    Looks a bit weedy as others have said. But i have faith in FH to take constructive criticism from fans onboard and work to refine the design :) 

    Also,super annoying they ditched their G2 Megatron Tank that would have gone with their successful G2 Prime + repaints + trailer set, only to announce an Armada Megatron Tank to go with the unknown success of their unreleased Armada Prime :(

    Seconded.

    On another note, I like that this guy's tank treads are seperate from his shoulders, but still part of his silhouette.

    Looks good.

    I hope they can still be maneuvered eith the shoulders as that was a part of the design. They made smokestack placement optional, cant imagine this will be any differenr

    He looks pretty scrawny. He's supposed to be tough and buff so hopefully they'll fix that later on.

    Isn't Megs supposed to have a H design tank mode? I see more a G2 Megs in that one than Armada??

    I'm not a huge fan of Armada but they did have some interesting designs that may appeal more to me in MP form than the actual toy line that came out so I will be watching this one for sure but as everyone noted, this needs some work yet.

    I'm a big G1 fan, having had the movie on vhs when I was a kid (although it was several years old at that time already), and most of my collection leans in that direction currently, but Armada, Energon, and in some respects Cybertron (I was getting "too old/cool" for Transformers around that time) are the toys I grew up on. So glad that it looks like they may start getting some love!

    Megatron was one of my favorite toys too. I would personally prefer the H-shape. Never actually watched the cartoon, is that tank mode more of a cartoon over toy design? Or are they simply modernizing a bit?

    Otherwise, I'm digging the robot silhouette so far. And it looks like he may even have this extendable blade that the original toy featured!

    They're styling it. The cartoon was very toy accurate, so it's either accurate to the design or not, no G1y Toy v Cartoon accuracy debates to be had

    Then it will be in the powerlinx version, black Megatron and of course in the form of the exclusive Megazarak from Universe 2004

    Well wouldn't that be nice. Don't like megatrons green, don't worry, you got options. This'll be just fine...

    They already teased Jetfire and Overload, so I would expect those and Tidal Wave first

    I wonder if we will get a G2 Megatron from this?
