Fellow Seibertronian Bacem picked up a toy that has been lingering on US shelves for a little while now, Authentics Megatron, the bigger one. There has been very little info about it out there so we wanted to share with you the images the user took. Like that you can get an idea of what this is a voyager sized toy at a deluxe price point has to offer.

Seems decent in my eyes, so i pick him up.

This is the best Authentics figure so far, IMO. Besides obviously bigger version of the smaller one, it had a bit more improvement.
In tank mode, his head actually folded in.

In robot mode, he looks identical with the smaller one, except with more details. He has additional ankle tilt and waist rotation, so his articulation is the best among all Authentics figures.

Lastly, size comparison with Grimlock.

I like that this gives an alternative to those who want a Megatron,but can't pay much.

Wow, so Hasbro decided to cut the middleman and make their own knockoffs, huh?

I'm hoping for a re-release of that Cyber Battalion Starscream in proper colors and 2 repaints.

Yes! I love this thing! It's so simple yet good in all modes.
Tank mode's a bit okay but presentable. Good articulation and very nice robot mode.

I love the first version so much I bought 4 to make a small Megatron Army.
The Beeftank was their leader first, but this will be their new leader.
Or I'll just start a voyager sized simple transformation great looking Megatron army.

Hasbro needs to do this more, just upsize some great scouts and legion/legend/cyberverse
figures.

There's a tiny cyberverse Optimus Prime out there with the perfect transformation.
Voyager size it up and give it knees Hasbro pls.

No, nah, never, and only on one case, which isn't the case,but.... This figure is only good for one thing and that's being a bigger figure for a lower price. Door a figure thats that size he is more than likely more detail, transformation whise, so I wouldn't mind the $30 Voyager class figure price. It being and less means it's gonna be of a less quality.. and totally that's this figure.
It will not be on my shelf nor am I'm spend my hard earned money on this figure... No, nah, never, nope....

that is fair, because you are obviously not the target market of this figure. These are marketed for dollar store, for younger kids in particular, not for collector. It just so happens that there are collectors that attracted to these as well. Nobody's forcing you to buy them to begin with.

Didn't really care for Megatron that much when we first saw him, just wasn't crazy about the shoulders, but it's growing on me. Maybe I'll check Big Lots this weekend.

you are correct about the shoulder. The range of movement is limited due to parts clashing against parts.

Which retailers are carrying this Voyager-sized Authentics Megatron? I might want to acquire one for my shrine to his glorious-ness.

They're for smaller "variety" stores so you'll want to check places like Walgreens, Big Lots, Family Dollar, and Dollar General. I've seen them at BL for sure.

Oh boy! A scavenger hunt. Thankfully I know of a couple near me that would be good places to check. I am gonna go hunting this weekend then for sure once the temperatures are no longer like the ice planet Hoth from Empire Strikes Back outside here. Thanks for letting me know!

I want an upsize of this Starscream because they might be able to adjust the size of the nosecone and maybe do more with the arms. I'd like the fists to fold in and peg into place but I'll settle for having the arms peg into place.

They usually tweak the upsized versions from the original mold. Bee and Prime got elbow joints, they weren't useful but they are there.

Here's a full and proper video review of Big Un Megs that really shows the changes they made in up-scaling the figure.

Dang, totally slipped my mind that I was going to do this. I was right next door as it sits right between the grocery store and Dollar Tree, both of which I went to Friday. :roll: Maybe next week.
