    Will get a full shoot done tomorrow, was hoping to tonight as I got them picked up for me but I got caught at work till 9 so I'm really tired. Sorry for just posting the links but I do because of the auto-pic shrinkage.

    looks like a neat toy aside from the horrid colors

    That guy could really use a "Robovision" version with more silver paint. :)

    The alt mode looks much cleaner than what i've been seeing, interesting.

    Is there no ankle articulation? I wasn't planning on buying him anyway, but ankle articulation makes a big difference in the feel of the figure...

    I really, really like Megatron. Call me a nut, but I think the reddish and bluish colors work. I'd like silver on him, especially as he seems to be missing something in the chest area, but other then that I'm sold. I hope stores near me have him on the 2nd. The alt mode... meh, not thrilled but it's not awful. It might look better in person, I'm thinking. My transformers never spend much time in alt mode so it's no big deal to me.

    Wow. I think he looks GREAT. Your pictures are high enough quality for me to see that the blue paint apps are (IMO) well-executed. And I'm lovin' the black and gold bits.

    The cardboard insert being essentially the same color as most of his body certainly doesn't do him any favors while in the box, does it?

    Wow, he looks a lot better than I was expecting. Even though his alt mode seems like nothing more than him laying down on all fours, it seems pretty cool as an alien jet. I can't wait to get my hands on this figure.

    rubbing alchohol and a Q-tip takes any and all paint off transformers.

    I like the blue, but it looks really out of place with there not being any on his chest. It makes his chest look really, really boring, and just disrupts the flow of the entire figure.

    Seriously, he's cool and all, but what a horribly boring chest. It's like they didn't even bother. Same with his wings and tail, the latter moreso because it has details.

    I'm sure I'll pick him up eventually, but I'd prefer if, like Josh said, he was all silver. Still, I'm looking forward to the shoot. The weekend can't get here soon enough, and then I can stop drooling all over my keyboard and actually *buy* some of these toys.

    Why don't you post that stuff in the Feedback forum? The pics look very promising. Too bad about the ankles though... I still dig the skeleton-like look, I for one like the chest area.

    I don't know, without the blue, he would look too plain.

    That head sculpt is fantastic! Also nice to see his neato fussion cannon, his chain whip arm sounds like fun!

    Can't wait for mine to arrive!

    I don't mind the blue, though the red puts me off a little (but as it lights up I'll probably forgive it!).
    And the "chain whip", is that what's he's swinging in the trailer or is a toy thing? Vehicle piccies please!

    That's what he's doing in the trailer.

    I almost thought you were talking about Voyager Megatron with all the ice covering him.

    Could you please do a comparison shot with Leader Prime (if you have him handy)? I'd like to see how they measure up size-wise.

    Yech. I'm just not a fan of this toy. I kept examining the pictures, seeing if I saw something of interest or something that jumped out at me as "that's neat," but...naw. Colors are too garish, the design is awkward and, honestly, he looks like he stepped out of an episode of Beast Machines. No thanks.
