    They flipped up, but couldn't rotate like they did in the show.

    That worked well enough for beast mode but bot mode flight wasn’t possible.

    I’m still on the fence about this. It’s so puny like a happy meal toy that it doesn’t go with anything in my collection but, if the price is right, I’ll buy it purely in the hope of more tiny TM Beasties showing up.

    As others have said, on the original they could flip up but not forward. Luckily on this verson they're on ball joints, so they can flip in any direction you want- even upside down if you're feeling crazy.

    I like this version of BW Megs, and this looks very cool.
    And although I'm not looking to build a Beast Wars Legends collection, I'll just have so much fun posing this little guy next to MP-1. blowing his face off. : )

    Same here. Especially because the original TM Megatron is rather fragile.

    Plus I always thought the orignal was a bit small. Works okay-ish with the TM Predacons, but TM Optimus looks too big compared to him.

    (The MMC version likely won't look accurate enough to fill that gap.)

    Love the box art. Hopefully that Rhinox head means they are already preparing the next entry in this series.

    Not that I know either way, but I doubt there's a finalized figure in that box — a "color proof" is a sample printout that the client approves before they produce hundreds of copies

    This is really turning out to be my most wanted figure for the year! Really hope they continue with the rest of the cast :)

    I'm trying to fold a $50 up to fit in the SD card slot on my laptop and it's not working.

    Looks great, might have to repaint that face though. Hopefully he won't be too terribly expensive. I have the original and his Plastic seems okay at the moment, but I fear how much longer he can withstand transforming without snapping. (Which is the heartbreaking part of GPS in his hips. He has such a satisfying transformation sequence.)
