    I'm honestly surprised they didn't as they surely could've released him twice. One pristine, the other with the battered and defeated, post Autobot City/Unicron deal deco.

    Did you deliberately pose this scene like Superman 2, where the three kryptonian criminals arrive on Earth in that small town or is it just a really happy accident?

    honestly, aside from being a tank the ER Megatron is pretty animation accurate in bot mode

    Finally got Blurr! He’s definitely going to be my Robot mode display piece, the Legends one will be Car mode.

    It looks great! It just reminded me of that scene, specially since it was Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge.

    Yeah, exactly. They could definitely get some mileage from that buck if they did it. But I guess it's a way to get a few more G1 characters out there so Megs isn't priority what with Earthrise.

    I literally just got an Earthrise today and you're right. It's definitely a good G1 representation even if he isn't a pistol.

    I head swapped mine with the Siege Megatron and honestly don't think I'll ever need another Megatron, especially since I admittedly prefer the tank to the pistol

    The Megatron RED head is a great substitute too. Of all the recent G1 Megs headsculpt options, that one is def my fav.

    Posted this in the Scourge review thread, but it didn't get any attention, so posting it here. Has anyone noticed slight stress marks where the back panels peg in on vehicle mode? They're in the edges of the pegs, slight, but they're there.
