"The best Megatron figure yet!"

Ever since this figure was first announced, I had pretty high hopes for it and it does not dissappoint at all! This figure has amazing cartoon accuracy, fantastic life-like articulation, great accessories and is now the definitive Megatron figure in my opinion. Thankfully my figure seems to not show the problems other people have pointed out, and it transforms without much difficulty. Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase and I finally have a G1-style Megatron for my collection

"Magnificent Megs!!"

Just received him today in the mail. And he's absolutely worth the money. A huge improvement overall of his previous design plus added extra features. I haven't even transformed him yet and I'm impressed and very pleased. Takara is killing me right now and I love it!!

Even better in hand than photos or video reviews!!
A must have!!
Please do not sleep on this release!

"G1 Cartoon accurate, but..."

I've had my hopes up for this guy ever since I preordered him, but I was somewhat dissapointed when mine came with an extremely annoying QC issue. Mine has no paint chipping, and doesn't feel fragile, but has an extremely loose swivel on the right arm. Making it a pain in the backside to pose. Overall, I'm happy with him, but that QC issue is unforgivable. I'll probably have to send my current one back and hope for one without this problem.

"great figure but!!!"

ok so I just receaived my megatron and he is amazing the detail and likeness to the cartoon is amazing best ever. However I don't recommend transforming him at all I only did it one time and paint rub all over him and his right shoulder the plastic piece broke off so now I cant get him to hold the arm up without it completely falling off. be careful I followed the instructions to the T and put little force on the body when transforming him and still he broke. for what I paid for him they should send me a replacement!

" Waited so long for a cartoon accurate megatron "

"Fantastic as a robot-mode display, not so great as an actual Transformer"

I bought this figure with the intent of getting an official cartoon-accurate, highly poseable, collector-quality Megatron, and MP-36 certainly succeeds at that (multitude of panel lines and weird kibble aside). The accessories are also a very nice touch, with alternate faces, weapons, gun-mode parts that can be used like in the original toy, and a few miscellaneous items. However, a major drawback to most people is this figure's issues with its transformation scheme, whether it be paint-chipping or pieces breaking off. With that said, I'm kind of nervous to attempt it, but that means I leave it in its fantastic robot mode, so I'm certainly not complaining.

"Awesome company."

I can't think TFSource enough,for not tampering with this piece and sending me an email on how to handle this figure. It is an awesome representation of old bucket head and i love it.

"yay"

he's the perfect figure. 9/10 (the silencer is trouble for me imo) The sounds the cannon makes are so cool--can't stop playing around with it!!

"Superb!"

I had to wait 33 years for a cartoon accurate Megatron like this and all I've got to say is that it was worth the wait! I haven't transformed him into his alternate mode because he looks too great in his robot mode to do so. I've seen plenty of transformation videos on YouTube and after seeing the paint scrapes, I decided to not transform him. If you have a G1 Megatron, keeping him in his alternate mode with all of his accessories attached, you'll get exactly what this Masterpiece Megatron would look like. With this all being said, I'd highly recommend picking up this Megatron. He's just great to look at and will be a fine addition to anyone's collection.

"Best, but not Perfect"

He is right out of the cartoon.
He might be a little ugly from the back but who poses their figures facing the wall anyways?
I haven't had any paint chipping or scuffs yet but I have heard others having the issues so be careful!

"shout out to Emgo316 and TFSource"

I highly recommend youtuber Emgo316 solution to deal with a certain step that would otherwise require scary brute force. (do not summon your inner hulk to transform your figure). And buy this figure from TFSource!

"Megatron Lives!"

So, this figure is getting a huge mix of hate and praise on the interwebs.

Lets be fair, the back is kibble ridden and is kind of distracting, but if back packs bother you then well, there you go. I just don't care any more now that I have him in hand.

From every other angle though this figure is amazing to look at. It is beautiful and the paint is glorious. Mine was perfect and had no chipping or blemishes. He is glorious to behold.

The articulation is amazing and the transformation is mind blowing. This is truly a feat of engineering. the legs, the thighs, the chest all are exquisite. the only lull I would say are the arms, but they aren't really that bad. The gun mode is panely and there is a trick to not scratching the barrel. Look for the video on this, trust me.

The accessories are great and I love that the gun butt doubles as a flight stand. I hope some one comes up with a patch for the fusion cannon though, I want Frank Welker's voice and his actual cannon blast sound from the 'toon. The battle damage parts are great fun and the articulated mace chain is a nice touch I didn't even know that I wanted. Hours of enjoyment here.

Beware though this is an expert level transformer. I had no issues with anything transforming him, but I was extremely careful with him. DO NOT Force anything and you will be fine. Watch the videos a couple times and try to memorize the transformation before you attempt it and that will probably also help, I did this and found it really helpful.

This is the one true Megatron. No others even come close. Get him, you wont regret it, if you do, then there is no pleasing you.

"Nice work"

Splendid work in bot mode, but the transforming is too complex(Not hard, but just complex, too many steps and pieces). Gun mode is ugly but exact size to hold in hand(for MP05, that is perfect looking but too big) Bot mode is so so so so excellent, can make almost every pose you see in G1 cartoon and tons of support parts make it more
interesting to play

"Simply epic"

Look, what ever reviews you might read complaining or anything else even close to a negative, just simply understand it's from people who will ALWAYS find issues with ANYTHING. I've read comments even on this site from several called reviews crying about as some call "all the kibble" on the BACK of the figure!? Really...wow..all I can say to "those" type of people...go make yet another appointment with your therapist and up your meds...

I have countless masterpieces items even have my orgininal TF units along with third parties... this example is IMO one of the Best all around designs and compleations via Takara in any aspect. 100% G cartoon to perfections. Extremely well made with solid feel and details. Extreamly Poseable. If you have issues transforming then that's really your issue not the item. If you scratch or damage the unit b cause you can't take your time or understand how to transform the unit..again, your issue..

Many version Ms of Megatron have come and gone, this is really a situation where the character has come off the screen. I am truly happy that I s with the collect coin. Well worth the price. You will regret not securing one while stock allows before having to settle from third party eBay sellers and versions with custom added orange plugs...if only other Takara Masterpieces were built to this standard and options...

"Cunning!"

Cunning. That's the one word I'd use to describe Takara Tomy's Transformers Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron. Cunning. Ever since I got my first Masterpiece MP-10 Optimus Prime - the perfect Optimus Prime toy to represent the perfect Generation 1 Optimus Prime - I always knew that he can't stand alone. He needed Megatron to complement him. I waited awhile before biting the bullet because MP-36 is quite a bit more expensive than MP-10. Now I know why.

In robot mode, Megatron looks cunning. He is highly pose-able, and truly truly looks like the original G1 Megatron from the cartoon, I immediately fell in love with him. He's got heft and he's so flexible. His face oozes the personality of the Decepticon leader, and just looks... adorably cunning! Changeable face plates give Megatron even more expressions. His body is truly detailed and really resembles the G1 Megatron I knew and loved.

What makes MP-36 most cunning? His transformation to a gun! Talk about cunning... no I'd say it's almost wicked. Like Megatron himself. The transformation to a gun is no mean feat, and it's not for the faint-hearted. This is an expensive professional toy, so I read all about potential scuff marks, stuck gun nozzle, potential breakage, etc. Transformation from robot to gun mode is really complex, so to be honest, the paper instructions are totally useless to me. For that, I followed Youtube video which was thoroughly helpful - it still took me about 45 mins plus to transform Megatron into his gun, but what an accomplishment I felt when I managed to finally do it! Whatever you do, don't force anything! I did have a very very (near invisible) minor scuff mark due to transformation, but to be honest, I treat the Masterpieces as toys and I want to transform them now and then, so I really don't mind some scuffs - call it Megatron's "battle scars"! I didn't buy these superbly crafted toys just to be displayed!

The gun feels so appropriate to my hands and again, the heft makes it feel... expensive. The accessories are extremely well engineered too. The arm bit of the gun could be used as stand to either suspend Megatron, or in my case, I suspend the Gun! The only part that I think is actually flawed is the long barrel - the front black bit that connects to the nozzle. This is well documented - you do NOT want to push this thing right through or it may cause scratches and may not be easily removed. So I only lightly nudge it enough to stay, but I wouldn't risk forcing it on a toy that's hundreds of dollars.

Now, my MP-36 Megatron sits alongside my treasured MP-10 Optimus Prime. They belong to each other. They look good with each other, doesn't matter if it's truck vs gun or robot vs robot. They just look good together! Yes, so all in all, MP-36 is simply stunning. And like Megatron himself, definitely, categorically cunning. Highly recommended for Transformers G1 fans!

"Damn"

A lot of people in my office recognize the figure, and none of them believe me that it transforms! With the new MP Optimus Prime coming out next year, I feel like Megatron is going to sell out quick. Get it while you can. The level of detail is insane.

"About as good as it can get"

If you are a fan of Megatron, G1 or otherwise, this figure is a fantastic option. To preface, the accessories that Megatron comes with are great. Its hard for me to think of anything more that could come with him that I'd need. All of the accessories are nicely sculpted and detailed. The Key to Vector Sigma being Die-cast was a nice touch. Now, the figure is fantastic. He can hold a pose like no other, and he looks fantastic doing it. Proportions are great as well. Not too bulky and not too lean. I particularly like how the legs are proportioned with the torso. Even though he is roughly the same height as Mp-10, he just has a presence that makes him seem bigger. That's how Megatron should be in my book. The transformation is infamously complex, but that doesn't mean it's complicated. All the tolerances are perfect and once you get him into gun mode, he looks perfect. To get him there, I would highly recommend watching TheLazyEyebrowReviewer's video on his transformation, as it covers in detail the ins and outs of the transformation. Other than the price, and difficult transformation, I really can't think of any real flaws in this figures design. If you are a fan of Megatron, and don't mind the price, this figure is truly worth it.

Mint Box Description

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.

C9 Box Description

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.
