    Hello everyone!

    I found a picture of Botcon Megatron on Actoys.net! Sadly though, the picture does not show his tank or sword.

    The thread also contain more pictures of Botcon Optimus, Starscream and Movie Mudflap! (Please accept my apologies for the mistake in the title, I forgot that he is in the Movie line.) It also contains what I think is a new picture of Rodimus. (Though his spoiler is still upside-down.)

    The page will come up translated by Google.

    Edit-- I figured I should put these here along with the others. Two more auctions for Botcon Sideswipe have appeared on Taobao.com. Here are the links to the aucions:

    There is also an auction for Goldbug as well.

    I'm attaching these pictures too.

    On another note, Props to Hasbro for releasing pics of Mudflap before the factory thieves could.

    I agree with him, that megatron does not suit to my liking. I guess I was expecting a bit too much. Wouldve been nice if he was redecoed to G1 Prime's colors, may look a bit garish but something out of the ordinary to fit him as a Heroic decepticon.

    I think it's a drawing of his head on an actual toy.

    yeah, it's a drawing.

    it looks like a fan just messed with a picture of energon megatron, guessing at what the botcon megatron would look like.

    I'm not certain on whether it was drawn or not.... The person who posted the picture is also the same person who posted all the pictures of the toys at the beginning of the thread. These did include Mudflap, who I think we just found out about today.

    Either way, I'm happy to finally know what he looks like! :D

    HOLY CRAP! I don't care what some of you say, that is a beautiful redeco of Megatron, in my opinion... I'll be proud to own him. :D

    I agree! :D  Megatron's paint job really feels like that of a military commander. I also find it rather amusing that his optics are blue, while Botcon Optimus's optics are red. :)

    It was, no question about it. No company would reproduce outlines on the edges of the face and helmet, and it's kind of impossible to outline real 3D objects in black.

    I really hate how this year's Botcon set is so incredibly freakin awesome. This means I'm going to have to buy all the figures. Which is a big deal, since the only Botcon figure I've ever gotten outside of this set is last year's Weirdwolf, and that purchase was recent. Darn you FunPub for making cool stuff!

    I love how they integrated the blue from the original Japanese release (later ehobby Megaplex) and the red from the US release and later Japanese. Oh! And the black helmet from the US Marvel comics.

    All around BOO-TEE-FULL.

    Is there a way to tell if it's the Voyager sized one? I don't think I'd be able to tell the difference from a picture that's not painted like the originals...

    I'm certain that Megatron will be the smaller of the two molds. While it would be great if it was the large one, I don't think that the Botcon would make that size due to the cost. While I don't own the small mold, I think that they are pretty much identical when it comes to details, so I don't think there is anyway to distinguish them from each other.

    I also like that he has the black helmet! :D  I wonder if anyone has the animation preview that he appeared in.
