That can't be said for sure until these things pop up in European stores.

Figueroa's a hugely talented guy, but because he's come through fandom there's a tendancy to lionise him.

I wonder what this Megatron's story is supposed to be. His alt mode suggests post-Earth-arrival.

Aout Figueroa. I really like his Macromasters kitbashes, but the toys I know that are his designs (Energon dinobots, this Megatron) I don't care much. Perhaps Figueroa's designs don't work that well for mass produced toys?

Would I be right in guessing the intention was to do WW Megs but for whatever reason they found they couldn't get it to work in toy form (at vleast within the paramaters of this toyline)?

Still, WW Op is a must for me now I know he actually Transforms and isn't just a statuette thing.

I guess that reference just flew right over my head.

Don't get me wrong, I like his designs (usually) and his art (I haven't really seen any of his kitbashes). But something about this Megatron just really...I don't know. It was highly disappointing, I'll just leave it at that, I guess.

Did a quick google search, but didn't find confirmation. Might be my mistaken memory. Apologies.

Okay...so his kit bashes are cool. He needs to work on his photagraphy though.

Not a single one of them are in focus or easy to see. Is this on purpose?

It's the sort of "on purpose" where something was done several years ago, when reasonable digital cameras weren't cheap, I think.

You can't in all seriousness tell me that Megatron is any worse than the original. For a start it's got actual proportions...

Just because I live in Texas, doesn't mean I'm from here. Believe me, if I could do the job I do anywhere else, I would. But this is the one and only place.
