    Just saw these http://www.the-arker.com/bbs2/dispbbs.asp?boardid=10&id=129&star=1&page=1

    Looks really good for a FAB, though I'll be waiting for the inevitable Deluxe class figure. Prime and Megs look good too, though I'll be getting the larger (most likely Leader, or Voyager) figures of them. As for Bumblebee, I'm happy with the one I have, so there is little chance I'll be getting any of the RotF BB's we'll be seeing.

    Jolt the Volt? :rolleyes: 

    Lashing whips? I wonder if we get to see that action in the movie?

    We've already seen the back of the package(and therefore the bio), but the other pics are knew.

    Just because he's getting toys, doesn't mean he is in the movie. Plenty of non-movie toys got released for the first movie.

    Both were repaints. As far as we know all of the RotF Megatron figures will be all new molds. If he is getting a Leader class figure (I would call it a fact, but it hasn't been confirmed yet) is the reason I think he'll show up at some point in the movie, even if for a short time towards the end. We won't truly know till we actually see the movie, so anything till then is pretty much just speculation.

    C'mon, he's Megatron! Not any old TF, but the biggest bad of them all.

    Also, if he's not in the Movie, why the Movie concepts that surfaced at the end of last year? The concept work is proof alone that he is showing up to my eyes. You wouldn't put that much work in if you were not going to use him.

    QFT! There is no way they would put that much effort into that if he wasn't going to be in the movie.

    Hey, both Arcee and Wreckage had concept art and didn't make it into the first movie.

    Bay was doing a lot of pre-produciton work on this film during the writer's strike. Plans might've changed once the writers showed up, or maybe Bay just changed his mind at some point.

    I say it's even odds Megs is not in the film.

    Jolt looks neat for a FAB. Can't wait to see the Deluxe toy.

    Well we had that first Megatron pic show up awhile ago.
    Then the revised version of the design showed up just a little while ago with Ravage.

    So it's obvious they didn't just abandon it.

    There was lots of concept art for Arcee, too.

    I'm just saying I wouldn't be surprised either way.

    It's all part of Michael Bay's AWESOME™ misinformation campaign.

    There's an important difference, though-- they had early HAND-DRAWN concept art. We've seen Megatron in what is clearly a CGI publicity still, like the stills used for the Movie calendars and various other paraphernalia, for example. He's in the movie, of that I have no doubt.

    Gotta say that both Prime and Megs look pretty good to be "just" FABs. If I didn't have context for the pics, I'd think those two are deluxes.

    Honestly with how big the 1st movie was they took it and stepped it up like 20 notches as far as design and overall toy quality from what we've seen so far, I mean the scouts are freaking awesome the FABs actually look like a character instead of a piece of deformed plastic. This Movie is Freaking awesome its going to:bay : the 1st one up
