    I should probably give Hasbro credit for trying something new with SS Megatron over just shrinking the MPM. Downsizing a well engineered figure is good in concept, but most of the time the final result ends up a floppy mess:

    Battle Blade Optimus for example. He was derived from one of the best movie figures ever made (ROTF LCOP), yet he is frustratingly difficult to transform has pitiful articulation and has been replaced by SS-32 in almost every collection I’ve seen but mine.

    Or perhaps SS Barricade? Do his clear plastic joints and hollow back ring a bell? Not to mention also being pretty annoying to transform.

    Just my $0.02

    Movie 1 Megatron, what a relief. I am not holding my breath but Frenzy might come in an exclusive re-release. Aside from that, it took 13 years for them to get it right. It is bittersweet.

    Now that Mixmaster looks like it is in the bag, my biggest concern is Overload. Correct me if I am wrong but he might be the most critical figure in the combiner form. Overload has to have a unique robot mode and a unique vehicle mode on top of having faux kibble for two different vehicles and massive ratchet joints to support 80% of the mass of Devastator in his combined mode.

    To be fair, I adore my SS barricade. Love that figure quite a bit, and I think the downscaling worked well in it's case.

    That being said, I do agree in that it's nice that Hasbro is trying something new with these figures, rather than just downscaling previous versions. Megatron would've been perfect if his legs were either thinner or at least pushed farther back, and his chest was more accurate. Other than that it's a pretty nice attempt if you ask me

    What happened to the parachuting Nest army guy? Is he cancelled? He hasn’t appeared in any of the hd renders, and only in the one at the panel.

    Im patting myself on the back this info from my source i posted was spot on.

    Side note

    48 is still unknown

    We know 49 - 52 are deluxe

    Leaving mixmaster as 53 and 54 is confirmed tf1 Megatron

    55 is scavenger and 56 is probably shockwave

    I think it's based on Young NEST Soldier guys who shot Shockwave mouth (in neck area) with grenade launcher

    Oh no, I was talking about the render of the toy, not about the character in the movie

    Not to take away from all these awesome new reveals, but I decided to get back into a bit of proper Transformers toy photography today. Got my two lamps, my big sheet of paper, and got cracking. Here's just a few of the photos I took

    They're not perfect, but I'm happy enough with how they've turned out!
