Not enough "ahhhh"'to render 200 bucks for it. Laser dam is nice. But looking at te pictures, the original tapes look awesome. New masterpiece tapes too expensive to replace old ones. Ill keep my old ones. Ill wait for Hasbro's on all these masterpieces
Not sure what else you would expect from this toy. Of course it's a larger version of the original, that's what all the other MP's have been before him. The transformation is slightly more involved but not too complicated that you risk breaking parts off.
I think the combination of having him store 3 cassettes, weapon storage, generous articulation, Megatron's alt-mode and a clip-on weapon, an energon cube AND Laserbeak is more than enough "Ahhh" to make me more than happy.
I think you're expectations are too high, just like the price tag. And speaking of, what price is this figure going for in Japan? Probably the same as the otherMP releases - around $100-$130.00. The $200.00 price tag everyone is complaining about is part import price and part retailer mark-up. Anytime you import an item from overseas you're going to pay higher prices. They charge that kind of price because fanatical collectors will pay it.
