Transformers Kubianbao Tank Deformation (3rd Party Leader Class Megatron with DX9 AL-01 upgrade Parts)
Megatron is a bootleg of the Leader Class Megatron. He comes with diecast chest and front waist. He’s missing a Decepticon symbol on his chest though, nothing Reprolabels can’t fix.
This set also comes with bootlegged add on parts from the DX9 AL-01 set. The articulated finger hands from the AL-01 set come pre-equipped. The default Megaton hands are included with the package. Swapping the hands requires disassembling the forearms.
The add-on parts really make a difference.
Articulated hands, with more joints for the index finger for “pointing” poses.
Megatron also comes with the rifle from the original set.
Likewise, just like with the original, the rifle can be disassembled into 2 pistols.
As a bonus, KBB also included the Armada Megatron head, in G1 Megatron colors.
His backpack cannon can be held on as a weapon as well.
Sadly, in tank mode, only the extra cannon can be used. The other parts have no place on Megatron, plus, you will have to remove the leg attachments to transform him. So it’s not a perfect add-on per se.
“Peace through tyranny!”
Overall, not bad, it’s cheaper than the SRP of the original Leader Class Megatron. They more or less copied the original figure down to the last detail and added new accessories. The new DX9 add-ons do make him look way better than the default setting. The new diecast parts also make it extra sweet.
But personally I think I prefer the XToys XT008 add on for Megatron. The pants just seem better than what they look like here. But as far as this bootleg set goes, it certainly did not disappoint.
“Their defenses are broken, let the slaughter begin!”
