Seeing TLK Leader Megs so small beside the two older ones is a bid sad. Also, no lights and sounds. However, this is still the better toy overall.
Made a nice small display on top of my fridge.

Willy J, I think you just sold me on the TLK deluxe. I liked it when I saw it, but passed on it in favor of the leader.

Speaking of which, I forgot to mention 1 more problem I have with it: there's no red streak on his face, like he had in the movie. I figured the leader was big enough to have that detail.

And I would like to see a comparison shot of the 2007 movie Megatron and TLK Megatron in jet mode. Doesn't matter if leader or voyager, but prefer leader.

Ugh... Do I have to?
It's been AGES since I transformed my '07 leader Megs.
Well, guess I'm on it. Hold on for an hour or two.

Finally picked up Voyager OP to go with Megs. Good old Walmart. Only had to drive 1.5 hours to NJ to find it (as part of a day trip, I'm not that crazy lol).

The truck mode is kinda cool. Not a huge fan of the transformation and even less so of the bot mode. It really makes me appreciate Megatron more. But alas, I think I'm just in for deluxe hot rod and that's probably it for me and movie figures.

Just for you, Rodimus Prime.
That '07 Megs is a nightmare to figure out because the vehicle mode is just so... random. How the hell can we know by instinct what go where? Anyway, first and foremost...

Image
Getting REALLY tired of your ****, Hasbro. Notice that one small tailfin is just not there. One more QC issue, one more toy to return. Jesus F Christ. #-o

Anyway, Comparisons. Although TLK jet take more surface area, '07 is MUCH more heavy and massive looking. It's also a very alien design that is not aerodynamic at all. '07 Megs also don't give a crap, covering his face with just a tiny panel. Bet the Prime design was base on that one. TLK is MUCH more streamlined and logical as a flying vehicle.

Enjoy these shots:

I improvised a flight stand for '07 Megs. Because he's NOT returning into robot mode for a while.

And now, to put back TLK Megs into bot mode, put him back into the box, and exchanging him at TrU tomorrow.

Well, after transforming TLK Megs a few times back and forth, I can officially say that I HATE him. :BOOM:

The plastic feel SO cheap, like some bad KO. Also, kibble and bits that fly off everywhere when transforming that constantly need to be put back in. The arm canon gimmick is a minor annoyance too.

But the overall quality is so horrible, I just can't forgive that toy. ESPECIALLY FOR THAT PRICE.

So I'm not exchanging him for another one at TrU. I'll be asking for a FULL REFUND and with the money, I'll just buy TR Leader Overlord at Walmart.

I'll give that leader another chance only if I find him at 20$ at Winners.
Screw you, cheapo TLK Leader Megs. :michaelbay:

Aww man, I love my Leader Megs. The instructions were kind of garbage. I missed a bunch of places he pegs together for jet mode, so huuuuuuge thanks to Optibotimus for having such excellent videos! His transformation makes more sense, so I'll be doing it different.

I don't feel much love for Leader Optimus, though... man, he looks horrible with the truckpack kibble. I haven't liked him since AoE, so.... I'm getting this guy instead!

Image

Wasn't going to get the Western Star pattern at all, but this guy just looks incredible, and I love big sheilds and axes and stuff, and I had to get SOMEONE to go against Leader Megs. Probably my last movie line figure, too, unless they do something reallllly spectacular for the next one.

Figures I want to get: Barricade, Hound, Crosshairs, Drift, Hot Rod, Cogman, new mold Bee, Scorn, Voyager Megatron, and Nitro Zeus.

Figures I'd like but would live without: Dinobot repaints, Squeeks (getting Tiny Turbo Changer), Steelbane & Skullitron (QC issues), all the leaders, and Infernocus (waiting for KO or discount prices).

Problem is that with college approaching, I'm probably going to have to miss out on most of them. It also hurts when the Walmart closest to me sucks with its stock; like I said, all Grimlocks and Slashes, barely anything else from Wave 1, and no sign of Voyager Prime for fans who want him. Then there's other things I want to get (old TFs on eBay, Justice League 6" figures, Marvel Legends MCU Spidey) that could stop me from getting what I want. Hopefully, I can get some assistance from friends and relatives, and what I'd add with my optimism on obtaining what I want is a bit of Energon and a lot of luck.

Thank you -Kanrabat-, that is going above and beyond the call. ;)^ Those shots are making me regret selling my'07 leader Megatron. But I think I can pick one up for cheap, he wasn't that popular.

I bought TLK voyager Prime to go with AoE voyager Galvatron, since AoE had only Evasion Mode Prime in voyager class and no leader Galvatron, which I would have loved, and it would have been so easy. All they had to do was enlarge the voyager mold. It might have been cheap, but at least we would have had a figure. Now I have to put AoE leader Prime with TLK leader Megatron.

Sorry if this is the wrong place but I was at tru earlier and saw the voyager optimus with the clear red shield. I've seen it somewhere on here before but I can't remember if its part of tlk or tribute line or what.

Anyways, he looks pretty cool and I thought about getting him.but with this lines (and pretty much all recent Hasbro transformers) qc issues and the fact I still need a voyager megatron I wanted to look into it more first. Does anyone know where I can find info or reviews?

That Voyager Prime is actually a redeco of the DotM Voyager:

Transformers Dark of the Moon Optimus Prime Gallery

He's part of the Reveal the Shield subline, with a gimmick similar to the Tech Spec decoders of G1. If the clear red weapon is held over the dot pattern of the toy, you can see the hidden image.
The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

- Jelze Bunnycat =:3

Looking for:
- TR Furos (Hardhead's head) and Crashbash (lost him :()
- PotP Punch head
- TR Galvatron right arm (the gun one)
- CW Stunticon limbs (Drag Strip, Dead End, Breakdown, Brake-Neck, Offroad or TFCC Grabuge) + Blackjack
- TR Twinferno & Grotusque
- Greenlight, Lancer and PotP Elita-1 (plus repro Victorion hands and feet?)

Ask and you shall receive.



It's an exclusive in limited TrU stores. So you should get him but only if you really want him. It's not the best voyager Optimus mold. And unless you are tight on money, get the regular TLK voyager Optimus Prime or even the SDCC version at Hasbro Toy shop (if you live in the USA). The new TLK voyager Optimus is a fantastic mold.

Thanks for the info, I thought he looked familiar. I actually like that mold and I already have tlk voyager prime (who is awesome) but after seeing that review I am going to pass on him. Too much of the transparent red plastic (seriously they had to use that for the wheels?) and that gimmick is just bad.

Weapon: Armor Axe
So I got Nitro Zeus and Scorn this weekend and dang, they are good.

We will start off with this: all 4 of the TLK voyagers post wave 1 are in contention for figure of the year for me.


2nd thing: Scorn and Nitro amusingly transform somewhat similar: split the crotch, the arms go wonky ALA Beast Wars Megatron, and the legs plus in, and the rest sort of wraps it up.

Scorn is the best dinobot of the movie franchise. He beats his deluxe version, which was the best already, by a long shot. I love the paintwork (premium feel really on the dino parts) and the spiky nature is so sweet. And he is dense and huge and I love him. He feels better than Sludge from AoE, and that was the only voyager dinobot I got. His transformation is lots of fun, and the mode mode is imposing. The only detriment is lack of an accessory, like a sword or something, but the posable tail/lance arm is still really good. Oh and both dino and robo heads are sweet. Highly recommended. Best Dinobot in AGES.

Nitro Zeus is also really good, and at the moment is my pick for figure of the year, just beating out voyager Megs. His transformation is slightly hard the first time, but after you get it that first time, it is a breeze! it is wonky and fun and he has lots of guns! (poetry, my dear friends). His left arm has that big gun that is his jet mode thruster, and the right arm is his entire jet mode cockpit and nose. And the cockpit is still fully titan master compatible, being the power source of a giant shield/crossbow thingy. Thunderwing from the siege set will be so comfortable there! He works in every way possible! And then there are miniguns on his shoulders. The head is killer, the detail is killer, and i love the wings becoming giant thrusters/cannons/missile racks. And the tail fins are really not that bad, they sort of just go with his bulk and fun.

Overall: buy both. The only TLK voyager you should really ignore is Grimlock. Buy everything else, especially waves 2 and 3, on sight

I just got my Calibur Optimus, and he came with this tucked inside the package!

This is the second time I've heard of this happening. I ordered mine from Hobby Link Japan just in case, since that's where I heard someone else got one of these in the box, forget who, he was on a vid review... and I got one too! There's nothing on the box about it or in the instructions so I think Takara might have goofed at the factory? :-? Either way, figure is awesome, as good as I hoped, though that riot shield, not the gold one, the truck parts shield, is HUUUUUUGE and heavy! Whatever... still rocks. If anyone's been wanting one of these grab him from HLJ if you want a shot at a free gold shield. :-D

Maybe HLJ bought up enough Calibur Optimus Primes from the stores to get a Gold Vector Shield for each one. The shield itself is a separate, store-exclusive campaign item that comes free with a certain quantity of TF products purchased, so HLJ could have bought up enough stock from the stores to get the shields to go with the figures.

Nitro Zeus' transformation does neat things but isn't very fun -- kinda like Long Haul or Rampage, I suppose, but with more vehicle parts usage. NZ's robot and jet modes are pretty boss, though.

Weapon: Sword
So I got voyager Megs and Hound in the mail today (FINALLY), and I wanted to share my thoughts.

First up, Hound!

Image

...I love this guy. Easily one of my new favorites. His bot mode just looks so good, all the paint on him and the sculpting are awesome, and there's so much poseability. I like how they did the feet, really clever. I would prefer if they did it in a more movie accurate way, but it would probably be impossible at that size, so I'll give it a pass.

Image

He just oozes character. Only things I'd change would be to change some joints to screws so they can be tightened when necessary, and give him more guns. I'd use the AoE guns (believe me, I'd love to and I'm so glad they made that a feature) but I don't have that Hound.

Image

Vehicle mode is good too. Lacking in paint, sure, but does what it's supposed to and looks good doing it. Transformation is fun, but it has some clearance issues.


Now for Megs!

Image

This is the guy I was waiting for, and wow. Definitely lived up to expectations, another new favorite. I loved this design in the movie, and I really hope they don't change it moving forward. The toy captures the look really well, and overall I like it more than the leader version. The only things I'd really change are minor things.
-Wrist swivel and pivot (because sword-wielders should always have those)
-Slightly larger cannon, with a stronger joint for the tip
-Tilting/rotating sword peg on the back
-More rounded battle skirt
-Adjustable horns
Add all that and he'd be flawless, but without those he's still pretty great.

Image

And you can still get him in some really cool action poses.

Image

Looks great with Prime, too!

Image

Jet mode, while not as imposing as that of the leader, is also great. Good size, and the transformation is fun once you get the hang on of it. I just wish the wings/legs and the arms tabbed in a bit more securely.

Overall, love 'em both. Highly recommended. :D
