    1- You got me there, the proportions are overall more screen accurate. Yet somehow they still look worse.
    2- His shoulders are far too high. Not screen accurate at all.
    3- I know he has a new alt mode. His toy is still innacurate. His alt mode is definitely not a flatbed like the toy is.

    Some European Amazon sites, but no photos yet last I checked.

    He is a Deluxe. "Voyager" in the front page story is incorrectly.

    1- I mean, the AOE figure's proportions were pretty dang weird even ignoring the fact that the character is meant to be fat.
    2- "Far too high" is an overstatement. They looks about right to me, and comparing it to the CGI stock photo it looks like a bad angle or mistransformation. When you look at it in the packaging he looks fine. Plus the toys always have slightly off proportions because, y'know, transforming toys. He's no less accurate in that department than Megatron.
    3- It's not supposed to be a flatbed. Given the shape of the guns, it seems they're meant to fill in the back half and be able to deploy as artillery as seen at Toyfair. They're just not attached in the stock photo. (and neither stock photo shows him holding his other guns)

    Oh, well that explains it. For a second there I was REALLY confused.

    Oh yeah totally, I mean I'm not saying you have to like it, I'm not exactly chomping at the bit to own one, (though I probably will just to have a Hound) I just don't see anything technically wrong with it.

    I always liked Legend class movie figures. Seeing new molds makes me happy.

    They didn't even replace them with straight autobot symbols.

    So is Steelbane a Deluxe or Voyager? I keep hearing mixed things on it. I'll get him either way.

    The One Step and Allspark Tech figures use the same alt mode too, so it wouldn't surprise me if they're just using the licensing for the Premier Editions to save on costs.

    Deluxe. It was displayed with the voyagers at Toy Fair which I think confused people.

    Just noticed the head sculpt of Legion Crosshairs. Makes me wish the deluxe had a new head. Might have to get the Legion to ride Scorn :)

    Here are the Leader Megatron listings I have been able to find:
    Amazon Spain
    Amazon Germany

    Since European figures use EAN instead of UPC barcodes, those don't translate into non-European Amazon listings.

    I currently have two UPC barcodes for unspecified Leaders (see here) which weren't linked with any Amazon listings yet last time I checked, but as I mentioned before, the Barcode Robot website currently isn't working properly so I can't recheck.

    I appreciate they went to the effort to make the feet from the wheels but I would've been happy with faux-but-accurate feet like the rest of his figures.

    All his toys have that alt mode with the launchers on the back. Wonder if the back of the truck opens up on screen to reveal them. Or maybe they just wanted a way to incorporate the guns into alt mode. At least it's the same base model I guess.

    I can't help it. He's the robot I've always dreamed of, even if his Wyvern dragon mode is a little different.

    I mean just look at this.

    It might be the most beautiful Transformer I've ever seen.
