The transformation is crazy, but it all makes sense pretty quickly after the first time and it's fairly intuitive. There's only a few pegs you got to make sure you fold away.

Anyways, Sunstreaker finally shipped which was the longest delay between placing an order and having it shipped out from hlj ive encountered, and Megatron arrived.
Megatron is basically perfect. I had watched and read as much as I could so I was expecting to lose some paint in the transformation. But as it turned out, my hands got more scraped and hurt than he did. That first time transforming to gun mode is like some sort of rite of passage. The second and third and subsequent times it cools off and he is just a total joy.
I also recieved Ironhide for xmas and he is charming for a bunch of different reasons. Mainly the smooth transformation and that cherry vanette mode is perfect. He loses points for not having a smiling face and his thumbs scare the crap out of me when Im trying to put weapons in his hands. Im fighting myself to not get ratchet asap.

Unreleased Masterpiece MP-34 Cheetor Coin?
The only other coin unreleased by Hasbro Asia was for Exhaust, but that had to do with his entire release being cancelled by Hasbro Asia (with the stock going to TakaraTomy for distribution in Japan after the initial release).

Im happy to say the backpack is way less offensive in person.
Transformation is a total joy.
Shame about the fake chest, but I picked up an Omnigonix Spinout for dirt cheap to fill that void.
Personally, I didn't enjoy the transformation much myself. Granted, I guess much of this comes down to the backpack transformation, as it took me far too long to figure out that his backpack instructions were intended to start from proper Lamborghini mode. Need to figure out how to transform him back, but that's on my to-do list.
And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.

The rotation joint on the backpack made a horrible snapping noise and now theres a crack running right down the middle of it. It still transforms fine and isnt falling apart. The joint even rotates easier now , but its scared the hell out of me.

MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rod's coin: https://www.facebook...?type=3
For reference, here is MP-28's.
Looks like MP-40's some how folds out to be Hot Rod in car mode with Firebolt some how attached (or some squished or cropped version of that).
