    Yeah I think that's the right spirit. As for Rampage, 29cm at the least is where I'd place him in MP scale.

    Ok, he's definitely bigger than what I thought.
    TM2 Megatron in an almost perfect BWMP scale? Goddamn, I have to buy this one as well, haven't I...?

    If you want a pretty close scale and show accurate TM2 Megs this looks like the one. Trans Arts Dragon Megs is looking very faithful to the cgi too but this one scales better and from what I understand they are aiming to make this one show accurate as well so hopefully when we see these new pics they'll have made the appropriate changes from the earlier designs we've seen.

    No, but I forgot that the TA one won't be an option for most fans because at 24cm it's not MP scaled.

    So the next question is who do you think they should do next? I was thinking Silverbolt. He was a Fan favorite that takara likely wont get to for a while, if ever.

    Im honestly surprised takara or a Ko like wei jiang/ yes model havent tackled Tigatron. Hes basically cheetor. Just take the Mp mold, make it 15-20% larger, change the colors and the headsculpt.

    eh, if they were going for fully accurate theres a lot of little things that would have to be done beyond upscaling and changing the head. build of the beast mode is different, not as lean as cheetor. orientation of beast head in bot mode is different plus different shape. bot head is different. shapes of beast legs on back are different, little details like that. it almost would require a new mold but based on the same engineering skeleton, like cw deadend and tr chromedome

    yea, none of the in show repaints were really just repaints, the animators put in a lot of work to make them different

    PE’s snout is really really short as well, that’s my main gripe with him. The both of them will be mine nonetheless :)

    Someone here said Rampage so I cancelled my PE Beast Gorira preorder on BBTS which put it back in stock for anyone who wants to snag it. If this Megatron and the company’s subsequent Transmetal figures are MP scale for under $150 then they have a customer for life.

    1.) Is there a height on this guy? Would like a voyager sized version of this character but PE’s is too large.

    2.) Is this more or less screen accurate?

    3.) Price and release date?

    This figure will be around 30 cm to the top of the head. its BWMP scale so larger than PE.its also somewhat stylized but mostly faithful to the CGI model.
    Also itll be i believe 900 RMB according to the company on FB, which translates to 136 USD so probably under 150. Eta at this time is unknown.

    Stylized might not be the word to use. Some places have added detail where in the original toy and cgi there might have been flat surfaces.

    Hoooly shit. How did I miss this so completely? That looks so damn good! Will need to compare it to the actual show CG but just going off of memory alone that is definitely super accurate too.
