    I just want to say about difference wiht official art and real toy thing. I don't think megatron's bio's necessary in this debate. At the very least, they should have changed megatron's chin shape. But they didn't.

    Yea, just because this subline is 5 figures, that doesn't mean it's the only SG we will get. They could still sprinkle SG in Selects or do a wave 2 of the subline

    The bio is necessary because it's reflective of the fact that this is a worn down and not optimistic/hopeful Megatron. He was at one point, but the bio reflects the face sculpt. You're also seeing the art out of context, maybe that piece of art is from a flashback to the early war.

    Thank you very much for the suggestion I honestly had no idea they existed, my main priority right now is trying to secure SG Megatron, hopefully EBgames and Zing stock him here in Australia like they did with SG Blurr, but once I know I can set a budget for them I'll defintely be chasing down both versions of Squalkbox now that I know they exist.

    The picture on the box and the official art are all decorated on the chin and look young. I think the bio is just an excuse for using the molding as it is. Even after many incidents, there's no reason why the face of the evil Decepticon leader and the face of the righteous Decepticon leader are exactly the same.

    There's actually a 3rd black version too. I'm not sure if they deliver to Australia, but if you want to check em out here's the BBTS links

    G1: DW-P51 Chatter
    SG: DW-P51M Chatter
    Black: DW-P51B Chatter

    BBTS has SG and black as a bit more expensive for some reason, but other sites have all 3 for $25USD

    Except Megatron is no longer the righteous Decepticon leader. The bio informs the story and the story is created by the figures. Again, the art is out of context, it could be from the pre war age when Megatron was still young and hopeful.

    [QUOTE = "Fenrys, 게시 : 19078450, 회원 : 39655"] 실제로 세 번째 블랙 버전도 있습니다. 호주로 배송되는지 확실하지 않지만 확인하려면 여기 BBTS 링크가 있습니다.

    G1 : DW-P51 채터
    SG : DW-P51M 채터
    블랙 : DW-P51B Chatter

    BBTS는 어떤 이유로 든 SG와 블랙을 조금 더 비싸지 만 다른 사이트는 $ 25USD에 모두 3 개를 가지고 있습니다.


    Megatron은 더 이상 의로운 디셉티콘 리더가 아닙니다. 바이오는 이야기를 전달하고 이야기는 인물에 의해 만들어집니다. 다시 말하지만, 예술은 맥락에서 벗어났습니다. 그것은 메가 트론이 아직 젊고 희망적이었던 전쟁 전 시대의 것일 수 있습니다.


    Doesn't it make any sense that the face of a former Decepticon leader who's been through a lot of incidents is exactly the same as that of a benevolent Decepticon leader in a parallel world? Using the same face shape as it is is an inexcusable and excessive cost reduction.

    The face of the benevolent Autobot leader is the exact same as the face of the Evil Autobot leader from a parallel world. Same with the kind Autobot doctor and sadistic parallel counterpart. You are claiming "inexcusable and excessive cost reduction" yet they also tooled entirely new parts to call back to the original SG Megatron's flight mode. They also initially listed Megatron with no upcharge despite the extra accessories and included comic (likely a mistake, but it still happened). Not exactly the "inexcusable and excessive cost reduction" you are making it out to be. So far for SG we've gotten 2 direct repaints, 1 partial with a new head and 1 direct repaint with new accessories that create what is essentially a 3rd bonus mode.

    Also, not sure why you changed the language of my text you quoted o_O

    Just thought of another possible SG Decepticon if you have it or can get one, the Centurion drone could totally be SG Brunt

    After all my complaining about that Thigh Gap, and I still pre ordered it, because it looks so much like the coloring I did on this mold.

    Does Hasbro have me under surveillance ?

    He has actually exceeded my expectations. Love those new pieces, love the colors, love that jet mode. Was expecting just a straight repaint of the earthrise figure based off that old leaks thread, glad they went this direction. Idk how many siege megatrons I have by now but I’m happy to add another one to my collection.

    The Centurion Drone is actually on my list to try get as I think hes the last Weaponizer I need, sadly though I don't think he was easy to get here in Australia, I've got a few preorders I want to prioritize first through BBTS and a few through EBgames, but he's definitely high on my list to eventually find, if he ever ends up on Amazon or eBay though for a good price then Ill definitely jump at him.

    I actually have a really good Shattered Glass collection currently, I think the only original convention exclusive I am missing is the original voyager Optimus, and to a lesser extent the Botcon Slicer and Sweep that could be repurposed as SG Wheeljack and SG Scourge, I have the Dark Energon Prime Wheeljack as a stand in though, I think they did repaints of the original G1 Soundwave and Blaster with some cassettes in SG colours too but I don't have that set either, but Shattered Glass is my favourite Transformers fiction, so I'm always excited to add new figures to my collection.

    I never got any of the originals, so all I currently have is the selects 2 pack and Rodimus Unicronus from potp. I think music label Soundwave was also more or less released in SG colors too

    I don't need a 3P upgrade for this kit to enjoy it, but . . . I'd be very happy if we got a couple translucent blue shoulder cannons and maybe one more piece (a second shield, a backpack, whatever) to help lock the legs into the body for spaceship mode.

    This one isn't a jet with a robot hanging off the bottom. It is a jet with a tank hanging off the back. I LOVE IT!

    Wow! bought on spot.

    It would be cool if they did non-Shattered Glass version of this.

    I am thinking the figure designs are meant to be an homage to the original toy looks, but I think it is going to be mostly a reboot/new version of the SG storyline. And since I don't know a ton about the original story, I am cool with that!

    Couldn't slurge for a new head? He doesn't exactly look heroic.
