Our own Cyberpath has shared with us a video demonstration of the sounds from Takara Tomy MP-36 Megatron's Fusion Cannon. This will shed some light on a previous article. It appears to have three modes. One for cannon fire sounds and when the toggle switch is flipped Megatron will speak; the third position has the two transforming sounds.

The phrases are all in Japanese, but it definitely sounds just like Megatron! They are also the same as the Galvatron G1 Reissue figure, and include the following:
"Wa-ha-ha-ha, kono orokamono-me!" (Bwah ha ha ha! You fools!), "Eei, Cybertron wo hineri-tsubuse!" (Hrr--crush the Autobots!), "Kono yaku-tatazu mono ga!" (You're all useless!), "Eei, hakai shite kureru wa!" (Grrah, I'll destroy you!), and "Destron gundan, transform!" (Decepticon army, transform!)

If you would like to get a better idea of what this cannon attaches to please check out this video review article. The cannon is only one of many pieces that comes with this stunning figure. In that same article there is a gallery of MP-36 Megatron wearing his accessories in different poses so you can see what he looks like out of the packaging. On a side note the cannon will be powered by 2 LR44 batteries.

Not my picture, bUT first in hand comparison I've seen. Defiantly makes me feel a whole lot better for canceling. Also makes me realize how much I DO NOT want cartoon accuracy to be the #1 design guideline.

Enjoy.

Do you ever look at one figure and think about how you don't like its aesthetic compared to the other one, and then you think about how the other figure might be better and realise you don't like it either and maybe you just don't like this design in general no matter which figure it is?

It's kind of depressing.

The problem is that I love the megatron design, I absolutely love it! But I cannot believe how difficult it is for them to give him a fun transformation. The g1 toy has a fun transformation, they could inspire themselves from that and give him better proportions.

Problem is-and while we don't know- it's just not possible. I'd like to believe they've tried(takara/Hasbro or 3rd parties) and it doesn't leave the design phase. MP-05 did try and it failed. There's a lot of design and transformation cues from the original and look how it turned out. It's not a alt mode that can translate into the cartoon model.

Personally I embrace any new design for Megatron. Tank, jet, bomber, helicopter etc. I've never been a fan of turning him into a gun. I like to sometimes change my stuff and display them and for me I've never liked having a bunch of jets, tanks and stuff and then this big gun. Only character I've accepted with that is a Shockwave because he literally turned into a giant gun.

It looks pretty tidy to me, nothing really sticks out, everything is folded nice in the shape of his body. Hopefully it's as good in-hand cause he wasn't cheap.

Besides, Megatron is supposed to be panely. :lol:

The wonders of different opinions....

Even though your post was backing up 36, to me, you just proved willyj's point. :lol:

At least this thread is being civil. The 36 fans on facebook are actively atacking and bashing anyone who disagrees on the fan pages. :(

While I don't have mine in hand yet. I can forgive his back. Could there have been an extra pannelnthe plugged in and sat over all that? Maybe.... but there's just too much robot moving around to ever have a Megs as clean as say.... Prime or Shockwave. Those saying "any non-gun" Megs is better. I agree from a playability stand point. But there is still something so iconic about the G1. With his chest making up the firing chamber of a pistol. Despite the fumbles I think Generations Silver-tank megs was a good compromise. He's simple, fun, has a lot of winks to the original.

That's what I love about Seibertron. It's generally a pretty civil, firendly, chill place. Compared to some communities where divergent opinion will start a sh*tstorm (*cough* Allspark *cough*) or where the environment is just perpetual arguing anyway (my beloved 4chan) it's just so much more...relaxed.

Couldn't agree more BH.

I truly love all these pics of MP Megs thus far. Waiting for him to be released has been an exercise in patience. 8-) :CON:

There's still *something* that makes me default to the MP series despite some tempting 3rd parties. But I can't quite put my finger on it. Is it a certain... delicacy with panels/plastic? Other designs seem to either be... heavier? Or less elligant. Not to derail this into a different debate. But there's just something about Megs that just "looks right" to me.

So, has this made it to the thread yet? From the same guy who did the first video.

... SELLS IT! All the panels, and kibbles, and whatever melt away when a figure can achieve so much character and attitude in one pose.
