    after looking at the planned tfa Shockwave/ Longarm toy pics is it just me or does it look like they borrowed from the unproduced transtech megaton for his design. also some of the other cybertronian vehicle designs seem very trans tech to me. what is everyone elses consensus.

    It's a really big stretch, but I sorta see what you're saying. His tank-mode reminds me a lot more of Armada Megatron than it does Transtech Megatron. As for the other Cybertronian alt-modes, Transtech is one of the last things I think about when I see them. Specifically, when I first saw Ratchet's Cybertronian alt-mode, two things came to mind. Rodimus Prime and a turtle.

    Well, considering he's based on Armada Megatron, and Armada Megatron was based on Transtech Megatron.

    Yes he looks a bit like the Transtech Megs.

    And really the only transtech-ish alt mode I saw was Blurr and maybe Wasp, but they're really more like Cybertron/Energon than Transtech.

    Sure :thumb . I might have to make a signature saying that with a picture of Rodimus Prime, a Turtle, and Ratchet's Cybertronian alt-mode in it, lol.

    The slide from SDCC said December of this year, so we might see him sometime in November. Which would be awesome as I'll then be able to buy him and some others with my birthday money.

    Well, Blurr was supposedly based a bit on Transtech Cheetor, so it wouldn't be too much of a stretch.

    Yeah Shockwave's tank mode is more like the Armada Megatron with the treads being his shoulders.

    Vehicle modes? Totally.

    Robot modes? Not a chance. Other than the treads on his arms/legs.

    yeah those are pretty spot on to the transtech, even longarms bot mode is almost similar, the treads on both longarm bot mode and trans megs are in the same spot.
