Megatron-Robot-9

We’ve got a few more quick pictures of Transformers Prime Powerizers / Voyager Class Megatron for you now! I was lucky enough to pick one up earlier today and believe me, this is an excellent release. The robot mode is very accurate to the animation model, the spaceship mode is also pretty accurate, though the main attraction is definitely the robot mode.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so check out a whole bunch of them after the break!

    I was lucky enough to pick up Megatron earlier today and believe me, this is an excellent release. The robot mode is suitably menacing and looks very close to the animation model (the only exception are the vehicle mode "wings" hanging off the back). He's got a good range of motion too, and can strike plenty of "fear me, puny fleshing, for I. AM. MEGATRON!" supervillain poses.

    His transformation is quite involved and unique, and the end product is fairly faithful to the show design. What you make of it depends entirely on how you take this hybrid of Animated Cybertron Mode Megatron and Movie 1 Megatron jet mode designs.

    As far as the gimmick goes, the sword deploy on the MechTech is fun, and thanks to the way it is designed you can manually deploy the sword without damaging the mechanism. The light up feature is hit or miss, it looks okay on the sword and the arms, though the only place it really manages the whole "glow with power" thing is the robot mode. Still, having it in the weapon keeps the robot mode clear for simply transforming and being awesome.

    All in all, this one is going to be well worth a purchase once he hits retail. Well recommended.

    the brushed metal texture is amazing on the plastic, its just a shame they didnt paint it or use a darker color to bring it out, that is bone white...

    Looks cool to me. Kinda want to wait and see what Takara will do with it colorwise.

    That looks really good. Can't wait until they start hitting shelves.

    hmmm.. maybe Ill buy this figure, he actually doesnt look bad, hes got back kibble but you can fold the parts back so you cant see it. Lack of paint doesnt bother me at all because I can paint it myself if I really need to. The weapon is kinda weird because the sword doesnt fold all the way back, but that doesnt kill it for me. So this might go back on my buy list.

    Not really a fan of the sword and continuation of Mech-Tech. The sword looks too short to me.

    He matches up with FE Optimus pretty well. I hope we get FE Optimus in the states. I'm dyin' over here

    I love being alive in 2012 where I can buy this toy. We know he is not that big but his proportions are so powerful he LOOKS heavy.

    I think it looks about the length it had when he cut down zombie Cliffjumper on the show.

    I have to say I love the spiked shoulders on this guy. He looks like some sort of evil knight.

    Yeah the brushed effect really took me by surprise. I was very impressed, it's a fantastic touch.

    The colour in hand is pretty standard Hasbro gray plastic, but the brushed texture manages to save it from looking too "cheap". If Takara goes all silver though, that'll be a sight to behold.
