    I won't say "it is 100% certain that it will break..." but be careful when transforming it.

    This is awesome, I need to give this a try. I know too well about the 'falling to pieces' issue of the TM Megatron... I bought mine on ebay about two years ago and the second I picked it up and transformed him to robot mode, one of his arm broke. I glued it back in place, and that was fine for a while. The very next time I tried to transform him, his arm broke again, but far beyond repair this time. Then not too long ago I transformed him again and his other arm and head broke off. Now I've simply given up on this figure. Well, that was until now that is! xD

    It is, it just functions like GPS which is why people call it that. Really it should be called BPS, or Really-Weak-BPS.

    when your tm megatron crumles to death from gps just alvage the head and build it onto rid megatrons body that way you have a figure of a ressurected bw/bm megatron in your collection

    waist is super easy to repait... I just mad a hole inside to chestcavity towards to bottom section and drive in a pretty long screw :D 

    but yeah it could always break just exactly the way it can't be reapaired..

    so mine was simple, but then turned it into grimlock after the arm broke :p

    I had this and an Optimus Primal once when I was a kid, but returned them, b/c I felt like I wasted my money. I could kick myself for that now.
