from some photos he looks a tad wide as well but could just be the photo.

i don't have PRIME prime but megatron is pretty damn big compared in this photo.


Classics voyager Prime is shorter than TFP FE Prime so Hegemon is about a head taller than Classics OP.

With gun laws I think it unlikely that Hasbro with top this so I may have to bite. I'll wait for reviews though.

Yeah i don't see hasbro doing this.

i thought he would have been a bit more than a head taller but As long as he's taller than classics OP, he certainly looks like a bigger portioned figure but again could be the photos

i don't own classics OP in fact now i think of it my classics factions are leaderless :-( if hegemon turns out to be quality it could be the first time i might want to see another OP in the making , i have classics UM and hes what a tad bigger or the size of a tall deluxe? it would be nice to have a OP & Megs who stand above there groups.

I am hoping that pp-01 Faith Leader is the same height as Hegemon. I just picked one up and it is really nice and I paid on $48 for it. I purchased it hoping that it would work with Hegemon.

I'm cool with it being taller than Classics OP. The main villain should be more imposing than the main hero. I always hated that, in the Unicron trilogy, OP outgunned Megatron. The only downside is that he's now far taller than Classics Galvy. Well ... I still have Superlink Gavy if I wanted to go that way.

Sounds like Faith KO is about a head taller than Pokeheger.

I am very interested in seeing reviews for this. If it's the bomb, I'll probably look to get it as a Father's Day gift. So people need to hurry up and get them in hand so I can find out whether to order!

FINALLY! A good pic comparing Hegy to Classics Megs. I'm glad to finally see a good scale and now I'm much happier to see 2 things:

1) his height is good for Classics
2) The red plastic doesn't seem to actually be the leg joints. I'm hoping for a similar case with his arms.

Sweet, no gun packaging!

Leaning more towards this, the only decent 3rd party release within the past few months.

I'd love to get this, but unless an online shop that doesn't require a frickin' blood sample decides to carry it, I'm out.

All the shops that have him want way too much PII (Personally Identifiable Information), and after the TFCC incident, I'm wary of using anything besides PayPal unless I'm dealing with someone far more reputable like BBTS or Amazon.com.

Which is funny because Paypal is the only way I pay for things on BBTS and their not carrying Hegemon! So frustrating!

It doesn't matter, it should come right out. US safety laws require it to be orange. It's not like it's an official accessory. No one considers a MP Megatron incomplete because when they get one without a plug in the box.

I paid for my Hegemon at Robot Kingdom with Paypal.

I just did that myself (begrudgingly). I can't understand why they need to 'confirm' my PayPal account info (contact phone # etc.) and I think they're full of crap and just want more info for 'marketing'.

If it wasn't my PayPal account and I'm using the PayPal address on file with PayPal (which I am), then it would be stupid if it were a stolen account, as that would mean I'm simply buying things and having them shipped to the PayPal account owner's address.

The shipping was rape. Over $20 to the US :(.
