I thought this was already known? TFWiki's entry of MP Megatron has said 1 April for the longest time...

While I'm interested, I'm really going to wait to hear some reviews before I buy another Masterpiece Megatron.

Heavily depends on the speed of delivery you choose.

Based on weight, shipping method, and ultimatly exchange rate of the day. I used highest priority to ship Legends Ultra Magnus (CW mold) and it cost about $32 and at a time when exchange was really good. I'm sure Megs weighs more then UM did. :(

Edit: Since then I've honed my patience and take the cheap slow route. :lol:

I wonder what Megatron's packaged weight will be? MP Ultra Magnus was a hefty figure, but his cheapest shipping option was also his fastest:

So Megatron could potentially ship for relatively cheap.

The Key to Vector Sigma, just as pudgy looking and undefined as in the cartoon. Gotta love Takara's cartoon accuracy.
