Honestly while Super Megatron may work as a means of getting more in line with what the original BotCon exclusive had? The fact they're using the Siege figure doesn't really bug me all that much. For one thing, I look at the build in those colors and it really does a lot to change the vibe as it takes this big powerful bruiser of an emperor who will not hesitate to smash a bot's face in if they dare to question his command and makes him look heroic. I mean with those proportions it even kind of gives me vibes of both other heroic robots and mecha and some Optimus Prime toys. To be fair that isn't to say that Super Megatron in these colors wouldn't be, to borrow a phrase from Thew, absolutely pimpin' but honestly rather than worry about what we could've had I'm just glad we got this. Plus I think it's got some really great elements. For one thing, while the jet-mode is kinda flaky, I get a tiny bit of almost a Prime Megatron vibe from it with just the general shape and proportions albeit blockier. I mean it's a very unintentional connection that's most likely being made up by my WAY too nerdy brain but hey it's something I'm getting out of it. I think the cockpit/shield thing is a little weird but honestly compared to the whatever lance they gave Earthrise Megs it's pretty neat and honestly really does assist in selling Megatron as a good guy just by its general aesthetic alone and just in general this mold rocks these colors. Overall... I'm excited as all hell. I already own the Siege figure but this one just tickles my fancy and I really don't mind that it's being used again for something like this especially since this mold already made for such an awesome Megatron and it's just nice to see Shattered Glass get actual mainstream time in the spotlight that isn't relegated to convention exclusives that will run you the price of a house in the aftermarket or a cool but stupidly rare 3P offering... that also goes for the price of a house on the aftermarket. I mean I can't be the only one who felt that this thing had so much potential when Fun Pub brought it out in 2008 only to feel increasing disappointment when it would kind of go underutilized except for the odd exclusive that would most often just not belong in whatever line-up they threw it in so I really don't see too many issues with this. I mean okay if there's one nitpick I can make it's that the wings are "Eh." in robot mode but aside from that? Everything else looks dope.
