    no one is telling you to to buy it and it’s shitty to you but there’s plenty of folks that really like it. Is it over used? Maybe but it can always be someone’s first go with it

    Ebay:
    Hasbro on Siege Megatron: No but THIS time!...lol.

    I’m starting to feel like they never really wanted to make Earthrise Megatron. They want the Siege model to ‘stick’.

    it’s not hasbro it’s takara and there’s a difference. Hasbro has nothing to do with this release and no they didn’t want to use ER Megatron because that version of the figure is not in the show. This whole line is about making the figures look as close as possible to how they looked in the show or movie they appeared in

    was hoping for some chrome wheels and bumpers on prime. Oh well. Still looks nice and I could never find the original at retail.

    Me: Oh my god enough with the Siege Megatron mold already!

    Also Me: ... damn, that does look good though.


    It's weird, for both of these releases, I'm fairly content with the original paint jobs on them, certainly not enough to pay 50% more for a second take on them. For those who missed out or need a fully silver Megatron, they're getting their best chance finally with no weird half-assing that Hasbro pulled with the Netflix figure. For BB Optimus, buyers are getting... a slightly nicer version of an excellent figure. So these aren't for me, but in a small way I envy those who are getting these molds for the first time with these paint jobs, that's going to be a lot of fun for them. Obviously, that Optimus is the superior toy, but I like that Megatron as well.

    same. I have most the releases because I like them but I can’t justify it. I envy those who get Megatron because it’s a very nice deco but I only got room for few megatrons. Earthrise, G2, one siege and super Megatron and even then super Megatron is floating around the shelf because there really no spot for him but god damn I love that figure a lot and am not regretting getting him one bit

    Ironic that this came out today. I kept hitting this Wal-Mart in a really rural area that still had NF wave 1 Megatron. I decided after last time I would pick it up to have a Megatron for the MTMTE shelf. And they sold both Megatrons when I stopped by.
    Now I'm like do I want to pay $60 for this one, and move my old megs to MTMTE, get the NF third spoiler pack, or wait for eBay to get flooded with unwanted NF Megs in August? :)

    Argh just give us a clean, shiny metallic painted version of this Megs and be done with it already! I just picked up the Netflix spoiler pack Megs. He is great, but I’m not really a fan of the battle damage.

    has Netflix wave been sighted? I don’t make it out much hunting lately but was wondering if they’re route in the US yet. I wanted Megatron even though I have the first Netflix megs because I like the accessories but then I realized “oh…Galvatron is coming with a matrix on a chain. I don’t need this” but I do want the sparkles seeker

    Super Megatron is who I'm using as my WFC stand-in, but I suppose the PF version is good as an option for anyone who somehow hasn't bought an instance of the Siege/ER moulds yet.

    Really want to see Springer or Apeface with a primo deco, but I doubt they'll appear in a show-centric line.

    Not this one. The ones this Wal-Mart had was the wave 1 with battlemasters. This is a REAALLY rural area. I've been cherry picking stuff that I overlooked for the last few months.
    I'm waiting for sparkless seeker too.

    Definitely getting Optimus. May get Megatron since I preordered the Siege PF Prime. I have the Netflix one but looks like he’ll be leaving

    I said it when SG Megatron preorders went up & I can't believe I'm saying it again:

    I'm really buying Siege Megatron again?!

    I wasnt expecting to like how PF megatron looks as much as I do! I still want the netflix spoiler one though for those pretty blue blast effects, the ballpark and that matric bandalier

    I'm finding myself complaining about how overused the Siege Megatron mold is but at the same time.....if I'm being honest it's kind of nice to see a MEGATRON getting this kind of treatment more than Optimus for once.
