i disagree, timshinn has done some nice work, but this megatron , for me at least anyway, pisses all over all previous megatrons, including g1, from a great height, and for all the non-g1-haters out there, i think its pretty conclusive that this is the most g1-like megatron there has been since g1.
this image might help... i mean come on, just look at skorponok-wannabe on the right, or bat-ears at the top-right, or even worse -transforms-into-a-giant-head at the top-middle
uhm... you're only pointing out the **** megatrons we've had since g1, armada sucked, rid for a large portion sucked (with the exception of scourge, and maybe ultra magnus) and don't even get me started on the rediculousness of beast machines. And before you bash me for being a g1 purist, I'll tell you right here I'm not. Beast wars was my favorite show, followed by the originals, and then I really couldn't care less after that (beast machines could have been so much better, but they made stuff way too weird and absolutely rediculous).
And plus you're wrong about movie megs being the closest to g1 since g1. Classics megatron anyone? even g2 megs is closer to g1 megs than movie megs. (Not that you opinions aren't valid, I just don't share the same opinion. However, neither of us are right or wrong. So its all good
Okay back to the topic at hand.
This is definetly an improvement to the design, and getting to the point where I can live with this crazy design. Only a few touchups and modifications and I'll have no problems with it.
He still is pretty ugly though... but he's starting to be better than starscream (god i wish they'd use a different mold for starscream, because his current mold absolutely screams a vehicular update for waspinator).
*EDITED* (Thanks kjeevah for correcting my mistake.
God do I hate doing stupid grammar things like that
