    I'm surpised how appealing this figure seems to be...Why couldn't this have been the design for leader class figure?

    Much better than Leader Class Brickbot. I don't mind the green and the proportions look much better. At least the gimp arm looks less like someone cleaned the meat off a chicken wing.

    Really liking it, and is interesting to see the possibility of Megs and the Fallen merging somehow. May go with this over the Leader version :O

    Huh?

    I don't think it's a mix of the jet from movie 1 and the tank.

    It seems to be more of a cross between tank mode Megs and The Fallen.

    Many small details from the Fallen himself can be found within this figure, and also in the colors as well.

    He's a green, round-ish tank... Guys, he's a turtle!

    Seriously though, this... actually looks good. Once again it seems that the toy has an odd tint to it, but that's easy to ignore in person I'm sure.

    I wonder what the background is. It looks like a playset...

    Other than the fact that he has wings in his tank mode, I can't see any real indication that this is a combined form with The Fallen. In fact, minus the wings, the tank mode looks exactly like the leaked concept art. I'd have expected a combined version to have a little bit more of The Fallen's design in it than just some wings which don't look anything like what we've seen on The Fallen's toy anyway.

    Not saying that a combination between Megatron and The Fallen isn't a possibility but this toy is hardly conclusive proof of it.

    Wow, the first time that I've said that a voyager version is better than the leader version. But I'm a scale freak so if that is no fusion, it will bug me while I own it. Oh well. Fusions rule. But still, his alt mode does look like his revealed tank. In fact, this clearly shows how it should have been done.

    Yeah, I'm going with the wings as leftovers from the previous Alt mode theory. Heck, you see people put wings on their Civics all the time. It doesn't mean they can fly or were combined with a Cessna.

    not saying you're wrong, I can see some similarities, it's just I don't see anything I think is enough to confirm it.

    The wings are presumably from Megatron's previous alt, and the rest from dead movie 1 bots, like tank treads from Brawl. Maybe that theory is wrong, but it seems reasonable to me.

    It's possible that there could be parts of The Fallen in there too, but the way I recall that figure had a sort of ribbing details on the panels that I don't see here.

    - The first Jet Tank, Coolest tank ever!
    - They switched the gun arm (anyone notice?)
    -The best head sculpt in Movie former history...He's very scary
    - 100% better than the leader...I'll buy it
    - Voyager or Ultra?
    - Too many hinges on the shell for it to be properly a transformed robot mode

    This ^^ was my first thought.

    I'm so glad I bought the Animated Shadowblade Megatron now, cuz I'd rather have two animated leader class toys of the same mold than any of the ROTF megatron toys.

    could it be an upgrade from the fallen sort of like megatron/galvatron, thats what I suspect. Theres just not enough similarity to the fallen to suggest combining. the combinig idea seems common in the movie but why would this happen?

    I do think megatron's head looks similar to this though.

    Wait, what if the Fallen combined with Megatron and not Megatron combined with the Fallen? (There is a difference if you think.) That may explain the Voyager size and not a Leader.

    Vehicle mode reminds me a bit of Dai Atlas.

    This mold seems a lot nicer than the leader figure. Might pick it up.
