    That picture is of the model wizard one, someone just posted that in the comments. No exact size is known for the BmB one

    Welp, I guess I’m waiting until all versions are out and accounted for before I decide! But I want to get one, one way or another

    My bad. The lighting made it look like it was painted differently (brighter), plus the measurement was slightly taller (36cm vs 35cm), so I reached the wrong conclusion.

    Hindsight, to be in scale with LS03 he'd need to be around 37.5cm tall, so that 36cm is either a guess or typo for the MW stat.

    You know what...... From now on I'll probably just wait 6 months after official MPM releases to actually buy one version of the figure.

    yeah it's not like I hate this figure. I think it's a pretty decent mold, especially with superior and more accurate painting than the original. I only wait for some tweaks and adjustments other than 1:1 KO or 1:1 but upscaled. Something like
    Man, so many 2007 Megs all of a sudden. I really wish KO OS MPM Jazz will be announced soon. :bowdown:

    Model Wizard generally is more solid than Black Mamba in my experience, so unless BM comes in clutch with a ridiculous <$70 price tag I'll be getting this

    LEDs, price, die-cast, better paint, better scale with the rest of BMB/WJ bots. The usual. But sure, not much to do there, the original figure is pretty good already

    I think the original is at 1:29 though?

    Dunno, he's listed as 15.25cm on bbts which may be a little too small for the BMB OP. It could probably work with BA but I don't like my bots being too small :)  But enough about Jazz really unless someone posts THAT scene with this OS Meg :)

    They better put some good ratchet joints (IN BOTH DIRECTIONS) in those hips and knees for something that large with diecast. I don’t want a repeat of their ROTF Megatron which literally had the same hip joints as the studio series but enlarged; who’s stupid idea that was we’ll never know.

    In the interest of avoiding further confusion (which I fully accept that I started to create), I've made a separate thread for the Aoyi Mech "Not MPM-8". Since it's the figure that started it, it's probably best to leave this thread here for the EarthQuake (WJ MW) T-08 Shake Sky Wing.

    Thank you. I changed the names of both threads just to be a little more consistent, if that’s okay.


    From now on, any pictures and discussion exclusively about the BMB MPM Megatron should go to that thread. This one will remain for the Wei Jiang version
