Edit, also, if TakaraTomy had released the pic below, would you honestly pick a gold MP-05 over a new v2 Megatron? I'm not going to turn this into a 3rd party discussion. This is all I'll say on that figure. If this was from TT, people would be jumping through the roof in excitement.

What is that awesomeness on the left?

That is Xtransbots - MX-I Apollyon, to be exact.

On tfsource.com they are selling it for about $150 (pre-order).

I am really considering it getting one myself :CON:

Why is the test shot in standard Megatron colors? And why does MP-05 look so much better with that color scheme? If that's actually what the reissue will look like when unpainted, then I'm going to need a lot of nail polish remover...

That was partially in jest. I say "partially" because my sleep-deprived brain somehow completely skipped over that eBay listing.
Has anyone else bought one of those test shots? If so, does it have the same die cast pieces as the original? Thanks!

It just seemed like not too long ago we received news of a gold reissue of Masterpiece Megatron. Now, Seibertron.com member and renown reviewer optibotimus has his hands on this reissue and gives us his thoughts! The review has been mirrored below:



Is this figure worthy of your collection? Or are you passing in the hopes of a second go at the Decepticon leader! Tell us your thoughts in the Energon Pub forum!

Definitely a pass for me! I don't see a reason to go for the same out of scale,fragile mishap in ugly gold color!
Instead I will pick and give a chance to the MX-I Apollyon

While I could not care less for the gold, I really like the review of the mold. I am a huge MP Megatron fan but only got him this year and thus was ready for such a complex transformer. I wasn't thrown off by any of the old reviews and opinions.

And the same goes for the Alternators. They are the most underrated transformers of all time. Looking back, I cant believe it. They were sold for 20$ and had the engineering or a masterpiece. If anyone wants a masterpiece Hound, Jazz or Tracks, they simply have to hunt down their alternator releases. And they scale beautifully with other MP releases, check out the difference between alternators and classics jazz:

I got an unopened MP Meg's in the mail the other day. It's astonishing at how unstable it is. The ball joints on the feet are so lose its impossible for him to stand. The hips don't support his weight, they just slide apart.
His waist collapses to the right under the weight of his gun.
He was missing components( the wings behind his back that form the underside of the gun just above the trigger) that ruined the gun mode.
Massive overspray of silver paint on the gun handle and deception insignia on his chest. Gouges and paint smears on the barrel and chest.

The saddest part is how loose he is though. The fact that he can't even stand is just remarkable to me. It's just soooo ridiculous. I was thinking of keeping it In bot mode for display but I can't even do that.
I'm currently trying to send it back to to the eBay seller for a full refund or at least another kick at the can with a replacement figure.

If that one comes back to me just as crappy then I'm gonna take a dump on the figure and set it on fire.

It's too bad because I really do like the figure quite a bit. It's so beautifully gangly and metallic like the g1. My fingers are crossed for a replacement that doesn't suck so hard. Or maybe I should just get a refund.

I'm a little upset about it though. I've never seen a figure fail so remarkably hard in regards to quality control before. Not just paint flaws but fully missing components and being unable to support itself in any shape or form in bot mode.

I really like the transformation of it though. I was intimidated by it at first by watching reviews and hearing testimonies of how horrific an ordeal it was but I didn't find it a problem. I quite enjoyed it.

Their problem is to still trying to make a fusion between the cartoons and the original toys... IMO the original toys where a need to get done the cartoons, BUT the cartoons came out way superior at the point to make the original toys looking dull, therefore they should use the cartoons as a new beginning...

Megatron should be redone out from scratch, but having only the cartoons as a reference.
