    But yeah, he's hardly a hero. A powerful figure known for conquest, sure, but I don't think he'd ever be considered heroic (in the traditional do-gooder sense). In greek mythology he's considered a tragic figure, ill favored by the gods for several things, like they were not pleased with his invasion of Troy. And the movie Troy portrays him as a power hungry jerk who's just using Paris running off with Helen, his brother's wife, as an excuse to invade Troy.

    he did become an Autobot, a pacifist at that. it's on the IDW comic series though. i haven't caught up with their series yet, but was able to get small bits and pieces when model kit maker Flame Toys teased a Megatron kit with an Autobot insiginia, and I was like "WTF are these companies trying to do, and mess things up?" but before I posted any violent reaction, I searched, and saw that it did happen. And other things such as Soundwave working alongside Optimus Prime but still wearing the Decepticon insignia. Thundercracker (or was it Skywarp?) becoming a G.I. Joe, and bonding with a human, etc. etc. it's fun actually!

    My memory of the Iliad is spotty, but I think the movie portrayed it accurately: Helen was the excuse to invade Troy. And Agamemnon did steal all the glory from Achilles.

    I'm like 99% certain Agamemnon was the smaller Golden Girl with the glasses.

    They do look a tad weird, but they also work really well with the toy deco, because the original toy's robot mode was a hot mess, so it helps evoke that without being bad.

    I'm trying to resist buying NA's toy deco and MS for the toon version, but I might not be that strong.

    No, you're thinking of Sophia Petrillo. Agamemnon was the Italian short sword master who, if you've studied him, prevents Thibault from cancelling out Capa Ferro.

    You are thinking of Agrippa, my friend. Now prepare to die.

    I thought we were talking about Voldo, the blind bondage fetishist who uses, of all things, hand weapons from India and obsesses over his dead master.

    I used to think: What if the Dinobots got corrupted and their intelligence upgraded by the Anti-electrons in Unicron’s brain and took over the Decepticons after the war?

    Still waiting on that.

    But I do think Grimlock from Grimlock’s New Brain sounds a bit like David Kaye’s Beast Wars Megatron.

    Always had this weird idea that BW Megatron was somehow a Unicron upgrade of Grimlock and the Tripredacus council was the other Dinobots.

    None of the above, the sign clearly shows this guy is named Agamenmnon. Extra N, not the Greek hero. :D

    I didn't notice that the toy version isn't just a different paint job, but has a remolded chest. That's cool. I hope they paint the toy version's face silver like the rest of it; white looks unfinished to be.

    the chest is identical between the 2 bots. only the paint apps differ.

    Maybe I am mistaken, but the top part where the head connects looks smooth on the toy version.

    The upper chest, not the stomach. The titties, if you will.

    Though, I'm wondering if that isn't just a weird reflection we're seeing on the toon deco that makes it look like there's a couple ridges in the plastic.

    It does seem a bit weird to remold that part.
