    I wonder if, Drift Legion Class, he can stand... since the lower leg section is formed by two section of the rear window of the car! Steelbane Deluxe, I do not like white/gray... I prefer to wait for the color \"black knight\" from Takara! Megatron, however, is beautiful in all lines... in the small version, is the most beautiful among the Legion Class!

    I feel like Voyager Megatron is a better figure, it feels more compact and very solid alt/robot modes. But I\'m getting the leader for its size :p

    That dragon and Megatron will be bought... With prejudice.  I suspect some really nice repaints, as other characters, will eventually come out, too, either in those line, or to supplement another (film?) line later on.

    Bring them on.

    So Megatron is now packaged with his faceplate down and revealing his mouth as opposed to the ones shown at toyfair or in other pics cant remember where I saw them. Still no news on whether those tusks fold in to make his battle mask?

    Are you talking about leader Megatron? If so, yes the mouthplate folds up and the tusks fold in. On the voyager, only the tusks fold in.

    The tusks can fold in closer as shown on the packaging.

    Oh sorry yes I meant the leader, but good to know the voyager tusks fold in aswell. Now I am torn on which to get, was going to opt for leader for scale wise and it looks stunning but to know the voyager tusks fold in now. Arrrgh screw it just get both.

    Thanks, I never saw this pic before so great news for anyone else also wondering. Now definitely getting the Leader. Voyager can hold off for a bit.

    I wonder if you can take the cannon off the leader class Megatron or not.

    Every time I look at one or the other, I think the other is better. They both have strengths and weaknesses, mostly strengths, that kinda balance them out. I think they're just both really excellent looking figures that I suppose I'll just have to get both. *sigh*

    The cannon becomes the nose cone of Megs' jet mode so I'm pretty sure it has to be removed during transformation anyway.

    It appears there have been some last-minute changes to remove the red cross symbols from Hound. Apparently the Red Cross wasn't as okay with it as some people suggested. Wonder if the movie sees some similar editing.

    Compare the stock photos from Forbidden Planet to those from Smyths:

    That's so stupid. The Autobot symbol is obscuring it like MP Ratchet...

    I really expected the Internet to rip this figure apart when I first saw it and I'm really surprised most of the reaction has be fairly positive. While I agree the bot mode is nice, the alt mode is one of the worst I've ever seen. Like Beast Machines alt mode bad. Unless this has been incredible mistransformed in ever photo we have see i really have a hard time believing this is a finished product. The head sculpture is horrible, his got a foot growing out his tail and neck, the wings are on his front legs and what the heck is going on with the back feet. Is the plan just to leave him in bot mode all the time?

    He's a wyvern, a dragon type which has its wings fused with its front limbs. He was transformed the same way at Toy Fair so it seems to be correct, though I have many ideas on how they could have improved it. Seems to be another Fallen case where alt mode is an afterthought and the robot mode is the main focus.

    What I really worry about is if those wings are hiding some nasty kibble. All the photos we've seen of beast mode have them covering his body.

    Hound still has crosses on his arms and belly in the newest trailers except they are black crosses on white circles, not red.
