Another pleasant surprise in the classics line was Megatron. I had low expectations about him because of the "gun blaster" mode but he is the bomb in every possible way! Trust me, try him out. You'll be glad you did.
Of course any of the seekers from the classics line are simply the best representation of them ever made IMO. Just superb.
With classics 2.0 on the horizon, Transformers fans have a lot to look forward to I think.

one complaint

I only have one minor complaint for this figure, and it holds true for most of the Classics figures: it's just SCREAMING for a big, red Autobot symbol on his shoulder. They fixed this on the Ultra Magnus repaint. I'd give this figure a 9.9 out of 10, and that missing Autobot symbol is the only thing that kept it from being PERFECT. Other than that, I LOVE this toy, I'd put it at #2 behind Jetfire and tied with Mirage.

Classics OP opinion

This is one of my favorites of the Classics line! I thought that the smokestack gun was really cool looking, but that the 'ion cannon' had a nice big-ass shotgun look to it. I thought the combo weapon on the back was a good idea, but a bit awkward. My only complaint mirrors Atom's review of him- the sides of the cab are kinda awkward on the forearms like that, but that is really the only flaw I can find in the design. The colors are great, the transformation is fun, and it is definitely an honorable homage to the G1 character.

But I also agree with Heavyarms here that OP is a very close 2nd behind Classics Mirage. While I wasn't as gaga over the Autobot symbol like he was for Ultra Magnus, I thought that the white-&-blue repaint didn't get quite as much attention to detail when they chose the paint apps, but was glad that he was released nonetheless. Not the colors- mind you, I like those as well- but rather the level of detail (stripes, panels, etc.) aren't as well thought-out as OP's.
