What can I say about this figure? It is beyond awesome. Reason I gave it four stars is because of the loose shoulder joints. Though that does not bother as much because the company behind making this really great looking figure, has provided us with replacement joints which are not that hard to do.
The figure itself is almost as large as the original Masterpiece figure. Apollyon is very moveable. The expression on his face is dead on to what we see in the G1 cartoon series. I have no problem with that. The more it resembles the original cartoon, the better. Xtransbots have done a fantastic job with making Apollyon/Megatron. They know what they are doing in terms of making good quality figures.
The transformation can be a little frustrating but I have managed to transform him into gun mode without any problems. The handle is a little larger due to the thickness of his upper legs which is a vast improvement from the original masterpiece Megatron.
The figure itself feels like it is made of metal, which is a nice added touch to the feel of it. Another plus is his hands. They can be posed. The fingers are bendable as well as the thumbs. His accessories come with the weapon stock, and elongated barrel. A mace attached to a chain. The last stand energy sword, the pistol of betrayal, an asteroid wound and the sigma activation key. Not to mention his clone control helmet. Apollyon is considered to be the best masterpiece figure made by a third party company and is a definite addition to any growing Transformers collection. The likeness of the figure will be sure to remind collectors of the original G1 cartoon character collectors and fans alike have grown up watching and appreciate the workmanship made to Apollyon. For serious collectors only, Apollyon is a must have figure. You will not be disappointed with him.
