    Agreed! I'll try to snag one if I see it in stores!
    You know, not having a MP Megatron makes me feel so melancholy...


    Somewhere over the rainbow
    Way up high
    And the dreams that you dreamed of
    Masterpiece Megatron..... Where are you...

    He looks great next to the MPs. Looking forward to adding him next to my MP Decepticons.

    Great pics!

    See..see as always pixs by the fans have proven time & again, they're better than Hasbro's atrocious heavily photoshopped & lamely posed stock photos.

    Thank you bro, you've made this leader Megs look awesome & makes me anticipate my pre-order even more. :thumbs2:

    Very nice! Interesting to see the Leader Megatron lined up with the others like that. I actually think he looks pretty cool, although I'm all in for Apollyon myself. Great photos. :) 

    Love this one. :D 

    Great stuff, and interesting to see Hot Rod and Rodimus lined up next to each other like that. I love Rodimus' alt' mode but so rarely use it because of the issues with his spoiler scratching etc. Shame!

    Well, feel free to get snapping yourself, of course. :lol  ;)

    Stick some articulated hands on that leader Megs and I think it would make a pretty cool figure, I might even pick one up and give it a try.

    I think he needs (in the voice of Forest Gump) "New legs".

    Yeah, the more I see of him he's starting to grow on me. I'm especially loving those cassettes.

    Been debating about snagging a new MP figure since I got my tax return... But I can't decide if I want Ultra Magnus, or Starscream! Anyone care to help me out with which one I should get?

    Ultra magnus
    Pros- awesome fun easy transformation, playability factor with car arrying etc.
    cons- chunky blocky physic and limited articulation

    Starscream
    pros- comes with coronation cape, crown megatron gun etc and is a must in any decepticon line up.
    cons- poor legs, no ankle pivot/rotation..... if you own one MP11 mold, you've seen it all before.

    Tough one. I would probably go with Magnus overall. He's very cartoon accurate, big, lots of fun and very impressive overall.

    I do also love Starscream, and if you don't yet own the MP-11 mould, then I would definitely recommend that you get at least one, in which case he's a great choice (although Skywarp is my personal favourite). The one thing about Starscream is that, at least in a lot of examples, his robot mode doesn't lock together that tightly.

    Also, look at the size of this bad boy!

    Someone found out that MP Starscream will be heading stateside. I'd hold off on buying him at $150.00+ right now, and see what pops up at Toys R' Us in the coming months. Supposedly will be $80.00 or less.

    Starscream is coming to TRU, I would wait and see on that instead of spending all that money when you might be able to get it for half the price over here.

    I just bought a masterpiece prowl from a thrift store on church Ave in brooklyn for $30 brand new. I opened it to see what's wrong with it but it's nothing wrong just the box have a little damage to it. I'm going to start collecting MP as soon as I can. This thing looks like it just jumped out of 1984. Touched every nostalgic nerve in me. She said there is a couple more in the basement but she is about to close for the day. I told her I will be back in the morn lol.

    I would definitely go with Magnus. He's just too much fun.

    Being able to put the matrix in his chest or have him hold it with the extra hands is just too cool.

    Oh, and the transformation is AWESOME.
