    Oh I want that TransArt!! I assume their modifying the original toy to make more toon accurate. New arms and head is a good start for robot mode, they need to do something about the robot chest as well though. I like the extra accessory their making for this too, neat.

    There is a couple of things that I would like most, one being the chest and two the dragon neck has to be able to lock into place in a couple of different points, for more pose ability. Lovin the bw love :D

    I agree, need multiple points of articulation in the dragon neck.

    Dragon Megatron was one of those toys from the BW line that really needs some modifications more than others. The dragon mode is awesome already but the robot is lacking. So happy this is being done finally! also, I don't have much issue with the face sculpt on their render, so far so good.

    Given that Transart figures are almost impossible to buy, I dread trying to get this one. But I love their stuff.

    They should remold the legs and ditch that goofy third mold the original toys has.

    I wish someone would do a TM 1 megatron , the gold plastic syndrome on that toy is terrible plus it's really small

    Looks good but I'm waiting for reviews this time, their OpOp had a surprisingly low build quality considering how much design work went into improving the mold.

    Interested but even more interested in what Perfect Effect could do (or Hasbro/Takara for that matter since they're apparently doing their own Optimus Primal/Optimal Optimus in Power of the Primes).

    I'm really looking forward to this one. It looks cool. Hopefully they will upscale it also

    I am definitely on the side of the fence for more Beast Wars representation in 3rd party products. I'm looking forward to seeing more development on this Megatron.

    I think these are early sculpting prototypes, more for working out the looks then the function.

    Still hopeful that PE will be making their own version, but I'm still interested in seeing how this guy turns out.
