    Did you guys modify the whip or something? I don't want to break it or anything. It feels so stiff.

    Speaking of the whip... any chance to store it in vehicle mode?

    At first I wasn't so big of fan of the knees...But you work around that with certain poses thanks to his awesome feet.

    Attached to the leg, on the side.

    Looks like Squeeks weapon works with Megatron

    My first impression:
    oh-no-hes-hot-37835243.png

    I must have missed the first Earthrise shipment of the year, as there was a decidedly empty shelf next to the baker's dozen Shockwaves at my local Target. But I can tell there was something recently because there were a few new faces in the Studio Series section, including this guy.
    IMG_20200217_170824.jpg
    A Target employee went ham with a box cutter stocking shelves, because this guy has a definite score mark on the top of the box and his friend was sliced clean through in the same place.

    I don't have particular nostalgia for the 07 movie. It's easily the best of the Bayformers movies, but the designs are almost uniformly awful. We didn't have Jolt or Sideswipe yet, not even Ice Cream Truck Skids and Mudflap. We basically had Blackout and Ironhide, and that was it. But there's something about this Megatron. It doesn't look like anything anyone would logically draw if you showed them any version of Megatron prior to this, aside from the color. He ostensibly doesn't turn into anything. But he's... cool. I had the strange blue and burgundy version of this figure that came out in the bad old days, and even he was fun. I think for some reason Megatron embodies all the elements we associate with Michael Bay's Transformers but in a positive way.

    There's also the matter that no Voyager Megatron has ever been this appropriately shiny, outside of maybe one of the PRID figures that only got sold in Canada by accident. There's a million Voyager Primes that are all excellent, but it's hard to find a Megs to stand with him that won't stand waaaay over him.

    Still could use an Ab Crunch. He's basically made of abs, come on.

    Now if you excuse me, I'm off to put him in my freezer.

    This might be a dumb question, but do the legs from the original 07 voyager fit on this guy? Or at least the lower legs? I doubt it, but it’d be cool if it fit proportionally speaking

    Studio series 32 Optimus is probably your best pick. Or the DoTM one 44. (That’s how 32 scales with optimus below)

    Thank you so much! Is there a prime that is a little bit more on the same height as megatron. I really appreciate your time to answer.

    For the 2007 movie, no. Try Legendary OP maybe.

    Legendary Op is substantially taller, Evasion Prime should be closer to what you're looking for. Perhaps also HFTD Battle Blades Prime

    An underrated, albeit pricey option if you strictly want an Optimus that's as big as Megatron is the first 2007 Voyager. Both are in the 19-20cm height mark.

    I can see a 3p company just making a chest add on kit and call it a day. Easy $$$ for them. IMG_20200411_105230924_HDR.jpg

    Also, the hand pieces aren’t pinned and easily removable, so I imagine it’d be easy for a 3rd party company to give him articulated claws and/or an attachment for his fusion cannon.

    He is ok, but he has an incredibly flawed silhouette due to the design choices. I really wish the torso area was not a reuse, and i would choose a backpack over those darn lower legs. He just looks so incredibly unbalanced aesthetically. I am not satisfied with him despite coloring some of his plastic bits and the addition of gold (my ROTF has copper so i chose gold to differentiate the two). There is no other way to get around my issues without 3p help. IMG_20200413_095104970~2.jpg
