So MPM-7 has a little gimmick giving him more guns, MPM-8 and MPM-9 have little gimmicks where you can replicate their deaths!
Also, they've revealed and announced these 2 in one weekend. Yet Optimus (Studio Series from Bumblebee Movie and Cybertron inspired Siege leader) remains unannounced and we've yet to get a proper look at the new Omega???

Be thankful Hasbro works directly with Takara Tomy on these to keep the price down and he isn't $300+ like Hasbro's Beast Wars Megatron.

Frankly I'm really happy with the price at the size and complexity. I'm really looking forward to him now! Might still import depending on the cost, though. :WHISTLE:

I don’t mind Movie Megatron’s look. It’s certainly not my favorite iteration of Megs, but it’s not my least favorite either. I totally get why you and a lot of others don’t care for it though. For me, It’s a solid design, and I think it has its place. If nothing else he has a very striking silhouette, with his tapering short arms, and long chunky legs.

I 100% agree on Ratchet (my favorite autobot), Brawl and Bonecrusher though! I’m so excited to see what Takara does with those MPM figures!

Going off of MPM Bee, Barricade, and now Jazz I think it’s safe to say that they are knocking it out of the park on the car robots in particular. This upcoming Jazz looks so solid, and I’m completely in on this figure.

For a while I thought that HA Jazz and Barricade were the definitive versions of those figures for me, despite their flaws. Then came MPM Barricade who took everything great about the HA toy, and fixed, as far as I can tell, all the flaws. Looks s Jazz figure might do the exact same, which makes me very excited to see what they do with Soundwave, if they ever get around to doing DotM MPMs.


In terms of price, I wish Jazz was a little less, but overall I’m okay with it. I’m pleasantly surprised that Megs isn’t a small fortune. I’m fine with these prices. Especially since Megatron comes with such awesome looking accessories!

Jazz looks so good.

I’m torn, part of me wants to get Megs because I love the Masterpiece toys, and they did a really good job on him, but I just really don’t like that design. I don’t hate it as much as some, but it’s just so boring to me. But again, credit where it’s due, they knocked it out of the park.

I didnt hate the Megatron design until now, I think starscream was so bad it blindsided me over Megs. I can use bumblebee blitzwing as a stand in for starscream but as for the Baynus Megs, there is not really a design that stands out to me as being Megatron, with DOTM or the TLK being the best of the bad and way down on my to pick up list.

MPM Jazz will be a sure buy for me. As for Megatron, it's debatable because There is no real place for him in my collection. He look pretty amazing however and it's nice to see Movie 1 Megatron being treated right for once.

They look amazing!

If I could change one thing,it would be Megatron's eyes.Without lightup eyes,from some angles,it look likes he is squinting his eyes.
I would make something more similar to the 2007 toy,or other ones to make the eyes more noticiable:

Maybe for a studio series version.

I hope this does to Megatron's 2007 design what the studio series did to Starscream's 2007 design,where more people start to appreciate the design.
One thing you learn after hanging out with Transformers fandom for a good amount of time,its that we accept all kinds of robot styles if get a nice toy from it.

True that.
I used to HATE Doritos Starscream.
Then I bought the HFTD Leader Starscream on sale just to try it out. That toy was so amazing that it changed my mind completely about Movie Screamers.

$90 and no mentions of any diecast? I'll admit I like have my MPs/MPMs with a bit of diecast, as it helps me justify their price, but I'm starting to think that I may just wait to decide if I'm gonna save, or hunt for a greatly reduced price, for Jazz until I see a review.

They both look great. Jazz being able to split in two, though? I hope that doesn't affect stability/articulation. I can see that easily becoming a weak point for that toy.

Something I didn't quite understand from the press release:

Will be available for pre-order from Apr. 1 – May 17 and retail purchase on Nov. 1, 2019 through Entertainment Earth, BigBadToyStore, Diamond, and Southern Hobby.

What happens after May 17? Do the stores suddenly stop taking pre-orders, or does Hasbro just guarantee fulfillment until that point and anything after that comes from the stores' own stock? It's a very strange way of doing things when it isn't their own store or an exclusive product.

Also am I the only one that's never heard of Southern Hobby?

Haven’t heard of any sites, other than anime-export, doing cut off dates for preorders before.

The more I look at these shots, the more excited I get. I keep feeling like Megatron’s noggin is a smidge too large. I know that in the concept artwork he’s got a big head, but I had to look up some movie stills. Apparently his head was pretty big in the 2007 movie. On top of losing parts along the way, I think his head actually gets scaled back slightly with each movie. A smaller head does make him look much larger and formidable, which I prefer.

After SS figures like Brawl and especially Blackout, I’m very curious to see what their respective MPM figures might look like. Assuming they get around to doing them.

This might be the coolest piece of news from the year 2019 so far!!

First off, Megatron looks amazing. the 2007 voyager was my first ever Transformer, so to finally get an update of it, in MPM form, is a dream come true. He looks great!! I love that he comes with a mace and fusion cannon!! My dream has come true!!

My Transformers experience is about to come full circle at last. :D :D :D

Jazz looks amazing too! the SS is a really fun figure, so I can't wait to get the MPM. And we are now only 1 Bot away from the movie 1 Autobot cast! The rip in half feature, come on man! Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. But really, he looks great.

As for the comment regarding looking like the SS version of jazz and why would someone collect both MPM and SS: Isn't that basically the same thing with the regular MPs and the Generations lines? MPs and Generations styled lines are really different, it's not a fair comparison.

But yes, BOTH FIGURES ARE AWESOME
