1. quality materials (NON-cheap, "heavy" plastic)
2. no major QC issues
I am totally already on board for this...at a hundred bucks easily worth the most quality Megs we have seen in a LONG time.

But... THIS I WANT TO GET!!! he looks awesome but im a bit concerned about the size of him he appears to be half the size of the MP prime so he would be just smaller than galvatron??

As for size, I have my FP insecticons right next to my classics Megatron and it does appear to no be too far off from the size of the classics version.

the puzzling part is the newest pics/info list this 3rd party megatron at 19 CM tall. that translates to 7.5 inches tall.
their is no way that TF Prime's voyager prime is around 7 inches tall.
PLEASE IF SOMEONE HAS A TF PRIME VOYAGER PRIME. Then PLEASE can you get a tape measure & measure the robot mode from head to toe. not from toe to smokestacks in robot mode.
another puzzling factor is that yesterday the 3rd party megatron was shown next to 4 hercules constructicons. and the 3rd party megatron was chest,shoulders,head taller than these third party constructicons.
if the 19 cm is true,then this puts the 3rd party megatron at 7.5 tall voyager/USA Ultra size scale.
if the 19 CM is true for this 3rd party megatron. then this means those hercules constructicons,some are deluxe size & some are short voyager size like animated lugnutz height. if this 19 cm is true then that TF Prime voyager prime is a very tall voyager 7 inch robot mode.
With all that said above,i'm gonna buy this 19 cm 3rd party megatron in june 2012. i was hoping it would come out before march 2012.
getting back to size,i was hoping it would be at least 8 inches tall in robot mode. so it could be a similar size scale to faith leader who is around 7 & 3/4 inches tall in robot mode. i was dreaming it would be AEC 9 inches leader size but somehow knew that was just a pipe dream based of the fact all the pics showed a robot mode that just wasn't wide nor bulky enough to merit leader toy bulk + wideness in robot mode.
i'm gonna wait & pray bbts.com gets this for pre-order. as they are the only site i trust.

Just making the plastic opaque would make the back of the legs look much better.
