"Looks this great and actually transforms!? Wow."

I was sold on this as soon as I saw the colored pictures but it is even nicer having it in hand. The figure is sized perfectly with all of my MP Transformers and from every angle it looks so great it's almost hard to believe it can transform into a pretty nice (oversized) gun mode too. To go with that, Despotron is extremely well articulated so you can pose him in so many ways with amazing stability he puts a lot of other non-transforming figures that are known for extreme articulation to shame, doing so with almost all joints looking very natural in any pose.
He also has 3 extra faces all with great expressions that fit the character really well, and a ball and chain spiked mace.
I do wish he had the extra sniper parts to really make gun mode look even better but the figure does what it should do so well overall I can look past that.
Transformation as you would expect is somewhat complex, but easier than any other offering of this character at this scale I know of and it is actually pretty fun and well thought out.
I am very happy with this purchase.

"They got him right this time"

he has great ratchet joints in the shoulders and legs; the weight is proportioned well and the detail is just looking at him you cant tell but not one part of him is identical...a lot of parts are specifically designed for a involved but fun transformation; it sucks he does not come with the p38 pistol accessories and the hammer portion in the back of the leg is difficult to get in and out this is the only reason I gave him 4 out of 5. I guess we'll see an upgrade kit coming soon! The robot mode is solid as hell and the pistol mode is solid too.

""Their defenses are broken. Let the slaughter begin!!" - Megatron"

I was stoked when Despotron arrived. Maketoys designed him pretty accurately to animation in robot mode. Joints are tight. Took me almost an hour to transform him to gun mode. Only issues not all of the tabs on the gun handle panels line up to their slots. The left side doesn't line up all the way. Sticks out a bit. Gripping the handle the panels aren't tightly secured. Still a great version of Megatron in robot mode with three changeable faces, spiked mace and a long target scope fusion cannon. Hope there's an add-on kit.

"Years In The Making!"

Maketoys.... You actually got it right!
For years I've been looking going thru multiple reviews looking and waiting for the correct version of Megatron and Maketoys Despotron is it... The details on this guy are amazing and I love the extra 3 facial expressions... The joints are extra tight and the posses are very strong...Plus I really appreciate the extra grip on the feet. the oversize gunmode reminds me of holding the G1 Hasbro Megatron as a kid... I simply love it! And, the transformation is actually nice on this guy.... the pieces flow very smoothly at least on mines.... Simply to say I'm beyond pleased and Maketoys version was definitely worth the wait... If you haven't gotten this guy... you are truly missing out!

"The new definitive MP Megatron?"

Hmm, no. It doesn't blow away X-Transbots Apollyon in every aspect, considering that came out a year before. But this one is still an excellent figure on its own. Transformation is completely different which I appreciate. I now have two amazing MP Megatrons on my display. ... and a third slot for Takara's soon.

"Good Design, Stunning Shape"

Can be a masterpiece of toy in year, but struggle a little bit during the transform. It will be great if can get LED cannon instead of original one.

"Impressive Transformation"

Interesting and clever transformation, Lots better than Apollyon.
My only gripe, is Robot mode pistol's barrel behind his back is kinda cheesy and loose. Needed a peg in the back to hold firmly in place.
Otherwise, its a good beefy robot and (oversize pistol).

"Blocky bot, oversized alt-mode."

Despotron has a fun, complicated (50 step) transformation sequence. Good luck unstowing his head without some kind of tool for leverage though.

Robot mode is quite a bit blockier than I anticipated, even after having watched a number of review, but this doesn't create any obsticlea to articulation.

Alt mode is comically oversized. I am not a small person, but I can scarcely reach the trigger and I'm a good inch shy of the trigger guard.

Also of some importance, while this figure does come packaged with an orange plug inserted into the barrel, it is not at all affixed and can be pulled right out.

The packaging gives no indication that the alt mode is a firearm look alike, but if you're concerned about whether you order complies with federal regulations about that type of thing, you may want to keep ithat in mind.

"I'd give 8 outta 5"

I like the mp36, but I'm very satisfied with my current comic inspired megs done by pat lee/guido.

"Incredible take on a great nemesis"

I was waiting for the arrival of mp36 and wasn't impressed by it's price point and fugly back side.i like dx9 mightron but from the waist up only,apollyon was a great first attempt but has several qc I went with maketoys despotron and boy am I happy.i wasnt sure if I would like the head sculpt from numerous pics but this guy in person is just awesome,the light piping make the eyes glow a menacing red and really looks good.the figure is really solid,awesome engineering and has a nice weight to to mp 10 prime they look like they belong together fighting battles on cybertron.highly recommended if your on the fence like I will be extremely happy with this guy.

"Loose Shoulders "

This is such a great alternative to MP36 Megatron. He is of similar size and looks very similar. All i need now is a decepticon decal to put on his chest and he won't look out of place along side my MP Starscream and Soundwave.

However his shoulder joints are very very loose. he can't hold his arm up at all when holding his canon, and only just barely with out it. If you twist his arm a certain way he can hold it up, but he cant do anything like a power fist.

Aside from this still an amazing figure.

"Vote for Megatron"

I just got him on sale. I have the X-Transbots Apollyon, which was my second MP Megatron next to the first Takara version. I liked Apollyon, but it wasn’t perfect. The Maketoys version is better. The legs look cleaner, and the transformation is slightly better. The lower torso/hip area was problematic for me. I got it right eventually. He is kinda blocky looking, but I am happy with him, especially at the sale price. I miss having the silencer and the shoulder stock. For the price, compared to MP-36 Megatron, Maketoys is tough to beat. Megatron is a tough figure to do right. Despotron is not totally perfect, but I’m very satisfied. Get him now, a MP Megatron is gonna be VHTF at this cheap.

"All Hail Megatron "

This is a beast, There are few faults and this is a extremely well made figure

December 07, 2019


So,not new to the third party crowd but this is my first Maketoys figure and, woah! What a figure! Love the alternate faces and he is a bulky figure with plenty of articulation. In my experience with 3rd party figures there is usually something that stands out as a negative. The only thing I can hold aga6thos guy is how many moves it takes to transform him. But that being said,who cares? It goes to show how impressive the engineering that went into this guy. Get it!

"Solid form; transformation is enjoyable"

It transforms the way it's supposed to. It's not overly complicate but challenging enough that I enjoyed changing it from robot to gun mode. I love the silver color. It's solid in both modes. It's a good price and alternative to the official Hasbro/Takara MP.

"LOVE this version of Megs"

I ADORE this figure. It's about as good as you can hope for when it comes to a MP Megatron figure. It's solid in both bot and gun mode, and it's a joy to transform. I would absolutely recommend this figure, especially at a discounted price!
