Posted this morning to Toyworld JP's Facebook page are full color pictures of Hegemon. The name is not important. What is important is that these new pictures reveal not only his colors, but also what accessories might accompany this figure and what size he will be. He is seen standing close to the TFC Hercules figures and has an easy chest and head height advantage! No real word on price of availability, but we will be watching closely for more information. Most pictures are mirrored below or head over to Toyworld JP's facebook page by clicking here.

Is he a lot taller than classics Prime? Still not sure about the handle in gun mode, actually I am sure that it looks awful. Nice bot mode though.

OMGOODNESS this is awesome, its greatness at its best! That looks like it could replace the CHUG Megatron & does that easily! I'll take one for my collection, then I'll gladly give away my nerf gun Megatron! :grin:

I believe Classics Prime is about the size of Exgraver, so ... this guy is much taller than he is. How tall would that make this guy? Ultra class?

Don't care how much it costs...TAEK MAH MONEYZ NAOW!

"Hegemon" (LoL!) robot form = much improved over the Classic/Takara D-01 version (not even gonna go into a nerdrage over the hideous coloring of the Hasrbo version...UGH).
And, He is just as accurate as the MP version due to the "pipe" section that extends up over his right shoulder, just like the cartoon...and his robot form seems a bit more "filled out" than the MP mold...something I always hated about both the G1 and MP versions...he seemed rather emaciated and "Callista-Flockhart-ish" for the mighty leader of the Decepticons...eat a sammich for cryin' out loud, Megs!

And his alt form...BOOYAH!. I hated the classic/takara version (not to mention it left Megs with some nasty wings in bot form...freakin' WINGS!?).

And based on the convenient photos posing him next to the Herc bots...he looks roughly on scale with classic/Takara Prime...also cartoon accurate, as Megs was often depicted being slightly taller (technically as the "more powerful" brother), if I remember correctly.

And I don't know how "preliminary" this mold photos are, but even his FACE looks like a decent reproduction.

FULL OF WIN...I am preordering one as soon as I see the button available.

Still think I prefer United megatron ( I took the 'wings' off mine and covered the sculpted decep sign) but the main reason I prefer United Megatron is because he doesn't have transparent upper arms :-?

The figure looks amazingly cartoon accurate and keeps the scale with other figures quite nicely. I would imagine it'll cost well over 100 dollars though. If it stays under that mark it'll definitely be a great buy.

As I posted on the facebook version of this article, this Megatron would be the one I want to fill out my Classics collection. This Megatron looks solid in many ways even if the legs/gun handle looks a bit tacky.

That is pretty awesome, aside from the transparent upper arms. I'm probably fine with the Henkei one I already have though.

Okay, I've got to ask: WHAT transparent body parts?

These are beautiful images, I will preorder as soon an announcement is made. It's like Classics engineering with a keener eye on the G1 aesthetic.

Size comparison: Classics Megatron (Voyager) seems about the same size, but it looks like this version has a bit more heft to him, so maybe closer to Ultra scale.

2012 - the year of larger scale 3rd party figures? Sixshot, HoS Shockwave, & whatever prototype FansProject showed before.

Keeps scale with which other figures? Looks good with Herc figs, but seems a little big for standard Classics and a little small for MPs or even Faith Leader. Looks quite nice, but their choice of size I find a bit odd.
