    Still waiting for that new material to become publicly available. It's expensive but for small pieces like hands it'd be perfect.

    Yup, turns in to a very stylized sci fi pistol with a long barrel etc. Basic transformation that allows them to minimize moving parts and accentuate posability, same approach they've had with their optimus. That's the huge upside with cybertronian figures, no need to hide the robot bits as much.

    Yeah I don't think the Fallen would be well represented by this mold since he's suppose to be a tank n all. I was already thinking of doing some kind of black variant of my bash tho.

    Eh they open and close, its still meant to be a toy more than anything else and swap out hands is more of a display-only figure kind of thing.

    Hooray!

    I really appreciate them not wasting any time making a Megatron to go with their Prime.

    Now he looks like Aranea. I don't think he wears those colours so well.

    Haha didn't even intend for that. But come to think of it she does have one of my favorite color schemes ever which is really just animated black arachnias colors I guess. I don't see why megs having that palette doesn't work for him, nice colors are nice colors.

    The chest gem I wasn't sure about though, tried red, orange and yellow, thought about green but ahh I dunno maybe red would be better. I didn't wanna change the gold on the legs cause they really nicely break up the leg color even on the regular. Though maybe silver would be more appropriate with the black.

    I'm not exactly sure what it is, but for some reason purple as the "body" colour (in the way that certain parts sort of read as anatomy, while others more easily read as overlying armour) skews a bit feminine.

    Maybe replace the purple body parts (face, abdomen and elbows) with gunmetal grey and keep the purple as highlights?

    Now THAT I'd buy. That looks brilliant, nice work. Very reminiscent of stealth bomber Megs. :)

    Sweet;
    I dig the multiple canon modes and and idea he has a sword... somewhere. Very nice pair with Striker Manus. Familiar and yet lithe and super robot in all the mecha-sexy ways you only expect in non-transforming toys by the big collector lines.

    Now we wait for picks of what he turns into.

    Those digibashes look amazing, Aza! Love the first purple and black one you did. The yellow accents just work so well with the rest of the figure.
    Can't say I'd buy the repaints, though. Really only need one Megatron.

    Ooh! Unless they did some remolding and made Galvatron. I'd be down for that.

    I didn't think of that. With an orange gem and accents, that could be amazing.
