    It sucks that he has no unique accessories, at least a shocked face. But I'll still be buying!

    Does anybody have any clue if he'll be black light reactive? I really hope those grid lines at least glow in UV - otherwise there will be a lot of taping off and painting for me ...

    The grape-flavored jelly Megatron looks delicious.

    He looks pretty good, although the lack of any internal detailing is a bit disappointing (albeit expected, there's only so much you can do with these figures). I kinda want to pick him up, not only because this is one of the better mid-reformatting Megatrons I've seen, but also because I'd like to give his flail to my Siege/ER Megatron.

    Now isn't there also a rumored reformatting Galvatron with all the same grid lines coming to Gen Selects? Really curious to see both figures side by side if that\'s the case.

    Now this is a deco I'd go for, but I want Reformatting Galvatron to go with him. (and I guess there's a chance for a Ghost King Starscream, too - and possibly a Dead Optimus redeco).

    Ah, the Transformers/TRON crossover has arrived.

    In all seriousness this is actually kind of dope, though personally I would think the best thing to do with this figure is to construct a blacklight box to recreate the scene in full. Probably wouldn't be too hard, but the space requirement might be an issue.

    Wonder if this (even remotely) implies that RED Galvatron is on the cards at all?

    Anyhoo, not bad at all IMO.

    Glorious grid-based excellence. :buttrock 

    Now the same for MP-36 please.

    Vince DiCola's 80's synth gathering dust in his attic space demands it.

    Won't be too difficult to paint it up and match the box art.

    There's a chance, but there's already a Super7 Ultimates Ghost Starscream figure coming, and I'm not sure that specific niche needs that many toys. Of course, I'm sure they'll want to get some alternate uses for the R.E.D. mold, so who knows.

    I can't stand G1 and the movie to me is just a Star Wars ripoff, but this is so iconic I might just nab it. Very cool looking figure.

    I'll pick this up for sure and a reformatted galvatron and dead optimus too if we get them.

    As these bots don't transform there should be no excuses in the bot mode. It should be perfect. I already have red prime megs and coronation starscream so I'm hoping this will be as good

    I don't see any similarities between Star Wars and the 1986 G1 movie besides the fact that it took place in outer space and on multiple alien planets.

    Yeah, the part where Galvatron said he was Hot Rod's father was mind-blowing
