Note: This is the official reissue of MP-05 Masterpiece Megatron. This particular piece came from a high end collector, and is in great shape. However it only has one piece of tape on the end, which matches other factory sealed pieces TFsource has received.
Perhaps the hottest toy of 07', following up on the success of the ever popular Masterpiece line, MP-05 Masterpiece Megatron delivers on all accounts! Now your Materpiece Prime can enter the fray against his arch nemesis Megatron! Highly articulated and with a level of attention to detail only known to be present in the Masterpiece line, and includes many accessories this is a must have for every Transformers fan and collector!
"All Hail MEGATRON!!!"
This guy was the first of my Masterpiece figures. When I was a kid, my friends had these figures and that was as far as I got to playing with one. At first, I was hesitant to buy this figure because of all the reviews I read of about him being hard to transform and pieces braking off but I had to snatch one of these guys up! To me, the price was a bit up there but once I got it......money well spent. As advertised, Megatron came very well packed thanks to TFsource.
Just like a 1st addition comic book, care has to be taken when handling this guy when transforming this guy. I recommend watching as many of the You Tube videos on him as you can before you transform him so you don't unmistakingly break him. Takara Tomy did a great job with this figures but transforming this guy the first time around requires patiences....a lot of it! I watched the Transformers the movie (cartoon version) hundreds of times and it was great to see that Megatron came with gun he used to take Optimus Prime down (thanks Hot Rod) and the long Mace he used to battle Prime with on so many occasions. So I definitely recommend this figure to any transformer collector that would like to relive their childhood with Masterpiece Megatron.
""Peace through tyranny!""
A truly "masterpiece" in TF collection.
The transformation of this figure is prety tricky but easy to handle after the first transformation(be sure to check the instructions while you transorming him)
To the point Megatron comes in the clasic Masterpiece Black Box and includes
The Pistol Blaster that killed Optimus Prime in the Movie of the 80's
The Energy Dagger
Energy Mace(from the classic scene of the early episode of Transformers G1)
The robot mode is AWESOME with great detail,but at least for me is a litles bit fragile because of the skiny steleton of the legs and the very strong joints and here we got the 1st minus.
Ading the mace on him or the Fusson Cannon is great fun and ofcores reliving some classics scenes ;)
The Fusson Cannon is takeing the most of the weight toward the figre and that is a litle bit a problem when you want to keep him steady but is not that much of problem and it can be solved easely, the Cannon for me atleast is a litle biger then in orignal cartoon but is a matter that is over with, after a few seconds by witnesing the greatnes of Megatron!
Now the Gun Mode is based on the modified Walther P38, it is oversized ofcorse(This have to do with some law when it comes to toys guns but Im not sure), in this mode is hardly to bilieve that you see a Transformer and if you get the upgrade kit for him by Justitoys then you will have an perfect replica of G1 Megatron.
It gets 8,5 to 10(Minus 1 for skiny and frigile legs and 0.5 for oversize cannon)
Its a great figure and it will be perfect with the Masterpiece of G1 Optimus Prime
A great improuvment over the original toy and a "must have".
ALL HAIL THE EMPEROR OF DESTRUCTION!
I think the best word to describe this figure is "Elegant." The shine that it displays just gives it a feel of superiority. Takara nailed this one. A lot of people will say the figure breaks easily, seems flimsy...Well it's not. There are pieces that can be removed to help in transformation, the joints are stiff in places, but just require some forethought before just forcing it into position. This figure does get a dingyness to the chrome on his feet which is common with this figure (otherwise known as cosmic rust). Simply wiping with a micro fiber cloth every once in a while will keep it looking great. Overall this figure is perfect and is the only one that is the same size as MP-01-MP-04S.
A mint box generally has no noticeable flaws. This doesn't mean it is a C10 box, but that it doesn't have any significant damage to the box. It still may have wear to the window, and a small amount of wear to the box that is noticeable upon close inspection.
A C9 box is still considered very displayable and may have a kink, ding, minor fray to an edge, etc. The box is still case fresh and unopened with factory sealed tape on both sides.
