I realize that i don't speak for everyone, but i think most people would like a much better looking Megatron than that. Like i said before, that toy really looks not much better to me than the original. Screw the handle looking too big or the scope being too small, it would improve whats more important to most transfans. I doubt many people are going to be like "damn, what a convincing walther p-38 that toy is, i think i'll drop $100 on it". i think where we really differ is that paying that much for a "decent" robot isn't my idea of money well spent. I will, however, pay that much for the what the "Masterpiece" title would imply is the definitive version of a character i grew up with. That prototype isn't it.
I disagree 100%. That is perhaps one of the best Megatron models, in robot mode, I have seen to date. The very fact that they were able to make a very accurate looking, though scaled up, Walther P-38, and create a robot mode that close to the cartoon character, along with making it fully articulated is laudable. I find absolutely no fault in that model what so ever. You are not going to get a 100% cartoon accurate robot mode, and still have it transform, without the alt mode looking totally ridiculous, and that wouldn’t be an improvement. This is
the difinitive G1 Megatron.
