Well, They could always redeco CW or Siege Optimus Prime in those colors to go with Megatron.
Tank mode Megaplex?
Once again, the Titans Return mold would make more sense.
Haha, that is very true! To be fair I’m not a mad G2 fan anyway & will probably prefer this version, it’s more a bemusement that out of the 3 G2 colour schemes they pick the 2 more less known versions... Maybe they have plans for the green version further down the line?
Yeah. I'll buy this Megatron if it's real,because the G2 arctic camo is one of my favorite Megatron color schemes,but this still feels like a bizarre and random choice.
If Hasbro takes Seige Optimus and redecos him into Nemesis Prime or Shattered Glass Optimus,I want that yesterday. I'd also buy Combat Hero OP because Optimus designs tend to look good with more red added to them. It worked for Powerlinx Optimus in Armada and Costco Optimus in Energon.
So the G2 Megatron news really opens things up (if it’s all true) We still don’t really know the contours of this line beyond these 3 redecos but it’s apparent that it will make use of molds from multiple lines and that it will include at least Deluxe and Voyager price points. The big questions for me from a product line standpoint is how long will it last and will it include only redecos or will it include known alternate heads where the molds exist.
If it’s just redecos it still means that can get a ton of Prime Wars and Siege product out - The Datsuns from Siege Prowl or CW Bluestreak, Sideswipe redecos from the Siege mold, Voyager seekers, Optimus and ultra Magnus redecos. If it’s redecos and alternate heads you widen things out more and could see Hoist, Ratchet, etc from CW, Magnificus from TR Perceptor.
It could be a pretty wide net
Hasbro did Optimus in a gift set some years back and FP did Megatron in the last TFSS.
I would like to see Optimus rock these colors again.

They had better put Siege Optimus in those colors in this line. He looks beautiful with black replacing his blue.
That would be a very nice "reverse homage." I'm usually not a fan of repaints that involve changing a few colors and/or repaints as "powered up" versions but I really dig how AEC dabbled with giving Optimus a black secondary color (that replaces the blue). Actually, I think Hasbro should make AEC Optimus have his default colors become red and black. It helps further make AEC Optimus standout as a unique character. I really dig this variation on the typical Optimus color scheme.
Agreed, I would love to see a set of Optimus' from each "Generation" of the franchise. Classic red and blue for G1 blue and black for G2, like the unused CHOP, Black and white for BW, gray and green for MW All red for RiD, Red and Black for ACE, red and blue flames for the films.
I'd buy a Combat Hero OP redeco if Hasbro used the Siege OP mold. If that happens and the Megatron redeco from this line pans out,we could have both Combat Hero redecos in scale with each other for the first time.
Combat Hero OP:"Megatron,you've gotten shorter.Have you been dieting?"
Megatron:"Silence,Prime! If I can become a Siege Micromaster,I can time-travel into the past and wield myself! This is just a minor setback!"
Looking forward to red Swoop
Spacewarp: Ummm. Guys, is this really the time to have one of those moments?
Looks like some pics
Man. They are a thing of beauty.
Preorders are up at BBTS!

Transformers Power of the Primes Deluxe Ricochet Exclusive
Ugh. Why must Ricochet make such a shitty mold look so damned good?
Much like with Jazz, I think I'm just going to stick with the "old" Ricochet. (Million Publishing?)
I don't care about Ricochet at all to really care either way. Just saying that I'd be sorely tempted simply based on how good he looks here, if I didn't already know that the toy was a freakin' eggshell.
Goddamn those look beautiful. At first I thought that Ricochet was just a custom, but I knew it was official when I saw the white prime armor hand.
