Transformers x Quiccs: Megatron Vinyl Bust, Pre-Orders Open May 29th - Transformers News - TFW2005
i love it. was bummed i missed out on soundwave but i kinda like this better
I need to ask, who buys these? Like I know they look cool and all but what\'s the appeal?
I think you answered your question.
And not my cup of tea either but cool for those that like them.
@TheoryGuy2003 Just look at the description. It appeals to silly people (that\'s a compliment) - people that\'s more open-minded with their TF property & tons of money.
@Fallout Of course you love it. This Meg\'s pose is exactly like your profile thumbnail!
What I find weird though is why sculpt a G1 Megatron statue with tank threads with a pirate theme Bone & Skull helmet badge? Pirate uses boat armed with cannons, they don\'t use tanks. Wouldn\'t the classic G1 Walther P-38 Megatron, with his gun barrel sticking up his back even more appropriate? And sculpt it like an old-timey warship cannon even cooler?
And I\'m not even mentioning Gun Meg is far more popular than Tank Meg with the Fanbase)
Autobots have been leading the ring at Party Night with Bumblebee’s MC-ing, but the Decepticons are not to be outdone. Representing the pillar of street art and graffiti, Megatron is here to show off his creative prowess! With his menacing grin and imposing stature, be glad that the only kind of bombing he’s gonna be doing today is graffiti! With his metallic spray can, the leader of Decepticons paints the town black, literally!
It feels like the words used to make this paragraph were forced to do so against their will.
Megatron's most diabolical plan yet.
Missed opportunity to make his spray paint can the spray paint can Botbot.
That Megatron has an interesting design. Man would I love a Voyager scale of that.
I feel like graffiti kind of feels out-of-character for Megatron.
Graffiti and party-crashing mischief would more in character for someone like Sideswipe rather than Megatron.
If anything, Megatron in a party scenario is the grumpy neighbor telling the kids to turn the music down while he's trying to sleep.
Maybe RiD Sideswipe. Honestly I'd feel Rumble and Frenzy would be the graffiti type of bots. The two basically are your typical punks that just have natural piledrivers.
Come to think of it, Soundweave & his Crew would be totally be into graffiti. Though i can totally see Megatron looking at them doing Graffiti one time and would go "Wait, this looks utterly chaotic, what is this?" before Soundwave explains things and the the mention of it being a crime gets Megatron excited for some reason.
Oh & Runabout and Runamuck would TOTALLY be into graffiti. If the Marvel comics is anything to come by.
Goodo to those who like the visual look of these vinyl busts.
I do like these busts. It's an acquired taste. However, my prefererence is: natural > silicon > vinyl.

The skull and crossbones is Quiccs' logo. It's on their Soundwave and their Bumblebee too.
The Quiccs badge I get. It's the tank threads sculpt that I don't. The original G1 wasn't a tank. G2 was (and onward), in a different color and design. So why? Googling a bit, the answer to my question is: "Evergreen Megatron"
I don't think that's a bad thing. It kinda suits him, don't you think?
I actually like Megatron as a tank more as I like my "Megatron Da Boss" to be tough & imposing. I always thought it ridiculous that Hasbro chose Megatron from a gun toy, worse still in the cartoon he'd let Starscream & Soundwave handle him in alt-mode. I guess he doesn't have trust issues like all mob bosses do, lol. I just wished that Hasbro made the wise decision for G1 Megatron way back in the 80's during the brand's conception phase, so we don't have this "Megatron can no longer be a gun" fiasco we have to deal with since. But it is what it is.
I'm also fine with most of the Evergreen designs. It's just too bad Hasbro didn't want to invest in a line of solid (mass retail) toys for the designs.
Exactly. Although I do get a kick out of reading about the number of times people have tried to misuse Megatron by making others think they are actually armed, LOL~!
