Courtesy of 2005 Boards member Phamduc we can share our first in-hand images of the new Masterpiece Movie MPM-08 Megatron for your viewing pleasure.
This new incarnation of Megatron (from the Transformers 2007 movie) is one of the most detailed Masterpiece figures to date. A real improvement in engineering and movie-accuracy compared to the first Leader Class Megatron toy from 2007. Phamduc shared some comments about the figure, here you are some highlights:
- Impressive sculpt of Megatron’s complex design and details.
- The All Spark cube included can fit into Megatron’s chest in order to recreate his final moments in the movie.
- The backpack of the figure compress the wings better than the old Leader class toy.
- Excellent articulation. The feet has both ankle tilt and also forward/ backward movement which makes easy to recreate poses from the movie and the promotional material.
- The “chain” of the battle maze is made of soft plastic. Not bendable, sorry.
- MPM-08 Megatron is even taller than MP-36 G1 Megatron, opening the gates for more really big characters in the Masterpiece movie line.
- Alien jet mode is huge. The legs are now placed in the rear part of the alt mode and not under the wings like the first Leader class toy.
The new Masterpiece Movie Megatron is sure a tempting piece for any live-action movie collector. Click on the bar now to see all the mirrored images on this news post and then sound off your impressions on the 2005 Boards!
