Hiya, buddy. Leonography, huh?

Btw, I wonder what did the first guy think when they decide Megatron will be a gun... I mean, chopper is good, Cybertron battleship is also good... a gun? Come on...

Soundwave transform to a mini-compo? I think only Decepticon does that scaling thingy.

Hi LEon,

I love your toy photos as always! This TFA Leader Class Megatron does look more 'kid friendly', compared to his movie counterpart :P

I got a TFA Voyager Megatron together with TFA Voyager Optimus Prime at a recent sale. They both make a great pair when displayed together :)
