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)

Some images of Prime 1 Studio's Megatron Gold Edition statue have surfaced via facebook. This statue will stand 23 inches in height and will include LED eyes. If you like Megatron but perfer the look of the live action films there is a Prime 1 Studio Superior Megatron.

Nice but, not a big fan of the gold. The regular colored version and the Optimus Prime are excellent though. :BOT:

– LED light up Function on Chest.

Exclusive version:

Looks awesome. Does 'Brawl head' mean the head of the Decepticon Brawl as some kinda trophy thing or is it a battle mask alternate head for Ironhide?

Y'know, I thought it might be part of an upcoming figure, but now that you say that... :-?
