It's hard to tell if the head is even remolded in that pic - the angle sort of throws it off.

Hell, even without the remolded head the figure is very much improved. It's at least 1000% times better now that they got rid of the blue and pink (oh so menacing!) and replaced it with Megatron's real colours. They really did a stelar job on the paint apps, the detail really jumps out at you!

A must-buy for sure, can't wait!

God, that looks so much better than that grayish-blue version the stores were selling back in June.

Ever hear the phrase: "You can't polish a terd?"

I thought I was going to get this repaint, until my brother got a leader class Megatron for Christmas. There is no amount of movie accurate paint that could get me to spend money on this mold. Especially when new, better figures are coming out this year.

Yeah...

Is there gonna be chrome on these premium figures?

If not, I am going to by them.

I am also extremely pissed.

:MAD:

How can they do this to people who have already gotten the shit colored Megs?

Now why couldn't the orignial edition of Leader class movie Megs look like this, this one is way better!

That is a MUCH better paint job for Megs. Too bad I bought the first one, but I guess that means I'll have two. One resembling the prequel comics character and one resembling the movie character. But, I thought the head was to be remolded? It looks the same to me. And does this version of the figure have the design flaws the first figure had? :? :?:

The color is much better, but I don't think it's enough to warrent this twice.
Re: First Look at Premium Series Leader Megatron In-Package (611613)

I am still totally convinced that's the same head.

The Best phrase I see using here is Michael Crawford's famous mantra "bad paint can ruin a good figure." I am definetly saving fourty bucks for this guy. Passing on the first three (leader, voyager, and premium voyager) was an excellent decision. But, due to my new collecting pattern I decided on; Movie, G1, I may have to start a new bank account to fund for Megatron. :grin:

"I'd like to make a withdrawl please."

"What account?"

"It's titled, 'Megatron Fund'" :grin:

Now that's what should have come out the first time. Still a so-so mold, but with better paint.

..........That still dosent look too movie accurate but since i dont have any of the movie leaders yet I might as well snag it.
It looks much better now anyway.
