    They should not waste their time. Looks horrible IMHO.

    What's really funny is that all of these upstart 3rd party companies are fighting over different versions of a "new" Megatron, when a brand new Takara MP Megatron will probably be released next year. I know, different scales/lines, but still...

    These guys are definitely skilled, but they need to be a bit more creative instead of copying this guy, who's copying that guy, who's copying this guy, who's copying Hasbro, etc.

    Having said that, give it a different head and a brown/black paint job, and I'd gladly take it as Browning.

    I'd appreciate if they make the Animated Marauder Megatron & Alternators Abrams Megatron canceled toys into reality.

    But bajilion versions of G1-inspired Megs? Pffftttt..

    This was posted in the art forum here about a week back. The artist didn't give any indication he was looking to produce it, it's just a 3D render.

    Ok, if that is based off of my favorite little Walther P22, then I may just have to get it. He would be the first Megs I own displayed in alt mode. Kinda cool.

    That.


    Although i thought it had potential to make an interesting toy.



    Or if you support the idea 3rd parties have direct access to knowledge about what Takara are doing.... through factory info leaks, all these 3rd party megatrons are popping up all of a sudden because a new Masterpiece Megatron is getting closer, and they're going for the cash grab before it's announced.

    That actually looks sort of cool. I'm no fan of the hips, but I like the rest of it. I want to see this in its final colors.

    I saw this and literally face palmed. Although if this does end up on the production floor it looks a lot better/cleaner then some of the other designs. Still pretty cool, if my heart wasn't set on Hegemon this guy would of done it for me.

    You know, if I got this, with a little tweaking with the head, this could be considered a version of Browning -

    Also, who the hell keeps smashing the make megatron button? Like others have said there has to be a reason we've seen 4 different potential megatron molds in a very short amount of time.

    People complain about the lack of gun megs and when they come people complain about too many. With HasTak pretty much giving the vibe that the gun stuff is done I'd think more people would be happy.
