    The only thing I like about the new Megatron is the earth style tank treads. I wonder if it’s possible to swap them over to the Siege versions because that’s the only way I’ll buy this toy.

    Earthrise Optimus really impressed me, it’s a shame Megatron didn’t get the same treatment.

    I’m going to be contrary and say ER Megatron looks fine. Netflix Megatron is still an overall better figure...but it seems more put together than Siege. Head is more spot on. I’m going to try to hold of and see if they make an enhanced version.

    I actually enjoyed Energon. >.> Man, that’s what we need a third party to make that first basic space jet with the Energon spear with proper knees.

    i like megs new tank treads, might try and make a hybrid. also i see what people mean about him holding his weapon wrong now, looks like he should be holding it upright by the peg above the "sword" blade

    Dude, this is a far better idea. I’m totally incorporating it into my head cannon. The Quints would definitely be monkeying around with spark experiments.

    Netflix Megatron can't be beat in my eyes, but Earthrise Megatron is just different enough that I won't mind buying the G2 deco rumored to be coming in the Selects line.

    Energon as a toyline was great. The Energon cartoon was one of the worst cartoons I've ever seen. Somehow, I once had someone tell me the Energon cartoon was better than Beast Wars. To this day, I'm convinced he was on drugs at the time. :p 

    They actually prefer the pronoun "quinte-self".

    Exactly. Why wouldn't the Quintesson Judge's 5 Faces ever not be on the same body AND rotate?!

    The Energon Decepticons were pretty solid. The Energon Autobots that weren't utterly beholden to the Powerlinx Gimmick were potentially great (Landmine, for example, is still one of my favorite figures). However, the majority of the Autobots? Rubbish.

    I'd rather it be a G2 purple Megatron...mostly so I can quit kicking myself for not having Transformers Legends LG-63 G2 Megatron... :( 

    Besides, didn't we already have a green G2 Megatron in the Selects line? Or does Combat Megatron not count?

    So I like the idea of reusing parts to make new figures like the siege to earthrise prime, especially if it means we are getting better quality across the board. But this megatron comes off as so lazy, and uninspired, it\'s looks more like an SDCC exclusive redeco than a mainline release. The original version of this mold shelfwarmed to begin with. This megs I have a feeling will shelfwarm even more

    There were a few gems like Inferno, but yeah, the two bot combiner guys were really weak.

    I had Inferno, Tow-Line, and Hot Shot. Inferno and Tow-Line were pretty good. Hot Shot was not. Rodimus looked good but since I never had him I can't speak to his actual quality.
