into the character or any of the designs but kind of needed some for my Optimus/Megatron shelf.
For Optimi I have Weijiang M-01, LT02, and will eventually be picking up ToyWorldws Last Knight Prime.
For Megatrons I have Rendsora and the older Hasbro ROTF Megatron (which I think was actually based off a design that wasn't in the film or something)
I just ordered the Honey Badge KO to pair with LT02 (to replace the Hasbro one), and the TF Dream KO to pair with MS-01 (understanding that these don't actually match up to each other in terms of which movie they're from.. but I don't care. I just want them to be relatively close to each other in height, because, again, I don't care about the scale resented in the movies and think Prime and Megatron should always be the same height...)
I'll eventually replace Rendsora with the UT Megatron and pick up TW's Optimus (because they are very similar in height, see above about wanting the characters to be eye to eye.)
I looked at the BMB but I ended up with TF Dream factory instead. Not really sure whether that was the right move or not. I just really struggle with the Bayverse designs, recognizing and remembering which is which and what is more accurate.
I don't even know what I'm going to do if ToyWorld ever releases that Bumblebee movie Prime... What would I pair with that for a Megatron?
That's why I do have BMB's oversized Hasbro deluxe SS Megs next to WJ MPP-10. They're about that same size, looking great together (despite different universes) and it's like BMB vs WJ in KO war ))
He looks a lot bigger than before in these photos lol (probably just perspective), his whips also look a lot better!
God this thing is big...
Make ls03 look like a child with his dad...
Yeah, hope we get a video soon, this guys meant to be slightly bigger than the Weijiang one, but these pictures make him look wayyy taller
I feel stupid for asking but what's the difference between the Studio Series Megatron & and the MPM Megatron? I know they are different molds but are they supposed to be the same figure with different molds or are they his different incarnations from different movies? If so, which is which?
Like @Starganderfish I don't have much attachment to the bayverse figs but I do still find myself putting together a little collection.
Can someone help clarify what is the difference between the ayoi Mech ls12/black mamba version vs. The wj/model Wizard sky shake version vs. The black mamba ss ls-06?
I think the first 2 are OS ko of the MPM with the ayoi Mech being 1cm bigger. And the ls-06 being an OS ko of the ss. But I'm still confused if they are supposed to be the same Megatron from the same movie since they look diff...
Any help would be appreciated
Yes, the BMB LS06 is an oversized version of the Studio Series' Megatron, wich is the Revenge of the Fallen version, (cybertronian tank). The model wizar and ayoi mech ones are oversized version of the MPM Megatron. Model wizard's Meg is the same mold but oversized, and it is said that Aoyi's version has a rework on the backpack, but i think we still dont know if thos is true.
So the SS version is supposed to be from Rotf (cybertronian tank) and MW/WJ & Ayoi is supposed be based on MPM and that Megatron is from ____?
And nobody knows whats really the diff between the OS MPM kos?
The MPM oversized versions are from the first movie
Okay so, the WJ OS Megatron and this Megatron are OS KOs of the MPM 8 Megatron which is meant to represent Movie 1 Megatron.
The tank megatron from the studio series is the movie 2 megatron, and the BMB LS06 is an OS KO of that figure. There’s also a leader class studio series megatron that does not have an OS KO and is meant to be movie 3 megatron. There is an upcoming studio series movie 1 megatron coming next year I believe, where it has a much cleaner back than the mpm, but has much thicker legs as a result of kibble distribution. Hope that clears things up
