I just got this figure today and it is awesome
After long internal debates on whether or not I should get this guy or the voyager, I've decided that I will get this guy to be in scale with leader prime, and the newly announced leader Starscream. If there is no leader Starscream, then I will be fine with the voyager.
I actualy prefer the Voyager Megatron FOR scale reasons with other Decepticons.
I'll display him with the constructicons, Starscream and The Fallen just fine.
You're right! The autobots are to scale with themselves, and the Decepticons are to scale with themselves. I'm gonna skip leader Megs and SS, and get the voyagers.
this mold is really growing on me....I'm debating between him or prime for the 30th
Dude member last movie. Prime is going to sell out first. Megs will be avaible for a while because he is shipping with jetfire.
I didn't know he was shipping with jetfire. I guess prime wins then! Haha
I love this Megatron... leagues better than the Voyager version. May 30th, get our ass here already!
I love this guy too...though the spring in his arm seems a little week. The sword doesn't spring forward with that much force and if the arm is tilted up, the sword falls back a bit. Anyone have any ideas on how to tweak this?
I can't wait to get this Megatron. He's huge and has a very imposing look. Plus that mold is loaded with details.
The left leg on mine will not snap into place in Alt mode and ruins that mode for me. It keeps springing out of the socket because the joint is under such tension at the hip area. Is there a trick that I'm missing or did I get a defective figure?
My megs as well has a big platic tab that is has on the right. But the right has a hole where the gun arm goes to place it into, where the other leg as no slot so his legs cant go straight
Did you get yours at Frys? If you did then I'm glad I left that sucker because I had a bad feeling about it for some reason. LOL.
Haha, yeah I got it at Frys but there were 10 or so of everything at the time I bought Megs, Sideswipe, and Ops. Most of the stuff was sitting in two shopping carts in the toy isle.
I actually figured out how to get the leg to stay in place in tank mode but its not very secure and pops out now and then.
As a statue of Megatron hes great, as a poseable figure he is severely lacking. Guess they spent all the development on Prime since hes so mind bendingly amazing.
There is a trick. This was happening to mine too...until I realized that I was transforming it wrong. I wasn't moving the hips forward, you know, the thing that gives you the transformation noise? Yeah, I wasn't doing that and it wasn't pegging in. I could still get it to reach and peg in on one side but not the other. Then I realized I wasn't getting the noise, did the flip and it worked.
Also, I fixed the claw. I just opened up the mechanism, took out the spring and adjusted it until it was giving enough resistance. I MAY have losta pring that was inside it that was pushing the trigger forward but it works and now flips with enough forward to fire the missle a little.
What hip are you refering too? The pice that splits off from his groin?
When I finally get mine....that left claw will be shorted, at the very least. I might see if I can find a junker LC Brawl and cannibalize his left hand. (The current one HAS to go.)
And that right arm is getting an elbow. Some friggin' way or another, I'm cuttin' that in two.
Oh, Wow! I didn't even realize that his entire hip section could rotate! That fixed the issue completely. The hips also now peg into the rear tank treads and makes him super solid in alt mode.
Thanks for the tip!
No problem man!
Citoria, after you unclip the hips from the groin, you should be able to rotate them both forward. Peaugh's video review shows it very well. They should rotate together to so if you move one, you move both. Experiment and you should figure it out. You know when you get it when you hear the transformation noise.
Just wondering can someone please post a pic of megatron looking to the side in a cool action pose? I just want to see how far he can move his neck from side to side and if it results in a decent looking to the side pose and pointing his big claw arm if you know what I mean...Also in robot mode, is it possible to lift those two panels on his shoulders to allow him to have much better articulation at the neck? Reason for my asking is because I realized in tank mode those two panels are raised and was wondering if its possible in robot mode... If so, does he look weird?
