You... haven't been around the 3P forum lately in a while, have you?
I'm hesitant to get excited about anything dragon-like since being burned by the BH Ultimate Predaking. That thing was a mess with the stupid neck gimmick and fall-off wings.
Still, I'm a sucker for beast-formers, and dragons in particular, so I'll hold some excitement for something good.
Megatron looks pretty good there, though the design screams Voyager class with the hollow undersides of the feet beneath the wings. I'd prefer a voyager anyway, so if official, I like it.
The picture does indeed show what appears to be a repaint of the Voyager Grimlock, but aside from that, the rest is nondescript blurry, jagged mess.
I am never around that place as I don't care for TP stuff, but TFW2005 frontpages every new Third party toy reveal, so I know what is new.
Yes, and HOW would a third party company know what he transforms into, hmm? Or what his friggin BACK looks like? Geez, get real. They will not make third party stuff for an upcoming movie without knowing what the characters look like. When did that ever happen? They haven't even made stuff that people wanted since 2007, like that leader sized Bonecrusher. There isn't much of a market for movie toys anyway compared to Masterpieces and G1-wannabees amongst third party stuff, if the news I see on TFW2005 are any indication. I see new Devastators and Sixshots every week, and we have like 3 types of Masterpiece Dinobots...
So yeah, this is the new megs
The head is out and about at the sturn
Kind of has a Universe Cyclonus vibe going on with some of the transformation elements.
Why the blue and silver in the wrong places on that Optimus, Hasbro? Whhhyyyyyy?!
There's actually a couple companies making movie accurate figures and improving old ones.
Tell me where Hasbro and 3rd party factories are located then where these leaks emerge and repeat what you just said, again.
Hahaha, no they don't.
The stuff that is front paged is barely the tip of the iceberg.
There's too much to front page it all. Seriously.
Yeah, it's all G1 or WFC/FOC (ugh) models. I haven't seen any real progress on 3P movie figures other than Wei Jiang. Can you point out some examples?

Well well, there's our dragon.
Now all I'd like is a name, hopefully during the toy fair we get something.
Yeah, I can see that too. Also kind of reminds me of TFP voyager Megatron with where the legs and arms end up in the jet mode
Looks very gimmicky. Heck, it has a handle. Those rear legs are way too close to the BH Predaking for me to be excited.
It's basically the same thing as the AOE Stomp and Chomp Grimlock. Probably transforms when you hold it vertical. Roar and Lights when you lean forward/press the button.
This guy looks like he came straight out of Generations
