    He’s the same height as the voyager ROTF Megatron according to those that are there.

    They retooled Prime’s legs to make the wheels unable to fold up on his thighs....

    Why go through all that effort to make it more accurate, only to then remove something to make it less accurate..

    The wheels still fold up, it's just that the wheel wells don't collapse any more. This one on display is mistransformed. But yeah, still a step backwards despite all the other steps forward.[​IMG]

    Looking at DOTM megs’ two modes, it looks like hastak have further refined their mass shifting technique.

    Still though. It would have costed them MORE to retool the mold to change it. Why not just keep them the same? I mean, unless theres a port in there that Jetfire attatches too, but I don’t see why the wheel wells would need to be static for that.

    How the hell does HasTak make mass shifting work? It's amazing what they've been able to pull off.

    This Megatron looks great, but I would have really loved to see what this series could do with Movie 1 Megatron.

    Oof. That soft goods cloak isnt looking so hot. The cloth looks too stiff and it doesn't gang across the figure like it should.

    My thought as well. The rest of the figure looks pretty good overall to me. Much better than the original picture made it look. But yeah, that cloak is weak. I wonder if maybe it can be fixed with some washing and breaking in.

    OMG those Megatron details are amazing!

    Takara is really your product? It almost looks as good as a 3P product! Good job!
