Thanks to a few different sources, we have for you today a new in-hand video that shows off the highly anticipated MP-36 Megatron! The video features no commentary, but it does show some nice close-ups of the figure along with its accessories. The video also looks into some of the articulation, and if you are a fan of ratcheting joints, some joints here should make you very happy. Check out the video below, and be ready! This figure is set to drop next month!

It looks like the gun barrel on his back can be shifted around a bit. It was sitting behind his arm in box, with the sight facing straight ahead, but behind his back out of the box, with the sight more askew.

It had better look better, the one on the left is a hand painted prototype and the one on the right is the final product. ;) Though honestly I think the final figure looks a little worse, but it probably isn't a good idea to judge based on a low quality video.

Why would they announce that they're going to cancel it next month? :???: Is "drop" not slang for "release" in the UK?

The placement of the barrel on his back. ;)

Unless it's just the angle, there appears to be a hinge that allows you to position the barrel closer to his back and further away from behind his shoulder.


Edit: definitely not the camera angle, the barrel is adjustable.
Compare the stock factory position vs how it looks out of the box:



Yay!

Really glad that he appears to have a silver gloss on him as opposed to the initial flat grey. Looks so much better.

Meh. Question for me now is, do I cancel my preorder, or try and make a quick couple of bucks on ebay?

Depends. 3rd party 2ndary market value is sure to "skyrocket" over the original. Collector wise not worth the effort.

I'm talking about this new one. Do I cancel mu preorder, or go on and get it. I'll get it shipped from HLJ for about 200, and I figure I could easily turn around and sell it on eBay for at least 250.

Secisions, decisions.

It's not bad, dint get me wrong. If I didn't already have Despotron, I'd be all over thus. Far better than Appolyon or Mightron, I just like my current version better.

Who knows, maybe I'll change my mind when thus guy is in hand, but I already ignored my gut once (Inferno), I won't be doing that again.

I'm still getting him together with MP Starscream. Just see him first and get your "zing" before you dump him.

This is the video on hand Megatron 2.0 prepared to customers who have ordered before
The product is very good at painting. Good match with large metal parts at gun mode.

And the last from A Prime Problem iirc.

According to tco, Vector Sigma key is die-cast.

Asia version will get something......... :lol:

According to tco

"As for the sound gimmick, there are two buttons found on scope -- one of them is pressed for audio; another red translucent button is used for switching sound effect. Besides of some solo Japanese dubbings (one of them is Megatron's laughing dubbing, I can't understand Japanese, but they all sound good to me), u can switch to blasting sound effect or transforming sound effect."

Fellow (and new!) Seibertronian MachineHeart88 has shared with us a video review / look at the new and upcoming Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece Megatron, in its second incarnation in the line! Check it out below, along with some images from TFW2005's user tco's in hand images of the Decepticon leader in his many faces.

That.. actually looks a lot kibblier than I was expecting?

Don't get me wrong I'm still totally in love with the way this guy looks, but with such a super-clean front side I was surprised to see the number of panels and various pieces hanging out on his back. Gun mode looks a right treat, though I'm still unsure as to what the situation will be in Australia with all those replica gun laws and things, and I still adore the whole battle-damaged thing he can have going on!

Bottom line I'm still almost certainly going to spring for this guy if I can - and seeing that he's not perfect weirdly makes him more appealing to me I think. Either way, it'd be great to have the two definitive faction leaders finally facing off in my collection!
