    got this guy today from a seller in china...the instructions show the alternate head like the other characters from generations did...these pictures show a smacking similarity to energon megatron /galvatron....


    That is the vote for the repaint/remold for this transformer when hasbro gets around to releasing a repaint/new character from this mold.

    That's got to be a Black Shadow retool/repaint. Great find!

    Man, I thought it was going to be Jhiaxus, but this head actually kind of looks more Autobot-like IMO. Awesome that they remolded his chestplate too.

    EDIT: Ah, Black Shadow, forgotten about him.

    The flat horns have been seen on a few other TFs, Energon Superion comes to mind. It's definitely not Armada/Energon Megs. The chest has been remolded, too, whoever it is if it was supposed to be Armada/Energon Megatron/Galvatron that would have been changed to match, too. But I cant place who it is...

    Edit: Black Shadow? Holy crap, I didn't think Hasbro had it in them to use Thunderwing's real remold. The chest remold matches, too.

    Doesn't look like Energon Megatron/Galvatron to me. That head is identical to Black Shadow.

    Also, OP, major props on the massive pics. I'm glad we can see the remold this clearly.

    THANK YOU SIR

    Upon further review, it does appear to look like a Black Shadow remold/repaint more than a Megatron/Galvatron homage. Frontpage post editted to reflect that feeling.

    even the center chest piece looks to be remolded to match Black Shadow. Hasbro is really doing great with the Generations line.

    My vote is for Black Shadow.

    Awesome job there Hasbro.... introducing specialized characters (lesser known Japanese figures) to the masses. Makes me wonder what else they have in store.

    To mirror an earlier post, the Generations line is rocking!!!!

    I love Hasbro's new method of showing us a teaser of the next remould. Most excited.
