    The articulation in the hands and the size of the screw holes in relation to the figure suggests it's bigger than Voyager.

    I wish they had announced this before ST Commander actually hit. Stand alone I don't need ST Commander, but with this I would want both.

    Assuming it is the same as their Optimus it will be around pre-Siege Leader Class size, probably a little taller than the CW Megatron.

    The question is... initial release, or wait for the more source-oriented re-paint? I have no idea what this is based on, but Jungle Commander would look a little out-of-place squaring off against a boring ol' grey tank-chopper.

    Speaking of, very cool idea. Inner bot as the chopper, full armoured as the tank? Rail gun from the blades? I like it - I like it a lot!.

    This is based on Don Figueroa's concept art from the same GIJoe crossover that spawned TFC's Commander figure.

    IIRC, that crossover comic never happened, but this would have been the Megatron that opposed that Optimus Prime.

    Recognized it as soon as I saw it, but took a minute to find the art it's based on:

    Pretty cool that they're making this guy to match their Rolling Thunder Optimus. I assume that means he'll be large.

    The drawings are from about 15 years ago. Crazy huh?. It wasn't a triple changer til now though. It was a double cockpit chopper from Cobra

    If it's anything like STC-01 then I am all in. That Optimus is such a presence on my shelf. Can't wait

    Well don't worry. We are getting the nuclear blast repaint. And that white repaint that may or may not be nova prime so there's two options for your megatron. And if you think a 3p is not going to make more recolors, I've got seekers to sell you

    Also, can we acknowledge, this is just megatron saying "anything you can do, I can do better" I mean, he does the same power up thing, but now he triplechanges? And hopefully we'll get more ji joe designed transformers. There were plenty of cool ones

    Also looks great, but I gotta worry about the price here

    So I'm not entirely sure this is based on Don Figureroa's design. At least, not exclusively. It seems to incorporate more than a little bit of inspiration from @Zildjian's 2011 custom "Destro's Dominator" Megatron. Just instead of being an outright triple-changer he uses the same armoured-up style as STC-01. Not enough inspiration to say it's an outright copy (it's clearly stylised more after Don's) but, well, see for yourself:

    Heavy/Scratch: - GI Joe - Transformers Crossover: Destro's Dominator Megatron

    Just looking at pictures of Don's work, though... there could be a lot of untapped source material there. Sucks that he probably isn't seeing any credit for it (or maybe he is?) but there appears to be at least a pretty sweet Galvatron and a Mark V tank.

    Don't know what color scheme I'd like to match the Jungle redeco. Maybe blue-gray, black with red highlights.

    If their Nuclear Blast gets redeco'd or remoulded into Red Alert, I'll pick up that one too.

    Love the trend of everyone having a regular and super mode.
