    Hey all,

    I saw a video on YouTube and it was Miner Megatron and Ratbat 2 pack. The reviewer did comparisons to other Megatron molds similar to Miner Megatron.

    One of these Megatrons had a roundish head, looked different from his usual "bucket head" and I've been looking through the Wiki and TFinfo for mold mate info but I don't recognize it. Can anyone help me out with identifying this figure? Thanks!

    Could you take a screenshot from the video of the comparison? It might be easier for people to identify with an image.

    Yeah, screenshots are needed. As far as I know, all siege megatrons had the same head. The earthrise retool had a different head but not what I would call round, more long faced.

    Yep, pics would answer this question in a heartbeat.

    Combat Megatron had a different (I think unique?) head to the other Siege variants.

    Did it? I thought it was just all paint. Will have to go have a gander.

    Oh shoot, it does. I never looked that closely at it.

    Definitely different, IDW-based. Same source but oddly unique sculpt to Miner Megatron from the recent capsule

    How do we still not have pics or the video?

    We can't identify it if we can't see it.

    I may have found it. In Ni Stuff's video of the 2-pack, ong of his several Siege Megatron's is customized to have a Combiner Hunters Arcee head.

    Is this the video in question? @MnemonicSyntax

    It is and I thank you all for helping me out! I've been sorta away from TFW for a bit, I had COVID. Thank you all for your help and I promise I wasn't ignoring you!

    Combiner Hunter's Arcee head, huh. Interesting.

    What an odd choice, I'm gonna have to check that out.

    Hopefully you're on the mend from COVID, and glad you got your answer!

    Yep, all good. Was just tired pretty much and had a light cough. In fact, it was so mild I only got a COVID test at the behest of my doctor, otherwise I thought it was just a cold. Thanks again!
