There is an interesting test shot that has shown up on AC Toys of Generations Fall of Cybertron Grimlock. What makes this test shot interesting is the fact that it features a different head that is very reminiscent of Beast Wars Megatron. Could we have a Beast Wars Megatron remold in store for the future? Perhaps even a small step into Generations Beast Wars toys?

It appears one of Godzillabot's old digibashes from a few months back gave Hasbro a thought.





RIP, little buddy. :sad:

He doesn't really count as Transmetal Megs unless he's got the "ass-fan/bosters", does he?

I wouldn't get it because BW wasn't my thing.
I don't see a problem with it but after the outcry over Grimlock's hollow body and huge tail, I'd be surprised if they pursued this. Maybe as a Botcon exclusive.

Ass-fans? :???: If you meant the intakes he can deploy in beast mode and robot mode, they were on his beast hips/robot back.

I don't think this is supposed to represent Megatron's Transmetal body, but rather his Season 1 body.

Makes me wonder how they would pull an Optimus Primal. Either new mold, or remold. Money's on the remold theory.

I can dig it. Might take some getting used to (even for me), as the body screams "bruiser" rather than "Machiavelli", but that head is badass. If this is true, I would hope for different weapons more reminiscent of Megs. Maybe they would go so far as to retool it enough for the dino head to be used as a hand gun, eh?

I remember someone calling ROTF Ravage's cannons "ass cannons", and on a whim, decided to call Transmetals Meg's boosters "ass-boosters." Not very suitable, in retrospect. :lol:

I naturally thought it would be Transmetals since his season one body was organic as opposed to mechanical.

Maybe the head will come off and clip to his hand. What would season 1 Megs be without a gigantic, bot crushing maw for a hand?

Sorry, Hasbro, I think this one misses...

Sorry man, but that's half their bid'ness. I don't think this looks that bad actually.

I might willingly pick up a beast wars mould...

That must be the molds alternate head. Pretty interesting choice, then again, how many T-Rex TF's do we have aside from Grimlock? Anyone?

I still think the sword and shield should be bigger. I want to see some color images of this. Megatron was the only toy I ever liked from the Beast Wars toy line, so I may bite....

They should just reissue Transmetal Megs... but with better plastic. :PREDACON:

The Japanese version of Transmetal Megatron, D-40 Metals Megatron, uses a different plastic that eliminates the waist snapping problem.
