    Yeah, i'm assuming that Hasbro was pretty heavily restricted in the color pallette they could use with him being a gun and all. The mold itself is sick as hell. Screamer and Prime just made me shed a tear of joy.

    Agreed...liking the mold very much indeed, though! Especially the fact that he's got an insignia - when you've got a bloody great arm cannon, who needs rubsigns? :D 

    EDIT: Can see him getting fan repaints left right and centre, though - waiting for the first digibash... ;)

    Loving Megatron, but pity about the orange tips.
    The transformation is genius

    Oh the tears of joy after long last, lol. Megatron as a gun... Rodimus update with so few changes... Astrotrain, Prime, and Starscream are gold.

    Now I want to see my bumblebee....

    <sigh> - Now I need to figure out if there's any possible way for me to just buy a few of them, and not all.

    Wow, Megatron looks hawter than I thought he looked at Botcon. I personally like his new colors better than the boring ol' silver and black.

    Megatron is pretty sweet, the green is a little off, but its a relief that his cannon is on the back of his arm rather than BEING his arm so I can live with this.

    I'm glad all of these guys are going to be low priced cos I'm gonna have to get the lot!!

    Yep Meg's will be getting some paint app's asap (well as soon as I get him in my hot little hands)

    Cool mold though, awesome to see him as a gun again.

    Megatron looks great! Only the orange looks bad, IMO, but i can easily deal with that. Finally, Megatron is a gun again. YAY!

    Hasbro doesn't have as much freedom with Megatron's colors as I'm sure they'd like, toy guns along with the orange tips are also required by law to include some weird, stand-out colors so police know from a distance that the gun is a toy. You'll notice that the translucent green is all shell in robot mode so they didn't need to include it for the design of the toy, but there it is. It's good that they designed it so the robot mode doesn't include the green color, being back shell makes it seperate from the toy somewhat. Not to say I'm happy with it, I'd love that purple to be grey and some of that gold to be red. But the bucket head is there, he's a gun, he has an arm cannon made from his scope... I'm happy.

    I think it's also interesting that they reposed Starscream and Hot Rod... or Rodimus, if we HAVE to deal with copyrights...

    Thanks to Hasbro's news post, it seems we now know who will be in the exclusive pictures in the Fan Club Magazine. Not that this news makes me any less excited about the next issue of the mag.

    Gun does look like a NERF gun. But the bot mode looks like it can kick ALL sorts of ass!! Mostly due to that HUGE fusion cannon!! :D

    Beautiful, they all look great and worth buying.

    Some of the colours on Megatron are a bit werid, but I can accept that for such an awesome mold.

    Some of the pics are different poses from the ones yesterday but not drastically.

    Megatron's gun mode is hot. I really like the coloring on it. Alas, I'm not as fond of the way the colors turned out in bot mode. A big too much of the translucent green on his wings. I would have preferred that to remain an accent. It still looks pretty good, and they did a great job coming up with a transformation that works as a gun but still has passable articulation in robot mode.
