    Guys, I'm sorry that you start arguing before you get my solid message with arguments, so I have to answer you. I don’t know which movie you are watching, but in the 2007 film Megatron appears in 3 scenes, and always looks the same. It is very richly painted, and never looks like a piece of shiny polished steel (as LS12). These are random screenshots (see in fullcscreen mode PC) from the movie, see how rich it is in bronze shades, and compare them with WJ's paint color. With the exception of damage and old metal, in general it is extremely similar to what we see in the film, study it in my rough photos. If you are going to argue, please confirm your opinion with documents. Thanks! Support me, who trusts me and is waiting for my detailed answer with great evidence and images. T08 is the most similar color of the whole figure.

    Okay so I told myself today is the day I get one of those ko megatrons to go with my legendary toys ko prime. I think I bought the wrong one on AliExpress. It says 35cm so I think I made a mistake. I was hoping to get the 1.1 ko to scale with mpm prime. How big is this guy next to the original or ko mpm prime? Anyone able to help with a pic. I messaged the seller as soon as I realised I made the mistake so hopefully I can get a refund to get my 1.1.

    This is an oversized KO, 35-36cm. Look for honey badger Megatron for a 1:1 KO.

    I had this guy saved in my cart on ShowZStore and was going to buy him today, but now he is sold out there. Can anyone recommend where else to buy this guy for a similar price (~$80)?

    Are they pretty good to buy from? I'd never heard of them before.

    They are legitimate. This is my first time using them since they have a couple of vanishing transformers instock. PayPal is their only form of payment so I'm protected.

    I've purchased several items from TFSafari. They are in good standing with me. Be prepared to wait for customs to play kickball with the packaging for a month before you get it in, but other than this (which is completely outside their control) they are A-OK!

    Pricing is good, perpetual discount codes, good inventory, exclusive gap fillers, and they even throw in extra goodies from time to time. I am waiting for a couple of items to come out of China right now, in fact.

    My shown up today, I only got the chance to take it out of the box, but damn it's bigger in person than I thought. I'm gonna have to make more room for it, but other than that it looks and feels great.
