    This'll be coming with my MP-44, whenever AmiAmi decides to invoice me for my order this month. He looks good/accurate, but it's also funny to me how his eyes aren't that evident in a lot of straight-on shots.

    Yeah, he's got those blades over each eye, so if you don't have back light hitting it right, they are dark, and it looks murky. When the light does get through, they shine. Most of the shots here don't have extra processing on the eyes. The backlight from my studio lights did the trick.

    Such astonishing photos!. Personally love the detail they put in for Megatron and such. Doubt this was a reference to TFP. But l like to think it was.

    Actually in my head it was a play on the Movie 1 posters, Protect, Destroy:

    tf movie 1 poster tfw2005.jpg

    Which the Prime series also probably riffed off of.

    God these are glorious images of what is a beautiful representation of one of the most horrible movie translatrions of a character this side of Shaquille O'Neal's Steel.

    The more I look at this toy, the more awesome it gets! The intricate, characterful sculpting, the effective transformation, and the sheer imposing presence make this beast truly worthy of the Movie Masterpiece moniker.

    Yeah he’s pretty amazing, great shots!

    Maaaaybe I’ll go ahead and get him and OP after my trip....I’ve had the thought previously, but needed to hold off due to MP-44.

    I have this guy on my way to me from Amazon.co.jp. The first movie is my least favorite version of the character but this figure looks to be very accurate to the CGI design from the film.

    My thoughts.

    Lovely pics, lovely craftmanship!
    Terrible design, what a horrible waste of time and talent and what maniac will send MP level money on this!

    Like @jru42287, I also want this. I plan on getting this around the end of September. It’s my least favorite Megatron design, but this Masterpiece figure looks absolutely amazing.

    It looks cool and the photos are super top notch, but after watching a video of this guy I\'m not that impressed. He looks so fidgety and looks like he hardly holds together. Plus never been a big fan of MP\'s. But he looks nice to say the less.
