    I'm generally optimistic about the movie, but I can't say I like that design. Maybe it'll grow on me.

    I wonder if Hasbro is going to make both the "Alien" type toy and a earth vehicle toy. Could be interesting.

    Well. The first design that, in my opinion, looks like total shit. You think they would have tried to make *SOME* part of the figure look like the original. Or any incarnation, for that matter.

    Good thing he's only in the movie for the final act.

    Liking it. A lot. I'll be very interested to see how the toy translates the design.

    I've kept pretty quiet on these designs as the only one I disliked was Starscream (liked the design, but didn't like it as Starscream). But this is a terrible, terrible Transformers design. You gusy officially fucked up Megatron.

    It's beginning to grow on me already (yes, in 3 minutes). Could also be the caffienne talking.

    EDIT: I just like that it's different. But what I don't like is the fact that I can't recognize it as Megatron. If he's not spoken by name, I won't have any idea who he is, and I've been a Transformers fan all my life.

    THAT is a problem, Hasbro and Paramount. And if regular Transformers fans/collectors can't recognize the figure, there's a very, very serious issue that needs to be addressed. Because with that design, in some way shape or form, you're raping the character that is Megatron of everything that people from 20 years ago loved about him.

    They seem bound and determined to make the Cons really, REALLY ugly.

    That's two I can't stand now...Megs and Starscream.

    Why is he posting a link back to here claiming we mislabeled it?

    Thanks for the spoiler, Kickcback :mad  :throw 

    I like the un-armoured head, looks like ole Megabolt got a body. As for the rest? Uh, no... just looks like Guyver got dipped in Chrome and let out on a rampage.

    First thumbs down from me.

    I am one who has been thrilled by the new robot designs but i think this is perhaps a little too far.

    i like the face which is interesting but i am a little dissapointed at how Megatrons whole body looks.

    Maybe it could grow on me but this is the first thing ive been disapointed with at the moment

    Holy crap.

    Okay, as designs go, that's a cool design. It's a cool Transformer design, even - a fresh new direction to take the line in, as many have been saying that it needed. (And they're right.) And it's like Transtech, and I was so annoyed we didn't get that line, so I like it. So as designs go, it's interesting, and I like it.

    But... It's not Megatron. It's not even remotely recognisable as Megatron. Okay, he didn't need flares or a bucket on his head, but... *something*. And I know we need to see a new set of designs for Transformers, but... It's like, imagine if for the X-Men movies, Cyclops hadn't had his visor. Or Wolverine hadn't had his pointy hair. (OT: Is he related to Dilbert's boss..?) It's a problem on that kind of level. Oh, and just in case you're wondering, I didn't like the RiD or Armada Megatrons, either, for those very reasons - so at least I'm consistent. ;-)

    Of course, in the end, I'll wait and see how it plays out in the movie. It could rock like anything. And that, I think, is my biggest complaint: Can't they just hurry up and finish making the movie, dammit? I wanna see! ;-)

    So terrible. Worst design yet. The Cybertron jet even looks stupid.

    Don Murphy may get his wish. The fans may go away and never come back.

    For shame, Hasbro.

    Even Frank Welkers voice can't help that pile of chrome turds.
