Yesssssssssssssss. Masterpiece Beast Wars Megatron is in the building! MP-43 is a beast of a fig (some pun intended), giving the leader of the Predacons a worthy representation on any Beast Wars fan’s shelves. Standing taller than both MP-10 and MP-36, he’s a big bot. Transformation is similar to the original, with lots of added flips and tucks of course, resulting in very show accurate looks in both modes. HQ paint is present, giving the entire beast mode a 3D look to homage the show, while the robot mode gets metallic sheen everywhere. Accessories are solid with a show accurate rifle, toothbrush for his dino teeth, 2 extra faces and clips so he can use Dinobot’s display stand. He also features light up eyes and sounds (Japanese). In the show he was much larger than Optimus Primal, and the scale shows here, as he towers over the Maximal leader. There are reports of fragile torso and crotches leading to some breakage, but I did not have any issues myself. The torso was SUPER tight out of the box though.
Bottom line, this is a superb piece, high quality head to toe, fun, and accurate to the source. If you are a Beast Wars fan, and have the funds, he is definitely worth a pick up.
