    This is bad ass. The alt and robot mode look great and grisly! ... can not compliment this direction enough.

    This is just too cool. Megatron's really developing as a bad guy.

    Hmm... the bot mode is pretty badass, but I can't tell if it looks wonky because it's pre-production or the proportions are weird. Especially the head.

    Seems like Megs had quite an odd progression of alt modes though. But it's about time he got an Earth mode.

    I also like how the back section partially transforms into his fusion cannon...niceeee! Also, its really early in the toy image leaking process. Im sure there will be a leader class toy of this guy...like i said, just too early to definitively tell

    Im not so sure. I really like the legs, but the head and torso just look a bit off. It could be one of those things where you see it in person and its way better.

    After looking at these pics more, I think Megatron is going to team up with Prime to beat shockwave. I can so see Bay having two rigs fight the "NEW" badguy

    If this indeed DOES get leader class treatment, it will have to be something else. A leader class WITH trailer wouldent be in scale to reg leader classes. Same with Prime. If Prime gets leader treatment it'll be too big.

    I say the leader classes will come without trailers, and the voyagers will get trailers. kinda makes sense, OG prime would now fall in the voyager catagory. They wouldent just sell the trailers by themselves....Wonder how this is gunna work. Mabye megatron dosent have as big a screen presence, and he wont get leader class treatment.

    Makes me wonder how that'll work...

    Edit- Wasnt there a NEW class of toy for the new movie? could that work in somehow?

    Well, there'd better be a leader class. I'm a fan of the design, but not the figure. Proportions will put me off this Voyager though.

    When that rumor started back in September about that tanker truck is Megatron, I somewhat believed it.

    But I remember some were hoping it might be Motor Master.

    Well, the twins were ugly as sin, proving re-formatting doesn't include faces.

    The cloak makes his seem more clandestine, but then again, a 50-foot tall robotic killing machine would have a hard time being clandestine.

    You really want to get flammed on this thread........


    that being said i love the cape design it gives megs this whole stranger feel and i like it. head looks a little wonky but it could grow on me, has a mixmaster feel to it and that is pretty good....considering he had quite a good mold imho.

    Megatron it is then. Edit: seen the Robot mode and i like it. Seem to be simpler Transformation then ROTF Leader Class Prime. which to me at least is a good thing.

    That thing is not big enough to be a leader class.

    1. Megatron? WTF? So much for "No more disguises..."

    Not to mention, that truck totally looks smaller than Prime's, and Megs is supposed to be bigger than Prime.

    2. If that's the Leader class toy, so much for everyone hoping to finally get a good one for the 3rd movie. I personally think it looks terrible.
