ROTF Megatron

Photobucket
I can't resist to buy another piece of crap as long as it is called TF and it is a new mode. Megatron toys in the first movie already suck, the new toy in ROFT does not improved much. The alternate mode is a so-callled Cybertronian tank, but i can only think of this creature! The robot has some improvement over the first movie one, but still lack of articulations. How can Hasbro give such a bad desgin to the Decepticon leader? Even Demolisher is better than Megatron. It is better to save your money and skip this to wait for the Leader class Megatron.
Anyway, more pics for you to make your decision. (click to enlarge the pictures)

Mixmaster and The fallen are much more attractive!

Tank? Jet? Who cares!

Robot mode is not that bad actually. But the arms are not qualified for Voyager class toy.

This is the big claw with MechAlive gimmick. The blade flips out when you bend the arm.

The only nice part in this figure is the head sculpt! Evil!

(2009.04.20) I found there is another MechAlive gimmick! There are 4 gears in the upper torso of Megatron. When you turn his waist, the gears move! Nice detail!

Actually, this is probably the best "Cybertronian Alt mode" Transformer I've seen in quite a while. I think you're being way too critical of it. Sure the backpack and shellforming is lame, but the robot mode kicks ass.

You gotta admit that it beats the frozen jet Megatron with carrot hands from the first movie, if nothing else. And I'm no big Bayformer nut either, I've hated just about every figure of movie Megatron except this one.

I didn't have much time to follow the ROTF toys news when I did this review. After I looked at the photos of Leader Megatron, I agree that the Voyager one is already the best. I also missed the MechAlive gimmick of the chest in this Voyager figure. I will grade it up with these moving gears. However, the arms still suck.

What's wrong with arms? Is it a lack of articulation, or a quality control issue?

Fatguy said...

Yes, the arms lack articulation, especially the left arm. And I hate Megatron with no fists!

the leader class figure's arm articulation sucks even more by the way... cannon arm has none at all and the left arm is waayy too small and deformed looking
