    I'm 50/50 on this, part of me likes and and the other part loathes it. I'll wait to see him in action to make judgement. If I was to hear Frank Welker's voice coming out of its mouth, it might sway me more toward liking it.

    Something just realized:

    That Legends movieMegs had a waaay pointier head than this image, I think. Dunno, seemed vaguely pertinent when I thought of it.

    You stole my 501!! :mad 

    We fight at Botcon, sir. I give you the choice of weapons. Light-up Lightsabers, or Energon Roleplay Toys. Our battleground shall be the likely Hasbro movie toy display. Our combat music shall be "Duel of the Fates" from "Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace".

    I have an exclusive pic of the near final render and what the toy will probably look like:

    Got this off the Allspark board. I hear it's a WIP.

    I hate the hands otherwise I like it, he looks like he's evolving into something, like that's not his final form.

    What about "Who let the dogs out?" I've always thought that'd be appropriate for an epic Star Wars lightsaber battle.

    Want to know why Megatron is such a powerful ruler and why no one can take him down? Because he has TWO OPPOSABLE THUMBS while us mere mortals have only one. That my friend is his secret to success.

    Your examples flawed. It's more like 'Hey, those two guys look similar, live in the same house, and have the same parents! They must be brothers!'

    Because they were the same style of picture leaked at the same time by the same person kinda indicates they are from the same general timeframe. :rolleyes:

    At the very least, the designs are not going to be reaching the same stage of development several months apart. If it's not from August, it's from July or September.

    The only other thing I can think of - and, honestly, I would find this hard to believe - is that the CGI folks had only finished the upper half of Megatron and had decided to go ahead and texture-map him back in August...and maybe, just MAYBE, they finished the design and released him for spoilers recently.

    ...why they would be designing and texture-mapping him in that crazy pose is beyond me, which is why I don't think this is any sort of feasible theory. That, and I know about 2% about 3D modeling (I've only done it for Half-Life models, so I'm bowing out now.)

    To add another theory to the pot:

    Maybe the liscensors wanted images for books and underpants and things by a certain date that came -before- the deadline to finalize the CG for the movie itself.

    PS: Movie Megatron underpants

    It would ward off a lot of date rape, that's for sure.

    When I showed that picture to my classmates, they all said: "Awsome! Is that Megatron?" "Yup" "Cool! I new it!"

    And half of them are fans!
