    Honestly, at a price like that, I'd be a fool to not pick one up with how interested I've been in these guys. I still have reservations about what seem to be die-cast hip joints, but it's not like you're out a stupid amount of money if he does turn out to be lackluster.

    For some reason I almost don’t want to like these (if animation-accurate BW legends happen in the future, I would replace them), but I can’t deny that they look very good for what they are.

    On the other hand Iron Factory’s samurai BW series is a bit wacky, but totally its own thing so they would still feel relevant if more accurate figures came along.

    I’m still contemplating.

    that looks lovely. sculpt and paint is really nice, and the quality and articulation looks good. can't wait to get this one.

    Glade to see in this new video that his shoulder cannons are not that clear red plastic and now are solid black. Wish they filled the gap in his crotch plate because in gorilla mode he looks like he had his banana sheered off. Also being a bit nit picky i wish they made the legs transform better than the original toy did way back. I might get this depending on how much he is. I like megatron but something about his legs doesn't feel right to me. maybe needed a extra bend in the shin like the masterpiece did.

    Honestly, the only thing that is stopping me from placing a (pre)order is the hope they'll pull a NewAge and release this in every deco in which the original was released.

    Already have quite a collection of Primal figures and it's a sea of this deco. I would love it if they'd release it in the Bom-Bom Lucky Draw deco's: blue (instead of black), red (same) and all gold.

    Just watched a SwiftTransform review of these and they look awesome. Love that Megatron's tail is removable, especially.

    I'd consider it essential at this point. Sucks the Kingdom figure was supposed to have a removable tail but they scrapped the feature, even though it's built into the figure itself.

    Sometimes I just want my Megatron to wipe his ass you know

    I can't decide how I feel about these figures just yet.

    The diecast is still really offputting but they look like great quality at a fantastic price. I like the majority of their designs but the way the fur and gorilla head look for Primal isn't ideal.

    Ideally, I'd like to not double up on the same deco for Primal, considering there are two other versions of the character releasing this year or sometime in the near future. Mechanic Studios is releasing theirs in multiple colors but there is no guarantee what Iron Factory will do. So I guess I'm hoping Robot Toys releases this in an alternate color scheme as well. I think the Universe 1.0 colors would look best for this mold.

    The universe colors would be an instant buy from me.
