Weapon: Gattling Gun
Collection.org has gotten a hold of prototype images of the upcoming Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Voyager Megatron. As you can see in the images mirrored below he's a remold of the existing Transformers Prime Robots in Disguise Voyager Megatron with new seemingly aquatic sculpting.

Weapon: Rapid-Fire Sonic Shell Cannons
His chest looks a lot like Depth Charge and a Sharkticon's lovechild:

Mindless and honorable. The perfect couple.

But I wonder why they're going for this gimmick? Well, it isn't like we've seen any underwater missions before...

So they'll be continuing this turd? Ouch. And, as an insult to injury, the weapon became bigger. My PRID Megs can't hold his blaster up as it is. A bigger gun will do miracles.

BTW, the head/chest looks like Skalor. Maybe his alt. mode will end up like Seawing?

Ugh, gawd that's awful. So much for my hope we'd get a voyager re-release with a PROPER metallic scheme just to fill the shelf space. Instead we get a giant "gun"," with free robot-shark-space-boat turd accessory.

You were hoping for a non-beast-themed design for a beast-themed toyline?

Actually that's what so unfortunate - the non-BH toys are on average really good! Unique character shapes, solid vehicle designs, almost organic in their posability. Granted Megs has always been an exception in the "solid vehicles" department.

**sigh** Hasbro, is your stocks really doing that well that you just stop trying?

The only thing "good" about this toy is that it's, at the very least, better than "Tote bag" Beast Hunter Optimus Prime.

And rather ironically it jumps the shark. Removable weapons and armour are one thing, but hardwiring the armour into megs jumps the sharp to the point where the series is trying to be BW, but trying to not be BW (as opposed to a redux of the Dinobot Hunt premise), and really changes the tone of things for the worse.

Motto: "The sins of your father do not have to be your burden."
Weapon: Sniper Rifle
I must be the only one that wants this. I think it looks pretty cool!

Obviously, except for the weapon. The weapon is shite... But, other than the Star Saber, and Shockwave, ALL The Beast Hunter Weapons have been shite. In fact, go back to the RiD Prime figures, and half of those were even crap.

I hope the color changes, but I think this is cool.
Here is what I'm looking for:

Scout:
Windcharger (RTS), Dune Runner (HFTD), Beachcomber (ROTF), Brakedown (ROTF), Oil Pan (ROTF), Breacher (HFTD), Crankstart (HFTD), Sky Stalker (ROTF)

Deluxe:
Fallback (RTS), Mindstorm (RTS), Vehicon (FE), Cliffjumper (FE), Ratchet (B.H.), Dreadwing (B.H.), Arcee (B.H.), Knock Out (B.H.), Shadow Strike Bumblebee (B.H.), Prowl (B.H.)

Voyager:
Mindwipe (ROTF), Highbrow (HFTD), Strafe (RTS), Deep Dive (RTS)

I too want this guy. I'm certain his official colors will be better, though I love how the plastic is evocative of the Seacons.

I kinda like the modernized Seacon-esque colors and the generally fishy aesthetic. Not enough to buy it or anything, but it's pretty amusing to see.
