Oh boy another G1 redegin without actually changing anything?

"snore"

Wake me when they make a more original design for something not an over-expensive non transforming statue.

Save your money folks no statue no matter the detail is worth the bankrupting prices they ask for.

Show me where G1 Prime ever looked exactly like that.

Never said exactly.

It's still just a slight change to the G1 Prime recipe while still being the same.

It's still just another G1 Optimus which just looks boring.

That sure looks more like Movieverse Prime's face to me.

Sure the face is but the body without Jetfire parts is pretty much a movie G1 version just like their previous G1 movie statues.

You can stick Optimus Primal's face on a slightly changed G1 Prime body and it would still just be a different version of the G1 body.

Prime 1 Studio is at it again with their statues, this time in the form of Megatron Superior! This new Megatron is the counter to the Optimus Superior, and features some very elaborate details. The tease was made via the TFsource Facebook page and the teaser can be seen below along with 3 images of the already revealed Megatron!

That is... certainly quite different. Not sure if it's what I'd call Megatron, but it's pretty awesome nonetheless!

Bayverse-inspired, it seems. It loses points right there, at least from me....

In style perhaps, but not in directly inspired by the movie character. It just seems like a design that's gone through so many drafts and redesigns and over-designing that it ends up at a point where it really doesn't look like the original.

Still, it does look awesome, and I'm really digging that tank tread cape.

Can we have more Transformers with Tread capes please?

Something a bit more original like thise should be what designers try to go for instead of generic designs like all the Autobots from RID.

Bayverse Megatron and G1 Megatron's illegitimate love child.

Reminds me a bit of how the tank treads drape from RotF Bludgeon's shoulders. I like it.

Yes, this.

Yes. Tread cape. Put kibble to good use.

And, while I do see and agree with the latter point, they don't exactly have the budget for that... ;)

Honestly, they kinda do. Figures like Fracture and Bisk prove that RiD can be very creative and intuitive, they just kind of... skipped leg day on the Autobots.


Regardless, yes. Tank tread cape is easily the best element of this design. I'm really not sure on the rest - I have no idea where that head came from and I have no idea what part of this design says 'G1' - but there's at least a few very cool things here.

I do find this better than the movie designs for Megatron in the first two films. I dont see why this wouldnt have worked in a film, same with that Optimus they have coming out.

Eh it's easier sometimes to make a design look better in a static image compared to a moving scene but maybe change the head to the ROTF Megatron helmet which actually looks pretty great and this would be good design.


Also change the cannon to look a little less cartoony since right now it doesn't really fit with the rest of him. (In my opinion of course)
