Alternately, remember when Voyager Megatron looked like this for a few hours?



But really he looks like this:

WHY didn't they color him like SG Drift? I wanted to use him as SG Drift. What a wasted opportunity.

He kind of reminds me of Override.

By which I mean he likes dudes.

You know, if you look at it they sort of did color him as SG Drift, Mostly red body, black/grey limbs, red helmet with white face, not a lot of white on the ccar mode apparently. PRETTY SIMILAR.

Excellent work, Batman.


Anyway, This guy looks pretty cool. Sure, he's not as spot-on screen accurate as some would like, but I will often prefer Hasbro to engineer a no-cheat transformation as a priority. Also, I like how non-standard his bot mode kibble is. He's both hood-chester in both senses - the G1 Prowl sense and the G1 Sideswipe sense. I also like how the doors are on the forearms, and the roof/windshield ends up pretty unobtrusively on the undersides of the forearms. Glad he has a weapon from the show, even if it's not his buzz-saw (I'm pretty sure the CV version has that).

Unfortunately, I'll probably limit myself to buying new characters at the CV sizes, so I may not get this one.

Can't wait for Knock Out to come out, he's my favorite Decepticon from TF Prime.

This looks cool. I like 'Cons that aren't tanks and jets. And you can see in his weapon holding arm the windows do have hinges. What kind of car is he?

I don't think it's a real car, but this is what he looks like on the show.

Thanks. I figured it wasn't a real car, I should have worded my question better. Is he wave 2, 3 or later? Or do we know? There must be some distance between him and Cliff, being that they're both red cars.

I think a lot of people are misinterpreting that hinge. I'm pretty sure it's just what allows the windows/doors (one piece, it seems) to fold down from the roof/windshield to close the arm. I don't think we're getting any further arm transformation/compaction out of this guy.

Which is kind of fine to me. Feels like a development of the TFM Swindle transformation.

On the show's model, at least, the windows stay oriented up. So I don't think they're supposed to remain folded down for robot mode.

I guess this thread can be for the February Facebook reveals, rather then start a new one?

It looks like the legs are the roof and entire front of the car! That's awesome.

The first mainline that's actually better-looking than the First Edition. Let's hope that trend continues with Arcee.

4 sounds about the right amount of troopers to be led by the FE version.
