    looks big enough to scale with BA Optimus. no idea if it changes the transformation, looks to be a straight upscale

    This does put a smile on my face.

    Definitely interested in this, but I hope this version also has the fixed ratchet joints and diecast that the Hone6 Badger one has.

    Dang that this is massive. My honey badger is arriving shortly so I'll have to see how he feels/ looks in hand first, but knowing this guy will go much better with BA Optimus...I may end up having two Megatrons XD

    Which is definitely not a bad thing.

    If the quality is alright, I'm definitely going for this guy. Megatron is big, but I like him bigger.

    BA is gonna be a while even if they decided right now to do this guy. Their prime was well over a year ( and they still haven't been able to send all the orders out) and now they recently announced an their own Ironhide...

    I have no doubt they will do him... eventually, but until then, this guy would be a great fill in :)

    Yeah I’m not waiting for them to do that. This one seems good as long as the hips and ankles aren't bad like on the official.

    As for the backpack, for anyone that owns this mold, is there any way to remove pieces of the backpack via screws or something? Just curious, not a big deal if not

    Looks like that is the other option that somebody saw in an eBay listing.

    This is nice BUT for now I'm perfectly satisfied with my BMB ROTF OS Megatron. Secondly - never been a fan of that massive kibble MPM-8 has on his back.
    So if my BMB Meg is ever getting a brother it has to be a better mold :p

    I was just wondering that. Those images above seem to match the ones in that eBay listing with the lighter silver compared to the Honey Badger

    I don't think we'll ever get a MPM 2007 megs with less of a backpack than this.
    And, correct me if im wrong, but isnt he actually meant to have those small "wings" on his back?

    I think the cgi model was never carrying that much of a mess on his back.

    Who knows? Look how clean UT's TLK Meg is. I'm sure there has to be a way to hide the jet parts better.

    There mostly likely isn’t. Considering that the torso is used for hiding the entire jet nosecone there’s no room for any additional kibble storage in there.
