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.

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)

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?

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 Depth Charge's 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?

Thanks to Chingmungmung website, we have an image of the Beast Hunters Voyager Megatron figure sporting a Sharkticon deco! The image, mirrored below, also confirms that the figure's official name is just Megatron, and it comes equipped with a Tartarex Warp Sword - whatever that may be.

I really do like this remold and the color scheme. It's kind of beautiful. I'm not crazy about the mold in general, but I love the black with the teal, indigo and violet accents.

Sweet, i have been avoiding repaints of this line as much as possible but this is a must buy.
Love these concept repaints that get fleshed out this well.

It won't be a Megatron for me, but I still like it.

Well, I liked it from the prototype days (especially the killer fish-sword!). Weird to see some of you slowly come around after being so adamantly against this figure... It really makes me wonder how many of you horde these figures you "hate"! :roll:

But a Depthcharge using this mold would be pretty nice... =P~

Love the names, hate your ending! :-$ Every time I read "'nuff said" it either sounds like the person is a Marvel dork, or that he's obnoxiously ending conversations abruptly and trying to be cool about it. Just my two cents, but 'nuff said' and 'excelsior' is something only Stan Lee should be robo-repeating. :roll:

My first impression: this is the bastard love child of Depth Charge and Dinobot.

Though suddenly i really want an updated classics Gnaw.

I am actually really happy with the line so far. Since I only buy characters that actually have screen time on the show, all this beast hunters repaint - tools, allow my wallet to have some rest.
I only have bought the dragons and voyager prime. And I have only regrets for Prime.

Well well well... I never knew "'nuff said" came from a Marvel Comic thingy. We learn something everyday.

Back on topic, I LOVE that Sharkticon Megatron. If I ever see him in store, I'd pay the full 35$ for it. Then I'll make a "Terror from the Sea" display. With him, Sky-Bite, Energon and Botcon Sharkticon, plus the Seacons Combiner. Can't wait! :P

It's a pretty cool looking figure, but I've no place for it in my collection as I'm only getting the Predacons and a selection of the new molds from Beast Hunters.
