From the same Weibo user 爆料人小明, we also have some images of the XM Studios Generation 1 - as in their own take on the Generation 1 characters - collectible statues for Megatron, Optimus Prime and Starscream, though the first is the most prominent as the last revealed. The images mirrored below are best viewed with an accompaniment of the video from Radd Titan, who was also present at the same event, the Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention 2018.

Featured in both are the alternative right arm, and a hand with an Energon mace, plus a general look at various angles and details of the statue. Take a look below, and let us know what you think!

That very "organic" looking Megatron look like Beast Wars Megatron doing a cosplay of his G1 ancestor. Can't decide if it's good or bad.

I think I'd be able to overlook the face if he didn't have such squinty eyes. There's a weird uncanny valley thing going on with the face without big glowing eyes.

I don’t know, I’m gonna go with I actually like this thing. I remember in 1990 Marvel Comics issue #70 when Megatron and Ratchet returned as this merged zombie thing and can remember really appreciating the humanoid, organic stylized design by Andrew Wildman. This kind of reminds me of that. Not sure what the price points on these particular ones are, but if it’s anywhere near what Sideshow and Prime 1 are asking and they’re in your budget then you have options. You could spring for this humanoidish iteration or the more traditional interpretation offered by the other companies. I say the more options for us fans and collectors the better. It seems like even Harry Potter’s got us beat on merchandising and Transformers has about a 14 year headstart on that Wizard. :BOT:

This is how Megatron should have looked in the live action movies. I do hope someone makes a genuine Transformers movie some day, with characters which actually look G1 like this. Designs like this piss all over the Bayformers.

It all depend on tastes, as usual. Such a design for the live action movies could gave worked, but I'd bet my left AND right nut that "fans" would still have complained as much anyway.

Beside, be thankful for the Bayverse. It made the designers think outside the box and create toys with thecniques that were revolutionary. Not counting all the fans it brought. New ones and old ones that came back such as myself.
