Honestly, I thought the review itself was pretty good.
Megatron though. A little peeved that he's kinda smallish, but I'll end up with one anyway.

Looks pretty cool and I like the cape and hood (and I disagree that it should have been made from cloth, cloth capes look terrible and have annoyed me on other figures I've owned whereas the rubber at least keeps it looking a good shape). It's just the size that lets it down a bit for me. Figures seem to be getting smaller but more expensive these days. Also the black bumper bits are annoying in that you have to take them off and clip them. I thought we had moved on from 'partsformers' crap. At least the mech gear or whatever it's called weapon can be stored away in truck mode to not look stupid like a lot of them do. I far prefer weapons that can be hidden away in alt mode, but these are annoying and make the vehicles have unsightly holes.

Hopefully there's a Leader version coming out?

Wow, I'm NOT a fan of this.

While I like the Megs has an actual alt mode this time around, I'm just not liking a lot of what I see.

The Phantom of the Opera cape is silly.
A claw thingy instead of a fusion cannon is lame, and the phenomenon of the incredible shrinking voyagers cheeses me off.

I may end up with him, if they hit a sale, just to round out my movie Megs lineup, but he's not on my "must buy" list.

Megatron is a septic truck. ;) You heard it hear first from ConBotFormer :lol: Hope he gets a leader class.

My initial thought on this fig was pretty much wait and see. After the review, I'm less impressed. It's not complete garbage, but there's plenty not to be crazy about. Limbs seem long and lanky, the cloak is necessary to hide the new Skids/Mudflap-like head, and while the weapon can at least be concealed, it's still pretty awkward and unsightly. Certainly not a must have, but nothing from DOTM really seems to be.

Definitely hoping for a leaderclass version. I am glad he got an Earth mode, as i have never been fan of the Cybertronian forms. I also kinda dig the cape... could work well to hide his scarred face. This character sort of reminds me of general Grevious from star wars (not necassarily a bad thing). Have to wait and see what the finished character is like on screen. I cant wait to see Soundwave... hopefully he finally gets an Earth mode. :CON:

He's small, but I have to have this figure. Looks a lot better than all previous versions.

Looks kinda cool, but this better not be the final colour scheme. I, like everyone else, am still anticipating a Leader figure.

I don't see why everybody hates the cape. I think it's a pretty cool accessory, it's a cool detail in truck mode, and we finally get a modern Megatron with a realistic earth alt-mode. I'm prolly gonna pick him up, because none of the other Movie Megatrons looked very appealing to me. I only usually get 2-3 figures per line, and this is one I'm pretty psyched for. His color scheme is pretty bland, though. I might paint him purple, to continue the tradition of faaaaaaabulous Decepticon leaders (one that has not been continued in the past few years.)

Remember: Classics Prime was really small, too and he was great.

Looks like it's comparable in size with HftD Battle Blades Prime. If TF3 Prime ends up being crap, I might pick that up along with this one. I also think this is the best megatron alt. mode in Bayverse so far.

I'm surprised no one (to my knowledge) has mentioned this: It's on the wrong end of the trailer.

For it to be billowing or flapping the way it is, Megatron would have to be driving at high speed in reverse.

Also annoyed by the tires on the sides of the tank. They look completely out of place - when I first saw them I assumed they had to be there to hid some gimmick, they were buttons or something. Knowing now that they don't seem to do anything makes them ugly and pointless, which just seems to make their ugliness uglier. Are they there just to make his 'gun' look more vaguely G1-ish?

I like the figure overall. Looking at it from a custom point of view, I'm sure I'm not the first one to think this but, I see Motormaster :D It will take some modification but, it could be done. I'll pick it up just to try.

Megatron looks pretty cool! Hopefully his face battle damage isn't too bad, it seems like the Decepticon leader should be in good condition... I still like his look from the first movie the best though; you just can't beat it in my opinion.

I love Megatron's Assassin's Creed hood! Every one has one but me now. :-(

I kind of like him. Not a fan of the small head, but I will still get it. Probably some paint love comming his way on my end.

I cant justify buying this figure. Hasbro didn't even try really. No paint applications and the face looks horrible. Hopefully they make a leader version that is a little more impressive.
