Yeah, that facttion emblem is not a Decepticon one nor a Predacon one. Perhaps this signals a fourth faction, or a Decepticon subfaction, or even a redesigned Decepticon emblem?

Well, here's what it is.

Nemesis Primal wrote:An early draft of the Predacon insignia. Could that be our mystery symbol? ...Interesting, but I think it might be a goof that crept through to the stock-photo phase. I expect it'll be replaced with a Decepticon insignia on the version that actually hits shelves. (Or if not shelves, at least online retailers.)

Anyway, it's new, different, and vibrant. I think I like it. And the fish gun/sword amuses me.


Whether or not it's meant to be anything else, who knows. Also though, it could just be a prototype. Lazerback also had this insignia in early pics of him.

Removed images for space, especially since info was off.

But here's the problem: it looks nothing like that emblem, except maybe the lower part.

Is it a prototype? Maybe, but something about this emblem just doesn't seem right.

Ah, I see. Didn't give these clearer pics a good look before posting that and just assumed that the previous general consensus was correct. That is quite interesting then. It doesn't seem to make much sense to introduce a new faction insignia so late in the line (unless this is another prototype design or something) but I guess anything is possible.

If I manage to get this guy, I'd rather just think of him as Beast Hunters Piranacon. Maybe even "Piranatron" would be more fitting!

As long as you pose him with the sword instead of going for the fusion cannon look, the figure works out just fine, in my opinion. The length of the post to make up for the new arm fins ruins that option for me.

This figure looked good in the first place and i can't wait to get it , i hope someone makes a new head for it so it can be a sharkticon it looks very cool for megatron but to me it looks like a total different monster.

Still don't like it.

Not gonna buy it. [-(

But that's less because of the design itself and more because I don't care for how bulky his chest is, nor do I like the fish flaps on his arms.

I do love quirky molds, so I'll pick this up if I see it hanging around discount stores, but I don't love it enough to pay full retail.

Well, that Megs sure look great and I'll buy it full price when it will come out.

I just wish it would have been something completely different instead of just a remold/repaint. That's just a slight "change of clothes" that Megatron did. Optimus Prime knew how to change his form for real, and for the better.

I guess that's what one could really call a.....swordfish.



That was terrible, even for me. This does look pretty darned cool though, but I doubt I'll pick it up-I'm determined to not let myself get into the full size Prime/BH figs, sticking with cyberverse and holding out for generations...

So, blueface Megatron...what color does he turn when you try to strangle him? :-B

Well this is still hot garbage and another persons garbage is another's treasure. The only thing that could have saved this was a different head sculpt and a much better weapon than this crap.

Still he would go good with a few Botcon Sharkticons around him as they all hail to....Lord Megalodon...'nuff said! :VEHI:

Man, so many repurposable options for this remold. Shokaract, Snaptrap, Turtler, Piranacon, King Poseidon, Rampage, Depth Charge, Sky-Byte, Halfshell, God Neptune, Gnaw, Skalor, Gulf, Coelagon...

He could be the next Classics Seeker mold. :P

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned yet that his face isn't poking out anymore.
He's broken the trend of poking out faces for non Earth mode Megatrons that started with movie 1 Megs

Big deal. It's a beast-like vehicle. It can have a beast-like head for aesthetic purposes.

Besides, who says that it actually "is" a head? It could instead just be the front of his ship mode designed to "look like" a head for, again, aesthetic purposes. ;)

I meant it as in Megs took the upper half of a Sharkticon head and welded it to his upper torso/fore section.

And again, it's meant to just "look cool" and look "beastly". Nothing to fret over.

Shame he looks more like Seawing than Nautilator, it would've fit the joke better.

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.

I like some of the ideas here to use this as a sort of Sharkticon commander. I like the head there but I would really like to see someone do a better resemblance to a Sharkticon head for this. I think I'd actually throw that into my Classics display with the Botcon Sharkticons.

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.

Posted by #Sideways# on May 12th, 2013 @ 1:29am CDT
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.

Posted by Burn on May 12th, 2013 @ 1:42am CDT
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.

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)
