    Wow! I want to know why "Generations" can't look this good anymore? God, I can't wait for this guy to get the upscaled KO treatment. Hasbro, you should have made this guy a Leader sized figure. smh

    WOW! Those feet suck!

    Still prefer to the Leader class with the UFO arm upgrade!

    My guess is they wanted to have a figure for each character that participated in the Forest Battle: Optimus, ROTF Megatron, Starscream, and Blackout/Grindor (they look the same anyway).

    Gimmicks.

    This is too perfect - ROTF VGR Megatron broke on me recently & he was my favorite version of Megatron (even with his hang glider cape), so this came @ just the right time.

    Love everything about this one & can't wait for this series to show up.

    If that's the same person then it's more of a middle finger than a thanks (the image will surface from somewhere else anyway).
    The best thing he can do is explain the blackened marks.

    Doing teaser-cliff hangers sucks.
    You have the source image, don't play with people's excitement.
    Just release it already (no teasers non-sense stuff) and you're a good guy.

    Well, of course, the mold will need to be modified. But I'm not anticipating an entirely new mold from scratch. But maybe they would. Who knows? Looking at the pics again though, I'd say he looks more like a CW Onslaught remold than TR Octane/Laser Op.

    Yep yep yep. To be honest, I probably wouldn't be interested in these figures if there wasn't the potential to recreate that scene. I think it's a swell idea.

    Thing is, it would take so much modifying that it would end up being a new mould to all intents and purposes anyway, especially as they’re now using the ILM models as the basis of the CAD files.

    Apart from exclusives like Mission to Cybertron Megatron which aren’t intended to be a screen accurate figure, I don’t think they’ve ever used an non-movie mould to make an onscreen movie character. They’re going for more accuracy in this line so starting from a totally unrelated mould doesn’t make a huge amount of sense.

    Crowbar’s remoulded from Berserker, but that’s because they have the same body type and alt mode; Ratchet looks like he might be remoulded from the DOTM deluxe, but it may just share engineering in the upper body; Optimus looks like he shares engineering with the Evasion voyager and the TLK voyager. Otherwise, it’s all new moulds in this line; even Stinger isn’t a remoulded of AOE Bumblebee, so them using figures from a non-movie line doesn’t seem likely, especially as the triple changing or combining gimmicks would be totally redundant on a movie Megatron figure.

    Well you're obviously a huge TF movie figure fan. I couldn't even begin to tell you who is molded from whom. But thanks for all the info anyway.

    His bot mode looks screen accurate and brings me back to the days when Hasbro gave a crap about their movie line. His alt mode still looks more like his concept art than the jet/tank hybrid he actually was. I wonder if he has collapsible wings.

    Is studio series Hasbro’s next main line after the Prime trilogy concludes?

    I'm hoping the odd bits on the inside of his feet come off as weapons, otherwise they got a lot of marks that surpass the old voyager (even spreading the feet treads). I wouldn't mind if the face is still front and center, but I hope they give us the option to tuck it away. (Seriously, that was so dumb; big armoured tank and he can still get shot in the face)

    Megatron looks very good........ but only from the knee-up. I didn't like the look of the tank tread feet look that makes Megatron look like he's wearing clown shoes. The lower leg also looks kinda skinny. I wonder if Megatron is just mistransformed in the image, but I doubt about that.

    If he's not mistransformed, I'm pretty sure I spy a hinge in his ankle that'd make it possible to move his feet upwards. So if that is the correct transformation, it looks like you can still mistransform him anyway to at least make him look a little better.
