    My best guess is that this will be the Ultra Magnus we see in the Kingdom teaser, since we already have a Netflix version of him.

    I don’t think this will happen, but it’d be cool if SS Megatron came with a new chest that’s accurate to the film.


    Other than that, I see him probably having the brass/gold highlights and perhaps maybe some icy effects? He is NBE-01 after all. ;)

    Probably just a leader-sized bust of Magnus' head.

    We already have two different Netflix Siege Megatrons, and Takara's still doing a new one in this Premium Finish line. I don't think what's already been made in the Netflix line has any bearing on what Takara's doing here.

    Which Megatron is that? '07 or TLK?

    Because I'd buy the FCK out of TLK Megatron with a more elaborate and screen-accurate deco.

    Movie 1 or RotF. Wouldn't be TLK since it's SS.

    It's bound to just be a better paint app on that existing RotF, figure. Right?

    WFC Magnus will be accurate to Netflix's War for Cybertron: Siege "anime" Ultra Magnus, like the WFC Optimus of the same line. So it will be a simple recolor with some weathering, albeit good weathering, unlike the actual 2019 Siege toyline, if the standard is kept from Optimus.

    Megatron could be any of the three Bay trilogy Megatrons with an accurate, possibly weathered deco.

    I forgot the ROTF mold even existed since the Movie 1 figure is just so much better than it in functionality and appearance.

    But Man, TLK Voyager mold needs a realse with some of that premium paint on it.

    AGGGH! I thought we were getting pics... :( :( :( 

    I distinctly remember Takara (or someone?) posted teasing highly-saturated images of who was coming. Not sure where it is, though. Maybe the thread for Premium Finish Siege Optimus and Studio Series BB Optimus?

    I think it was determined that this was MV1 Megatron based on the shadows that came with the announcement of the line. People matched It to Takara stock images.

    Tbh, a PF version of ROTF Megatron would be the most appealing recolor out of this whole line for me. Not to imply the others have come out bad by any means, but I feel like all the other ones had pretty decent alternatives/original decos as is. The battle damaged version is cool, but the titular damage is a bit of a turn off for me.

    Unless this is 07 Megatron, in which case I am a fool.
