    No, I'm afraid not. The TFs in the film don't look anything like traditional TFs, judging by the concept art and toy prototypes that have been leaked. Optimus Prime is VAGUELY recognizable, and that's about it.

    As for this thing...*sigh*. I really don't want to have to fork over a C-note for an oversized handgun with scrawny legs, but I have feeling I'm going to, just to have someone to match up to MP-01. I'd rather he'd been a War Within-type tank, or even an Abrams, like that color sheet that was circulating a while back.

    I agree a War Within would have been a better choice for bulk. Hell they could have gotten more bulk if they just went with a more modern Gun like a 50 cal. Desert Eagle. But never the less he Still Looks great... My only real grip is that the scope is a little to large.

    According to reports the silencer part of the gun won't be included plus the tip of the barrel will be painted orange. I wonder which transformer will get the masterpiece treatment next. I would have said Bumblebee except for the fact that VW is so against their cars being represented in such a fashion. I personally think a good candidate would be Grimlock.

    Only the one from www.bigbadtoystore.com is going to have that. The standard version will not...

    Well, we all know that Hasbro is going to avoid doing a version of this.

    That being said, I hope the next Masterpiece is Soundwave along with his tapes.

    Man, he looks so badass. Let's hope for die-cast rather than too much plastic.

    So will he be all one color as depicted or will there be some sort of paint?

    He'll be painted most definitely. That is just the prototype...they all looked like that.

    I have no idea what you're talking about. Every version coming into the US must be painted. It's the law.

    Sorry bbts is the only one that is doing that...

    This a Takara/Tomy figure Japanese only toy, so it is up to the individual US saler if they want to get the modified one which is what bbts is doing... In which case this is an adult collector piece so most salers don't have to get the one with orange caps. Which may end up just being a sticker.

    If they don't do it, it'll get confiscated by customs.

    It more than likely be in robot mode in the box like MP-01...

    Yeah, I don't picture a customs guy opening the box, transforming Megs to his alt-mode and shouting, "WE'VE GOT A REALISTIC RENDITION OF A LETHAL WEAPON HERE FOLKS!!"

    That would seem unlikely. Megatron will probably come in gun form much like Starscream came in his jet mode.

    That is extremely unlikely that they will have him in his alt mode, just because of what it is...

    You're basing this on the fact that Starscream came in alt-mode? That's flawed logic. If you use your common sense then you'd realize that it would hurt Takara to package the toys in gun mode because a lot of their sales will come from the US. Do you honestly think they don't know its going to be a customs hell for us to import a realistic looking weapon? So, logically, don't you think they'll realize this and put a bunch of pictures of him in robot mode...therefore if customs does open the package they'll see a robot instead of a realistic looking toy gun?

    I didn't think Takara had it in them to do a gun mode of Megatron and I am really grateful that they are. Let's hope for the shoulder attachment and silencer.
