    Even with the knight stuff and him still being really far off from any Megatron anyone ever saw before the movies, he has an arm cannon, he's all silver, and his head is probably more like Megatron than ever with the mask open. Might be the best looking version of him I've seen in the bay movies.

    Heeey, this one kinda evokes Geewun!

    The bucket head, the cannon, etc... are all there!

    The Negatives.

    The more I look at it, the more it looks like a mix of Optimus and Shockwave. The legs look so much like Optimus', while the arms look like Shockwave's. His gun even looks like it's plugged into his back. His chest could be either Shock's or OP's. Also, I really miss his helmet crest, and he could use a bit more variety in colour. A lot of the details and patterns get lost in that sea of grey.

    The positives.

    I'm glad that, like AOE's Galvatron, he doesn't look overly monstrous, and his knight look does give him some distinct features, elevating him above Galvatron's design. His head design isn't bad, either. I just miss the crest. I guess I appreciate the more G1 canon, but I was OK with his AOE one. Still, better than him having a shotgun.

    Oh wow, that's terrible. Yet people still find ways to convince themselves these are good. This movie will suck like the others.

    Oh, yes! Yes! YES!!! I am LOVING this new look for Megatron! It's a fantastic mix of his original G1 and '07 Movie designs, making for something that looks quite a bit like TF: Prime Megatron, but not so much that it can't be seen as its own thing. The barbarian look really works for him, as I always felt G1 Megatron had that same sort of barbarian feel to him. The fact that he has an arm cannon again is just amazing. It's the most iconic element of Megatron, and it's finally been incorporated into the Movie Megatron design! The mace and battle mask both look great as well. I'm also impressed with the fact that he isn't baring sharp teeth, making him come across as less of a beast and more of an intelligent enemy.

    I knew I'd be buying all I could from this line, but if these designs are any indication, I may become bankrupt before Wave 2! :D

    This has to be a flash back of some kind. But then again the writers on these films could give a shit about continuity.

    If Ultron and a Wampa had a child, this would be it...

    Anyone know if Frank Welker will be playing Megatron? I would be hyped if he played it like Megs in Prime.

    With the look it feels like a bayverse Gladiator Megatronus.

    Considering TF2-4 were written by the same guy, and TF5 is written by the dudes who wrote the first Iron Man movie (which is awesome). I'd say that's a pretty big conclusion jump since there's a new creative team involved in developing these movies now.

    I get it though, it's easier to be cynical about a toy brand that's supposed to be fun, than to actually enjoy yourself. It's not like having a disposable income that allows you to have hobbies is a blessing or anything.

    Wasn't quick enough with the edit lol. Meant to say Gladiator Megatronus, like from TF Prime - design/look wise, to me.
