His face seems kinda small for some reason. Maybe it's just his mouth that's too small.

Curious to how it'll be colored. I'm hoping for his Transmetal scheme. Either way, I'm glad I passed of Grimlock (granted I don't recall ever actually seeing Grim).

the only thing i dont like about this figure is the fact that from the backside he is hollow and it is blazingly obvious.... unless he has a magnificent deco this will be a pass. ill put it on my friends and family wishlist just to get him to round out my collection.

Do we have any idea how this figure is going to be marketed (simply as Generations Beast Wars Megatron?) or any other indication about it?

I'm really curious to know if it will make an appearance in the comics, series, whatever! :D

"Possible mis-transformation", remember those words well. :-B The T-Rex head is supposed to fit into the hollow chest.

And speaking of T-Rex, I want T-Wrecks!

Stupidest repaint of the year. For me Beast Wars Megatron is one of those rare characters who needs the dino head/tail arms to be unique. A purple FOC Grimlock is stupid. They should have went with a blue G2 color scheme and they wouldn't even have had to design a new head.

I need this to be purple, but I'll take the TM colors if that's what it's going to be.

I quite like the idea of a Beast Wars homage. Shame that series has kind of fallen into the past. I'd probably buy it if it was produced.

Yeah, they seem to do a lot of mistransformations... When grimmys dino head is aligned straight he looks fine.

Not that I think about it, Transmetal Megatron's T-Rex head ended up in the very same place. :-?

All that talk of GPS in the Laser Rods gallery thread has me wondering about their choice of gold plastic for this test shot: since all the "prototypes" (it's technically only a prototype if the sculptor did some hand-carving on it; a molded figure in simpler colors is called a test shot) that turn up on ebay are supposedly only there through theft, could this guy be the start of a trend of using their excess GPS plastic to produce test shots that'll fall apart in a few years, half-solving the problem? It'd be a shame if a Transmetal Megatron homage ended up suffering the same problem as the Kenner original, so I hope it's not cuz' the real deal will have this same color plastic. Then again, he's not that sparkly...

Only a certain type of Gold and Bronze plastic is susceptible to GPS, and the plastic of this test shot is not one of them. Nowadays Hasbro is too careful, the latest reported case stems from, ironically enough, the Millenium Falcon. Though Protoform Starscream looks dangerous...

I am confident that Megatron will sport his Transmetal colors. My justification? The head. Note the differences between Megatron's pre-Transmetalization body and his Transmetalized body:




As you can see, his Transmetalized head is much closer to the prototype's.



Plus, Fall of Cybertron Grimlock would look fabulous in Transmetal tan-and-violet.

That head is totally Megs. Not sure if would get though...I don't like to have many duplicate molds beyond the Seekers. Plus, the original TM Megatron is still awesome, even by today's engineering standards.
