He got MTV to Pimp his Body each time.

Here's a question, does the beast changer or Noble/Savage mold count as a Megs?

I wouldn't know about that... almost every sound-chipped fig that came supplied with batteries had 'em removed five minutes after opening them. Those that didn't supply them never got 'em. :twisted:


Why?s that Ramrider? I like it when they come with sound effects cards and always get the batteries for them.

Mega-whatsit? Galva-bot? Yeah, I like the good old days, when a bot/con got an upgrade, it was a UPGRADE, and not a new paint scheme hAssbro has really dropped the ball on TF as of late. Poor Megatron doesn't get extras or new goodies like prime does, it's not really fair to the character, ok yes, he did go Super Sayain in Cybertron, but thats not good enough, he supposed to be the ephifany of evil here. If he's upgraded in a new series, he should have some major changes besides a paint job.

To be honest, I'm rarely that impressed with the sound effects anyway, but the main problem is that they're often too easy to access; when simply pushing the fig forwards or turning a gun turret starts it blaring out noises, it just gets on my nerves too quickly...

He should've been upgraded with blonde hair and a monkey tail!

Don't jump the gun on critisizing the paint only upgrades. Cybertron has hotshot, redalert and scattershot who got much better whole new forms. I do hate the megatron repaints entirely. The second form is always better and I can't afford it. Look at cybertron meagatrons multi colour first itteration - yuck. The Galvatron silver ig beautiful but at $100Aud a peice I just can't afford another unit of the same mold.

the cy def team is a whole new mold for those characters as opposed to "i am megatron...whoops new paint job...I AM GALVATRON..YESSS"

As calculated by XE.com, it's about $75 US, or 40 quids English.
Looks like the Aussies are paying Brit prices...

I will not lie, the repaints are a bit much, i mean i can't quite handle the "i'm a bad ass, now i got a new paint job, i'm a BIGGER bad ass!" and there is truth in the fact that armada megs shoulda made the jump to energonm galvatron, the comic tried to do that as opposed to the cartoon. and as far as sound effects cards goes, i actually liked armada over load, for the simple fact that he was the first transformer to make the transformation sound, i mean, yeah after there was all the energon characters but hey overload, and roll out are the first rookies to have it, they take major kudos from me.
First Prime, then Ultra Magnus, and now, you! It's a pitty you Autobots die so easily or I might have a sense of satisfaction, now! -Galvatron, Transformers, The Movie-

:shock:

*GIVES DF HIS MORE ALREADY, DAMMNIT!!!!* @.@;


In all actuality, imo, the Beast Changer does count as a Megatron. Just only half way... I mean... They did make him into his own character... Kind of. He was more like the Maximal's pet dog in the end. :\ Kinda get that "Old Yeller" feel between him and Nightscream...

Other than that, though, he is yet another Megs.
