    Err... interesting... must be one of the ones you buy at the convention. Probably going to cost a pretty penny too.

    Hopefully in a few years this Meg-headed mold will be released in G1 Meg colors. Cyb Def Red Alert is in my opinion the most ideal mold for a G1 Megatron yet.

    I'm having trouble imagining that mold looking good in purple, but I'll wait to see pics before making any judgment. The BotCon team has done right by the BW show characters so far.

    CD Red Alert for Megatron? Not my first choice, but it could work. The Botcon set has been amazing so far, I'm sure they could make Megatron look great as well!

    Can't wait to see the new head!

    Sounds right, as Megatron was supposed to be some kind of mobile artillary thing on Cybertron. Although, having said that, Primal was supposed to be a monster truck.

    Heard whispers about this awhile back, this kind of solidifies it for me.

    Does anyone else think this should be taken with a large grain of salt? Especially the part about the Predacon key?

    I think its a excellent choice,I can really see BWR Megatron head on Cybertron Ultra size Red Alert.....I just hope the colors are used in the right places because the use of purple,green,black and sliver doesnt sound like a easy choice of colors to work with....maybe someone can photoshop a visual idea how it may look?


    My question is with all these figures in the set...how much is it? Its looking to be mighty exspensive! There goes (Im assuming) half on my savings for a PS3....

    Well, given that the "Maximal" key is just an image of the golden disk on the front of the "Decepticon" key mold, with a small Maximal symbol tampoed on the bottom of it, I don't see a "Predacon" key being too difficult.

    Is this a bad time to point out that we got several clear shots of Megatron (and scans of him, one of which ended up in the S1 title sequence) pre-T-Rex?
