The star of the 2017 Toy Fair was that sweet Leader Megatron. There were still some questions though, like how complex is the toy, does it follow the more streamlined approach to engineering a lot of Age of Extinction toys had (like Hound, Drift and Galvatron)? And how many flame accessories does he come with?

Well we have answers for you and they are all the best answers possible. A picture of the back of the leader class toy's box appeared on instagram and it shows that he does indeed come with 2 flame accessories, for both his jet thrusters and it reveals his complexity. Leader Megatron will take approximately 30 steps to convert (depending on what Hasbro considers a step). This is leagues beyond any toy from the previous toy line or any Transformers toy of the past 5 years.

Also, the back of the box shows us his bio and that his wave mate is the redeco of the Age of Extinction Leader Optimus Prime that was also on display at Toy Fair. It also shows his battle face which has the faceplate we previously saw but it also shows that his ram horns are poseable and can be brought closer to his face to complete the look.

I still wanna see the differences between the Leader and Voyager Megatron. Cos I wanna know how much I'll have to 'settle for' if I pick the smaller, cheaper option. :P

that whole "force for good" caught me off guard on Twitter, and sure enough: true! Might have to get him now for sure since we rarely get red and black dragons that are good guys. This reminds me of Cybertron Scourge: he is a good guy, but he so looks the part of a great bad guy

SO once again he has no real alt mode, which is too easy of a toy.

Huh...? It's Cybertronian, yes, but it very clearly has a defined shape and form modelled after some kind of jet rather than just random collection of robot parts shoved together. It's a very attractive alt mode, at that; and arguably demonstrates the best way to do a Cybertronian mode - take a familiar concept but make it very alien.

Nonsense, those steps include transforming between 3 modes. From one to another its just about 15 steps, which leader megs doubles. Lets not be ridiculous in trying to be snarky.

30 steps*, **
*Plus all the ones left out of the instructions.
**Plus all the what should be separate steps crammed into one confusingly drawn one.

That jet mode is pretty sweet looking.

So I haven't been keeping up. When can we expect to possibly find him in stores?

I'd bet that the tusks(horns) and face plate move in synch. Mask up, tusks in. Mask down, tusks out. Will be cool to see.
I was going to be modest and entertain the idea of the voyager, but this leader keeps getting better. Finally a Megs to go with my 2007 Leader Prime. :lol:

Also that big red dragon is catching my fancy just because I heart dragons. :x

This is likely to be the very first movie Megatron I actually pick up.

Never liked the 2007 weird jet thing or the 2009 tank thing.

The 2011 truck was cool looking but never actually got him for some reason.

And the 2014 Galvatron was just meh!.

This is the first Megs I like in both modes, and that actually looks cool.

That Jet mode is very very sleek, and leagues better than his cybertronian mashup of parts from 2007.

And at the very least, his head is not just sitting there in alt mode to be seen by everyone. That surely is a step up from his previous flying versions.

The last time I felt so much need for a move line toy was with Evasion Optimus Prime... this Leader Megs looks really, really good. Like, insanely good. I can't wait to pick it up.

The Autobot dragon is pretty freaking sweet, too. Its armor in robot mode reminds me of that of a paladin.

The more and more I see regarding this movie, the more and more I think it will genuinely be good. An actually good toy line? Check. Different, interesting story, while still making sense in relation to the other four? Check. New, interesting characters? Check

(I've been beaten one too many times by these things, though. I'll say I'm "Cautiously Optimistic".)

It only occurred to me the other day that the horns kinda mimic Megatron's G1 helmet shape. I am loving this figure..
