    Nope, Devastator is the Abrams tank in the movie. Megs is supposedly a jet.

    Wow, I was worried that if they ever made a Megs Alternator, he'd be dwarfed by 20th Prime. If they keep him at 1:24, he'll be even larger than that - heck, he'll be larger than a Supreme.

    Looks like a considered design for Classics, to me.

    Skunkobot of http://www.allspark.com reports that this site has a pic of a Megatron in 1:24 scale

    Could this be an Alt version of Megatron? The fandom only hopes.

    BTW could someone explain this "scale" stuff as it applies to this line?I've never understood it

    An exact replica - full size would be 1 to 1 scale, written 1:1 or 1 / 1. 1:24 scale = 1/24th scale or one twenty-fourth of full size.

    With Classics though, so far none of the concepts are actual real-life vehicles (with the possible exception of Starscream, who is a somewhat stylized F-15.) This shows that it is an actual Abrams model, and the details are much more Alt-esque. I think if they do make it, it won't be 1/24th scale ( much like MP Starscream is not), but will be in good proportion to the Alt line. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let this be a reality.

    it wont be 1:24 scale guys, it will be at 1:72 I would imagine, 1:24 would be way to big in robot mode, sure it would be cool as hell to have a scale tank with the cars, but i highly doubt it

    no way this is real. we've all seen plenty of hasbro and takara design art, and this isnt in the style of any of it. detail and overall quality of the art is lacking.

    Yeah I think maybe it's a fanart too. How disappointing.

    Cool. If it's real, this could be one fantastic toy.

    Of course, I'm really not expecting it to be legit. Here's hoping I'm pleasantly surprised.
