    Well now......I reckon this is going to be the subject of every Hasbro FAQ for the next five years.

    That's what it sounds like... but looking at the pics, it seems very distinct visually from Blitzwing.

    One thing I'm curious about is whether this was a discarded concept from the original development period of the series, or was part of a cancelled continuation of the series.

    How fickle you all are, yesterday it was all "Hasbro, we're not worthy" after the panel of awesome, now one (admittedly gorgeous) cancelled toy later and suddenly they're morons again. :lol 

    It is very sexy but for crying out loud it's so vague in what it is that they could use this design any time they wanted. I imagine we might even see it in Prime.

    I second the call for extra info, was this some kind of late in the game upgrade for Megatron or the result of a wacky plot?

    I really like the one we got but it does somewhat pale in comparison to this, just goes to show you how good these two companies really are together, they never stop upping their game. :thumb 


    Oh I will, don't you worry about that, heck I ordered three copies of book one just to make sure I didn't miss it!

    It is great to see toy stuff in these books, did you have to convince Hasbro to let you do it? I seem to recall they weren't keen on publishing stuff like this.


    Possibly but animated Blitzwing didn't have a face plate so it wouldn't be much good in a narrative sense there.

    If the TF Prime Megatron toy looks like that jet mode with that robot mode, I might just be satisfied and give Hasbro many BUNNY KISSES :XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    Oh man, thats beautiful.
    Sucks it never got released, but hopefully they might use it at some point in the future.
    A triple changer without a mode being sacrificed for the others, excellent.

    The latest addition to the 'Want but can never have' list.

    Until the animated haters turn up, then it'll be "we want this toy, in Generations!".

    Food for thought, what if there's an Optimus like this...

    That's what I was most struck by - it's a very well-designed triple changer. I wasn't big into Animated, but I'd certainly be tempted by this.

    Amazing. If only Animated had continued... such a major shame.
    This is seriously one of the best triple-changers I've ever seen. If this is ever released, much rejoice will be had.
