Default Brilliant!

I am so pleased with this masterpiece Megatron, granted the head looks a bit odd (it's missing the black 'eyebrow lines' that Megatron has in the cartoon), but it is absolutely brilliant!

The toy is mine! It just doesn't know it yet!

I didn't even notice that until you mentioned it. I don't think it'd look right with the eyebrows, though. I couldn't take it seriously, like that. I think he's got a really cold-blooded look to him.

Okay, now let's contemplate on the repaint possibilities.

Black helmet comic version for an e-hobby exclusive, and "black megatron" as a gun-robo homage.

I know you're joking, but he still wouldn't fit into the storyline...

But anyway, I think I finally figured out what's wrong with his face. The facial features are 'soft', instead of the obviously angular, flat surfaces of the cartoon model. They don't need to draw those black lines we've always seen, they just need to make his face more sharply angular so light reflects off it the right way.

True, though this doesn’t prove much, but the patent sketches we saw awhile back, when the prototype images first surfaced, did indicate that they’d be there. It’s not really a detail that I’ve been too concerned about, honestly. Besides, by the looks of things his “helmet” does appear to also fold and move with his transformation along various points. Chances are, his head shape is somewhat adjustable, especially the sections along the side of his helmet.
Purely conjecture, of course

The face in those sketches looks a whole lot better, but I'm not quite sure it's the helmet. Looking back and forth between it and the photos, I think it's the nose. The nose on the final product is too long and throws the whole face out of whack.

Now we're discussing possible plastic surgery?

That face reminds me of a face hugger from alien, a whole face-full of alien wing wong (VG cats). i didnt care for the tongue hanging out version, made him seem rather stupid than terrifying. Watch out girls in tokyo, he's coming for you!

Meg just rulez. It is fair enough for everyone to complain about stuff that are not great on him (there are some minor unimportant details). However considering the fact that we are talking about a gun that turns into robot you can not have great freedom in making the legs bigger etc (no arguments about face etc). They could alter the transformation to achieve this. Then again people would be complaining about these changes and blah blah blah. I think they did their best and. This toy kix some serious buts and we should start saving money...

Yes - mongoosehuman thinks it needs a nose job...and a sex change (not really). Which is pretty darn impressive, considering that it's a toy.
