    If you guys are like me, then anticipation for the Neo/classics line is probably driving you nuts. Lately, I've been really wondering what this new, potential gun-mode Megatron might look like; I even went so far as to draw up my own design of what he might look like (probably way off, but eh, why not?).
    Maybe some of you guys could post some potential designs, and we could have a little contest; when Hasbro reveals the actual figure, we can see who had the closest design?

    Agreed. The alt-mode doesn't look to much like a real firearm (Yay, no neon pink Megatron!) and the robot mode in just pure goodness. :)

    one problem i have with it is, is the face makes him look grumpy, or just depressed. other then that, it's prefect.

    Yeah, something about his mouth area didn't carry over too well with the inks... I might have to try to touch that up.

    Edit: And here it is with said touch ups-

    Very nice, very nice indeed.
    I wonder if Takara knew what they were doing when they designed the original megs with a dirty great big trigger between his legs? Ahh... it was such an innocent time....

    I like it. The smaller mouth looks way better. This also made me realize that an orange barrel on the new Megatron toy might not be so bad. It sorta hints at Galvatron.

    So... is any one else working on possible Neo-Megs designs?

    i like it, the mouth looks great now, and i like how it looks like it could transform into a gun, but it also could transform into a tank. it looks like it's the best of both worlds. great job.

    Agreed. Looks great, but the face just needs a wee bit of tweaking.

    I was going to do some more work on this (fix up the colors, incorporate the gun mode and transform sequence) but I've kinda lost interest now that the official design has been revealed (and mine looks nothing like it).
