That beard, why can't it fold better? :BANG_HEAD: I want to love this Jetfire so much, but that beard when he's displaying that awesome SR-71 Blackbird mode can't fly. I can't un-see it, most of the rest of the bot being kibble under the jet I can ignore as elements can be kinda taken a landing gear, just not that beard.

Leader DOTM Megs has some chunky legs. Looks like he has elephantiasis in BOTH legs, and then he's got backwards Popeye arms. I'm also leery of that cape/cloak as the weave on the fabric looks very loose, and there isn't any stitching on the edges of it to hold the fabric together, or to prevent edge fraying that I can see.

I do like Igor. The little body-less head is so adorably ugly, but not enough to warrant leaving the Megs to sit in the box in some storage tub.

Man I know some people don't like Megatron being that boxy but I personally like it, if I get him he will be a Generations Megatron. (I mix all of my figures together in one "big" generations collection, different versions of characters like say POTP Jazz and Movie Studio Series Jazz are either different characters with new names where susceptible like Movie Ratchet being Meltdown from TFU or completely new characters, generic army filler or otherwise)

Ah I saw that one a couple weeks ago while I was Christmas shopping, I was tempted but it was to expensive for me at the time, there was two of them there, the regular Studio Series Bumblebee was there as well.

For the record, I still find it odd that a seemingly "smaller" Megatron (always saw the tanker truck alt mode as smaller than movie 1 space ship or movie 2 space tank) gets a leader class figure. I figure because of mass shifting Megatron's robot mode was always pretty much the same size, I understand the need probably to try to find a way to sell more leader class, but its just off putting to me, should have kept this one voyager class.

It's probably due to the fact that the truck he transforms into is "God damn huge" since it's not just the truck but also the long tanker as well, it's longer then any other alt mode he has in the movies besides maybe the TLK plane which itself is "thinner" then the truck which is both big in mass and long.

He's still taller then Optimus in DOTM itself as well.

But yeah, I don't know how tall he is but I hope that he's still relatively in scale with the others.

Igor is the best as well and I will hear no objections otherwise about that cute, little, green...head.

No, what they should have done is engineer it to better compress the mass (and just plain better engineer it). Megs' tanker truck mode is more or less the same size as his first 2 altmodes, but with the mass distributed differently (length instead of breadth).

Here's the problem with making him a Voyager:

I think if they'd really put their mind to it they could have done a Leader Megs that scaled properly with a Voyager Optimus (taller but not monstrously so, and also bulkier and broader). But alas.

Maybe It's because DotM is such a chore to watch, or because you only saw that tanker truck one (two?) times, but I never saw it to be huge/massive.

Here is an interesting size chart. I disregarded all the animated Megatrons, since there really isn't any size scale there, but Movie Megatron being 35 feet tall in robot mode in movies 1-3 does seem to make sense.
I would think the Space Ship (movie 1) would be his largest alternate mode, with space tank being (from RotF) slightly smaller, and tanker truck from DotM being smaller still.

It's a Mack M915 tractor - which is a 21' truck - plus a trailer that's around 35-40'. The M915 tractor on its own isn't as long as the Peterbilt 379 but with the trailer factored in it ends up being fairly hefty. Like, have you ever been next to a semi with a trailer on?

We actually see Megs' tank mode in close proximity to Optimus' truck mode in ROTF - it's wider and bulkier, but not much longer. So the mass would seem to about tally with a smaller cab and a trailer.

Yes I'm not judging the size of the truck from the movie but the actual size of the vehicle itself from photos and videos from the filming.

But yes Megatron's tank and jet modes from the first two movies are not actually that big, they have mass but they look bigger then they actually are, their Cybertronian modes without pilot cockpits so they can afford to be smaller.

I for one am just glad to have a new properly sized alternate mode DotM Megatron, who is a fantastic design. I love that design, and will hear no objections to this truth.

I played with the DotM one a lot, Ramming him and my Leader Nightwatch Prime from the Allspark line (still the #1 figure I own D-Max Fact) into each other recreating the Ironhide and the Dreads scene from DotM. I have always wished he wasn't affected by the DotM smallening, but now we get to correct that. I am happy.

Sometimes I wish that other Megatron's would use this design or one inspired by it as a "defeated/exiled" Megatron, or as a new neutral, wanderer, character who doesn't fight for any side yet isn't a bounty hunter.

It's such a good and unique design.

BotCon 2015 Megs paid homage to it. ;)

With the acclaimed Studio Series line marching onward triumphantly into 2019, we have just received a new review of the line’s latest offering, Battle-Damaged Megatron, which most of us know emulates Megatron’s appearance following the climactic final showdown between him, Optimus Prime and the Fallen in the second film. The review comes courtesy of YouTuber PrimeVs.Prime, who has thus far extensively catalogued the line beyond today’s subject. He goes into detail regarding the detailing of the figure, and gives a side-by-side comparison between the new edition and it's predecessor.

Primevs.Prime’s Review:



What do you think of this new Megatron? Are the alterations enough to justify a second purchase of the same mold, or are you skipping out on both versions entirely? Share your thoughts in the Energon Pub below, and stay tuned for further Transformers News and Reviews here on Seibertron!

Sigh... this smacks of what they did to Bumblebee last year:

1. Camaro Bumblebee
2. VW Beetle Bumblebee
3. Retro Rock Garage Vol. 1
4. Retro Rock Garage Vol. 2
5. Charlie's Garage (extra parts and a Charlie)
6. Clunker Bumblebee

Six, SIX repaints... and 2 molds. Two greatly flawed molds, I might add. Megatron is no different. A greatly flawed mold (if still a definitive look for the figure) that we really don't need a repaint of. This should have been the original color scheme, with the face intact given that this damaged condition lasts for all of maybe 20 seconds of screen time out of the entire cinematic universe (somewhere somebody said, "We're not going to call the DotM Megatron our 'battle damage' Megatron?"). I mean WWII bee was more established!

He's an ugly dude, I'll give him that. Absolutely nothing is attracting me to double dip on this mold though. What a mess. Should've thrown in another "minicon" for good measure, like the "Kill zee little one!" dude or something.
