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.

I'm all for Beast Era characters, but I'm just not feeling this. It's just too Grimlock and not enough Megatron.

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.
