    So if Bay made him this taller than prime in tlk, would people accept his height? And would you still want to squish him anymore? Don't let Bay control what you buy so much...

    Yeah, some people have very high expectations, I think the anal retentive people are very hard to please... Regardless of what some people think, this figure is going to sell very well. The good >> the bad and that's what people fail to see.

    I am also going to buy Knight Orion in spite of some proportions issues in robot and alt-mode because overall, the figure seems to be quite good.

    That happened in Age of Extinction, when he was Galvatron.

    I wonder if UT had Megatrons original height (35ft) in mind when they designed Dragoon, or if the just don't really give a damn about scale at all. The only figures from them to scale with one another seems to be Dragoon and La Hire.

    A wild custom! Brave, but still crazy.
    actually breaking stuff, that's going too far for me. The most I'm gonna do is maybe add some chrome here and there...

    I just couldn't resist that paint scheme and it's been a long while since I added a piece to my Nemesis/Scourge collection

    What is the Toy World TLK Megatron I keep seeing pop up here? Is it actually anything or just hopeful expectations?

    Hopeful speculations.

    They might release an artwork and forget about it if people seem interested.
    *Cough cough* Crosshairs *cough cough*

    And countless of others but no one as important as Crosshairs

    Looks quite good, the custom paint job adds a lot to the figure.

    Daaayum that's some nice paintwork! If UT released one like that I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

    That makes no sense at all. The whole point is to get figures of characters from the movie, not things that look vaguely similar. Plus it doesn't feel right for Megatron to have the lanky body type. It doesn't fit the movie appearance AND it doesn't fit the character. Don't let UT control what you buy so much...
    Yes good point! So it would also make sense for Dragoon to be around the same height as Challenger...
    I didn't break anything. He's still fully transformable and has full posability and all that and you can't even see the damage in truck mode except for the smoke stacks :D

    that's truly nonsense. getting figure of character from movie is not necessary the whole point to make the toy figure at all. plus, i haven't decided to buy it yet. UT has no control. Bay controls your "whole point".

    Wow you take everything so seriously. Yes it's important to make a figure that looks like the character it's representing. That's just how this works. If you like the less accurate look then good for you I don't give a shit but most people want a figure of something they saw that they liked. Or else why are you buying Transformers? Go buy some gobots.

    I love the equipment he gets in his 5th movie incarnation and how this figure looks with all of it attatched, really does scream "gladiator" with the sword, shield and cybertronian gun
