    Wow...... Megatron and Starscream looks wimpy compared to him,....wth? >:0 ...but, Shockwave looks good :)  ... I'm guessing hes a tank.

    Also his middle mold/body looks a little Starscream like.

    The toy is pretty good, from what I know about it it's a voyager so I hope he is in scale with other voyagers (unlike the dotm megatron). If not hopefully we will get a leader but I would much prefer a leader megs, optimus, and sentinel (if the list is true that is).

    he looks great and he will be a hard match for any character. he just screams come close to me and you will die. can't wait to see him on screen and hopefully we will see him on the superbowl.

    They hit the points I was looking for although I do wish the chest was a little more Geewunny, but I still like it. And I look forward to seeing what they do with him onscreen.

    This thing is probably my first Must Buy toy of the line. Not to say that I don't like the look of the other ones, but this is the most solid, stable and coherent of the "Movie Cybertron" molds that we've seen. The coloring and paint looks absolutely goregous too. I do wish the proportions were a little bit less Starscreamy, but as a whole the entire concept just works wonders for me.

    I have a feeling this was one of the more inspired toys of the line as there's clearly a throughline between robot and vehicle, more TFTM Leader Megatron and less ROTF Voyager Fallen if you catch my drift.

    I don't like the front of him. It looks like a human ribcage with a sternum.

    Similarities? I think there's a strong liklihood that we have seen Shockwave's alt mode:

    BellPeppers, I think that coincidence have been debunked. Unfortunately.

    I'm with you, I hope it's him, too. But The evidence does present itself.

    I think he's a really good mix of both old and new. Enough of those old elements that long time fans can know exactly who he is without asking, but enough new elements to add that excitement of something new and kind of different.

    The armored look is nice but then as an extra he just looks insanely strong like he could go toe to toe with Prime in a fist fight. No weird little arm and big arm or backward knees while at the same time he's still got an alien look going on.

    It's almost like someone really sat down at the design board and said you know there isn't a reason I can't do something for both old and new fans with this guy.
