you know, i really wouldn't mind having an off-scale gun mode as long as the robot mode is good looking. Even though the transformation design and the color scheme are both exceptionally well done for the Masterpiece Megatron, I just can't get over the skeleton-look of it.

some of the retailers that are importing megatron are adding either permanent orange caps, or orange painted tips. thats no rumor, as of now bigbadtoystor and HLJ have both stated they are doing so, that is old news.

and as of yet, seibertronian new hasnt led me astray, the news crew here do one damned good job. thats why i post here.

Megatron looks really misproportioned, skinny legs, large torso, large canon, and his head looks a little long in those pics.

The BW figs are all a big pass for me, I own all the molds I like already so maybe that is why I'm so uninterested.

Wow! That is great. Megs looks spectacular. BW repaints look nice. The OPs and Megs are kinda crappy, why did they use RM? Would a been cooler if they went with some sweet transmetalage. Cheetor looks amazing. I love the paint apps. I thought my 10th anniversary Cheetor looked good, but that is the definition of how a great transformer should look. Dinobot looks really good too. I love the new head. Howlinger looks nice. I don't know why he's red, but it works for me. Rhinox looks more accurate, and don't get me started on how great Blackarachnia looks. The rest are alright. But seriously, WOW!

Megatron's chest looks flat, but otherwise, they did a real good job, I guess they took notes after Starscream.

The Beast Wars, well outside of Blackarachnia and Cheetor, I already have them, so my personal intrest is gone.

Actualy, I have several Cheetors, but that cat face looks to goofy to pass up.

My Blackarachnia has seen better days, so maybe it's time to trade up on her.

Otherwise, they are reissuing some great figures and I can't say enough, if you don't have them, you should look into getting them.

I have never until now been tempted to import repaints. These things are very well done.

Megatron looks really cool... if only they could do something to make his legs look a little stronger/thicker.

The beast wars repaints are in most cases better than I would expect. I don't know if I'll get them or not (as I have most of the figures), but there's a higher chance now that I've seen these pics...

In that picture it looks as if Waspinator actually has a new head as opposed to the original w/mutant head painted like we got with the 10th Anniversary figures. I still don't understand why they don't just remove the mutant heads on Rhinox and Dinobot though.

Yours AK

I think its less an eye for detail and more a willingness to push the price up if they feel more paint apps are needed. Hasbro starts with the price point and everything choice from then on is effected by it. They will not push to a higher price point, thus sometimes a figure suffers. Takara has no problem pushing up the price if they think it gets a better product that collectors are more likely to buy.

Are these the first pictures we've seen of them? I can't remember.

But as for the figures, I love them! If I had the kind of money, I'd buy them all at once!

These pictures provide some good details regarding MP Megatron. IMO the legs look better in these shots.

I am starting to get a sinking feeling that he will not contain that much die-cast. It looks like his feet are die-cast, along with his groin, and possibly thighs. The black handle, chest, arms, and other parts look more like plastic. I hope I am wrong.

His groin appears to have a series of folded hinges. I hope they stay together well.

Those BW repaints look incredible. The new paint apps really improve the look of the figures. Mp Megs looks great as well, but I found some other pics I haven't seen yet.
These are from Twin Moons anime. Note their release date and the info about the mod. ... ts_id=1864

On the bw repaints, i love the resculps and the fact that the paint jobs on the outsides are darker, and when you open them up to the inside, they are metallic and shinny!! Its almost as if they corrected and refined the actual toys and released some sweet versions of them. I love em!! these look as if they stepped right out of the cartoon and into toy form, a definate must buy, for any Beast Wars fan!
