    Dang, that looks really good in-hand, probably better than this mold deserves. All of a sudden I'm a little embarrassed for how simple this mold is, I like this mold but with this paint it seems like the awkwardly-positioned fists, the knee that kinda gaps out, the ankle that won't lock into position, the head that dips into the chest, all these foibles worked better on lesser paint schemes than on a $53 version which looks this solid. Oh well, if nothing else this paint scheme highlights how awesome this mold can look, and given the gajillion repaints of it already, that's good news for each of us who has one.

    I’m buying this guy and Premium Siege Optimus because I do like their in-show appearances quite a bit. As many faults as there are with it, I do like the Netflix series. Paint is, at long last, accurate to the show.

    But good lord this will be the last time. Definitely no to the Wave 3 Spoiler pack. SG Megatron at least has a third mode and a substantially different paint deco (and comic)

    meh.

    Kinda wish they did him one last time in the WFC line with just a bit better proportions, hands and more paint detail that isn't wear and tear. This fig is pretty good but just a touch too low quality in certain areas for the toy Megatron deserves in this line. Overall though, I am really glad that WFC was the toyline during my sons' 6-10 age era, I really enjoyed reliving G1 with them. Great experience for all of us!

    Exactly my position, it hurts that I wanted SG Megatron for many years only for them to use this mold...again. I'll still pick up my former Grail...but good grief someone drop the mold by "accident" PLEASE!

    Honestly not a huge fan how seeing the in-hand pictures, I don't like how pixelated the battle damage looks. I still like the more uniform silver deco but I think I'll stick with my customized Netflix one (unless I find this one for super cheap or something).

    At this rate, this mold is going to outlive the entire WFC Trilogy.
