    Yeah, looks like it's a face plate designed to screw onto a Titan Master so it could be attached to TLK voyager Nitro Zeus. I guess a nice work-around if you couldn't find/didn't have a DOTM Shockwave head to swap on to him?

    Whether or not you'll easily find one printed, I dunno. I know a few users design a bunch of face plates like that one, but only a fraction of them ever really got bought and printed

    Man, I really love the progression of Megatron's designs in the first trilogy. They reflect where he's at as a character in each film rather nicely, and I like that they seemed to acknowledged that in Studio Series, whether it was intentional or not

    In the first film he's practically brand new, pristine. He's at one hundred percent, and nothing can get in his way. By ROTF, he's suffered some serious trauma in the form of, well, dying. And it shows with his new, uneven, jagged body. Then by DOTM, he's at the end of his tether, clinging on to the last remains of his former glory, falling apart both physically and mentally. He's not the tyrant or the warrior he once was, something even his subordinates recognise

    I like to think that's why he stuck with the name "Galvatron" come AOE. Even though he was given the name by humans, it reflected where he was in his life. He'd beaten death again, but Megatron was dead. Galvatron could be something new, something fresh and powerful. A means of returning himself to glory by shedding himself of his past failures. A new body, a new identity, and a new army, exactly what he needed

    What a shame we never got a fifth film to see what became of Galvatron. Total shame

    Yknow, I’m still pretty upset that tungmung got shut down or whatever. Their DOTM soundwave looked amazing. At least I’m pretty certain that was the company.

    Yep it was them. Recently a preorder went up for it so who knows, maybe there is hope for it to return. Doubt they destroyed the files for it.

    I’d love that, the design was super impressive. Of course we don’t know the quality of it but purely off design I needed that in my collection

    This! I thought this exact thing. The designs really show a character arc of Megatron. Another point I'd like to add to all of your perfect ones is by the third film he's been beaten down enough to finally take on an earth based vehicle. He actually is trying to hide, even more evident with his base of operations being away from much of a population. Anyway, I'm just glad too know I'm not the only one who has thought this about Megaton's designs
