    It’s funny, I was thinking the other day that the PrimeVsPrime kid sounds just like the announcer guy for Meineke that also did lifestyles of the rich and famous...

    ME: Ha ha nice try Hasbro, but I already have the cel-shaded Siege Megatron, and the Combat Megatron deco. No way I'm buying the Earthrise mold.
    HASBRO: (mixing enormous buckets of green, purple, and orange paint) Is that right

    Received G2 Megatron from pulse today and wow did they absolutely nail the deco! The colors are as close to identical as I could have imagined possible. Whomever designed the paint master deserves major applause for this effort. I especially like how they echoed the purple barrel bisecting the tank turret using the purple fusion cannon, very clever. I just wish they'd remolded it a tad more to get the cannon to sit on his shoulder properly. Also, paging toyhax to add the "M" waist sticker and the "big stick" on the barrel. (And maybe a connector to realign the shoulder cannon?)

    I've had the original since I bought it at retail in '93 and its always been a favorite of mine both for its imposing size and unabashedly 90's deco. Here is is with my original.

    And with the last selects Megatron. They really look like brothers in 90's evil!

    selects 3.jpg selects1.jpg selects2.jpg

    Ok, one more green tank homage... combiner wars era Armada Megatron as well... You can really see the design progression through these. The bisecting barrels and the way the feet on the new guy look like the back of the tread sections on the Armada one.

    I'd paint the inner vents black instead, like this (sorry I couldn't find a better quality example):

    Gives a similar effect in robot mode while looking much better in vehicle mode.

    Is it all WFC clear plastics? Because I've heard about people using alcohol to remove the scratching from Siege Soundwave's chest without any issues. Seeing that that lightbar is molded in clear plastic makes me really want to try to correct it, since the lightbar being painted solid red was my main disappointment with Prowl (assuming it's the same way with Ratchet, so they can be made to match. And obviously assuming I'm ever able to actually acquire them...).

    Sure, there may be exceptions, but I don’t think anyone is going to test on all types.

    Edit: There may be other factors like strength and exposure times.

    Really glad to finally have these two BBF’s underneath the (mini) Christmas tree:

    Sidenote, these two look so much better in person than they do in photos.
