Headsculpt is very BW Megatron, but with the sword and shield I'm more reminded of Magmatron. Very slim chance of it being Magmatron? Mmmmmaybe.

didnt see that one coming, but thats because this mold doesnt work for BW Megatron. With more remolding sure but just a new head sculpt makes it look stupid.

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.

Not to ,ention asymetrical. I figured it would be Transmetal as well.

I think the debate here boils down to whether people view this possible retooling as an homage or update to BW Megatron.

As an homage, it definitely does not work - whether regular or Transmetal, this mold misses the mark for reasons already stated (no T-rex head hand, tail weapon, or thrusters if Transmetal).

As an update, however, I think this is brilliant (I use the word as a non-Brit). I love the vibe this guy gives off - think Kaon Gladiator from Transformers Prime meets the conniving schemer from Beast Wars, and you have a total win.

I'd love to see the color palette, or some Photoshopped test shots, but as of right now, he's buy on sight. :PREDACON:

What I'm curious about is what are they gonna call him? He has the same name as their main Aligned/Generations baddie, so are they gonna say he's another form of that Megatron, call him "Beast Wars Megatron" (likely, but that seems more a Takara move than a Hasbro one), or give him a new name entirely?

If it's the last one, I humbly suggest "Predatron," the way-too-cool-sounding-for-Playskool name of the sole "1-2-3 Go-Bots" baddie (OK, his name was spelled "Preditron," but I prefer this spelling).

It's pretty cool looking. I like the head mold a lot. If the figure is actually planned to release and uses the same colors as BW Megatron then it could work out. But now the Grimlock i pre ordered doesn't feel as special. :-( I still have to get him though considering i played both cybertron games (enjoyed both of them a ton) and had a lot of fun slicing through insecticons with grimlock's sword/ burning them to bits with his flamethrowing ability in dinosaur mode. It will also be my first dinobot ever... but it still won't feel as special considering he's going to be remolded.

This is something you should probably get used to as a lot of figures get repainted or remolded at some point.

*coughseekerscough*

Actually, if I were going to do this, it might be easier to list the Classics/Generations molds that have not been repainted/remolded.

Megatron
Astrotrain
Tankor(Octane)
Galvatron
Perceptor (yet, reflector repaint rumored)
Hound
Warpath

That might be it, after a quick glance at my shelves. Did Classics Grimlock get a repaint?

The Beast Wars Transmetal toys are excellent (lots of BW first season toys are ugly). I know that not everyone loves beast formers, and that’s fine, but the toys are great toys. They are as well made, they have unique/interesting and good aesthetic designs, they really have a lot going for them. For class size to class size they can hold up to any transformer, including today’s generations toys.

Beast Wars Optimal Primal, Megatron, Dinobot, and Cheetor all got completely new molds and released in the classics line just a few years ago.

Sounds like some don’t like this version because it doesn’t capture the iconic essence of Beast Wars Megatron, three to five different toys all with heads as cannons. For others, it sounds like the idea of “more the merrier," more toys the better, newer versions = fun, basically, as long as it is purple, is a t-rex and has a Megatron head then it is all good. Can’t blame Hasbro for trying to get a good return on their investment, and some people are super excited. So that is cool.
