    I just had to start this thread,but I wanted to talk about the pics
    on the home page, Megs in particular. He is a "Gun", now we have
    heard many times that Hasbro wouldn't do Megs as a gun again.
    So what changed. I hope this turns out to be true,what about yall?.

    I expect Megatron to have a lot of orange on him.

    I think the orange is only necessary on realistic guns. This one doesn't really qualify.

    I'm thinking only the little barrel stub thingy is going to be orange. I get the feeling the rest is going to be mostly black and flat white. Possibly some red details too. Hasbro has put out plenty of roleplay Star Wars guns in recent years that only have the orange barrel; Megs doesn't look any more realistic than any of those, so no reason to believe that they'd make him all orange or anything like that.

    Expect the tip of Megs barrel to be orange and maybe even the scope.

    If there is any orange I will promptly paint it black or silver.

    They turned Prime into Motormaster! :eek: 

    Looks cool. Now I want clearer pics. At least this time, they remembered what a COE looks like. I don't see any signs of the dread mutant windshield.:rock 

    Megatron looks kibble-ishous. :inquisiti

    Maybe the kibble is the part of Megatron that makes the gun so big and bulky. Thus removing it, will provide a sleeker, smaller, gun mode?

    No nitpicks from me.

    G1 is back. It's probably back for good, since the movie is also based on G1.

    I never expected this to happen. I never imagined megatron having a gun mode again, or his wonderful bucket-head helmet.

    So no complaining from me. I'm happy, I'll buy everything, no matter what it takes for me to do so.

    From the other thread:

    There is no law, local, federal, or otherwise that requires a gun to be orange. There never was. Federally, there's a requirement for all toy guns to have an orange cap on the barrel. In New York, I believe, there's a local law requiring an orange stripe on the barrel.

    There is also a requirement for a bright color to be on the gun. I don't remember if that's federal or local, I think it was local. Since it's illegal to paint your handgun, having a simple bright marking on the toy makes it easily distinguishable. Hasbro has used camo markings on their Star Wars guns.

    TO me its obvous he is a made up design, so if anything I don't think any rules changed, rather hasbro worked around the rule.

    I doubt there would be orange on him due to what I said above as well.

    In addition, Hasbro seems to have no problems with stylised toy guns that are primarily bright white with a little black here and there (seen quite a few SW blasters done as such, with the obligatory red muzzle cap - both Solo's pistol and the Stormtrooper rifle repaints spring to mind).

    Can't wait for more detailed pix, but regardless, I shall definitely be shelling out for the lot. :D

    I think they are both excellent looking. Kibble comes naturaly with transformers so I dont know why a few people are complaining. As for the legal requirments regarding Megatrons gun mode i do not think Hasbro have breached any laws, rather just worked around them. Besides the spaceaged sort of look works for a Cybertronian.

    Yeah, no complaints! I'm just glad that Megs has a helmet head and is a gun. One of the reasons why I found hin cool as a gun is because he was the only TF in G1 history that was a gun...and although a tank seems more "fierce"...TFs that transformed into tanks were quite common. Eg. Brawl and Blitzwing.

    I'm just worried about Meg's colours but kudos to Hasbro on the Neo G1 line-up!

    Exactly. Thank you. He is a gun, yes, but he is not a replica of a real gun.
