It would be great if their will be come a new MP Megatron mold, because the MP Megatron which exist at the moment suck hard, not just because the rust but also the arms and legs aren't that good, and it will be great if a new MP Megatron looks a little bit like the Toyworld Hegemon, because this one looks really great even it's just a third party product. :-?

By someone having access to the prototype/design plans...either a Takara employee, former employee, or has a connection to either one of those. I'm not saying that's actually the case, I don't know, but that's how it would be done. If I recall, that's kinda where the thread was going, but you know how the internet works. An 'insider' says one thing, and of course that info has a certain degree of vagueness to it, then the crazy internet 'facts' begin to take shape.

But the only worthwhile thing I take away from that is the new MP Megs supposedly looks to have some similarities in design to Hegemon...that it's more similar to that than it is MP-05. But I bolded the key word above...this is all 'he tell me' info after all.

As long as he turned out looking something like this:

I think most collectors could live with that.


This is exactly what I was thinking. They could turn Megatron's alt mode into a cannon. It would still be really cool, and it wouldn't compromise his robot mode. Plus if he isn't a gun there wouldn't be any need for an orange cap.

I just want a Megatron that looks like he can pose a threat to Optimus Prime. MP-05's narrow arms a stick legs made him look frail when standing beside MP-01. And with all the other recent releases trying to focus on cartoon accuracy, I really hope Megatron follows suit.

I display all my MP's in robot mode, so personally, I wouldn't mind some sacrifice to the gun mode to make sure the robot mode is as good as possible.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

One thing Has/Tak could do for extra gimmick is to make his helmet removable and include a black comic accurate helmet for fans of the comic.

Just a thought.

Edit* And fix the bal joints on his hips and shoulders. I can touch the figure without them popping off. I always end up taking them off when I transform it and reattach them when I'm done.



Agreed. Don't get me wrong though- I love the figure. He looks awesome in alt mode, as well. I think,like a previous post made, they should concentrate on the bot mode more on the next one, granted they do one. I got this one for my gun mode to display......make an awesome bot mode to stand next to it......please, of course..... :grin:
