Hegemon has been my stand in since he came out. SSL's could dethrone him though depending on how he turns out.

Face Palm, This has a release date of Summer 2014. These newer pics are still early renders.

With Two to Three months left in the Summer. Why are they still doing all of this early renders teasing pics. Surely a few test shots toys exist by now. How about at least revealing how many Centimeters tall this toy is in bot mode.

Those renders actually look pretty nice.

I may have acted a bit prematurely in preordering the second run of Hegemon...

Over at the TFW board, Bold Forms is stating this is a Tripple changer toy. It has a robot, Gun and Tank mode.

I'm Intrigued, If the price is under $140 and the scale is leader, I'll be buying it.

Well its actually very Hasbroish. Not my cup of tea, but im sure the neo movement will enjoy it. Ill stick with Hegemon. Im more interested in a accurate G2 megatron. Even if they paint this up in green or blue, it wouldnt really work for me.

I like it! In my opinion, Megatron should be a tank- G1 Megs turning into a handgun is one of the stupid bits of G1 that really should be forgotten, along with Blast Off turning into a space shuttle and B.O.T existing at all. Even the Masterpiece crew couldn't make Megatron work as a gun for crying out loud.

Hopefully this turns out nice.

I hope so too. I still like Classics Prime and find Hegemon too large. So, if this were voyager, it'd be just about right.

Good, thought it was just me, yeah Im'm still happy with my Classics Prime, and since Hegemon is crazy expencsive these days it would be nice to have an alternative if the price suits.

Did a little jiggery pokery on an app on my phone and managed to pull a load more detail out of those teasers.

Looks like the tank mode has twin turrets, finding it difficult to see where everying goes to form that gun mode, must be a pretty involved transformation.

V-Voyager class means I won't be buying this.

Making so many 3rd party Megatron toys voyager size this year is overly repetitive, redundant and clearly in competition with HasTak.

I thought the whole purpose of these 3rd party companies was to offer fans stuff HasTak was not willing to create. In this case, HasTak has not created a Leader scale Megatron toy since ROTF in 2009. So their is clearly a need for leader scale new megatron toys.

Please, name another Voyager-sized Megatron toy that's being made this year...

Movie? Nope.
Generations? Nope.
Hegemon Re-issue? Nope.

Maybe that 16-Bit Megatron is voyager-sized? But it's a game console, not a G1-esque alt-mode, really.

I would consider replacing my Hegemon reissue preorder with this if we get some renders/reveals soon, and the figure is confirmed as voyager-sized. That would be awesome.

I said 3rd party Voyager scale Megatron toys being released this year. such as Gladius, Mega steel Megatron and SSL Vetron.

As far as new sculpts Hastak Voyager scaled megatron toys being released from 2009 to 20014. Voyagers Megatrons toys out number the Leader scale Megatron toys from 2009 to 2014. The last new sculpt Megatron toy Hasbro released was ROTF Megatron So there is a definate fans need for more leader scale Megatron toys. Since fans have not received a leader scale new sculpt Megatron toy in over Five years.

Come to think of it, do we know that any of those other 3rd Party Megatrons will be released in 2014? Do we even know this one is? Hmmm... :-?

For the record, I don't disagree that we need a new Leader Megatron - but we will be getting one from Hasbro, apparently, under the Generations line. It should be right up your alley.

One of the Gladius pics says, Summer 2014. The SSL Vetron pic says coming soon. Mega steel Megatron has no release date.

Hoping Botcon next week has Hasbro revealing pics or the toy of 30th Leader scale Megatron. If not hoping SDCC or NYCC reveals 30th Megatron.

SSL Vetron hasn't yet revealed the toy scale yet. I'm just jumping the gun and assuming it's Voyager scale. Due to Gladius and Mega Steel Megatron both being Voyager scaled toys.

V , is not Voyager scale. This has been officially debunked by Boldforms at TFCon this weekend. http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transform ... on-10.html

BF is listing the robot mode as 22 CM tall, Which converts to 8.7 inches. 8.7 is almost Leader scale.

Suspect the V- Voyager scale listing being wrong here. Might means other toys recently that uses V as Voyager might be wrong and bigger. Perhaps that V 3rd party Astrotrain, V 3rd party Blitzwing and a few of those 3rd party V Megatron are actually Ultra or Leader scaled toys instead.

Suspect the V- Voyager class mistake might be a language barrier confusion between overseas companies that don't speak english that well or know HasTak's TF size class qualifications.
