We've had a few looks at this image already so please excuse this third post about the official imagery of Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megatron. Here for you now is a clear, good resolution official image of the new Megatron, showing off his look most clearly. Of interest is that he seems to have a unique faction symbol - possibly something or nothing, but worth mentioning for those curious.

Check out the official image, released by Hasbro, at the left of this story.

Personally, I think he looks awesome.
General Tekno
GORGEOUS. Very Sharkticon.

Would be a GREAT Sky-Byte repaint, too.
Shatterpoint
...Is that a Decepticon badge with shark jaws he has on him?

All of my monies.
Noideaforaname
Like Crock-Out, this is so ridiculous it's awesome.

I want a better look at that insignia.
The F.N.G.
Anyone else loving that fishy rifle-blade?

Classics Gnaw. Thats what this is and I WILL own it.

Damn it.


-ZacWilliam, I wish I could over feed it cookies though. It's wonderful, but chubby would be perfect.

I've passed on all the BH existing-character remolds (despite liking a few of them), but I think I have to get this. It's just too wacky and weird to pass up, and I'm a sucker for that classic late-G1 grey-purple-teal color palette. I have no idea where he'll fit in my collection, but I'll find a place.
bellpeppers
Umm....
Zambot
Ahh man! Thanks for the higher rez pic.

YUP! This thing is frickin' funkified fresh!! Love it!
ZacWilliam
This is the first large Megatron toy I've really had any interest in buying since the original Classics Megs years ago.

Granted it's not going to be Megs to me for a single moment, but damn if it isn't an AWESOME Sharkticon.


-ZacWilliam, I almost wish it wasn't so awesome. I don't need more toys to buy.
Matt_M
I like it! Probably my favorite Beast Hunters toy so far.
Optimist_Prime
I actually really like this.
AMG
This is like Beast Wars Injector to me. It's so bad that it's good. This thing looks awful, but I want to own it because it looks like a freak.
Anguirus
^ That's how you know Hasbro's really got you by the balls.

(I'm not saying I disagree.)
CybertronianFan
Not sold on this one. Sadly this will be the 3rd incarnation of Megatron that doesn't do it for me.
combaticon164
I actually like it..............I do lol
moreprimeland
Well....it's my kind of colors.
9.8m/s^2
This might be one where I remove the robot head and let the robot chest be an actual face...
Niv3k
Uhmmmm.... nope.
a person
That's pretty darn cool looking. Hopefully it still looks good without all the photoshop enhancements.

The only problem I have had with the megatron mold is the that the gun arm is really weak and the gun is really heavy, so every time i pose his arm straight out like he is firing, it just falls from the weight of it. Damn you megatron for being such a badass and holding the biggest weapons.

RID Megatron: Giant fusion cannon

Final Battle Megatron: Giant sword

Sharkticon Megatron: Giant fusion cannon, gun sword, fish?
Ripclaw
That alt. mode, I think it's gonna give me nightmares...... Thank god I'm not sleeping tonight!
Triggerhappy
New faction symbol alert!

Yeah his hips suck as well.

With all the remolding done to this guy you would think they would've at least improved the hip and shoulder joints so he can hold a pose other than "floppy mess" while standing on the shelf.

That being said I preordered him when he first went up on BBTS.
AngryChad
Maybe if it had a different head.
Smasher
I don't' know why I don't think this is just hideous.
I mean, it is hideous, but I love it.
TF FOC Autobots
Very bizaar but yet, extraordinary Megatron!
prime326
yes please
Grimlock_13
I...like this way more than I should.

I bet non photoshopped pics are going to surface and it will be grey. Of course then everyone will bitch because its the grey plastic they hate. Mark my words.
Ash from Carolina
I don't think I could add it to my collection as Megatron, but darn with the crazy design and kind of Seacon colors I want to add this figure even if I don't call him Megatron. Some times crazy and Transformers doesn't work but when it does it's crazy good.
BB Shockwave
"Sharkitron, Sharkitron,
Half shark, half Megatron.
Can he swim, bite off a leg?
'Course he can, he's a shark.
Look ooooout... Here comes Sharkitron!"


To be frank, he looks more like some Zerg flying unit (Guardian, were they called?) than any fish I have seen in my life.
orangeitis
Jawesome. Buy-on-sight.
World Prime
Like others have said, this is just so hilarious and weird it ends up being awesome. I really hope the actual production colors are dark like they are here.
Sideways77
Okay, now I see it as grey. The original pics made him look brown.

Still not buying it.
Ratchets Hatch
Sushi Megatron in HD.

Army builder!!!

Getting a feeling some people are not getting the reference. Which is fine, since people at mass retail are going to be confused as well.

I like that the Jet can bite you and all the bright colors are there. The new gun no longer has a light up function, Hopefully if they go with a mechtech extending blade idea they will engineer the ability to lock it.

What if Prime megatron got thrown into space and fell as a meteorite onto quintessa. Forced to do battle in the sharticon pit. rebuilding himself from the remains of those terrible lifeforms the sharticons. One day he will overwhelm the quintesson masters in a horrific fashion, then return for revenge on the predacons with a sharkticon army in tow.

Even when these concepts never surface in the actual series, the retools leave equal inspiration for fan service and fan fiction.

Is that green symbol on the wing from Galaga? Lol

Sure, though I always thought there were direct connections between the seacons and sharkticons. Like another species do to the similar physiology to their alt modes.

You have refined gaming taste sir.

I have no plans to pick up BH toys despite liking a few of them. A continuation of my Prime policy. However this is just so freaky that I might budge if I find it on sale and it kept those funky dark colors... Megasharktitron! Someone needs to make a Megasharktitron Vs.... series with this toy.
dovianax
I... I don't even...

Fuck! I give up. I'll get him.
NemiMonkey
I can't deny it, I really like him despite that creepy head. Something about it just isn't right. I dunno maybe Dr. Wu or somebody else will make a new one. Aside from that me hearts him so.

Oh hey someone mentioned SC.


I don't really see it. He's got too much of an angler fish look to him for me to say he resembles a Guardian or even their little brother the Broodlord.

I was going to say Space Invaders, but either works for me.

This for the win. In fact it's more Sky-Byte than it is Megatron, it needs a repaint.
SPLIT LIP
I wish the teeth were painted silver, but yeah he looks great.
KnightHawkke
Would buy it on sight, if I were to ever see it.
Paradigm-Shift Prime

Wonder what it's actually going to look like.

(Obviously looks better colored than the green prototype)
Prime Jetscream
...
His main color is black?
ACTUAL BLACK?

WHY IS THAT SO AWESOME
