Failing pound, failing pound.
It's down to 109.99 at Kapow right now. TFS-Express have got an additional fiver off that.

Really rather cool. I don't want it, but inventive.

AE have pre-orders up for TR Ginrai/PMOP so I'm taking a punt -- http://www.anime-export.com/ -- and it in no way is going to replace the original, but figure it'll go nicely with the Autobot TR lineup of characters like Brainstorm and Hardhead. Really liking TR in general so far.

MP34 Cheetor up for PO at various retailers.

55 pounds plus shipping at Kapow

38 odd quid at AE before shipping

January release, which makes it look like Inferno is going to be the last MP release this year [potential release date for Dirge excluded].

Takara's version of Victorion is, er... somewhat different to Hasbro's...

That's unexpected, and yet... not unexpected at the same time.

Where have I heard of Mega Empress before? I'm sure it was something from Takara, but I can't recall precisely.

Ooh, that seems to nail the animation model for robot mode a lot better than the other attempts I've seen. Hope this turns out to be serious

That Megatron looks ace. Would be great if it is official, but even if it's another 3P one, it looks hands down the best attempt so far!

So Arturo Milomir, who according to some Google Fu does magazine scans for Tformers just changed his profile picture to the attached...

Take that for what it's worth.

What happened to Knightdramon? Did he fall down a hole? I have to report this stuff myself now. Not cool.

ANYWAY shall we have a look at the now-official MP Megatron redux?

http://news.tfw2005.com/2016/10/21/m...-images-326633

Back looks a bit of a mess. Seems a bit long in the legs proportionately. Face looks excellent. Alternate battle damage chest/head and pre-reformatting head look great.

MP Megatron V2 does look quite impressive. The torso looks better proportioned than any of the 3P offerings. However, on closer inspection he does look very complicated and has a lot of kibble hanging around... I'm erring towards him as my MP-10 scaled Megatron solution, but will need to see more before I can decide.

Torso looks compressed, personally. Like Shockers the legs remind me of an Actionmaster -- not a bad aesthetic if you like that sort of thing and light years ahead of the original unless you really liked the toy-inspired design of that, but... the main beneficiaries of this will be people who like the 3P ones that end up moved on by particularly fanatical MP collecting existing owners and retailers stuck with overstocks.

The earlier dark grey proto leaked image looked better TBH.

edit:

If the Boldforms one still gets made and isn't too inflated price-wise, I may have a punt on that one. But honestly Hegemon and Apollyon fill two different scale gaps perfectly fine AFAIC.

That's a very good Megatron, barring the messy back that Brend already noted. Can't say I'm super-interested in it myself, since I'm not a huge Megatron fan and don't have an MP Optimus for him to face off against. But it's definitely the nicest attempt (official or not) at the character so far, but by a wide margin.

I'm most impressed by the gun mode, actually. It's reasonably accurate (though maybe a hair too wide) and reasonably close to being 1:1 scale too, as far as I can tell from the pics.

Personally I'm waiting for a good MP Galvatron. Until then my Decepticons are just going to have to deal with taking orders from Ratbat.
