Perhaps if the head was bigger the shoulders wouldn't be so bad
I'll throw this one in the "Maybe" column; I've never much liked this design. Kudos for the big step up from the Titanium series.
love the Sketch, the CG...not so much
Mmm yeah the shoulders don't bother me a lot but they do bother me a little and I do think them being more proportional even to an already very chunky design would have looked much nicer, seems like since they form so much of the alt mode though it would take a lot of design revision to shrink them down however;
Also not sure what's up with the "toothbrush" hip panels. Are those meant to be missiles? in the comics those front areas are flat, looks kinda silly imo.
How can they get Optimus so right and then proceed to completely fuck up Megatron? They managed to make the proportions WORSE then on the original design!
There is no shell anywhere on this. What is your definition of shellformer?
Change those glasses, bud. This version BLOWs the official one out of the water. Not sure how anyone can think this is worse than that HasTak version.
This is pretty close to exactly how he looked in the comics. And guess what he even parts-formed in the comics when transforming when it comes to his cannon and shield.
Just want to clear up something. THIS IS NOT FINAL DESIGN. tweaks are stilling being made. Picture released just to let everyone know that this line is supported, and they are not doing a smash a grab. They listen to all the fans on the OP design, I'm sure they will listen to all the fans on this as well.
I saw the new version, and it is so much better looking than the one now. But I can release it, they say they want this to be well done before releasing it. I can tell you all this, they are definitely taking Megatron to the right direction, because it looks good.
Thanks for the info. It definitely looks nice currently, but I'm glad they're fixing it. If the thighs and torso were a little longer and the shoulders were smaller, I think it would have much better proportions.
Any chance of rubber treads for this guy?
Just longer thighs and smaller shoulders.
Head and torso are good as is.
Not sure if that is cost effective. Its the form that matter, not sure rollablity, or swooshablity is major concern.
Canon, Shield and hip guns are all wrong, original version was much closer... i want war within, not something that does not exist....
also, tank mode is looking less accurate right now, don't know why.... maybe the funny grill in the front that does not exist on Megatron..
Seeing this makes the chances of me buying their WW Prime increase...
I cant have a Prime without a Megatron...
Keep up the good work team... I'm interested now...
I could get past the huge limbs but I'm not feeling the cannon placement on the arm, it looks like the weight of the gun would constantly throw off arm movements. I also never liked the shield that much from the DW Megs, but if that can be stored on his body to free up his arm, that's alright. Vehicle mode is good. Nothing mind blowing, but cool enough and vicious enough to be Megs.
I really like the approach that Spark Toys is taking. That is, they aren't simply showing off a concept drawing or, worse yet, a silhouette. Their Alpha Prime was announced when a prototype was ready to be shown. The Megatron started with drawings but was followed up with the prototype days later.
This is how 3P companies should be doing things.
I think you may be mixing up the pictures. The fusion cannon on V.2 is pretty close to the way it was in the comic, and the cannon is pretty much the only difference that I can see between the versions. I would like to see the hip guns/missile pods look more like the comic, and it would be cool if the bottom center of the shield could telescope down like in the comic art. I'm looking forward to seeing the next revisions.
This is V.2 which is still a work in progress.
Oh I think you guys will like the V3. Again its work in progress, I think people should just enjoy the development progress that is being brought to the table. Its going to be good.
I love how young WWI Megatron's face is. It really hammers home that this happened in the past.
