    They are on the site 'the-arker.com'.
    Lots of out of package shots of both figs.

    Jolt is okay, better than the previous FABs but still pretty simple, I won't be getting him though.

    I don't like Megatron's design still. Looks to be the same as he was previously only this time transforming into a tank. A good paint job would save this toy from mediocrity - all that molded detail on his chest and its completely painted silver. If he was repainted and was much more colorful with the molded details being highlighted by the paint then it would look a lot better. As it is, I just don't like Megatron's completely boring grey, silver and black color scheme he has here.

    Both aren't that bad, for FAB's, but neither will be getting into my collection. Personally I'll be waiting for a Voyager class version of Megs, and a Deluxe version of Jolt.

    I am loving megatron, bring out the leader classed figure already, these teasers of teasers are not enough :( 
    Jolt's got a stupid looking head/face....

    I'm not too sure who Jolt is...isn't he from the Armada series? And wasn't he a Decepticon???

    This Jolt is a completely new character.

    His name has been used before though.

    Originally a G2 Laser Rod Decepticon.

    Then the Mini-Con partner to Armada Hot Shot.

    Next a Mini-Con helicopter in Cybertron.

    Lastly a Decepticon repaint of Cybertron Crosswise for the previous movie toyline.

    I think Jolt should be good in Voyager or Deluxe and new Megatron should be in Leader Class.

    Out of these four, I am more interested in seeing what Optimus Prime looks like. Bumblebee barely registers on my radar.

    Is it just me, or does this Megatron only have one arm? Whatever the case, it looks oddly as though the photographer is deliberately trying to prevent us from getting a good look at that side of his body... :confused:

    Megatron's left arm is folded up behind the shoulder.

    In my opinion, Megs sucks. Looks the same as before. When the hell is he getting a normal alt mode?

    Jolt is OK I guess. It is a FAB, though.

    For an FAB (which I don't usually bother with) Jolt looks really nice. I'm not so sure about Megatron, though; and I'm hoping that his Leader Class toy doesn't suck this time.

    I realize its just a FAB, but the Tank mode suits Megatron well.

    UM sorry, but Megatron is far worse than the first time. IN TF at least there was a reason for no Earth mode.

    im lovin jolts design, not the toy but design, like how is chets is formed by the front bumper being all mutilated, and how all 4 wheels end up on his thighs, and his head, very traditional looking with the samari look, cant wait to see the actual art design for the character.
