I don't know what to do... if going DLX or Premium Scale.

Is Megatron from ROTF going to be DLX or premium?

Nice thanks for the heads up snoopy!
Not sure if you ordered it yet or not but it's still cheaper to buy the figure from BBTS than Sideshow. Sideshows shipping cost for this figure completely negates the discount that the REWIND had on this. They're charging close to $40 in shipping for it. Go with BBTS if you haven't already. That's what I did. Discounted at $480 and only having to pay $4 shipping + tax.

It sold out at BBTS last week. I was going to order it on Friday on BBTS when it was still showing as pre-order and compared the price difference you laid out. I decided to wait to order it Saturday morning and it was listed as sold out so I ended up ordering Saturday through Sideshow and used some reward points.

I took pics from the Threezero booth - Seoul Popcon. It's like Comic Con here.

I received mine a few days ago. It’s absolutely incredible. It’s seriously one of my favorite collectibles I own now, and I’ve become a rather picky bastard lately lol. Unfortunately, like @darthviper107 I’m having issues with the LEDs, except in my scenario it’s a problem with his gun as It doesn’t seem to want to work at all. Hopefully SS can sort it out. I’m hoping these are rather isolated cases as it really sucks to have issues on such an expensive and “premium” figure. It definitely takes away from the overall experience.

The gun is probably an easy replacement, they sent me the head by itself to replace mine. Check with the batteries and make sure they're going in correctly, the diagram for the direction the batteries go in for the gun I think is opposite of what it should be, and at least on mine you need to get the batteries in just the right position for it to work.

Thanks for the heads up about the instructions, I finally saw that they made a mistake when trying to install them the way they referred to lol. Hopefully they’ll send a replacement.

Did anyone have issues trying to get the batteries installed in the Premium Prime head or have any pointers? I got batteries and was trying to install them and they pushed the tab on the back side of the head down and wouldn't keep pressure on the batteries. I bent the tab back up but it felt like the tab was going to fall off. Sideshow sent a replacement head but the batteries still seem to large for the way the tab is formed and I dont' want to ruin this head.

Picture is of the bent tab in the old head.

Not trying to sound like a smart ass but are you sure you’re using the correct batteries? They should fit pretty snug but not to the point where it feels like you’re breaking the metal or plastic. They shouldn’t be bending the metal tab down they go in front of it.

Yeah, they are the right ones. They fit in the gun just fine. I did notice the positive tab in the gun is at an angle where the tab in the head is straight out. Never had an issue with installing any of the DLX figure batteries. 🤷‍♂️
