    Well, I'm sold. I was thinking of sitting out on future non-MP lines because TLK, TR, and POTP left a sour taste in my mouth, but I'll make an exception here

    Glad to hear he turned out so fantastic!

    After seeing how good the CG model tank one was in Prime Wars trilogy, really glad this guy got that figure.

    And the C.O.M.B.A.T. system came out flipping amazing! Love how well implemented it looks to be.

    Man,those pictures look so good. I wasn't sure if I wanted Megatron before,but I can't wait to get him now.

    I also have the TFTM theme in my head after seeing these photos. I need to listen to that again.

    I am glad I passed on the last two Megatrons in Generations. Because I am really thinking of getting this version. Looks so good.

    Based on pics/reviews looks to be one of the best Megatrons as this size. A fusion cannon that fits on the lower arm without encumbering the upper arm is a much needed improvement on recent Megatron releases.

    I saw this guy at a local shop a couple days ago and have to admit they look even better in person. I think the blockiness of the torso is the only thing I don't really care for. The articulation looks great.

    I wonder... By the looks of things, the blades on the rifle Megs came with look like they can be removed. Do said blades 5mm port compatible?

    I just can't get behind the "weathering" as weathering. I see what they wanted to do, but I also see robot blood splatter.

    No...just no.

    Here is the correct proportions for a fusion cannon:

    You can keep the fusion cannon that looks like a dildo. I want one that looks like this.

    I’m convinced that Optimus Prime and Megatron from the War For Cybertron: Siege are worth buying, and if/when I do, it’ll be the first Transformers figures that I own.

    So far he's shaping up to be a 8/10. Not perfect but still the best CHUG Megatron there is to date IMO.

    I agree. The Siege Fusion cannon isn't as stupid looking as that Blitzwing pre-mold's Cigarette holder was but it still could've been better.
