    MIght be right. I could understand black Orion = nemesis prime but what is black megatron supposed to be. The only thing I could think of is a bad recolor will certainly make tw-01 price go thru the roof.

    it was part of the black orion post at first but the title got edited as it was only info that the release would happen. than pics of orion in black showed and hegemon was left to the way side. so you missed it but you didnt really miss it

    im excited to see pics though as im hoping for browning colors, been saying that since hegemon was first released.

    Through the roof, Hegemon goes for over $300 on ebay already. That is insane, I have one but I don't think I would spend $300 on it, even if it is currently the best Megatron out there. But if you are right, this will just increase demand on the original, who knows how high it will go...

    But that doesn't help ToyWorld's bank accounts at all... Unless TW employees "bought" a chunk of Hegemon to personally sell at inflated secondary prices and put the profits back into the company :p

    ...Wow, two TW and one MMC... I wonder why the sudden influx of black repaints is occurring...

    It's the easiest repaint to do.

    "What other character can we do with this mold ... ah I don't know, slap a black deco on it. Perfect!"

    That's not to say they don't usually look awesome in black ;)

    Black does make everything awesome.

    For this I'm thinking Darth Megatron. :rock

    I imagine the Black deco would be more or less IDW Stealth Megatron's colors on the G1-esque figure.

    They could also have considered Browning as well... but it'd require a new head and would be a major upgrade for the comedic relief that was this Masterforce character...

    A silver deco would have made more sense and sold like gangbusters.
