    now that is an objective that is hopefully going to be successfully pulled off if the articulation proves more than what it shows once it ships out

    maybe XD

    but i do want to at least get more than what i'd be invested on with ROTF and DOTM based designs for 3rd party figures like Megs here, considering that the previous years focused more on AOE and TLK, it's high time for them to give us figures from the first 3 movies that were at least a grouped trilogy, as supposed to the heavily retconned ones

    Mods change the thread name to something more informative and worthy of Unique Toys...

    I suggest

    With the cab section being in his foot they must be taking some loose ‘inspiration’ from the ss leader figure which had the same inverted transformation scheme

    WHOA DANG! That is one amazing-looking figure! I admit I am worried about the knee bend though. At least he didn't do anything too dynamic in this form in the film, but more posability is never a bad thing and limbs should have at least 90 degrees bend. Just from the look alone in both modes though I feel like this is a success for UT. Man I love the look of the mismatched hands and all the truck bits. This is my second favorite movie megatron design behind TLK, but this one has the advantage of having been in a much better film.

    Hahaha, AlienAttack who? Insane. They've managed to capture his hulking, intimidating and downright.. hobo-esque? silhouette in a nearly perfect fashion and it looks like it'll be UT's best figure yet. I can't believe they seem to be improving with every design.

    that's a concern of mine as well, it could just be them not being all ham with the articulation, so there's probably more bend to it compared to what they even show (seems like the ankle tilt is as limited as it could show from that point from the bulk of it)

    not to mention the fact that the calf and surrounding knee armor looks rather open to move out of the way, but i suppose UT didn't do it that way to not give away all of the bells and whistles, but who knows-

    Amazing! Really nice, gosh maybe i should just focus on this figure and pre order it instead of AAT. Looks so accurate and really nice detail. My only question for now is what will be the difference between battle damaged and original? For the battle damaged I'm thinking that they could just do a decapitated megatron head and spine for the end battle of DOTM. Any ideas as to what the difference will be?

    Seems like he has a lot more diecast on him than previous releases from UT.

    Hopefully the joints will have strong enough ratchets to hold the weight.

    He probably does, but if not he does have the ab-crunch.
