Transformers: Robots in Disguise artist Andrew Griffith has updated his deviantART account with his concept art for Megatron as he appeared after ditching his Stealth Bomber body. Take a look below.

Check out our exclusive interview with Andrew by clicking here.

Andrew Griffith wrote:So I finally took a moment to upload my design for Megatron's newest appearance in IDW comics, from Robots in Disguise. Included are my ideas for colors, but I think Josh used colors that were slightly different for the book as I only ever shared a b&w drawing with him.

This is the body he was rebuilt into after shedding his ruined stealth jet body around issue #14 of RID.

Was intended to be something of the quintessential Megatron, mixing the look and feel of his G1 design with more contemporary designs like the one from Stormbringer and Megatron: Origin.

Megatron was also designed to have a look that could fit technologically as a modular unit of the rebuilt Devastator, sharing certain design features with the Constructicons from RID.

It's basically WW Megatron with a bit of idw pre-earth Megatron. Still looks pretty badass.

I don't think that's the same design.

Similar, yes, but not the same.

All I see is War Within Megatron with a G1 chest. It looks good, but it's not exactly original.

I like it, but I wish we could get over the squiggly lines leftover from the gun altmode from thirty years ago.

Thirded.

Would it be too much to hope for a leader class toy without any obtrusive gimmicks, seeing as this is aimed more towards adult collectors?

I don't mind a couple of missiles, but nothing obtrusive like the PRID leader class figs.

I know I shouldn't be supporting Third Party companies over Hasbro, but considering how badly Hasbro dropped the ball on the Stealth Jet Megatron, and considering this Megatron is supposed to be a modular part of Devastator, I'm thinking it would be interesting for TFC to make this and retrofit it into their Hercules combiner.

I think we'll eventually get a figure of this... about two years down the line, in Deluxe form, with a Legends class counterpart that gets repainted into Battle Blast Bumblebee. >_>
