    I passed on Mp36.... but HAD to have 36+

    20190111_221513-01.jpeg

    The new paintjob is amazing. This Megatron is *so* striking in hand - the classic face sculpt and chest parts really make him and that ChROME! Wow!

    Whilst i can understand why some people won't like the chrome... i personally love it, and as it relfects the environment it can make for some really dramatic pictures (like in the gallery) and some others like Sam and Thundercracker and a few others have put up.

    Highly recommended figure.

    I don't need it - am very happy with the OG version - but I can’t deny that G1 box art pose pic is about as perfect as things get. Outstanding.

    So Ironhide wouldn't have a head and half the characters would have bricks for legs?

    And most arm articulation would consist of at most one hinge.

    Have there been any reports on how the chrome & paint on MP-36+ holds up to transformation?

    After all the chipping issues with the original, I'm curious to know how this will hold up.

    Shockwave would rule the Decepticons for the simple fact that he could bend his knees.

    Ok, gonna be honest, for a second I read that as "increased intelligence and virility" 0.o

    But yes that Ironhide would be what happens if "the show has to look exactly like the toys!" mindset had won out in the Sunbow cartoon.

    I have a burning question. Months ago a third party company made a toy head for MP Megatron, and it looks so close to this new Takara head. Is it just a weird coincidence or is it a knockoff somehow even though it came before??

    It was just that industrial espionage took place from the side of the Chinese, when they stole the 3D files of the drawings of this head from the Japanese.

    That looks so beautiful. I really wanted it when it was announced but I can't rationalize the price they're asking for it, even though I love MP-36. If it ever goes down in price I'll jump on it for sure especially after seeing these pics!

    That\'s just... wow. I never realized just how bland the cartoon accurate Megatron was until I saw this.
