    They also come with, y'know, more stuff.

    Unless you genuinely think it's only the base body that counts when it comes to size class. Or are you also angry that Armada Unicron was sold at a Supreme size when he was just an accessory for the Mini-con Dead End? :p 

    Also you had an easy one with Siege Astrotrain and you missed it.

    So anyone reckon DNA Design will muster up an upgrade kit for 2007 Megatron that gives him a fusion cannon or the proper chest (even if I don’t really care about the chest)?

    I have a strange feeling that next there is going to be another Voyager sized Leader with another smaller transforming figure.

    I'm quite sure the vultures started circling when it was first shown that he doesn't come with a cannon.
    I'm interested to see if Dr. Wu have something planned. I won't buy TP or KO figures, but upgrades and add-ons are on the table.

    Nitro Zeus. Starscream-sized (so basically small Leader-sized) new mold that turns into a gigantic jet and comes with a transforming Mohawk.

    Alternatively I'm thinking of another shot as Infernocus, this time with a better detailed Quintessa.

    Man I was so ready to pass on this Megatron because I hated the jet with his head on top and then not only does this release fix that but it looks like a really good figure with an interesting transformation too? Guess I’ll be adding him to the buy list.

    What a weird presentation on Mixmaster's box. At first blush, it looks like something was left out in manufacture with those big gray bars in front and the legs all static, it took a second look to see how much stuff is behind the lighter-colored plastic. I suppose they would have shown better if the drum shell parts weren't blocking the top window.

    The head flips into the chest. The neck plate needs to go in farther than you think for the shoulder plates to fit properly inside the chest. I put some photos next to SS56 Shockwave in the Bayverse thread here:
    Movieverse Toys Appreciation Thread! EXPLOSIONS!!!

    Yeah, for packaging reasons, you have to do some assembly for Mixmaster, which was not difficult. Also, his break bars on his chest are supposed to be angled higher compared to the packaging.

    Im not angry at all? :inquisiti 
    Just saying, its a pattern I am seeing. Also, shockwaves accessories are so small they barely qualify as "more stuff".
    Not really a major complaint tho, Im still buying them.:D

    Does this Megatron have enough space in the chest to store an Allspark? Maybe there's a future repaint with the arm cannon and Spike with removable Allspark

    That was a joke, you do realize that? Several people brought up the incorrect price point already, I just poked a little fun at the issue. This is TFW2005, after all, not the Soviet Union.

    The joke may of landed if you said "Silence! Dont question the great and powerful news staff" with :bay :mad: :bay  smilies to stand in for the fire and floating head..


    You know make a reference to The Wizard of Oz.


    After typing it out That joke may only be amusing to me.
    Anyways I'll give my thoughts on megatron when he arrives which hopefully will be any time soon.
