    Nice, the costumed character that taunts people at the park is pretty popular. This looks to be essentially the toy of him haha.

    So no 07 Megatron yet? That's disappointing

    I doubt it'll be a part of Studio Series itself, due to Evac not being tied to any toyline in particular.

    man, the detail is almost so incomprehensible that when it's all painted grey like this he could easily pass as the 07 design.

    Pretty impressed on how those colors make the DOTM mold look so good.

    I don't mind this repaint at all because it's not like it'll be taking up an actual Leader slot from the retail line. This was never going to be 2007 Megatron, the DOTM figure was only a Leader so it could have its full cab + trailer mode not be tiny. A hypothetical 2007 Megatron would be a Voyager just like the ROTF Megs.

    The lack of a Murder Arm accessory is disappointing though.

    You were expecting a brand new figure as an exclusive? Do you, like, hate other collectors?

    Not impressed at all.

    I’ll have to wait for in-hand pictures to make a definite judgement because right now SS “Crankcase” is not longer the laziest repaint I’ve seen.

    Good things come to those who wait...

    No, I was hoping the leaked code for a leader SS Megatron was for a mass retail 07 Megatron. From what I understand, this occupies the same code as the leader class Megatron from the leaked Studio Series listings

    Yes but he has a point

    never the less this doesn't mean 07 Megatron is out of the question.

    It just moves back on the board from a rumor to a it will probably happen eventually. Because from what ive seen so far from the line and personally think SS has at least 1 more year after next year.

    They probably made this to have a dotm megatron after the original ss finishes its toy retail run
