I never did get around to buying a release of Masterpiece Megatron, although it's always been something I've thought about. I never had the original Megatron toy, and it's always held a bit of mystique for me, so I'm usually interested in a Megatron that's G1 influenced. This new leader class Megatron definitely hits the right notes design-wise, in robot mode. The only things I don't really like about robot mode are the big backpack kibble, and that the arm with the cannon on it can't bend at the elbow because the cannon gets in the way.
Of course, this Megatron turns into a tank rather than a handgun, but I'm okay with that. It's a pretty cool looking silvery tank, and if I didn't know any better, I'd find it a perfectly fitting alt mode. The coolest thing about tank mode is that the treads are rubber and can actually roll.
