So I finally grabbed IDW Megatron. First off, I must have lucked out as all joints seem to be tight and everything fits where it is intended to for the most part (have had a bad track record as of late)
Looking at the figure with his lavender secondary color and purple underoos, It occored to me that this little guy is not Megatron at all, but rather the character that we knew in Beast wars who took that name, to me at least.
Sure this mode is seen in the comics, but for my purposes, the size, varying color scheme and head sculpt are completly justified by this idea. That, and we already know very well where Waspinator and Rattrap are, among others, and the color scheme does not neccissarily match what is on the printed page.
SO I ask you folks, do you ever do this? If so, what sort of re-purposing have you done with figures?
