Also from the Transformers facebook page we have our biggest and clearest images yet of the upcoming Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Voyager Class Megatron. This version of Megatron is heavy retool of his existing Transformers Prime Robots in Disguise Voyager Class figure. Images mirrored below.

Oh lol! What kind of face is this?

It look like a modern take on Skybite and this bot is just standing there, wondering what's goin on! :lol:

Anyway, he look awesome enough to be a sure purchase. I wonder if a 3rd party company already have a few alternate heads in devlopment for that mold.

Yep, that badge is neither Predacon nor Decepticon.

And we're sure this is Megatron and not Sharkticon? That logo... Is just too odd. It is both Decepticon and Shark mixed into each other. Definitely something fishy (pun intended) going on.

Speaking of odd smells, that face makes me think he was in the furthest back seat of a car where there are no adjustable windows and someone just cut the cheese. I make that face every time.

If that doesn't get a repaint with a new head as Depth Charge I'll be incredibly surprised.

Even has his funky little fish gun to go along with it.

EDIT: What's particularly amusing is the pure epic fanwankery this remold presents me with. To explain: in my collection/fanfic, the initial blue 2007 Bayformer Megs serves as Cryotek, mutated by near-fatal injury from Megs and millions of years soaking in angolmois/Nucleon (undecided yet) into a sparkeater (originally a sparkDRINKer, after the name to Cybertron Metroplex's weapon, but MTMTE compelled me to rename it), with PRID Megs representing him pre-mutation.

And now, we have a blue-faced, carnivorous version of the PRID mould.

It's...it's almost beautiful in its symmetry.

That's enough internet for me today.

Oh dear.... #-o

The new 'Con symbol sucks. I get it's meant to be the basic symbol with some beastly mandibles, but it just looks like a 'Bot's punched it so hard it's cracked and dangling at the hinges.

Although I suppose it does match the new slack-jawed Megatron head. They really screwed up the Photoshopping on this one. The base figure is still pretty cool though.

OKay. So the first thing I think of for some reason is Skybite from RiD creating a haiku about this Megatron...

Purple, blue, and grey
With lady parts in jet mode
He is now a Smurf

THank you (bows)

Gimme either a Depth Charge or a Sky-Byte retool and I think we're square. >:oP

We are getting Generations Beast Megatron, so I could see more Beast Wars homages coming down the pipe.

Are you even sure about that? All we saw was a prototype with the alternate head mold, that doesn't necessarily mean an upcoming release. Remember the Ratchet and Rumble prototypes with the alternate heads?

These two:

Prime Rumble alternate head (for AM Rumble & Frenzy):

Oooh, those. I thought we were talking about some prototypes of the Universe/Reveal the Shield molds of Ratchet and Rumble that I didn't know about. #-o

In that case, carry on, the stupid question has been answered.

Takara United Beast Megatron should just get rereleased with a purple face, that'd be fine for a Generations BW Megs. The Grimlock retool is just Grimlock with a weird head.

Sharkticon Megs as Depth Charge though? I could see that. The head on the actual one is different enough from the standard Megs (even Prime Megs) head that I can see it as a different character already. Maybe just pop TFPrime [strike]Depth Charge's[/strike] Dreadwing's head off and fit it on this body? I don't have both the molds (no Skyquake in my shops yet) to test it with, but if the balls/sockets are a match it'd be fine for a custom I think. Not sure on Depth Charge having the big teeth-y front though...maybe Skybyte would be a better pick?
