    After all this time, lineart is as far as this has gotten?


    Don't get me wrong, he looks good, but I would've hoped that by now there would be an actual prototype made for this guy. Maybe they'll release pics of one soon, but remember MT, use silver paint on him.

    They do have a lot of stuff in the works right now but I don't think it'll be that long before we see something.

    Well I'm sure Maketoys will do in Maketoys fashion and not have anymore news for a few months and then just drop you a grey test shot sample.

    His feet looks a bit weird, but unless Takara comes out with one, then this one will be my Megatron

    Lovely work, i'm sold

    Megatrons fusion cannon appears to sit closer to the arm on this which is something i've always wanted to see happen.

    No, lineart is all they revealed.

    I would like to see this in Safety Megatron colors. Call it Fabutron.

    First impression: chest and abs are a little disproportionate. His head is Megatron yet is still distinctively MT's (not a good thing for me personally). Will definitely keep watching.

    Looks very comic-stylized and the feet are even uglier than Apollyon's. I think I'll stick with Apollyon until a third new better version comes out (basically a more solid Apollyon with better looking feet and I'd be set).

    Biggest issue I had with Appolyon was the waist/thigh gap, and this looks to have much better proportions there. Color me interested. Now to see their Seeker mold.

    The arms look like they might be too blockyoung for my tastes.

    It's kind of hard to many any judgements from just artwork, but I think I still prefer Apollyon.

    I really hope they don't go with an overly anime style for the face like they did with their Inferno. Soft lines and rounded edges don't suit a character like Megs. He needs to be MANRY, dammit :D 

    I'm still watching. We'll see :)

    It's still line work at this point, but the headsculpt just looks off to me. Give me the upper body of Apollyon and the waist down from Despotron and it'll be perfect. Shows a lot of promise though and can't wait to see more.

    Looks pretty good, I understand it's still no reason to early to dump your Apollyon's based on just a lineart drawing. It's also no reason to dismiss this version of Megatron either. Like most I will wait to see further progress in the form of prototypes and coloured samples to make a final judgement. If it turns out to be better than Apollyon then I have zero reservation in saying I made a bad choice or that this version is better than the version I have and I should have waited.

    Apollyon just about got away with the alt gun mode. Looking at the bot mode here, I can't see how they're going to pull off an alt mode that matches Apollyon - let alone MP-05?

    Yes, looks good. Now announce Blaster.

    I can then toss Apollyon and Metal on eBay and be KFCrap free.
