    Not really a fan of these iterations of the characters, but the artwork is solid!

    Man those are sick! I would have purchased both of those in a heartbeat. Does anyone know if the megatron used the larger U.S. scale or the smaller japanese scale?

    i'm assuming the larger scale... it'd make more send to ship prime and megatron together and make them both the same box. i kinda like both paint schemes, a lot...maybe i'll get out some paints and make it happen...

    WST!

    It was too bad that the WST line died and never got to the states. That comes in second place after classics as my favorite line in the last ten years.

    Huh, so that's what the Prime repaint was supposed to look like? Interesting, but the all-black limbs kinda put me off of the concept. That, and also the fact I'm making an Energon Nemesis Prime kinda probably has something to do with it.

    That Megatron is awesome, though.

    They're both redecos of the US toys.

    I've collected all the photos of test shots I could find:

    According to Hasbro's website checklist, Prime was supposed to come with Smallest transformers Prime, and Megatron was supposed to come with Smallest Soundwave.

    That Optimus is a MUCH better iteration of the Energon character and mold. The color scheme actually works!

    not sure any paint can improve that Prime mold (the artwork is nice, but those testshots are lookin' pretty 'clownish'...) but the Megs is pretty sick. They should do the Voyager version up in those colors for a store exclusive sometime...

    I seem to remember people not being thrilled when the test shots of the toys showed up, funny to see them desirable now. I admit, I'd probably buy em too.

    Art is swanky.

    TF2 has the Lucky Draw if I'm not mistaken. Smaller version of the mold, red instead of green, different coloured face.

    The artwork looks pretty awesome, also considering the fact that I missed my chance to pick these two up.

    I found a gallery of the one you mentioned here:

    Transformers Super Link - Lucky Draw Black Galvatron At LuckyDrawTransformers.com

    However, I'm not sure if it's the larger or smaller version of the mold, for I own neither.

    Here, I found a gallery of a Armada Megatron that has a similar color scheme to the artwork.
