    Thought the Marauder Megs mold would look good as a straight up repaint as Galvatron.

    That is so golden. Animated's biggest failure was not getting around to this guy in some fashion. It aggravates me when Hasbro can't go forward on this when they keep repainting ROTF Mudflap. :puke:

    Repaints are not equivalent to new molds. At all.

    Marauder Megatron was cancelled because the show was cancelled. Not because Tuner Mudflap exists.

    Yeah,CN is the true evil there,not Hasbro's Repainting Quota' (which if you think about it it isnt really a EVIL then just a minor annoyance to most,to me its just a second chancer.) just hope takara gets their mitts to the mold,it would be badass. but then again i might doubt it.

    True, but...the show/toy line was canceled because more effort and money was being poured into the movie stuff...and thus a spider web-thin thread does connect the demise of Animated to Tuner Mudflap. Hey...I'm not saying my logic is flawless... :)

    i hate it when hasbro just makes repaints instead of giving important charecters the love they deserve. also , this is the cybertronian megaton we should have got instead of the space roach

    Amazing that this nearly universally praised mold is not produced.

    It's CN's fault. They could've continued Animated, Hasbro just would be that focused on it. The mold got cancelled, and I doubt Takara will get it, because even if they did it wouldn't represent anything from the show unless new episodes got made. It's a darn shame.

    Anyways, AWESOME repaint work here, I love it.

    The fact that this mold will never see the light of day beyond the prototype stage is a freaking travesy.

    Great work with the digibash, by the way.

    HERE'S AN IDEA:

    Why don't we all petition FansProject to mass produce Animated Marauder Megatron! :rolleyes: 

    After all, they did a great job with City Commander (Ultra Magnus upgrade), Warbot (Springer), and the upcoming Crossfire Explorer & Minitioner figures, why not with this! :cool: 

    Not to mention that FansProject can make a truck-load of cold, hard cash selling this! :thumb

    That's not possible. Hasbro probably has a copyright on the design. If FP produces this, a lawsuit will most likely follow.

    shame we won't get themold

    the jet looks like Gigatron (rid megatron) to me

    Also animated isn't cancelled because of CN, it's because animated was a joint CN/Hasbro venture and Hasbro has decided to create it's own channel with discovery, hence the end of the deal and the demise of animated, crying shame the bayformersesc designs for Prime are a real turnoff.

    I'm just glad we got 3 seasons of animated tbh rather than just the two.
