I just finished assembling my first of these models last night: Autobot Megatron. I'm pretty happy with him. Not quite as nice as the Kotobukiya Mega Man X figures that have been my other recent model experiences, but he's also bigger and $20 cheaper, so I set my expectations accordingly. I've got Rodimus on order, and I'm more interested in some of the others now too.

All this talk of Windblade and Arcee kits got me thinking I was behind on my Furai Kits So I ordered and got Skywarp and (Vanilla) Drift in the mail today.
Drift seems to be a very involved build, I'm sort of itchin' to get into him. And there's something so satisfying about doing the seeker build that I enjoy doing every time so I don't even mind that this is my 3rd time doing it.
One thing I keep going back and fourth on is "Should I get the Decepticon IDW Megatron kit?" I love my autobot one, and although I like to pose him with my cons I don't want to Swap out his autobot symbol as Autobot Megatron is one of my favorite characters ever. Still its kindof Pricy to get Dedicated nearly identical Megatron with a different face and chest sticker.,

That particular design is 100% the MtMtE/LL Autobot Megatron for me. Even acknowledging it's just a visual redesign to his RiD/Dark Cybertron body, putting a Decepticon sticker on him just doesn't feel right.
I guess I could maybe see using the Decepticon kit as a fill in if I really felt a need to have a Decepticon Megatron kit on my shelf, but my hope is that they'll eventually do a new design that meshes better with the Seekers, their first Optimus, etc. That would then by my Furai Decepticon Megatron. In the absence of that, I just don't think the IDW Decepticon kit would really scratch that itch for me even if I had it.
