Armada Super Prime? Energon Super Prime? He's has elements from both. (Just not the GOOD elements!)

I'll wait for clearer pics myself. :grin:

I bleeding love the new Optimus look. Back to the simple transformation, bulky limbs. And great to see that they'll be very big.

Good times in the future. Now I still hope they make a voyager FOC Optimus / Megatron.

Hey, we just met these figures,
so call me crazy,
but let's see more pics
before we judge them, maybe?

Soooooo, it never ceases to amaze me....In these days and times of 5+ megapixel cameras on phones we still get blurry pictures like these. I appreciate the news and heads-up, but come on, if we are going to post pics, can we at least make sure they are QUALITY ones??

I am willing to accept blurry pics of Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster but stationary toys??

It probably wouldn't have had Galvatron anyway. Megatron was going to turn into a triple changer in the fourth season.

Besides, I didn't want Animated Megatron turning into a psychopathic nutcase like G1 Galvatron, if that would've been the case at all. :SICK:

With a Beast Machines inspired head. Damn, I wish there was a fourth season. It might have arisen my interest in the show. :-(

But I digress.


----------------------------------------------


The other reason Megatron's probably not getting another toy for Beast Hunters is that, aside from not changing his model, the line already has a main bad guy to fill his shoes; Predaking. That's their money-making antagonist. They don't need Megatron.

Doesn't the currrent instruction book story mention Megatron's demise anyway?
Maybe that's also the reason for not having another figure.

Could someone please remind me of when the US Toy Fair is happening? Do we usually get pictures for that?

Yeah, Megatron "died" in the sixth chapter. Then again, we don't know what kind of impact, if any, it will have on the third season. It could've been like you said; a reason not to give Megatron a new toy. ;)

Or, a reason to resurrect him in a new (beast/dragon) form?

Sadly, death is death in TF: Prime. when they kill a character, there are no resurrections (only the occasional zombifications). ;)

Granted it's not clear if this applies to the show or not...


So Lazerbeak is the Joker? :lol: If Meg's is killed in the show, I hope it's more interesting than that, like in a big, epic battle scene for instance. I don't want to see a DOTM-like death for Megatron ever again!

That is the Beast Hunters Voyager Prime. It looks like they gave him different weapons and he probably gets a trailer that he attaches to to bulk him up. If you look at the upper body, it is clearly the voyager mold.

All I see is another disaster like Ultimate Optimus Prime from DOTM. Of course opinions are like @$$e$...

It's an entirely new mold, friend. "Leader class but bigger," is how it was pitched.

Ultimate Optimus Prime was pitched as the largest Optimus Prime to date. Technically, when added to the trailer, it was. But, the cab by itself was barely voyager class.

If it is an entirely different mold great. From the blurry picture we have so far; I say it is the voyager mold we have already seen (and some have), and all they are going to do to make it bigger than leader class is include a trailer that builds onto his body to make him larger. That's just what it looks like to me. And I can be completely wrong.

Why would they say "This is the Ultimate toy" and show the Voyager toy instead?

The reason it looks similar to the Voyager is because it's a consistent look between size classes.

Every Animated Optimus Prime toy looked similar to each other regardless of size class.
