Even though the dark energon makes no sense (movie wise), I gotta say... This is the superior color scheme of all the RotF Leader Megatrons, he look's awesome!

So the packaging is a hybrid between the DOTM design (background, logo, color scheme, aesthetics) and ROTF (text details, information, gimmick promotion). Neat. That makes his a unique, custom packaging. 8)

Why doesn't some third party company make a set of arms for this mold. I bet it would sell like hot cakes. You can mark me down for 3.

I already have the Shadow Command version of this mold so I doubt I'll be getting this one, but it does look spiffy.

Pretty much stating the obvious, but it's the arms that ruin the ROTF LC Megatron toy; and that's not something a bit of silver and purple paint can fix.

That looks great! Even next to ROTF Megatron which had a good color set, I have the Takara one but there is hardly a difference between that one and the Hasbro one.

Very tempted to get one, with the G1 Leader Ironhide (mediocre mold but the paint makes it good enough).

I wish Voyager Shockwave's head was a bit bigger, but I'll slap it on that Megatron anyway. He soooo looks like Shockwave.

Why didn't Takara just upscale the hell out of DOTM Voyager Megatron? I mean, they did it with deluxe WFC Soundwave, and I really like Voyager DOTM Megz.

I was wondering the same thing. Maybe someone at Hasbro thinks villains don't sell so well, however true or false that may be.

I'd be almost as happy if they'd release a DMK DOTM Megs. A non-transforming figure would be able to capture all of his CG render's rusty, rugged detail. I know many don't like the irony of non-transforming TF figures, but in the case of Bayverse designs, it's excusable due to all the details and added accuracy you get from it.

Shockwave would make the perfect DMK, though, since he doesn't even transform in DOTM.

Even know he looks nice in these colors this is total bullshit. This isn't what he looked like in dotm why can we get a leaderclass of what he looked like in DOTM instead of repaints of ROTF figures.

ha! if someone at Hasbro thinks villains don't sell well, they should have a word with the guys in the GI Joe and Star Wars departments, and ask for numbers on Vipers and Storm Troopers.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.

It's an absolute mystery to me why Hasbro thinks like that.

It's not even "traditional" marketing, because villains have always been cooler than the good guys. I'll bet dollars to doughnut holes that Vader gets at least twice the amount of figures and merchandise made compared to Luke Skywalker. Even as a kid, I've always favored the G1 Decepticons like Megatron, Soundwave and Starscream over the Autobots.

I'm not saying kids will choose Megatron over Optimus, but villains (the cool ones, at least) can and do sometimes outsell the good guys as toys.

And someone please knock Bumblebee off of Leader Class and give it back to Megatron!

I don't know why Hasbro doesn't understand that. They're called action figures for a reason. The good guy needs a bad guy to fight. When I was a kid I always wanted the lead good guy and the lead bad guy. Not the lead good guy and his sidekick.

Of course, I always wanted a team, but if they'd stop short-packing the 'cons, maybe they'd get more money from kids and adults alike.

That's why I'm glad Wave 3, 4 & 5 of Prime and Wave 2 of FoC Generations are mostly (or entirely, in FoC W2's case) Decepticons. But of course, they have to be sheepish in distributing those waves.

My thoughts exactly.

You can't play-fight with your figs if there's no enemy. What's the kid gonna do, sit OP and Bee down on a table and have tea?

And let's not forget that Bee's way out of scale as a leader class toy. I know scale is almost an afterthought as far as TF's are concerned, but at least keep him in relative scale, for Pete's sake.
