    The spoiler ver (the right one) is screen accurate. PF is the most accurate of them all, with all the subtle damage and weathering painted out. Note how both previous versions omit the scratches on the helmet; and how the first Netflix set has the wrong scratches and the bullet holes in the right side are scratches too.

    TLDR: Each release of the self proclaimed "Netflix accruate Megatron" is increasingly accurate, with Hasbro's first release being completely off the rails inaccurate.

    I was just about to make a post asking what the best Siege Megatron is (I'm down to the cell shaded one), but looks like this might be it.

    Pretty sure that's just an effect given off by a good paint job.

    Ever wonder if they keep favoring the siege Megatron because even they think ER\'s spear thing is stupid?

    Was not a fan of that Optimus.  Still need to throw mine up on ebay.

    Why do they keep putting battle damage on Megatron ? We already have 2 chrome paint battle damaged Megatrons from the same mold. This is the biggest joke Takara must be smoking the biggest crack rocks in the Eastern hemisphere. Bumble Prime is at least tempting because its a chance to get the better deco without having to buy a crappy G1 Prime to go with it. I dont know why they dont give Earthrise Megatron and Prime the premium metallic paint treatment with ZERO battle damage. Something that doesnt already exist.

    Is that a tease of a Premium Finish BB Starscream? Those colors aren't nearly as muted on the standard release.

    If Takara thought it was dumb, why design it that way?

    Oh man this is amazing! This is the seventh* release for arguably the best G1 Megatron mold in years (plus 2 more for its ER retool), and fans still cannot get a clean G1 deco.

    It's just another takara digibash. Like what they did with the beige seeker.

    Seriously....!

    Out of all the damn SIEGE Megatron repaints they've thrown at us the last 3 years would it have killed Hasbro to create one Tarn or even The Fallen (DW version) out of this mold???!

    It's beyond ridiculous at this point!

    Props to them for using the Siege variant of the Megatron mold. This is version 9 for those counting. Getting to be like Iron Man suits. I do wish they just left off all the battle damage nonsense. Is it so hard to do a clean Megatron out of this mold? No cel shade, etc? Just clean?

    I don\'t remember BB Prime being on the list of upcoming figures. The second one on the list looked like another Bumblebee and I think the only movie Prime was from the 07 movie.
