That mold needs a lot more than a good paint job to look good.

I don't own this mold, and I LOVE this new color scheme. I'm a sucker for the black-purple-silver combination. I hope this gets a domestic release (which I doubt), but I'll import if the price isn't prohibitive.

I'm really liking this paint scheme! If it ever comes domestic I may bite, but I doubt that'll happen.

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!

Love the colors, hate the mold! Would love to seen the colors on a update leader class version of Megatron, but not this. Oh well, money goes to something else.

I wouldn't mind seeing it on the voyager mold.

Goofy crab claw aside, that was a decent rendition of the character.

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)

Despite a hard to make mold, Takara made this paint job the greatest!

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.
