Hasbro is really odd sometimes. We knew T-Wrecks was coming (the straight redeco of Kingdom Beast Megatron) and they knew we knew. And yet, we didn't get any kind of official reveal. Well, too late now. It has since been found in Australia and is now revealed as a Toyworld exclusive in Oceania. We have our first official listing with stock images. This is a Target exclusive in the US and a probable Toysrus exclusive in Canada.

We also have a video review from fellow Seibertorinan Ham-Man to acompany these official images.

That art (along with the 3d render in the back of the box) does make me think there was a mixup BUT the official pic of the finished toy shows the unchanged megatron head so, who knows. Doesn't explain the white on the mouth though.

I guess this means they have officially abandoned the toy accurate headsculp? Bummer. I was already disappointed that it had no mutant mask.

Looks genuinely awful :(

As someone whose only experience with the bw megs mold was through t-wrecks - bought at one of only two botcons that I went to with my father when I was younger - it's one of the few figures that is sacred to me, and seeing it here, just blurted out in some zero-effort deco actually hurts me on the inside. That gray plastic is just the actual worst

The silver on the mouth is the big tell that the paint apps were designed with the alternate head in mind, meaning that whatever happened that caused the use of the primary closed-mouth head (accidental or not) must've been quite late in the process.

More reasons for me to skip this one and just hunt down the original.

Yeah, if they'd done the mutant head instead of megs head, I would have liked it much better.
Overall this release is underwhelming for me.
Sadly this will probably the one Target Exclusive that ends up being readily available.

I will likely only get it if it lingers at Target and they put it on clearance.

The deco is exactly the same as the original T-wrecks. The only change is using grey plastic instead of a more metallic tan. The deco layout is 100% what the original T-Wrecks had.

Not sure what more deco you expected or why.

I think the shade of red they used is what is putting most people off, it should be darker.

I'm suffering from supreme boredom with this T-Wrecks thing. I'd like to hear some info about Wave 4. Hasbro, can you make that happen?

I agree, the red, is more brownish than the deep red it should be. But arguing the deco is lazy when it's exactly the same as the original in terms of layout is what I don't get.

Exactly the same, my foot.

The gold was dulled down to almost gray, the two different blues were reduced to being the same color, the helmet was left red instead of copper, and there was little attempt to put the bright pink into the color scheme...They seem to have missed the charm of the original deco.

I can't help you with Wave 4, but in a few days or so I can take some pics of Wave 3 core-class...

Soon my Soundwave collection and Dino bones collection will grow by one. Distribution must still be wonky if figures are getting this kind of early release.

That helps. And no offense to T-Wrecks, I'm just not getting it and we've known about it for months to all my T-Wrecks peeps.

Hue differences in paint and plastic do not translate to a lazy deco.

The general applications are the same, And yes I already said the grey vs the tan and that the red needed to be deeper. That's just hue differences, not deco differences.

The deco is the same. There are no real paint applications missing, just different hues used. Maybe because of the different plastics. Hard plastic vs the heavy rubbery skin Kingdom Megs has.

It's the same hue difference between the Original Megatron and Kingdom Megs and even MP Megs.

Kingdom Megs has a deeper purple than the original Beastwars Megs which was much closer to grey. But nobody is complaining Kingdom Megs does not exactly match the original.

The original's pink, baby blue, copper, and green are all gone. That's half of the original toy's eight colors missing from this version.

Counting the tan replaced with gray makes over 50% of the original toy's colors removed from this version.

Kingdom Megs was trying to be cartoon-accurate. The cartoon model's colors were always different from the original toy's.

Id expect his crotch To be fully blue like the original TWrecks. That definitely stops the colour layout from being 100% what the original had.
