Wait, they werent the same size on the show?
Actually, I suspect the centerpiece will be a Megatron. Vangelus made a point about there only being so much you can do with Primal's design. Megatron on the other hand, could be amazing. Also, think about the fact TakaraTomy have almost never released a Primal without a Megatron. I'm guessing the BW stuff will start with Primal, and end with Megatron.
Megatron's beast head is almost the size of Primal's torso in that pic. I think that's pretty good evidence to suggest the contrary.
Also, moments before that very scene, Primal was riding Megatron's face. (yeah I mean it sounds weird but in-context... it was just as weird-looking)
But this MP isn't based off the toys. It's based off the show. They weren't equals in the show. (at least not size-wise, they were still pretty much equal strength)
Does anyone know what this news means? If there is going to be a whole new line with new molded toys or are they just repeating the old classics?
Rhinox, Dinobot and Megatron were all larger than Primal in the show. The exact sizes were never set in stone, but it's accepted that Primal wasn't as big.
But at the end of the day, they are still toys. I'd prefer to not have a Megatron that's an inch or two taller than Primal, but that's just my preference and others will see otherwise. But no matter the size, it'll still be buying it!
What are you, daft? Of course Megatron's taller than Primal, that's how it works. The villains need to be bigger and in greater numbers, that way the heroes look cooler when they win. If the villains are small, then the heroes are just bullies.
In the show, sure, make Megatron bigger than Primal. Though you must note that Optimus Prime and Megatron are depicted as the same height in the G1 cartoon.
But for toys, as display pieces, I'd prefer my two leaders to be the same size, just as the original toys were.
Telemocha Corahda, Archadis, Gimlet & Motorarm would like to have some words with you.
Hasbro did transmuate for the 10th anniversary. I don't think that can be topped....
I'd have to agree.
Not only does it look better, but it would also be paying homage to the King Kong vs. Godzilla approach of the original toys.
They'll probably just reissue the 10th anniversary figures...in new boxes and higher prices. They just issued Rhinox, waspinator, rattrap, and for Japan, deluxe Optimus Primal (I think). Only ones missing would be Cheetor, Black Arachnia, Tarantulas, Silverbolt, Dinobot, & Scorponok. I think the only way they may make it different is make some of them different sizes or add new characters.
So what's the purpose of having the Legends line then?
Sorry to the purists but , yeah, +1 to this!
They could definitely do that, has nothing to do with Beast Wars though. More like Alternators/Binaltech.
I don’t see this happening. I would love to, but I don't see it. I think they need to wait and see how Primal does first before they make the second BW-MP. They might do a new Voyager/Leader-class Megatron and advertise its "compatibility" with the MP like they did with LG-13 Megatron though.
I thought Primal and Megatron were about the same size in bot mode. I mean a good chunk of Megatron's alt mode is is tale which ends up as his arm (cannon). Likewise the head of the alt mode just ends up as the arm. Taking everything in the middle it's about the same amount of mass as Primal without his arms.
If they can take a chance on BW Primal, is BW Megatron really that much more of a risk? I don't think so, and they both help each other sell.
This is great. I don't expect Takara to do MP for the whole gang, but at least a Megatron to compliment Primal, yessss
And if they do any reissue, I was hoping for characters beyond the first seasons.
I think you are a bit out of the loop. Takara just issued Blackarachnia last year:

And while there was a deluxe prime issued exclusively at an expo, what you are referring to is a reissue of ULTRA Primal, which was a more standard release:
This toy is pretty cool. Its over 200 on e-bay, but I guess I'll just get the re-release hopoefully
what are you talking about? you could get him for 65$ or less.
