    This figure looks amazing. Him and MMC's Overlord are on the top of the list right now.


    The War for Cybertron Megatron is the best deluxe Megatron imo. There is the old classics deluxe one that turns into an earth based tank. But the WFC just has a good presence despite him only being deluxe height.

    This is kinda neat, but it is not for me.

    Agreed, it's one of the few figs from the FoC/WfC line HasTak did a good job at. Good presence is an understatement :)

    I never liked the Classics Deluxe Megatron. For a toy so bland its surprising now many times they tried to release it. Even as kid I didn't like it.

    More pix posted on FB by a member of HK-TF from some MT event in Asia

    he looks TERRIFIC painted

    However . . .

    Seeing that prototype's head, it evokes alot of Galvatron to me. Like it would only need extending some horns and BOOM there it is

    Has anyone photochopped this into Galvy?

    Looking good! I assume the first three photos are of a test shot without the final colours and the last photo is what he will look like when finished? :) 

    I would also love to see a Galvatron version of this, I think a purple colour scheme with an orange gem and highlights would look amazing on this mould.

    The head is actually the one thing I wasn't keen on when I had him in hand. It's great for an evil tyrant but just seems a bit too twisted for a Megatron. My friend did mention that with a new head he'd make a terrific IDW Megatron.

    I like the idea of Matrix-Megatron.

    The rumored Decepticon Matrix is real!


    I guess the Quints weren't lying after all.

    Not to sure about the head sculpt. The initial gray prototypes looked good but now under better lighting and in color it just seems. . . Odd. I know it's a completely new design and the head needs to be different but something about the new panels and crest aren't doing it for me. The rest of the figure though looms fantastic!

    I love it. And the inclusion of a Decepticon Matrix is a neat touch (but makes me sad Manus didn't get one outside of the sculpted chest detailing. Maybe the Powermaster Prime will have one?).
    But yeah. Very cool. Really diggin' that headsculpt, sword... Pretty much everything. This is the Megatron I've been waiting to have in my collection since I got Classics Prime way back when.

    It is a very manga design, sharp angles and multiple triangular points and whatnot. I think it suits the overall design just fine myself.

    And my god does this guy look amazing in color finally.

    My issue now is that the facial lines look more muddled on this sample than the initial prototype shots, and I hate to say it's a really big let down. Also seems like something of a cop out that Despotron gets a full matrix chamber while Manus doesn't. I'm glad it's removable though, but can the external chest crystal be removed as well?

    Doesn't look like it.
    Personally, I don't mind. I really think it'll look cool with a transparent-backed Decepticon symbol over it.

    Seems the outer triangular gem is hard molded to the grey middle piece if not glued in place while the matrix itself is separate.

    Also we live in an era where Starscream runs Cybertron, Optimus has gone in to self exile and Megatron is a reformed autobot leader. So imo a version of him wielding the matrix makes perfect sense these days. Heck maybe in this continuity the matrix was corrupted and seized by him or he merely possess a dark matrix while prime has none, another thing that already happened in the comics.
