    megatrop, he toldjaso.

    kinda looks bland actually. but only now im starting to really notice how with the movie toys theyve really reduced the color palette for figures.

    regular TFs usually have 3-4 colorways.

    You didn't tell me about this last night sugar dumpling!

    Why would an Energon figure be a movie figure?

    I like the more serious/realistic decos. I passed on the original because of the crappy paint job, but this one I'm getting for sure.

    No way. It doesn't even remotely fit in with the movie designs.

    We knew we would get older redecos in the basic class. He just got it straight from the factory, just like he did for my FAB Prime, CS Prime, DLX Bumblebee and so on.

    i am guessing he knows this from his contact which has helped him to get his movie toys.

    edit: seriously guys. you guys are just giving him more fuel for toldjaso's.

    Well, until we get some kind of confirmation, then I'll take this being a movie fig with a grain of salt.

    Because it's the Energon mold. He didn't know what it was when he got it, he originally thought it was some exclusive.

    Remember this?

    If they truly are filling out the movie line with repaints of older figures I'll be very surprised. Either way I don't like this mold enough to buy it again.

    Actually no, because I don't troll the copyright listings. I knew we were getting a movie Arcee figure, but I was under the impression all the movie line toys were going to be new and original molds.

    I'm going to be highly disappointed if this is not the case as I love the movie designs, and to have toys that don't fit that aesthetic is going to be jarring for my collection.

    That said, I also didn't say it wasn't a movie toy, just that the title for the lot said it was an Energon proto. Which, until we see it in a movie toy package or have some other official confirmation from Hasbro, it could very well be.

    Admittedly, not likely this soon before the toys are released, but it could be.

    Doesn't look like any of the scout class movie toys appear in the movie anyway.

    Some have said Wreckage doesn't fit the movie either.

    For now, i'm giving Megatroptimus the benefit of the doubt.

    looking at that list it sounds pretty much like an all energon wave. almost.
