    Optimus seems to be missing some paint compared to his SS version (see shoulders and kneepads). The weathering is solid and there are other dabs of paint to make up for it though - the small bits of red on the abs go a long way.

    Not sure if it's been done before, but here's a chart I put together comparing the two Voyagers, Three Zero and the movie model:

    This would be the perfect G-1 prime if he only had a stronger sculpt for his head! If only someone made a more movie-accurate headsculpt.  The lack of detail on the faceplate, and had longer, possibly thinner horns, It\'d be amazing. 

    Still probably will get him though..  dang you hasbro..

    I like the muted reds and the chest markings but I'm not sure I'd want to double dip just for that.

    Is it just me, or are the shoulders on this guy lower than they\'re supposed to be? Probably won\'t be that way on the final product, but it\'s just a thing I noticed.

    Something about the back of the legs in that last shot looks so appealing,, I can't put my finger on it. I'm probably going nuts but the black plastic just looks really good to me and the whole figure somehow appears sturdier than the Hasbro version. Almost certainly just a perspective thing, though.

    It's to the point now I'm starting to feel bad for this megatron mold. It's a really good figure, but man is it getting old. How many are we at now? 7?

    I'm guessing the good Megatron head (Siege) must also be part of the Siege-exclusive Megatron parts mold and maybe that is why it hasn't been seen on the Earthrise body. I'm still waiting on my ideal Megatron, even with all the different releases.

    it's really an incredible deco, but I'm so tired of this mold now and Netflix (both versions) were pretty darn good too.

    love the extra red bits on this guy, but the gunmetal finish on NF is amazing.

    You feel bad for a mold? Like you think that molds are sentient beings that feel pain, every time that they're used?

    Tbh i think this mold is a little overrated. It's cool but there's a fair bit of jankiness that just doesn't feel good to me. Not quite apples to apples but I still have the wfc megatron and that thing feels and looks so much better imo.

    Yes. My heart breaks every time I see a repaint in a store.

    Totally skipping this. Im still pissed I gotta buy a 2nd slightly different metallic battle damaged Megatron just to get the purple fossilizer. Takara should have skipped the "netflix" decos and done nice metallic zero battle damage decos like only Takara can do.
