    Okay, this is just a teaser, but it's coming, I should receive it next week.

    -It's bigger than the other FABs (apparently about as big as Voyager Blackout!)
    -The alternate mode (cybertronian jet) is ugly
    -Robot mode definitely screams Megatron/Cryotek
    -Icy deco (icy blue/silverish gray) with a bunch of clear blue parts that reminds me of Cryotek (maybe it has something to do with Megatron being trapped in ice at the beginning of the movie?)
    -Appears to have better poseability than the other FABs, just like Prime (I guess they put extra efforts in the leaders)
    -Head bucket is blue-ish and face is black
    -Can fire a clear blue missile in jet mode
    -Missile on the left arm in robot mode
    -Has claws (3 per "hand")

    I will post pictures when I get it.

    You tease! Can't wait to see it.

    Are you sure its the FAB version at that size? There was a Voyager Megs in the leaked Habro toy list, IIRC.

    It's definitely not the Leader version (doesn't match the leaked pictures and definitely has no electronics), and it looks too simplified to be the Voyager version, looks like a flipchanger-sorta-bot to me, so I'm pretty sure it's the FAB version.

    Thanks for the info Megatroptimus. Looking forward to the pics. I find it odd that Hasbro would make FAB Megatron so much bigger than FAB Optimus. Maybe, he is Voyager Megatron and he is just that ugly and poorly done. I'm buying it either way. I get one of each mold, no matter what. Hastak looooooves me. ; )

    Definitely looking forward to seeing this; the "ice" theme sounds pretty cool.

    I forgot to mention that the head is partially visible in jet mode (on top of the jet, facing rear).

    Thanks for the info Megatroptimus, prior to this thread I wasn't even aware FAB Megatron was in the works. I'm also looking forward to the pics, and noticed that deluxe Bumblebee has been removed from your 'coming soon' list. I don't see any new threads for that guy, so did the deal for this toy fall through?

    Yeah, my seller broke the figure (I saw the pictures) when he was packing it... The front of the car wouldn't lock in properly because of that. Too bad because the deal was good ($30)...

    Thanks for the info, I'm looking forward to seeing this. If it is decent I may add this one to my collection instead of the $50 leader-sized eyesore.

    Don't count on it, it looks worse than Leader Megatron. I'm surprised you show interest in this particular Megatron when you seem to despise all the other movie toys.

    Just got another picture btw. It's shown in jet mode with Voyager Ironhide in truck mode and Megatron is longer and pretty much the same width if you don't count the wings. But then again, FAB Prime isn't much smaller than Ironhide in truck mode and Megatron is supposed to be bigger than Prime in the movie, so that kinda makes sense.
