    One thing that surprised me a little was how dark the gray was on him. I was thinking more a lighter gray. The camera flash or lightening plays a little trick on the screen. Not disappointed, just surprised.

    Love the fan mode tank and canon modes for this guy. Truly a fabulous megatron.

    What are the chances of a darker
    repaint being announced eventually? I imagine IF it were to happen, not until later in the year or maybe even 2018?

    He's not Megatron to me, just as Striker Manus isnt Optimus. However, Striker Noir looks too fantastic to skip and Id bite on a similar dark deco on this mold. Maybe Black/Dark Gray/Purple (as someone earlier in the thread mentioned)?

    Not sure if a dark repaint is even an option. Not saying is couldn't happen of course, but black repaints are more common with Primes than they are Megatrons.
    If they do decide to release one, I'd say you'd be correct with your estimate.

    So this just dropped into my PoL. I've been waiting, but now I'm not sure how it will fit into my collection.

    You just have to start a new shelf with Striker Manus, Striker Noir, Thunder Manus, and the Seekers.

    That is pretty impressive actually. I love that SS and the Despotron goes pretty well with it.

    Best 3P CHUG Megatron in existence, IMO. He's perfect and is probably my favorite figure in my entire collection.

    Rioter Despotron and Striker Manus are the best CHUG versions of Megatron and Optimus by far IMO. I'm excited for them to make more of these figures.

    Same! Excited for the Seekers, Bee, Magnus, and Jetfire. I'll buy everything in this line for sure.

    We're due for a resin dump of new MT products, soon. I think we've gone through everything that was more than just a silhouette now.

    The unreleased figures they've shown prototypes for are Striker Noir (black recolor of Striker Manus) and Thunder Manus (power master Optimus).

    The other figures they've announced are bumble bee and the seekers.

    The figures in the comic (so assume a figure?) are ultra magnus, jetfire, and hot rod. Several characters were killed in flashbacks in the comic but I can't remember which ones. There are also multiple dimensions, so the dead characters could be alive in the other one.

    Able to get Rioter Despotron from Tfsource for $82 shipped after converting my points. That's too good to pass up. I'm looking for a great voyager sized Megatron to scare the shit out of my mp10v and this guy makes Hegemon and the oversized megasorry look like gobots.
