    Reasonable price + decent reviews of build quality means I might well check this guy out. Always a bit cautious when some new guys in the 3rd P community spring up outta nowhere.

    This is one time I hope is not mp sized, an upscaled Hegemon would be a better mp substitute then the IdW tank, but this will look cool paired with mmc's Sixshot at that size, anyways. It'll be interesting to see how this pans out.

    I'm in for this. I dig my United Megs, but this could well replace him on the Classics shelf. If this thing delivers, that is.

    judging by the hands and what appears to be a 5mm hole my best guess is that this is NOT mp scale.

    edit: others have pointed this out as well I see

    Looks like it could be interesting. It's a design I really like for a character I want. If it's Voyager sized I will be extremely tempted. I'll also compare this to Hasbro's theoretical but unannounced IDW Megs. I'll likely only buy one unless I do a custom (which is always a possibility).

    I wonder will Hasbro's Megatron have an earth mode tank or he will be comic accurate,coz so far we've seen Hasbro prefers to give the comic characters earth vehicles instead of cybetronian,is there an info on that?

    Judging from the Generation releases we have gotten so far I think it'll be more a futuristic tank that can pass off for an Earth or Cybertronian vehicle.

    TBH id prefer this one to be in scale with Orion. I think it would fit quite nicely. That plus i really dont want them to MP Scale it if its going to jack up the price.

    My guess is large classics size, only coz if you look at the hands, they have a circular cut to them, very similar to the 5mm openings in CHUG toys. Doesn't have the look of a mp level toy either.

    Looks very, very promising. Unlike Optimus, Megatron never ever gets the attention he deserves from Hasbro so I guess we'll leave it to the 3rd parties.

    Hope it is Classics scale.

    Huh? Aside from Bayformer toy lines and other toy lines we generally don't care about (the giant TFP Bee & Prime "action" figures), Hasbro pretty much gives us a new Megatron for every new Optimus they make. I think FOC is the first time they didn't, recently...

    Whatever they are doing is failing.

    This looks better IMO

    So Im guessing this project is dead huh? The Megasteel version is.. problematic. I kind of wish tronus had longer parts below the knee to give him just a teeny bit of extra height, did away with all the diecast to focus on the QC issues and had an attachment to put on the fusion cannon to give it the more.. 'overcompensation' look.
