    Megs actually looks pretty cool. Ultra Magnus, not so much. I don't plan on getting either one of them though. If I was going to get the molds, I'd go for the original decos. We can now clearly see some details the smaller pics couldn't show. Like Ultra Magnus keeping his blue head, which had appeared to be a medium/light gray color in the smaller pic.

    :confused:  stock images of Unicron? Only thing I can think of is the TRU rerelease of the Armada Unicron, but we usually don't get new stock photos for things like that (as far as I know anyways).

    I'm definitely getting Shadow Blade Megatron for my Black Shelf (Pic below). I getting Magnus but I'll wait until it goes on clearance. Not because I don't like but because people are on the fence about it and I'll be able to save $. Great repaints!

    Maybe that Roadbuster color appeals more to kids. Not much for me, I'd rather see a black repaint

    Don't like either. Just more stupid repaints.

    I'll take Roadbuster over show-accurate normal colors, please?

    Seriously, he looks more like Roadbuster anyway.

    Wish he had a Roadbuster head though - I guess that would make him actually Roadbuster, though.

    Would've been cool if the Megs repaint had a Whirl color scheme...

    RUM is a nice homage (and a decent acronym), but I'll only buy the original color scheme. The black and purple Megs, though, is enough to convince me to skip the original release.

    that black and purple Megs is pure sex. I'll probably buy this when I see it. He'll be renamed Megastorm.

    Magnus, though, will sit. They should have given it a new head, because that head is so Magnus, and the colors are so not. Still looks decent

    I don't usually dig on repaints so much of figures I've just recently gotten, but I really like Shadow Blade Megatron. Has an almost Galvatron vibe, but not quite, but I think it's just a really cool figure.

    Oddly enough, I collect Ultra Magnuses, but might pass on this one. Not sure yet.

    At first I thought I would get any repaint of the Magnus mold. However, I was pretty disapointed with his shoulder joints and how they're actually behind his shoulders. And, that redeco is just "ok", and "ok" for me doesn't warrant another $40+. Megatron does look really nice, I'll probably give in and get it when I see it on shelves.

    That image angle combined with the sheer badassery of RB UM makes him look like a God. Megatron is also badass beyond assbadery.

    I'm digging the Megatron, but as much as I like Roadbuster I'm not feeling the deco on Magnus. In carrier mode he looks like he should be hauling around produce or something. :/
