    In general yes, but in my experience of the Transformers Fandom... no.

    Never liked the rabbit ears, I prefer the face shield or for the head to be tucked away altogether. My original Armada Megs got his rabbit ears removed and I think he looks more serious. Even with the DX9 upgrade kit that had the armada horn options I still preferred the blunt head over silly chompy antennae.

    Just my preference, tho. To each their own.

    Side Swipe led to Wheeljack who is my second favorite Armada character, so that was cool

    So does Megazarak have ANY relation to Scorponok at all or is the Zarak name just an homage? The antlers and shape of the tank could very easily hint at some pre-beast Scorponok in some loose canon.

    According to TFWiki it looks like no relation. In fact the notes state that the character was meant to be a "Megatron" but Hasbro didn't let the collector's club use the character so they chose Megazarak as a replacement name.

    I don't know if it's the angle but... He looks really weedy. Isn't Armada Megs built like a brick?

    I think its cause his turret is angled to the side instead of up. But yeah, he does seem kind of super robotish. Makes sense though. This is fanshobby

    If they announce a hotshot next, I'm going to lose it.

    Screw Hotshot. Give me Tidal Wave or the Seekers, or Thrust/Dirge in his actual colors. Sideways too!

    As they say, it is a test shot, let's not forget how radically different Double Evil turned out from the original prototype. I'm sure the design will change after they get some feedback.

    Based on what Fans Hobby have shown the next after this is going to be Jetfire/Overload (those where the Armada names right?), for a combined form with Armada Prime, so if they are doing that you would image they'll be doing a TIDAL WAVE for combination with Megs. This looks good, when I get paid I'm going to drop the deposit on the Prime, just hope this doesn't impact the progress of their Masterforce focused range
