Give me your face boy!
Legends class Megatron from the RotF line. So no, it’s not from the universally underwhelming Legends toys of the first movie. Now onto the toy itself.
Megatron’s a surprisingly good toy. I can understand why people would be all into the whole Legends thing. I mean, the original releases for this size class were sorely lacking, but they’ve gotten progressively better these days. And Megatron here is a pretty good example of a good Legends toy.
Robot mode looks… erm, well, he looks relatively show accurate? The head definitely has a Black Arachnia thing going for me, but otherwise, the body is erm… good… I’m sorry, but let’s face it, the actual movie design for Megs is pretty lacking. This Legends toy is good, given what it has to work with.
Now vehicle mode, is friggin’ excellent. It’s definitely the strong point of this toy, and one of the few vehicle modes that play around with more than the robot mode. The articulation is impressive and for an alt-mode, it’s actually MORE articulated than the larger versions. In the sense that the entire turret can point upwards, and it actually hides the head way better than the larger versions of RotF Megatron.
Also, the silver paint apps are better shown off in this mode as well.
Fanmoding is also good, with a nice platform mode and as can be seen, he makes a spiffy backpack for your Yuuzhan Vong warriors.
I’d give this guy a thumb’s up. Small and affordable, he’s got the bonus of also being good for what he is. A piece for both the kiddies, as well as for the older collector who wants something to fiddle with.
Pros: Surprisingly detailed, especially in tank mode. Decently articulated. Overall fun to fiddle with.
Cons: Nothing significant.
