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:

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.

It is only a matter of time before advertisements for the upcoming Transformers Movie start to play on television. According to Imaginary Number One of the official Transformers Movie forums, the ads will begin this weekend on CBS. Imaginary Number One has a sister who works for a promotions company and received a copy of an e-mail from Paramount announcing the ads would start to air. Here is a copy of the email Imaginary Number One posted:


"Subject: TRANSFORMERS - TELEVISION SPOT - FIRST LOOK

We are creating a PHASE ONE MEDIA campaign for TRANSFORMERS. The first television spot will air this coming Saturday during some sports programming and will continue on throughout televised media events throughout the month of April.

National publicity is trying for a first look on ET for this Friday. Would love to be able to offer your CBS affiliate a "first look" at the spot as well should they have interest as well.

Please pitch you local CBS stations and let me know ASAP so I can be sure to ship the spot to them in order for it to coincide with ET's FIRST LOOK.

A list of outlets and contact info would be greatly appreciated."

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.

    USA Today ran an article today about the upcoming Transformers Movie. The article hints at an Earth-mode for Megatron but this could just be me holding onto hope that he becomes something other than his Cybertronian jet mode. You can read the full article in today's USA Today newspaper or you can read it online here.
