Review: DOTM Megatron Figure


Blitz-Wing

Recommended Posts

Hey Blitz, I wasn't sure if you knew, but Megatrons tanker trailer does in fact pivot. There's a mechanism inside the legs where as soon as you pop out the wheels on his thighs, the whole back section has the ability to turn :D

I'll have to try again. I thought it looked like it could pivot, but I didn't want to force it

I was about to ask if anyone noticed that one of the windows was popping out, but then I figured out that it just wasn't painted...

No there IS a windshield protruding out about 1/16" from the cab whilst the other one is receded as it should be

Can't figure why that windshield section is like that. Pretty sure the cyberverse version has it too.

 

I need a Leader version, this one is great but tiny, too small to pose with Voy Optimus IMO. Aren't we getting a Deluxe Optimus Prime? That should scale well.

If you look closely at an industrial tooled semi, the driver's side window is usually offset closer to the hood than the passenger's side. I can't say why that is, but I would imagine it offers a better field of vision for the driver.

At first I was like did I pop it out. I had to look at the box art to figure out that that is how it is supposed to be. It just wasn't painted.

 

Anyways, I love this figure! No kibble, great articulation and both modes are awesome. The scarred face makes him not look like Megatron to me. My only issue with it is the feet not connecting to well.

My guess is it because it has been re-enforced with Bulletproof glass. If there was a real driver in the truck and from the way the truck looks [ Mad Max style ] it would make sense so the driver would be protected when driving head-on into a gunfight? :shrug

1) yes, the mech tech weapon locks in place. just, yes it does. its not even hard to figure out.

 

2) the hood folds in under the cape for storage in vehicle mode.

 

no offense, but i've come to expect more from these reviews, which seem more concerned with rating the figure in as many ways as possible, using as many different and brightly colored graphics as possible. again, no offense. just a bit of criticism.

The graphics and colors aren't any attempt to 'brighten' the review. I'm just trying to be more concise with the ratings. This change has taught me one thing: I will never make people happy with any type of rating system :shrug
