    Very, VERY odd. The repaint shown at Botcon clearly has the standard mode head, unlike the 'crown' of the original. Wonder what's going on here. Sorry if this has been pointed out already, BTW.

    Compare it to the Best Buy version and you'll see what I mean:

    hm...good eye there. It seems they might release it with the original head? I dont see why a new version would have the old head, especially since the paint scheme is the premium one.

    Didn't they use the original concept head design for the "pre-Decepticon" Megatron in the Defiance comics?

    Perhaps this toy will represent Megatron before he started following the Fallen?

    I like that paint job way better. I'm tempted to pick him up.

    Yes, but why would they use that to promote this new figure, even giving it a completely different colorscheme? Why not just take a testshot from the actual TF1 figure and repaint that? Doesn't make much sense....

    Only another reason to pick the 2 pack up.
