    Damn so I didn't want this Megatron as I have no attachment to G2 atall but I have that Optimus from the TR boxset and they do seem to compliment each other really well.

    Maybe if I see that G2 Megatron at a reduced price I might bite, I love the mold for Earthrise and those gastly colours work wonders.

    Sunstreaker's color matching with the yellow paint definitely looks way better in person. He's certainly a pain to photograph.

    Hey now, he also does forcefields! Now if his IDW version could steal cable, he'd be the most popular bot on the Lost Light.
    Heh, I still have my original G2 megs. Maybe I'll regret not getting this one, but right now I feel like I've got enough good Megatrons.

    Come to think of it, G2 Megs was one of the first new molds in G2, and really felt special due to Megatron not getting as much love as Optimus. Also finally being a tank, which contrary to what some people will say, a lot of kids in the 80's felt would have been a good idea.

    How can I get Mucks faux wheels to be flush so car mode actually look good? Target needs to start shipping Runabout and Thrust! My copy of Sunstreaker will not tab in well, Runamuck is kinda like that too

    I've got some Voyager-scale ion blasters showing up any day now. Got tired of waiting for Hasbro.

    The only solution I’ve seen is chopping them off.

    They do lock into place under the car and are barely visible.

    Where is Buzzsaw already?

    I'm seriously - where?

    How do I have a Wingthing already but no Buzzsaw????

    Hasbro - come on. COME ON.

    Matrix Workshop? If so, then be prepared to file down the oversized handles. It’s not worth breaking OP’s thumb over.

    Netflix blaster on left (best version since it's molded in black plastic), POTP OP/NP blaster on right
    op3.jpg

    Centurion Pack blaster on left, G1 Reissue blaster on right (doesn't fit properly despite longer handle)
    op2.jpg

    Kingdom blaster on left (doesn't fit properly), Perfect Effect (3p) PC-16 blaster on right
    op1.jpg
    For the PC-16 blaster, prefer this version over the updated ones from the PE-DX10 and 11 remolds (don't like the new notched barrel although it adds blast effects compatibility).

    Anyone else received their figure without the back piece to complete the transformation?

    It was sealed with the plastic ties and a space for the back piece in the plastic shell just like Hub Cap.

    Oh, yes, they call him the Streak.....

    My Sunstreaker doesn't tab into car mode well either. Looks good when it's done, but a bit of a pain to get there.

    I really want a Buzzsaw figure. And yes, it's weird that we gave us Wingthing but not Buzzsaw. Hasbro loves doing recolors for easy money, so you'd think they would have made one.
