Thanks for the comparison shots. With the color and paint apps, it does help it look less like a straight Bludgeon repaint... or even too Samurai. Really does come across reminiscent of the G2 tank, but nicely in scale.

Now, what will I do with him? Oh yeah! He can loiter over here with the G2 Botcon set and the new G2 Jazz. :-?


OH! Here's his new bio below. Enjoy!


Trading in his Fusion cannon for an equally destructive and shock-inducing neon dayglo color scheme, G2 Tank Megatron's overt brashness is second only to his nuclear paint scheme. Can link up inter-dimensionally to a green highlighter marker hidden in a sub-space pocket to draw power.

lol, nice Bio. :lol:

Yeah, he really needs an arm cannon, and some general remolding on the body. Still a pretty decent figure though.

well, that was an admirable attempt to positively review a terrible figure which should have never been allowed to exist.

Eh. While they're hit and miss, I was glad to see SOMEONE throw us G1ers a bone. Outside of the Masterpiece line, seems like Hasbro and Takara have other projects in the works. And though they haven't been perfect matches with the body, the head sculpts and accessories have been spot on perfect across the board, which is odd. Seems like there is always a couple of misses, like Kup.

As is, Hot Spot, Wheelie, Springer stick out as the best of the lot. Cliffjumper surprised me as being pretty nice, too. Megatron isn't at the top, but still is eeking his way into the middle somewhere for me.

At least these Asia exclusives are still from the last round of full-sized, full-quality, fully-articulated molds. While the FOC molds have been interesting, and I love the game, the FOC line has indeed made me sad at the drop in size and quality... and simultaneous rise in price.
