    This is utterly bonkers in the best way possible. And also makes me really wish I’d bothered with Prime and Ratchet. D’oh!

    maybe they were angling more for a little Transformers: Prime homage as well?

    I think retooling (or at least adding new parts to) the new Galvatron into a jet would have been trickier

    Aaand ordered. Personally, the jet mode looks.. as good as they could do with this mold, which I like a lot considering he was a tank originally. The shield gives me Star Saber vibes and I’m not entirely sure why.

    This looks so immaculate it's insane. I for one really like Siege Mega and getting the option for a jet mode on this guy's is nuts!

    It would have been nice if the cockpit covered the exposed legs, but it's still not bad considering they at least made an attempt to make the alt mode a jet. I'm not into SG so it's still a pass for me, but it turned out better than I thought it would.

    WOW. That's absolutely pathetic. They use a completely ill-fitting mold then throw in some rubbish extra parts so you can partsform it into something that still doesn't look how it's supposed to be.

    Because they want to sell it to the G1 fans that want a Marvel black helmet Megatron.

    Really respect the hustle of giving him a new alt mode, no matter how unconvincing.

    My biggest issue with this weirdly? Really needed blue paint on the eyes and/or a face resculpt to sell this guy as heroic. He looks heroic in the artwork, but the figure still looks sinister to me.

    I like what they did for the alt mode. I just wish they gave him a new head.

    Still think it should have bee the Super Megatron mold, but honestly this is WAY more effort than I expected them to put into it (even if it's just add-on parts). In a weird way this works, because it means that, like the Energon mold, there is both a spaceship and a tank in the mix there.

    And honestly I'm just happy they're doing more SG.

    Maybe late to the party but “extensive remold”? How so exactly?

    Looks like the identical mold less the front center plater plus some extra parts.
