Ass-fans? :???: If you meant the intakes he can deploy in beast mode and robot mode, they were on his beast hips/robot back.

I don't think this is supposed to represent Megatron's Transmetal body, but rather his Season 1 body.


I remember someone calling ROTF Ravage's cannons "ass cannons", and on a whim, decided to call Transmetals Meg's boosters "ass-boosters." Not very suitable, in retrospect. :lol:

I naturally thought it would be Transmetals since his season one body was organic as opposed to mechanical.

Maybe the head will come off and clip to his hand. What would season 1 Megs be without a gigantic, bot crushing maw for a hand?

Sorry, Hasbro, I think this one misses...

The Japanese version of Transmetal Megatron, D-40 Metals Megatron, uses a different plastic that eliminates the waist snapping problem.

Actually, it doesn't. Both versions are equally prone to breakage.

I for one love this idea. I don't know if I'd rather see him painted up just purple, or see him brown and purple like him Transmetals figure though. Either way, this is a great offering from Hasbro to us that feel BW goes completely unnoticed lately. Plus, when the Dinobot DLC came out for FoC, first thing I did was attempt to make BW Megatron, and now I can have him in figure form.

I was thinking the other day how they could remold a lot of Grimlock figured into a pretty decent BW Megatron homage, so I hope this is true.

Man, I'm.....kinda on the fence about this. Beast Wars Megatron was my very first Transformer, but....he's fine. I don't need a new version of him. But I kinda want him anyway. Damn choices!

Postby craggy » Mon Feb 11, 2013 12:12 pm

while I'm all for a)Beast Wars Classics and b)fully robotic beast modes and even quite keen on a melding of the two, ala Cybertron Megatron and Optimus Primal, this doesn't work for me. I'm not keen on the head sculpt to begin with, and Megatron doesn't really look right without one of his hands made moot by having to wield half of his beast-mode kibble in it. I'd have much rather had no remolding and a simple repaint into G2 Grimlock, or an homage to the lava Grimlock from animated. They could have even called the red on T-Wrecks (sure he was a BW Meg repaint, but he was far from prominent in fiction, so I could live with such a big departure in design.

Silly that I'm asking for kibble weapons here, but it makes sense for Megatron. Still, it it looks nice enough in the final product I'm not ruling out my being swayed by it.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.
