    I want them to go crazy with Micromasters. I figure leader class Star Saber & Thunderwing will be a given, but I would love all the other leaders (& maybe some Voyagers) to be updates to the base concept. Throw in Grandus, maybe a leader sized Fort Max and Scorponok for bases, update the original micromaster bases as triple changers of sorts: vehicle, base, & robot that a micromaster can pilot. That's my hope for a Countdown update.

    Speaking of shockwave, I wonder if perhaps they could use the gimmick from animated to justify his price since they said they were going to mainly use gimmicks that had already been used in the past. As such, have him be able to turn into a giant autobot to do some spying. This could fit in either Seige storyline in my mind, especially if instead of his longarm Prime identity from animated they used his senator design from IDW.



    Same! Small scale with a focus on bases and cities has always been my love, I’d really be happy if they focused on it.

    I wonder if the micro masters fit on the Titan master pegs. If that functionality were retained and they continued the same slot system for the ramps used on the figures titans returns, I’d be super excited.

    Leader Class Metroplex and Trypticon?
    As I welcome the idea, but i think this only may happen if the global economy went haywire.
    Like Leader Class is the new Titan Class?
    I'd say, make it Supreme Class maybe?

    Well... Tigerhawk is both a Fuzor and a Transmetal 2, but only billed as the latter I believe. Overlord is a Duocon in all but name. Just like Snapdragon and Apeface have three modes, but not part of the subgroup Triple Changers. Or anyone else with three modes for that matter.

    Anyway...I agree that I hope we get lots of Micromasters. Not just the first series ones, but the 1990 ones and the bases and most importantly, the leaders Countdown and Skystalker.

    while tigerhawk fits the aesthetic of a fuzor his origin is different. its a similar case to overlord being a duocon or the actionmaster partners being targetmasters

    I think they'd either just give us more bot/vehicle/base figures (I still hope for Skygarry, Dia Atlas, Galaxy Shuttle, Star Convoy, Grandus, Metrotitan, etc.) or just tell us to use the basebots we've been given already.

    I’d like to see Storm Cloud and Visper repainted into their Shattered Glass color schemes. Visper has the same colors as the Botcon toy with Storm Cloud being the same colors in reverse, like the Siege toys are. And the two heroic Decepticons are also the heroic Autobots from Zone after travelling to the positive universe. Their combined form is called the Star Saber, to pay homage to their leader in Zone.

    In the Takara Legends line at least, but there is no confirmation for him (that I know of) for a Hasbro release.

    I think I had the Japanese version of this as a kid.

    Was it intended to be a Micromaster base first and then used in Victory simultaneously?

    I don't think Japan got all those late 80s Micromaster bases.

    nice work. Is that United Megatron? wish i'd grabbed him back then. (ALSO Wish the Classic's mold cannon was about 1/2 as big.)

    I think this helps me clarify what's bugged me about Siege Megs. Compared to most G1-styled torso Megatrons, his chest is too wide, which makes the fact his head sits a bit low seem even worse.

    As with the prior conversation about his feet in alt mode, this really isn't BAD, just a noteworthy nitpick on an otherwise pretty well executed mold. Also cool to see from the comparison, he looks like he might have the best headsculpt of any Megatron toy.

    Proportions wise, of all those i think i actually like the Legends/CW Leader best, but man his arm cannon is just awful. Wish Siege Megs had the tasty silver paint he has too.

    Yeah he looks the tits but the cannon is trash. Also those low set shoulders are ugly.

    Basically if you leave him in the box he's the best non MP Megatron.

    - He's got the best Paint job...except the legs.

    - He's got working treads....WORKING TREADS...but his head is just kinda under the fender.

    - He's got an awesome Tank mode.....at the expense of his shoulders and legs.

    - He's got the best head sculpt.... but no ankle joints and soggy high ratchets.

    He's the best and the worst. He's perfection and disappointment.
    He's CW Megatron.

    Eh, the treads are just a liability for future damage. They don't roll very nicely.

    Never liked his mouth area. Upper lip was a bit too long, and the sculpted philtrum (the lip groove we have under our noses) is an odd choice because Transformers rarely, if ever, have that. Combined, the effect was that he looked vaguely simian.

    The first wave of figures went up for pre-order on BBTS, and Skytread is already sold out.:mad: :(

    I mean skytread is probably the most anticipated figure of this line to date.
