Prime Beast Hunters Megatron First Images

By way of Collecticon, we have our first look at Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Megatron. Beast Hunters Megatron as perhaps we had anticipated is a remolded version of the previous Voyager toy, with a new weapon and extensive remolding for his "Hunter" armor. These images are of a mold-test prototype, which helpfully means we get a good look at what has been changed from the base figure. New / remolded parts include:
  • New remolded head, more menacing face.
  • New shoulders, spikier and more detailed.
  • New forearms, with fins at the wrists. The fins regrettably mean that the new gun needs an overlong handle to attach to the arm.
  • New lower legs / wings.
  • The clear purple section, which mounted the fusion cannon in vehicle mode on the first version of the mold, is enlarged and fills out the back more and we assume by extension also hides the arms in vehicle mode more.
  • New chest, which bears a slight passing resemblance to the beast mode head of Generation 1 Seacon Skalor.
  • The overall toy seems to have a fish theme going on with all the fins. The new weapon also keeps the fish theme going, and from what we can gather from the photos, the new gun appears to have a few sliding / folding parts as though it might actually transform into a sword.


If previous reports are correct, Megatron here will be the lone new toy in Beast Hunters Voyager Wave 4. Check out the pictures of him for an advance look at the latest incarnation of the leader of the Decepticons.

Why hello, Prime Depth Charge

Cool remold and weapon.

Hmmmmm

I know those aren't the final colors, but it kind of works. Crazy molds need crazy colors. As with all things Beat Hunters though, this is an easy pass for me.

Ewwww.

So much for Hardshell.
SPLIT LIP
I mean, for what it is, it looks cool I guess. The retooled bits are nice and the motif looks like it would transition to vehicle. The gun is what the hell, but if it was handheld I bet it'd look better. It's too chunky as an arm cannon, but as a GOW style rifle/machine gun it works. Albeit fishy. Looks like maybe it folds into a sword. Just hope it locks. If the final colours are good and the shoulderpads can sit better than the original voyager I may be interested.

Head looks nice. Movie movie-like which is an improvement over his old one.
Hot Shot.
Wow. Er. Uh. Huh.

At least the head looks good...?
Robogeek28
I kinda like it, but not as Megatron.
Mako Crab
Repaint him as Bishamon from Darkstalkers.
SPLIT LIP
It doesn't really make a good Prime Megatron, but much in the same way as BH Optimus it looks like a much better "generic" Megatron.
NemiMonkey
Oh my gosh he skinned skalor.........you bastard!

Well ummm okay then. He looks pretty cool with the armor and all that, but the head. I don't even know what to make of it. For reasons though that are beyond me it creeps me out.

Plus his weapon seems odd. It's like a giant fish cannon that turns into a bladed chainsaw type weapon. Doubt it locks, but one can always hope.
Metroplex79
Not enough spikes over his body.
Gryph
This is what the new Botshots Megatron from the Dragon Track is based on. Which means his primary color will likely be purple. Hopefully it'll be in actual Galvatron colors.

With all that remolding that was done to the mold it's a shame they didn't get rid of the balljoints at the shoulders and hips. Those just make this guy a future floppy mess like my old RID one turned out to be.
Sharktibolt
I can only assume it's test shot colors, I'm hoping this isn't a final thing.

You would be correct.
agentSAP2006
Too bad Megatron didn't get a new mold like Prime did, but I'll wait and see what the final toy looks like.
Weitat1988
SKIP!!

Oh yeah, just noticed the 'prototype' in the link. Makes me happy and lets me look forward to the official colors.
Gryph
Looking at the weapon, I don't believe that's how the gun is supposed to plug into the arm. There's a peg on each side of it, directly in front of the handle. I think that's where you're supposed to do it.
TinManA.H.
I'm sure it's been mentioned in one of the Beast Hunter's posts - but it really feels like they're catering this line to being used as a future Botcon Beast Wars revisited line?
(or maybe it's just Hasbro's way of throwing the old fans of Beast Wars a nod and wink?)

Damn so much for a real hardshell

SEACON.

I second the whole "aww no Hardshell" that said, but this is a neat enough remold.
Lbsammills51
I'd rather see Hardshell...but this is amusing and those test shot colors actually work. I wonder what the final colors will be.
ex dtw2003
Sooo.....back to Mech Tech????
Reflector Prime
ha ha well beast hunters continue to suck!
Jonny Napalm
Coelacanth cannon! That's ace.

I'm suspecting it's an unpainted sample, actually. The BH figures have been doing a TON of homaging of older concepts - turning Megatron into a Seacon would be a good example of this.
Weremole
I love this. Come on, stabby fish cannon! Fish plane!
Noideaforaname
Wow, the beast head looks especially Beast Wars-esque. Can't wait to see how it looks transformed.
Ceerad
I can't wait to see what kind of whacked out alt mode this makes.
Smokescreen
Looks interesting. Maybe he'll turn into a sharkticon.
Ra88
This is really cool, but it also makes me really worried about that Grimlock BW Megatron remold...
Digilaut
Looks okay, I guess, but I'm wondering how well this one will sell. Everywhere I go I see the RID Megatron shelfwarming, and this one just doesn't look as different as some of the other retools do. Let's see what they do with the colors first, though.

Why?

How so?

This looks pretty cool.
Anguirus
So much for him getting upgraded in the show.

Unfortunately this just isn't a very fun base mold. Should have been Hardshell

It is. They said there was going to be one more Voyager, and this is unfortunately it.


Grimwing could've been a Deluxe, and his Voyager spot could've gone to Hardshell.

Welcome to Seacons, Megatron!

It looks extremely cool but it'd suck if the 'big exciting BW figure' reveal was that remold after all.

Bummer, now I'm depressed.

Ahhhh, gotcha.
HeroicC300
Anyone else going to (attempt to) repaint the shit out of this mold to make it Seacon colored?
Nope
Finally...Generations Skalor!

The head sculpt looks great. The Sharkticon face on his chest doesn't.
PlanckEpoch
....STILL no bicep swivel?! What a fucking joke.

I think Hasbro said six BH Voyagers?

-Prime
-Predaking
-Shockwave
-Magnus
-Grimwing
-Megatron

Floaty shoulders are still a horrible design aspect, but I'm liking the remolded parts.
Not enough to not be disappointed in the lack of a Hardshell, though.
