    Don't know if this was mentined yet, but for those of you lucky enough to find Leader Class Megs. Has anyone else noticed the pictures on the box of Megatrons head. It has the battle armor in the picture, and the actual figure doesn't. (In other words the head on the toy is different from the picture) Does this mean that there will be a variant megatron?

    Perhaps the package is Meg's older version while the actual toy itself is new ?

    I'm thinking that they changed the head on the production model from the one that they took photos of for the packaging. Kinda like Protoform Starscream.

    Just like Protoform Starscream and Voyager Ironhide (longer stacks in alt mode)

    I mentioned that in the feedback thread a little while ago. This also accounts for why his head is so much more visible in ALT mode.
    That's it exactly, after his toy was made, Megatron's head design was changed, the toy head also was changed, but the pakaging proto images were not.

    Interesting observation and a good catch... I don't know which version of the head is worse.

    Its funny...both of the Leader Class figures seem to embody the extremes of the movie aesthetic... Prime in all the GOOD ways, Megatron in all of the TERRIBLE ways.

    I would buy a duplicate Movie Leader Class Prime before I would buy a megs...
