Finally a Megatron toy worthy of buyiing

Just the prototype, but looks sweet.

One thing I'm waiting for is a Megatron Masterpiece toy that looks as accurate and badass as the recent string of Masterpieces. The recent Prime Masterpieces look fantastic, but we never get a Megatron of the same caliber. I think the crux of the problem is finding a way for a walther p-38 gun handgun to transform into a robot mode Megatron that's true to form (hence I guess why this Megatron is the go-to easy-way-out tank Megs).

That is sweet. War Withinish. And a war within me whether I want to fork over the cash for that.

MegaSteel looks great, Gladius as a triple changer would be awesome... but both will probably run me about 100$, and I will probably just get Generations Voyager Megatron, who apparently will have an Autobot symbol option a la MTMTE. And his Armada counterpart will hit the shelf at the same time.

Or do one big poo in the morning and another one in the afternoon. I bet they weren't even excited by and then subsequently disappointed by Star Wars Prequels. Or have a glass full of spare change near their beds. That they don't have.

Hmm. I think he looks a bit like he is wearing eyeliner.

Which is fine.

But not very Meg's-ish in my book.
