Looks kinda neat in a just for shits & giggles sorta way, but I can safely say I wouldn't buy it at 3rd Party costs. And if they actually package it like that, good luck receiving your order...

Not bad. It looks good and fits the "modernizing" thing Classics sorta keeps up. Hegemon is still my favorite Walther Megs, but this is impressive. The BIG shoulder-mounted gun is also an interesting twist. I wish the second photo didn't have the watermark smack on top of the detail.

True Dat!

One thing i always wondered about was modernising megs to something more current (thats not a tank, or jet, or batmobile...sorry car).

The one thing that will hurt over here is the way that the figure is packaged. Over there... not so much, they're not as paranoid as the people - read: morons - in charge here (yeah i'm talking about cops who will shoot you for carrying a wrapped table leg! - yes it's happened here in the UK).

I like this new Glock-style one. But are you sure that's a finished prototype in a box? That looks like a digitally rendered image to me.

I love the new modern-look Megatron. It looks very realistic in alt mode and the bot mode screams "updated Megatron." Awesome.
If anyone has a TFSS Breakdown they don't want, PM me please. I would love to take him off your hands.

From what I've read elsewhere, this is only a 3D render...and possibly just fan art.

Wow, as much as I've liked and disliked aspects of the other... THREE 3rd party megs (???). This one matches the Classics aesthetics the best, IHMO. I think it will be a great addition to that shelf. Now, to sort out the other three and decide if any make the cut.

We need some pics of that 3rd one that surfaced. Can't decide till I see those.

I must have it. But, it's not a Glock. Looks more like a Ruger P45 or possible a Taurus equivalent. Glocks have very basic slide design & shape, this is a stylized slide with what appear to be molded rubber grip inserts.

Bingyan Works Megs looks amazing, and it will be a unique piece because it's based on a modern firearm.

Must buy.

GetRightRobot wrote:Posted on Singapore Transformers Fans Unite Facebook page are three images of yet ANOTHER G1 styled Megatron. Yes, another one. This appears to be a finished prototype, in box, that does not maintain a slavish dedication to the G1 aesthetic. This Meg's seem to sport a modern Glock 40 with supressor and laser sight that combine to form the iconic fusion cannon. The credit for this guy seems to be leaning towards a previously unheard of toy maker Bingyan Works. Check out the images below and click here to view S.T.F.U. Facebook page.

I like the gun mode. I hate how they did his fusion cannon.

Oh for, another one? And still not the best design the character has ever had?

Sure this one looks cool, I mean ditch the decepticon symbol and redesign the head and you'd have an original gun TF, but seriously how many more Megatrons do we need?

This one. I like.

Except for how they did the fusion cannon, I would love there to be a hole in his shoulder that the combined cannon could attach to instead of being a hand-held.
