I'll give you $20 for it, no way would I spend more then $30 though, I paid that for the Nightbird version and she fell apart after I took her out of the box

Lmao this is sad, but if I was going to sell it, I couldn't in good conscience take that much money for it. It arrived in pieces (both seats popped out before I even cut the tape, and after I got it out I realized the wheels had come off too) I did manage to get it back in working order, however I had to glue so much of it to make it stay in one piece that it is now 70% super-glue (yet still more poseable than fresh out of the box, barely) so you see, you offered way too much! Lol, it is the the Pink Arcee version, I'm waiting to get the Delicate Warrior I ordered off TFSource before deciding what to do with Valkyrie, I bundled Delicate Warrior with Hench and UFO so I should see them next month.

Well definitely let me know how Delicate Warrior is, I'm not one for spending on junk that falls apart like Impossible Toys crap. I will definitely not be buying their product again.

I saw a comparison review between Delicate Warrior and Valkyrie on Youtube, and from the review I could tell that Delicate Warrior from Igear was hands down a 100% improvement over the Impossible Toys Valkyrie, I just wish I had seen that review rather than jump on Valkyrie just because it was available. Delicate Warrior is bigger and more in scale with Classics deluxes, and has die-cast parts which the reviewer believes were added more for stability over aesthetics, but I will let you know my take on it once it arrives. Personally I want to have two Arcee's and find a way to turn that Impossible Toys exo suit Daniel figure into a headmaster for one of them.

Thanks, I would love to see Daniel transform into Arcee's head. And definiely let me know if MGT-01 Delicate Warrior is worth the money.

I will reserve judgement for when a real prototype is released. I say bring on all the 3rd party megatrons....how can it be bad to have choices? My only complaint with them all is that if the bot mode looks good, the gun mode is :wtf and if the gun mode is good, then the bot mode is meh....I for one think an update to Megatron himself to a new model of gun would be awesome. Still waiting for someone to make a Walter P99 with silencer.....to me if they did it right would rock....it is actually a custom figure on my list of a bizallion other custom ideas i have.....when I have the free time to start working on them...maybe I'll be able to produce one....:D

Dear god, I love Megatron as much as the next guy, but enough is enough. Besides, DOTM should have taught us:

 

TRUKK NOT GUN!!!

 

It's the only way.

 

Personally,I don't see the harm in various 3rd party TF companies getting over obsessed & making five plus not-megatron toys. clearly no one has to buy them all. the more selection,the better choices buyers have to get the one they like.

 

IMHO,Hasbro/Takara have been seriously ignoring the 1984 megatron toy for updated homages. while I own the MP-05 Megatron,I think it's a awful homage toy. the nerf gun classics megatron is not that great either.

 

I love having five plus different 3rd party not/megatron's toys to chose from. I'm only gonna buy one of them & thus far it'll be the one pictured in this thread called darknes emperor.

 

9" eh? So does that put him at the same height as MP-10 or not? I'll wait to see what the proto pics look like, hopefully by then Takara will have put out a new and improved MP Megs to match up against MP-10, ofcourse if anyone does put out an amazing looking G1 Megatron that's in scale with MP-10 I may start feeling some slight buyers remorse about Hegemon...

 

MP-09 Rodmus Prime is exactly 9 & 1/2 inches in robot mode from head to toe,I measured him a while back.

 

While I don't yet own MP-10 Convoy,he seems a bit smaller in height than MP-09 Rodimus prime in those comparisions pics floating around on-line. my Guess is MP-10 Convoy is around 9 & 1/4 inches tall.

 

Gonna have to agree to disagree here on a couple of points:

 

1)It's not so much that everyone is wanting to hop on the Megs bandwagon. It's that these companies are producing, essentially, the same bloody toy, the same G1 Megs that turns into the same pistol over and over and over again. Megs has changed faces, bodies and alt modes so often in the TF mythos--sometimes several times within the same continuity--that a number of homages to the character could be reproduced without exhausting his G1 likeness, which brings me to:

 

2) MP-05 was and is a marvel of toy engineering. That poor mold has to do more than any other TF figure I've ever seen to get from A to B. That's because Takara did not cheat, and the translation is quite literal.Is it my favorite MP figure? No. That's the Rod Convoy figure that no one seems to like. But it is by far the most honest and articulated and detailed approximation of what G1 Megatron is. And I, for one, very much appreciate that. I don't believe that any company outside of Takara can produce a better G1 Megs without having to resort heavily on cheating of some fashion.

Well, I just ordered Hegemon, so I've made my choice, unless this new figure gets such good reviews that I have to get him to serve as my MP Megatron. Depending of course, on whether the new MP Prime is awesome enough to deserve an appropriate nemesis.

From everything I've seen on MP-10 he does, the Hasbro release looks promising, well have to see how the finished paint apps look to properly judge though

I'm sure he will be great, as as long as Hasbro keeps him like his Takara counterpart. My only worry is the smokestacks

Amen to that, that is the number one thing that worries me about the Hasbro version....

 

On another note I just checked and my Hegemon is in stock, now I just have to wait another week and a half for my Rage Of Hercules kit to come in and then my whole order of Hegemon, CHMS Punch/Counterpunch, and Rage of Hercules can be shipped out :-)

I'm just waiting for Captured Prey to get their stock in so I can get my Hegemon also

I'm gonna wait and see more pics before I decide. I'm also kinda hoping we get a new MP Megatron I can just import

 

Though I read somewhere US gun laws prohibit importing any such toy. i dont want customs to swipe it and then be $150+ in the hole....
