    I've never actually seen that prime 1 studio version before. I actually quite like it

    Not gonna lie but that Prime 1 head is giving me some good feelings about new Megatron. Dare I say he looks rather expressive. Thank you for bringing this image to my attention.

    I just like how it's got a mix of both the regular movie design with a more humanoid appearance. I just figured you might know where the image was from exactly. Was just wondering is all

    TF1's design is pretty bad and the one on the bottom is ugly as sin. No one is asking Megatron to look like a robot Hulk with a helmet. The one in middle however does peak my interest.

    It's designed by Josh Nizzi which I believe was commissioned by Prime 1 for their modern G1-inspired line. It wasn't the design they went for at the end though.

    Ah thank you. It's not exactly my favorite but I wouldn't mind if they used it again

    I get the nostalgia for fans of the 80's about the bucket helmet design but has always just been so stupid for me. I've never liked it, I thought TFP and TLK were a good blend of the original 07 film's design and g1 but I really do not want to see a human face with a metal bucket. It just kinda, is lame, to be completely honest. Atleast optimus always wore his mask in g1 so you never knew what he looked like. But, a dude with literally a dudes face and a regular helmet on his head never seemed as imposing.

    I never asked Megatron to look the way he did in 2007. But I'm glad it turned out that way.

    I believe TF5 face design was inspired by it.

    I'm strongly guessing it's fake. Anyone can post to 4Chan anonymously. I could go there right now and create an equally valid-sounding story. There's no accountability there, and I'm not sure that a reliable leak (TF or not) has ever come from there. That site makes Reddit look like a reliable source.

    I'm suspicious of Hailee Steinfeld's return. John Cena is a safe bet, but Hailee's character seems done. She had a complete character arc, and ended in a way that separated her from the TF conflict. Of course they could find a way to bring her back, but it would probably be contrived. Either she'd have to seek the TFs out (which seems unlikely since she made the decision to leave Bumblebee and go back to her family), or the TFs would have to seek her out (I'm not sure why they'd need to). Or they'd just meet again by pure coincidence.

    Overall it sounds plausible, even if it's coincidence. Considering Bumblebee was set in the late '80s, early '90s for the next movie is a solid guess. So are those particular robots appearing, and the smaller scale and settings. But I think whoever wrote that just made some educated guesses based on the last movie and Paramount/Lorenzo's statements, knowing some of them will probably come true. There's nothing too detailed or unique here. If they had gotten more specific with plot details ("the plot will involve looking for the crashed Ark", for example), I'd be more inclined to believe them. Since the leak specifically mentions January, I guess we'll know within a matter of weeks.

    I really wish they’d stop giving Megatron lots of pointy teeth.

    I'm curious if he'll be a jet or a tank.

    please actually pick something else, it'd be nice to see a return of TFA's gunship mode or even the DOTM styled Mad Max tanker truck or something.

    From the design I saw.... I don't remember seeing any kibble like treads or wings , it's just a very sci-fi version of his g1 robot mode, tho the gun barrel is still there, just shorter and not the fusion cannon may hinted that it can be some sort of cybertronian artillery cannon?

    Good news is that I saw it had a normal cybertronian face, I didn't see any sharp teeth as for now since I think the sharp teeth don't really work for g1 megatron

    but-but-but how else will we know for sure that's he's evil?! He's gotta have pointy monster teef!

    Why give him a proper character when you can just give him big pointy teeth, glowing red eyes and a mean voice.

    Well this happened, this one is quoted on page 1 too

    But still it's possible that due to the design show it having a close mouth, I didn't happen to notice the teeth


    As for evidence, this image link is the best proof I have so far on the shirt I was wearing and the pic I took at the convention
