Well, looks like this time a voyager figure fill the whole box, not just 1/4 of it (bulkhead, i'm lookin' at ye.).
I like the style of the packaging, will meet every eye.

I like Megatron in some way, may be one figure from this line I purchase.

I still hate the rest of the line though, one can only hope it would be short lived.

They've sucked for years. This is nothing new. Luckily this is not why I buy tfs.

Box may not be so interseting, but what's inside is what matters, I'm sold.

Agreed, I normaly get a minimum of one of each new TF mold, but this time around I'm looking at only a couple.

This was one of them, but the more I see him, the more it's wearing off.

I like this Megatron, robot mode at least. The alt mode is really meh, but I get Hasbro wants to break Megatron away from the whole gun thing.
I really get the impression the toys in this line are gonna make a lot of people go:"Man! I can't believe I passed him up!".
I really do. I welcome the change. After all, that's what Transformers do, they change.

The picture of him on the back makes the gray *almost* look silver-ish, maybe (dare I hope) metallic; which would be great.

Hasbro's packaging designs have really been bad in the last few years. Star Wars and Transformers have both seen the silly "taped tabs on the back" which makes finding good sealed copies really rough. And various angle cuts just provide more trouble.

More angles... more sides for store employees to dent...

Only thing I don't like about this packaging is how all the boxes are just red.
Shape of the boxes are cool
but this show is so G1 like.
they mights as well make purple and red boxes.
Oh well, its whats inside that counts!
and he looks so much bigger than Bulkhead.

I might get this Megatron because he sorta looks like Super Megatron from Battlestars.

Not big on the box shape, but mine don't stay in their boxes.

That said, I can't wait for this guy. He looks really interesting.

I really like the packaging. I think the style suits the Voyager packaging even better than the deluxes, where it just came across as kind of flat and uninteresting. It's a style that's pretty warm and inviting to anybody, particularly a kid, which is a departure from the mechanical, almost menacing movie line packaging.

As for the toy itself....I like the robot mode quite a bit; its curvaceous nature is just so different to TFs, yet it's unmistakeably Megatron. The alt mode will take some getting used to, though, but this is a definite "go" for me.

I like the Animated packaging style.

So now I'm forced to accept Cybertron Mode Megatron as a Voyager. He looks nice, but I think I'll save my twenty for Earth Mode.

I like how all the decepticons are gonna be huge compared to the autobots

The packaging looks ok but it really doesn't matter to me I just want the figure, I only save my Masterpiece boxes

Is anyone else missing the old tech spec cards?

Oh my god! The box is damaged too! It's no longer mint and it's now worthless.
