Looks great apart from the facial expression, but Convoy/Prime was the same.

Still not liking the legs, still look a bit skinny -and he's wearing flares- they just don't seem to match the bulk of his upper body. Still i appreciate the technical prowess transformation its just that i don't "feel" it. Would've been much nicer to see a G2 Megs MP'd, though whether or not i would be able to stand the barrage of people complaining about it not being a gun i don't know.

All I can say is...



But really, my only complaint is his lack of eyebrows...but then, there's very little room between his eyes and the helmet anyway.

Ooh, nice. The hollow-ish legs are my only issue, but if that stops us from getting a trigger-crotch, it's worth it. And my god that gun looks even more huge than usual, somehow.

Sheer perfection.

I'm sure they're there, it's just the angle of the head reduces how much we can see, and the lighting leaves only slight definition. Bit I'm positive I see 'em.

Fantastic. Articulation on limbs appears to be basic, but the overall execution leaves little to be desired. Fantofan has larger scans.

The color certainly ties the whole package together, doesn't it?

Itís probably just me but...the more I see this, the more I come to realize how similar it is to the original '84 model. It strikes me more as an up-grade, which is understandable when you consider youíre squeezing a whole lot of Megatron into such a thin alt. mode. Taking that into mind, MP Megatron is perfect. It looks like Takara utilized the narrow space from the gun mode more effectively this time around. Though it looks like it will be the same olí dog with vastly new and improved tricks, itís a gorgeous piece nonetheless.

Whooooooo-ahhhhh!

Mine, mine, mine.....

He's even more like the original with the colours on! I can live with the legs providing that, yes, the trigger goes out of 'obvious' sight in root mode. But what a fabulous gun mode, with the faction symbol on the side so prominently. It could prove difficult to decide how to display him, just like Screamer.

numbat - the eyebrows do look like they are there, too, just as I had hoped.

Nice. But it is indeed a shame about the face. MP Starscream's face was a little weird, too.

I dunno about that, comparing to the face of MP Screamer, Megs' face looks decidedly less weird.

For sure. And I'm also happy that it's not like this:
