Seibertron.com is proud to present it's 12th Transformers Movie gallery. The latest figure to get our special photogallery treatment is none other than the maniacal Megatron ... evil leader of the Decepticons! View over 130 pictures by clicking here.

And to add even more here is a review from our very own megatroptimus who was also able to grab one early.

Quick notes :

-Ice is not removeable
-Missile launches by retracting the silver piece on the gun
-There's a lever at the back of the jet... you pull and the wings move forward...
-Feet are spring-loaded : if you lift Megatron off the ground, they fold automatically
-Claws are poseable and retract for jet mode
-Some automorphing : as you unfold the feet for robot mode, the ice patches move up on the lower legs
-As you rotate the chest into position for robot mode, the torso ice patch moves down and reveals the head
-The jet rolls on 3 little wheels (2 on the feet and on the lower part of the chest (hidden by the ice patch in bot mode)
-Plenty poseable : head (ball joint), shoulders (click joints, bicep swivel, lower arm moves up/down, poseable claws, waist rotates, hips (click joints in both directions : front/rear, side to side), knees (swivels + front/rear click joints), feet (ball joints).
-Shoulders pads are spring-loaded (not sure why yet)
-The clear wing tip is made of soft plastic and the clear middle part of the wing is of harder plastic (still slightly flexible)


To transform from robot mode to jet mode...

-straighten the legs and rotate them 180 degrees
-rotate the waist 180 degrees
-lift the wings/backback until it's parallel to the ground
-move the waist/legs unit to the back (the torso's ice patch will move up to cover the head)
-peg the legs to the jet's tail
-retract the claws
-rotate the gun so it's now between both arm
-bring the arm closer to the middle so you can peg the gun to the torso
-peg the right arm's gun clip to the gun
-straitghten the arms so they point forward
-position the wings (not sure how they should be)

Pretty easy, but fun. The shoulders move down at an angle as you move the waist/legs unit.

MP Megatron has now been released in Japan. He is packaged in his robot mode.





Brief description:
He does not contain as much die-cast as MP Convoy, however his plastic is very sturdy with strong ratcheted joints. Despite his appearance, he is very durable and has no problem standing on his own. His transformation is more complex than MP Starscream.

I have included a couple pictures to show his scale:

(In the first photo a quarter is used as scale reference below Megatron)



New Photos of Transformers Movie Deluxe Bumblebee

Our own megatroptimus has been very busy today. He has already shared mini reviews and new images of Transformers Movie deluxe Barricade and Brawl, and new images of Voyager Megatron. Now megatroptimus has posted a mini review of Transformers Movie deluxe Bumblebee. The review contains some new images of the figure. Here is what megatroptimus posted:


"CAR MODE

It's the old '74 Camaro. Painted windows, some dirt effects, black stripes, silver rims, silver headlights, silver trim on the front bumper, painted brake lights. It's like an unkidified version of Energon Hot Shot or Armada Hot Shot. Had to fix the hood on mine as it didn't want to stay in place (locking tabs were too thin). A few drops of superglue and it was ready to go.

TRANSFORMATION

Some interesting stuff going on here as Bumblebee has both flipchanging and automorph gimmicks. You start by detaching the guns from the undercarriage. Then, under the car, you flip up the little panel with the Autobot insignia to unlock the front portion of the vehicle. Then you push the button on the hood and the chest with flip down and automorph at the same time (headlights move forward and to the center over the front grill). Turn the head around. Move the arms up laterally until the wheels lock on the shoulders. Fold down and pose the arms. Open the doors and lift the whole windshield/doors piece to form the "wings" behind Bumblebee. To form the legs, split the rear of the car in two. Rotate the bumper completely under the car and slide it to the rear by holding it parallel to the car. This will activate the automorph feature and move the rear window down and the knee guard up. Once you're done, fold down the feet and repeat for the other leg. Then you can attach the guns to the shoulders or the fists. Missiles are spring-loaded. The transformation is very fun and very smooth.

ROBOT MODE

Very good poseability. Head is on a ball joint and can rotate on 360 degrees and tilt up and down. Ball joints for the shoulders and elbows. Fists can rotate on 360 degrees. Ball joints for the hips. Joints for the knees (forward-backward) and the feet (up/down). Robot mode brings some more black and blue detailing. I for one love the headsculpt. There's a number on the waist area that says "4NZZ454". Dunno what it refers to.

Overall, a very nice figure. I wish Barricade had that kind of poseability. I prefer Barricade's look, but for playability, Bumblebee takes the win.

Our own megatroptimus has received the Transformers Movie Deluxe Brawl figure. Megatroptimus has been kind enought to share some new images of the figure along with a small review. Here is megatroptimus' mini review with new images:

"TANK MODE

Looks good although the plastic feels so-so. Turrets turn but main cannon cannot move up or down. Secondary cannons can't either, only the third set can move in all directions. Tank rolls on 4 little wheels.

TRANSFORMATION

The most spectacular I've seen for a tank (too long to explain)... until it's time to attach the shoulders to the torso, which proved impossible. Had to put superglue in the hole to make them smaller. Very frustrating process, I can already see kids being disapointed. Once the fix is done, everything is fine. The automorph feature on it is that when you fold down the torso, the tank threads move upand the head folds up. Pretty cool and not obstrusive.

ROBOT MODE

Great little robot with blades/claws on the left arm and the tank's main cannon on the right one. Brawl is super poseable. Joints for : head, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, feet. Headsculpt is pretty cool too, the closest to anything G1 in that line so far. Actually, it looks more like something from Beast Machines. I love it.

Our own megatroptimus has received the Transformers Movie Deluxe Barricade figure. Megatroptimus has been kind enought to share some new images of the figure along with a small review. Here is megatroptimus' mini review with new images:

"CAR MODE

Best deluxe car ever, the detailing on this Saleen is fantastic.

TRANSFORMATION

Nothing too unusual, fairly easy. Swing out sides of the car to form the arms, Split the rear end and connect the waist under the car, fold down down, split the hood in half, flip up the head, eject Frenzy from the chest (no spring action here) if you wish and unfold it and you're done.

ROBOT MODE

Looks very nice, the arms are spectacular (especially the hands - 3 fingers and one moveable thumb), gimmick is okay (left arm extends when you push a button), but the main thing is, Barricade is a pain in the ass to pose. It's top heavy and the legs cannot be straight, ankle joints are a bit loose. Head doesn't turn either. A bit of a let down in robot mode, but I've seen worse.
