By way of HK-TF user zeroeo we have in-hand images of Transformers Generations Legends Wave 2's Megatron with Chop Shop and Starscream with Waspinator. Starscream appears in his traditional jet mode, while Megatron sports his on again/off again tank mode. The ever so awesome Chop Shop and Waspinator are effectively triple changers, who can become weapons for the Megatron and Statscream. Check these guys out below.

Starscream & Waspinator are still looking good. But are Waspinator's eyes unpainted? :-(

As for Megatron...

Not liking the undetailed beige on the back of the tank's main gun.

Is it just me, or does that last image suggest that Chopshop can combine to form forward armor for Megatron's tank mode ala Movie Brawl?

I'm really unhappy with the unpainted beige platic on Megatron and the drabness of Starscream's paint job. If it weren't for Waspinator and Chopshop, I'd cancel my preorders for these.

I think Hasbro's been listening to fan reaction to PCC Heavytread and Groundspike, including frustration at not being able to find enough of them.

The question then becomes whether Choppy counts as a quad-changer, or no because his other weapon mode is just his bug mode on Megatron's sleeve.

First question: how is attaching Chopshop to the front of Megatron related to Movie Brawl?

Second question: what does either one have to do with the PCCs?

To answer your question: I'd still call him a triple-changer since beetle mode and gun mode are essentially the same.

It seems Chop Shop can attach to Megatron in the same way Groundspike can with PCC Heavytread. ;)

Movie Brawl's alternate mode is based on a heavily modified M1A1 Abrams combat tank. Here is an actual M1A1:

Compared to Brawl's tank mode:

Best image of his tank mode I could find, sorry.

See the spiky armor bits on the front? That is what I was referring to. ;)

They're cute, but $10 cute? Not sure yet.

That Chopshop is really nice though, might have to splurge just for him...

Waspinator looks amazing! I can't wait to have him in hand...and permanently give him Screamer's null rays. :lol:

Megatron is too short. He should NOT be shorter than Starscream.

Makes me wonder how tall the Thrilling 30 Deluxe Megs is in comparison, because that Starscream looks quite a bit like he did in Spotlight: Megatron. If he's slightly shorter than a Cyberverse Commander, the scale might just about work.

There's no scale among Legends figures. This isn't Cyberverse, with Commanders and Legions. This is more like the old-school Legends lines: all the figures are the same size, scale-be-damned. OP and BB aren't to scale either.

The good news is that these guys can probably blend in with other lines, as you suggested. I'm already thinking the Legends BB, in bot mode, would look good with WFC Optimus, since he resembes WFC BB.

Come on Sabrblade, mellow out a bit. ;) It's clearly G1-themed Starscream, isn't it? Does it really matter what design of Starscream he resembles? After-all, Beast Wars Waspinator didn't transform into a weapon. Yes the biography alludes to the Beast Wars episode 'Possession', but that doesn't mean it is. Who's to say such an occurrence wouldn't happen in an alternate universe anyway?

I like the artwork on Megatron's card. He looks a little on the puny side, like a bot that actually used to work the mines. The colours of the figures are a little bland, so I may pick up the Takara versions instead.
