This also gives us a good look at his finalized deco, which is covered in silver paint, or so it seems. Let us know what you think of this toy and if this picture has changed your mind in getting him.

Well, Kanrabat, the gods heard your prayers and delivered. A few users sent these images in and since the source would rather remain anonymous we will simply post the images below. They include images of the robot mode compared to the CG model, shots of the accessories being wielded, and images of the space jet mode. The person who received the toy said that it was very well articulated and felt very hefty. There is indeed die cast in select areas, such as the feet. As always, feel free to let us know what you think!

And i really don't think they could have got him any more perfect. I love him. That right there is exactly what i wanted in an update to my first ever Transformer
I am very happy for you. They updated my first ever Transformer a few years ago and it is such a poor update that I wouldnt call it an update at all and more of an homage.

After getting several rounds of in hand images and size comparison, we have a new advertisement for the figure licensed by Hasbro. This advertisement is a stop motion video, and over the course of this short video, we get some awesome stop motion shots of Megatron breaking free from the cryogenic ice and transforming to escape the Hoover Dam, as seen in the original Transformers 2007 Live Action Movie.
This video came to us from the 變形金剛同樂會 Facebook page, and you can view the video in all its glory below! Let us know what you think of the next Movie Masterpiece figure, which will be due out in August of this year, below!

Movie Megatron design is one of most imposing out there.When its said he controls the Decepticon faction through tyranny,you can feel it.
The eyes of the toy look better in thee pics than the the stock photos.
An excellent by HasTak!
The Transformers game intro shows thiis design in a brief,but in a menacing way.

Ah, fuck it. I’m probably gonna cave. GOD knows I have weak will when it comes to toys.

If I had the money to collect MPM's I would so be doing it right now.
I'm hoping the eventual Studio Series version of this Megatron will be a sufficently acceptable scaled down copy as much possible.
And I love Jazz more everytime I see him (transformed correctly).

And for once, the 2007 Megs is getting love, not the redundant ROTF one.

He looks awesome- the robot mode is more or less spot on and the vehicle mode is as good as a physical transforming Knifejet is ever going to look. I wish he had a nice "grimy steel" paintjob like his movie model but at the same time it would probably scratch to hell and back if they did that. He looks a phenomenal toy at any rate.
One thing that would have been nice is some clip-on ice pieces so you could display him in "stasis".

I'm pretty sure some 3P guy is already on it.

Damn I love this one. The figure looks better than the old promo pic it's recreating the pose of.
