We have two new Transformers: The Last Knight sightings for you. Mission to Cybertron Skullitron and Megatron were found at Toysrus (their exclusive retailer) in Los Angeles by TFW2005 user keldroc. A user from the same site, prime roller found Series 2 of the fan favourite Tiny Turbo changers in a Taiwan toysrus. This is the first worldwide sighting for these new toys. Hopefully there will be an identification guide shortly. That is the wave that includes Megatron, Barricade and Sqweeks. The wrapper is almost identical aside from having "Series 2" in the upper right side.

I missed the bit where it says Taiwan and thought those were some insanely expensive Tiny Turbos there. :O

Ah, yes, the classic question - who needs a knife in a nuke fight?

Forgot about him. Nope.

I am a bit on the fence about Crosshair and Drift, mainly cause Drift is so different in terms of color and stuff and Crosshairs because the alt mode looks much better.

Drift is a really poor attempt at a toy. It takes away anything good the original mold had and makes it worse. If you arent a fan of pieces not tabbing in and floating around, avoid him at all cost.

Well, considering you and I have about similar tastes in titans return toys but strangely opposite opinions on movie toys, I take this as a sign I should get him anyway!

But that red looks soooo good on him. Much better than the blue in AoE. Or maybe that was just on screen...

One big example is that Leader Megs simply swings his jet wings behind his back in robot mode, whereas Voyager Megatron's wings fold in segments around his legs below the knee surprisingly neatly. The front and cockpit of the jet mode forms Leader Meg's fusion cannon whereas on Voyager that area folds up behind him and the fusion cannon is actually stored very tidily (still permanently attached to arm) into the central rear of the jet. I prefer the small size of the Voyager's fusion cannon. Looks much neater to me and probably more movie accurate. Obviously the big feature the Leader has over the Voyager is the battle mask feature of the head. I do wish they'd include alternate heads with figures like Voyager Primes and this Megatron so you could swap them at any time since the Leader gimmick is probably too tricky to do at the smaller size. Also the Leader class has those cool flame accessories but you can probably find or make similar items to use on any TF figure. I think there's even small companies that produce various flame/energy/gunfire pieces for action figures anyway.

Obviously this is all just my opinion owning the Voyager Megatron and loving it very much. If the battle mask and larger size of the Leader suits you more than consider buying that one. For me the Voyager suits my Megatron needs just fine.
Thanks for the description. Sounds like the leader is more my preference, even though I would like the cannon to be more integrated into the jet mode, like the voyager has it. But with the battle mask (which I think it pretty cool) and his sheer size, I think I will go with the leader class. I really don't care for the flame/cannon fire pieces, I just see them as useless extra pieces. I will probably leave them in the box. It's what I did with voyager Prime's blue shield.

I can't help but think of Double Dragons when I think of the two next to each other.

The unpainted red on the toy looks a bit bland but a simple wash of black ink really brings out the details nicely.

No colour scheme could possibly make that horrific design any good. >:oP

I'm just glad a lot more effort went into better, cooler designs like Nitro and Cogman.

A bit more than wash but, yes it does make it look leagues better:

Yeah, that one looks gorgeous. I just meant if you don't have the time or skills for a full custom paint job, then black wash is always quick and easy to just add some nice black line definition to details. Similar to how a dry brushing of silver paint can make areas look more metallic. :)

Not true at all. Why should willingness to defend himself and others (especially those unable to defend themselves) rule out gentlemanhood? Gentlemenness? Being a gentleman.

Yeah; depends entirely on context and the mindset, reasons and justification behind using a weapon. I don't want to turn this thread into a theological discussion about peace vs. war and the price of death or weapons or whatever, but I highly disagree with 'using a weapon means you can't possibly be a gentleman'. Just a bit silly, really.

Get him, I dare you :twisted:
Any fans of unpainted toys will be in heaven handling this guy.

Also, lets wait till you get Sqweeks before we fully judge our opposing taste. I believe he is the best toy so far and I look forward to knowing your thoughts on him.

Speaking of Sqweeks; He doesn't transform in the film (the state he was in, i couldn't blame him really. poor lil fellow) but I've been using his toy's scooter mode for Mikaela as she has a very similar one in the first film (ok this figure is April O'Neil from 2014 TMNT but it's still Megan Fox and could easily have a repainted outfit. Annoying lack of knee joints but the plastic is soft enough that heated up I could probably bend the legs just fine at the knees)

I still love Sqweeks both the toy and onscreen character. Easily my fave 'cute' robot ever. I may say that Voyager Megs is my fave TLK toy so far though for opposite reasons like Megs is as badass as Sqweeks is cute and they both have fun and satisfying transformations I've done back and forth many times already without any issues.





By the way, TFWIKI states on Sqweeks toy info " Sqweek's vehicle mode headlight piece does not have any glue holding it in place and tends to pop out during transformation. " But the headlight piece on mine doesn't come off at all even with me forcibly pulling on it. A factory error on theirs or a running change?

That's cos there is. Wave 3 is what has the Deluxe class Bumblebee (the all new one), Cogman (the headmaster), Crosshairs (retooled from AoE), Strafe (recolored from AoE) and Voyager Class Nitro and Scorn.
