Man oh man is Movie Masterpiece Megatron getting some love tonight!

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!

How curious it appears the allspark cube isnt the same as the previously released die-cast one, none of the glyph's match the positions

Ignore the sketch of Mad Mew Mew from Undertale

This figure looks really good, given what they had to work with. However I can't stop thinking that he looks like he has the Cybertronian version of Epidermodysplasia verruciformis :-?

I probably said this before,but this Masterpiece reaffirms what I tought for a long time.
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! :APPLAUSE: :BOWDOWN:

The Transformers game intro shows thiis design in a brief,but in a menacing way.

Man, he looks sooo good. I’m tempted to just say “fuck it” and get all the MPMs instead of sticking with just Movie Autobots.

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

jeebus that is a chunky Megatron! :O
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). :)

Man, the size to price ratio on Megatron is pretty outstanding. To see them say how tall he is is one thing, but seeing how tall and bulky he is compared to other MPs really is impressive. For $160 I feel like we're getting our money's worth. What I really want to see is him next to Beast Megatron because I think they're probably very close in size. Who'd have thought we'd get a group of MP Megatrons and MP-36 is the little one?

Okay, now I think I'm sold. Not only this Megs is ridiculously detailed and painted, the backpack is amazingly compact for what it will become in spaceship mode.

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

Good grief, he's HUGE!

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.

Is he shorter than the first G1 Masterpiece Megatron though? The tall skinny one before they revised the MP scale to a more consistent size?


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

I have both MP Megs on display together and based on the picture posted previously, I guess this MPM '07 Megatron is a smidge taller than the top of the gun barrel on the bot mode's back of the original MP Megs. Plus he's way more massive.

That is a hell of a backpack though.....


Also, the pricing on this guy really calls out the complete bullshit on mainline MP pricing.



Other than that, yeah, he looks good for those who like this design. Hopefully he doesn't follow in the footsteps of the other two large MPM figures and be a qc nightmare.

That backpack of his is pretty compact though, compared to so many transformers out there.

But yeah, his price is VERY reasonable compared to the current "Geewun" Takara MP.

It's really Hasbro's BS. Takara Tomy's prices have always been on the high side at MSRP, but you could get instant discounts to make the prices more reasonable. Hasbro used to do their own versions of MPs at much lower prices, but around the time they released Prowl they started using the Japanese MSRP prices on repackaged figures and now just release the exact same figure without even changing the boxes. There's really no reason why they couldn't do the same as they used to, they just chose not to. The MPM line is the only exception because Hasbro actually helps fund those so they get a better price worldwide. If Hasbro helped fund the other MPs or did their own variants again we'd have better domestic prices again.

I mean, different strokes and all of that, but there is nothing compact about this. I'm sure it could be much worse, but I just find it quite jarring, on an otherwise amazing piece of artwork. Sure, I hate the Movie Megs design, but this figure is such an amazing representation that it quite takes your breath away.

This figure is bigger than both BW Megatron, and Prime 44, yet less than half the price. Something does smell.

To me, this is perfection. You cannot possibly do any better than this.

This is my MP boy.

I mean, I hate the first few megatrons and galvatron for the sole reason that they had one job and they couldn't design a megatron with an arm mounted cannon, but I'll admit hes pretty amazing.

After yesterday's Stop motion video for MPM-8 Megatron, we have yet another Stop Motion to share with you today sponsored by Hasbro, this time advertising both MPM-8 Megatron and MPM-9 Jazz!

The new video does include some overlap to yesterday's video, but features a ton of new Megatron footage, a bunch of new Jazz footage, and some soundbites taken from the 2007 movie and other sources such as the 1986 movie! It showcases some of the articulation, the weapons, the transformation, and even Jazz's split in half to recreate his death moment. This once more comes to us from the 變形金剛同樂會 Facebook page, which you can check out by following this link.

Check out the video below, and let us know what you think of this latest Stop Motion video for the upcoming Masterpiece Movie figures!

From the side it does look big for a backpack. But I've seen much, much worse.

I'm also glad to see that I'm not alone in seeing how "normal" is the price of that Megatron.

Whoa, that second video is rather violent for a stop motion ad for a toy.
