Is that how he looks?That's so weak for a Decepticon leader.
Plus,shouldn't he be wielding an arm cannon?
Boo for the loss of the fusion cannon from the concept art. Otherwise it looks good but a little too much of GT-R's transformation scheme in the top half.
Digging the swords, but I too am lamenting the apparent loss of the cannon.
Yep.I wonder why they hate preserving old classic characteristics...
The designers/engineers followed the transformation of the GT-R so closely for Meg's upper body that he's also got the engine block attached to the back of his head but due to the shape of Meg's head, it looks like it'll stick out a lot more than on Convoy. Also, in place of the concept art's awesome fusion cannon, he's "inherited" Convoy's car seat twin barrel guns on both arms.
Overall, I'm quite disappointed after seeing the concept art but I'll probably still be getting the Blade Silver version.
So this is what you get when you mix animated megs with g1 bluestreak/smockscreen/prowl.
The concept artwork looked a lot better than this. Hopefully Megatron will look better in colour.
i do not approve.
Megs looks pretty cool.
Alt mode is spot on from the looks of the proto.
looks more like bludgeon to me, and not just because of the swords
Just saw this Z in person, the alt mode is nicely done, but it shouldn't be a megs.
Hey look- it's Drift!
I'm having the same feeling I had with Alternity Convoy (good car TF, bad Optimus) only more so.
Takara/tomy designers probably couldn't squeeze
the fusion cannon into the alt mode, so they dropped it.
Maybe the proto pics were taken without it.
Now we wait and see.
Ah... the Alternity line remembers me why I never liked a alternate bot. Easy pass for me
I'll get him to go with Convoy, but Convoy is waaaay nicer.
I hope so but I doubt it. The twin swords seem to be replacements for the cannon and the car seat blasters on the arms would be in the way . He'd be really well armed if the final toy did come with the cannon though. 2 arm mounted twin barrel blasters, 2 swords and a fusion cannon. Megs would be be packin'.
That is the new NISSAN 370Z!!! That car should be reserved for Smokescreen, Prowl, and Silverstreak. Yeah, I know we got those as Subaru's and an RSX, but this new mold is far more fitting for them than Megatron. Argh...
I like it a lot.
I may pick up the Alternity line.
