    Yep. Show Z and I think TF Direct are the only ones so far. I hope we'll get a final price after these pictures.

    Transformation seems unnecessarily finnicky and I wasn't a fan of that "slide the fans and head along on that swiveling waist hinge" thing the original did.
    The connection of the fans seems fragile too.
    I'm still buying this though. Because I want more legends scaled BW toys :D

    Is it just me or does the figure not look chromed/ metallic enough?

    Looks like he needs some ankle tilts, otherwise he looks great

    Head is different too. He now has a smirk

    Which Blue streak and smoke screen are in that pic?, I'm trying to figure out scale. If it's MFT then he's larger and may be closer to regular figure size and not legends.

    Yeah, TW and TF Elements need to get pre-orders up for their BW stuff. I was pretty excited to start getting some BW legends figures, but it is starting to look like Iron Factory's Megatron ( and maybe their OP) will be the only one to ship this year.

    I still don't get why the chest is silver. But oh well.

    Yeah, I can’t see why it’s silver as there’s no need for any silver panels in bot mode and they’re hidden under the pauldrons after transformation so it should be made to match the brown. Just makes no sense- unless his chest was actually a different colour in the show... I’m having odd memory flashes of it looking a bit funky now. Time to investigate.

    Edit: Yes, the ‘under-lining’ of his neck is silver which is only apparent when he’s really stretching his neck out but that’s not the area the figure has made grey- those panels should definitely match the rest of the body.
    Obviously not a huge issue for a figure at this scale but it’s good to get an early start on all the perfectionist nitpicking I’ll be getting up to when the MPM is revealed :D
