Great repaint,Much more menacing. But still not a fan of this mold with its wimpy left arm, Even if it is giving the finger.I keep mine in Tank mode because my version is possessed. It randomly glows and makes transformation noises in robot mode. Its sometime caused by suttle vibrations by simply walking near it.Wonder if we may still get a Leader DOTM Megatron based on the Mach truck mode. The Voyager was great But no real menacing next to Leader Optimus or Sentinel.

He doesn't have a wire in the arm, all the electronics are in the torso. He doesn't have an elbow because of the missile.

I think he does have a wire in his arm, to activate the blasting sound every time the missile fires.

It can't be just the missile, as the mechanism would take no more space than the forearm to work. LC Starscream's missile pod took even less space.

In robot mode there's a tiny button in the torso that the shoulder joint presses when you move the arm. In vehicle mode the button on the cannon also presses a button on the torso. The firing mechanism is pretty far back because the missile fits inside the arm instead of sticking out like it does on Starscream. Plus the arms comes off really easily and there's no wire to be found there.

Thanks for the explanation, Nub. I did not know that.

Great color scheme.Not a big fan of the puny left arm or non articulated right arm. Would have liked a new leader class version of DOTM Mack Truck Megatron.

I believe the "lipstick on a pig" expression applies here.

Too bad that we got several good Prime molds but Has/Tak could never get movie Megatron right.

It's in DOTM packaging, not TF4 packaging.

And being sold as an Asia market exclusive would be a really BAD way of promoting TF4 to American (and, for that matter, Japanese) consumers.

I think he means he wants this to be Megatrons new color scheme in TF4. Like...he's revived by Dark Energon.


Or Galvy.
