Front Paged and Credited Stormrider, thanks for the heads up. This has done nothing more then wet my appetite for MP Megs even more.

I also can't wait for the Sport Lable TFs as well. So much appeal to them, I just don't know what to do with myself :DANCE:

Actually, that's a "Srorts Label Transformer", if one looks at the label closely.

Is that a typo?

I would guess it is, It could just be a poor translation me thinks.

Oh BTW, that was not so good looking with the orange cap.... :sad:

I've been kind of out of the loop lately with Law School Apps and Job interviews for the past few months; anyone care to tell me where I can import one without the orange saftey tip?

Don't need one. There are two buttons at the top of the news story that take you to the link itself.

Edit: Nevermind, looks like someone put one there anyways. The balance has been restored. :P

I dont think thats a unibrow, I think that is to show depth perception of the recession from his forhead to his eyes

well the original g1 megatron had very skinny legs and I don't understand why you are all upset. if you loved G1 megs so why worry about this one. plus since it is based on the show and toy it will have skinny legs no matter what

It comes out at the end of the months so I would guess late March early April.

Most people don't have a huge problem with it. Just comparing it to the other MPs in the line make it look rather weak is all. I like that he has skinny legs like G1 Megs. Gives it a nostalgic feel.

Damn it, I swore I wouldn't get this and that the MP line was dead to me because of the orange crap. But he's so friggin' cool looking!

Anybody know if the shoes can actually be worn by a child? That would rule all. It would sure beat out all those other fads we see with the roller sneaker thingys and stuff. This would be the coolest of all shool grounds!

Both of them look awesome. I must have. I'm very suprised at how cool the robot mode of the sneakers look.

well glad you like it. I can't wait to get mine. do you think that the head gimmick is more of a battle mode than a g1 toy head. I think if the eyes could be visible it would count as a g1 head. I mean't the critics who hate for being small. weel you could agree with me that since it is based on the gi toy so it will be small. sucks that they never will come out with a mini-bots master piece box set. or even a grimlock or a hot rod. masterpiece soundwave? I wish. right.

No, it's based on G1. Compare this to the alternate head:

They could if they weren't packed full of transormer parts. They are making a kids shoe with Transformers logos on them. That's just as good to a kid. (mind you I would have given anything in the world to have Gretskys shoes from "Pro*Stars" :P

I really don't think it's a G1 head because there are no eyes to it. If it is suppose to be a G1 head that TT is getting lazy, bug time. As for another MasterPiece, I would see it being another big player in the series. If there were to do one, they could easily re-paint Starscream into one of the other seekers. But if it were to be an original mould... I would guess Grimlock, Rodimus or Galvatron. I could even see those three being next in line for the T.H.S. treatment. Who knows, we might get a nice teaser from what ever is included in MP-Megatrons contents.

To be honest I can't see it being an alternate head. It's got to be part of the Transformation.
