Everything is fodder.
Reborn in a powerful triple changer body granting him superiority in land and air combat, this new version of the Decepticon marauder is an impressive figure, loosely inspired by his current body in the IDW comics – assuming said body had scanned an Earth tank. Solid in all his modes, he is a lot of fun to transform and mess with, and the robot mode has excellent balance, aided by the wingtips on the ankles. There’s also some good sculpt work on the head and the chest, which helps to separate this mold from its intended reuse as Blitzwing. It’s the planned reuse as Blitzwing which hurts this one, since the mold has so many elements intended for use as Blitzwing which makes this a perfect Blitzwing toy, which just happens to have come out first as Megatron. This is a pity, because the mold does look good as the Decepticon leader, and is deserving of consideration as more than just “that Voyager Megatron they’re retooling into Blitzwing”.
