    Not sure if this is the best place for this but since you have some experience with it I was wondering about the Fortnite line since I keep seeing the Calamity figure in the line but no information from Mcfarlane about releasing it and it being apart of a line by Jazwares. I am wondering if these lines are related outside of material since their waves are nearly identical?

    Peter Stormare Megatron would be great, especially if you get him channelling some of his Lucifer performance from Constantine.

    And turns out he is a credited Transformers voice Actor from some work on animated.

    Two actors who would make wonderful Megatrons
    Kurtwood Smith (best known as Red Foreman from That 70s Show)
    Simon Templeman (best known as Kain from the Legacy of Kain game series)

    They are very separate and different approaches - Mcfarlane's are all roughly 7-inch scale, while Jazwares has a 4-inch line and a 6-inch line. McF and Jazwares larger figures are comparable, Jazwares are a bit more Marvel Legends like & often feature facial expression swaps, while McF's go for a vaguely more Figuarts like skeleton with ballsocket torso motion.

    Yeah I had forgotten about Meltdown!

    Honestly, the idea of a Russian Megatron would work in a strange way. I haven\'t read the IDW comics, but from what I\'ve heard of them, he almost comes off as a Lenin-esque figure.

    Thanks for answering my question! I always appreciate hearing your thoughts! I’m glad to hear that TJ is a Warpath fan too. I also started picking up Siege Reflector and messing with him a lot. I have 3, but I keep picking up the same one. I’m weird like that. Thanks again guys!
