    SS seems to really be stretching what it means to be a retool so far.

    TLK Bee-SS Bee, Berserker-Crowbar, Drift-Dropkick, and now Shockwave-Megatron. Wouldn’t complain though, since they look so distinct and are pretty much 95% new molds.

    Nothing wrong with an involved transformation, still one of the figures I can't help flipping back and forth!

    Or, like Shockwave; a heavily retooled upscale for him and Grindor.

    What I love about Shockwave is that it looks like his cannon can slide in and out, to recreate his entrance to the Battle of Chicago.

    I think Shockwave uses some ROTF Megs parts to make a much more cohesive tank mode.
    However, there's still the possibility these are mock ups, (like their devastator).

    Not sure about why they have 07 Megatron like that though.

    Has anyone considered the possibility on a restriction of the ILM files for Hasbro to use?.

    What's the big difference between Berserker and Crowbar? I thought it was just a new head

    A lot. They only share a torso pretty much.

    Wooow. Scavenger is ginormous!!! I love how stable he looks, by making the lower wheel be flatter and wide, he seems to be able to stand well.
    I dare say this Megatron looks better than the MP. His face looks more humanoid and less based on the early movie design with all the weird copper-colored lines and wires. Also, no obvious robot head sticking out in plane mode.
    Shocky I was never a fan of, he looks like a cyclops Lord Zedd. Seems similar to the old Voyager but more movie accurate. Tank mode still as nondescript as ever. I love how they included Shocky\'s greatest weakness - sheets. Just cover him with a parachute and he becomes completely harmless! :D 
    Mixmaster is more simplified and streamlined than that horribly complex RotF toy. I like how the mixer drum shell quadrats end up on the shoulders, not on the upper arms, looks better. The cab being on his back likely means that\'s where Devs\' head is hidden, like in the Legends toy.

    I just realized what's irking me about Mixmaster. His vehicle mode sides arent silver and he lacks that apparatus at the front of his mixer! Probably could fix both of those with some paint and a 3d printer tbh.

    Also, 53 - Mixmaster, 54 - Megatron, 55 - Scavengar, 56 - Shockwave :p

    Even the chest is really different. I tried swapping the two and nothing lines up of matches

    Yeah I looked at the treads, and aside from the fact that they are treads and therefore look like treads, I couldn’t match any of the exact details to Megatron’s treads. The screwholes don’t even match up.

    Well... Shit.

    I better start buying these. Since these have been hit and miss I've decided only to buy characters that pair well. DotM Optimus is a must and now we have 07 Megatron who is somehow so much better than the MP version. All he needed was a clean back - and look at that beauty.

    More Constructicons with Demolisher looking amazing. And Shockwave... Just alone he's gorgeous, but you get Wheelie, Brains AND a parachute soldier?

    You know. I still remember when shockwave was first announced. Another board member assumed, leader class shockwave. Then shortly after the dotm line was cancelled. There was an interview saying Hasbro did have plans for a leader class shockwave, but was scrapped due to low popularity of decepticons. Well there you go.
