Looks like a Seacon. Too bad it's just silly armor on a TF Prime toy.

I'd like this better if the color palette wasn't so garishly clashing with itself.

:-?
The Ebay seller has got LOADS of Beast hunters, Prime, Classics and more prototypes for sale or offer in his Ebay shop.
Pretty interesting stuff, always nice to see where a figure started its life, sort of.

Spotted this RTS Jazz proto - very nice, and comes with a second alt head too! :-?

Some very nice stuff!

Well, it is a prototype: the colors are always going to be wonky. For example:

I would really like these more if his shoulder pauldrons were correctly placed. And if we got to see him in his alternate mode. :BANG_HEAD:

I really do hope the final products looks better. Also,I'm sure I'm not the only one here but do you find it weird that the show Beast Hunters isn't incorporating the toy's designs into the show?

Outside of Optimus I mean. And even then,that comparison is a bit loose due to those spike things on his cab/chest.

Okay then.

Megatron did seem a little damaged (albeit not like the Space Bridge Accident of '10) after he was flung into the core of Darkmount's fusion cannons in "Rebellion". So that can be used as an excuse to implement this toy's aquatic features.

It is most likely that the writers intend to add the line's signature spikiness into the show, but probably at a gradual pace. Also, it does cost money to create the renders.

There is not one Transformers toy that is right on the dot to the character they represent.

also they have Ultra magnus but no mention of the dinobots or other predacons, maybe they will introduce them at the end of the series

That's literally nothing new. XD It's the same altmode, just with differently molded bits. EVERY version of Prime Megatron has a derped altmode; the concept itself is awful.

It's not bad, it's just...meh. It's like "I appreciate the homage, but I don't really care," more than anything. Particularly because this won't end up being in the show.

I like the head remold, but the chest looks like it's bulging so much it's gonna fall apart.

It's not the chest that bugs me. It's more the pauldrons. Those things are U-G-L-A-Y. >:oP

So... What would have been more intelligent is to make a little slot in the weapon so that you could place it over the arm-fin and it would look like the weapon has a dorsal fin.

Just saying.....

Twitter and YouTube user Joe Paulin has sent us an image, mirrored below, which seems to confirm the colours for the new Voyager Megatron, who now sports a Sharkticon deco.

Doesn't look like it. The top is too narrow for it to be from what I can see. It's definitely -something- different though.

So, sculpted like Depth Charge, colored like Dinobot?

I honestly think the cool colors of the test shots suited the mold better, but this is a much more interesting deco than I was expecting.

Not bad. The gun/sword accessory looks pretty good, and the overall color scheme seems to work for Megs.

That's just so...HIDEOUS. I'm a little bit in love. Those colors bring so much out of this mold that really makes him look like the perfect sort villain to take on the all-new, all-heroic Optimus. It's a shame I won't be buying it, because it really pushes all the right buttons for me.

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.

1. How are those Dinobot's colors Bumblevivisector? And don't tell me it's the blue face.

2. That's most likely not the prototype pred logo.

if you count the Arms Micron releases, Megs is up there with Bee this series in terms of reuses. Except, I like them. The retooling is great here, and the colours are really nice and Sharkticon-esque. Don't think I'll pre-order but if it is on shelves in front of me I can see myself giving in to temptation. The weapon is awesome.

I don't know about that, the figure is clearly moulded and painted to homage the G1 sharkticons

Plus im not sure where the "dinobot" coloring comes from, seeing as this figure is gray, blue, purple and green, and dinobot was various browns, blue and white for the bone details

He looks a bit short, like his lower half isn't folded all the way down. It would've been nice if they just made a bigger mold, like the way they used the plastic to make Prime's BH form. I doubt we're going to see all the additions of BH line in the show, due to the minimal amount of episodes remaining.

I know, but just throwing out there the possibility that he may be canceled, similarly to Generation 2 figures.

Why would he be canceled so early in the game? It's not like he one of those final wave figures that barely make it to markets.

And, Generation 2 had toys. Lots of them. Three-to-four years' worth.
