Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  RC85747 : (22 February 2017 - 07:08 AM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

@  Black Hat : (21 February 2017 - 04:05 PM)

(I haven't read IDW at all please don't sue me)

Shocknado, awesome.

I hope at least some of these guys get Warrior class figures, Cyclonus chief among them.

It looks like Menasor is just Motormaster and the Drag/Break duo?

Also if they're still doing mission redecos, I'd like a Lunar Force Strongarm.

We saw that Menasor is also only composed of 4 bots at the first official art leak. And Galvatronus there clearly has the same leg design for both legs. Ultrabee has Grimlock lower body. It looks like all of the combiners are made of 4 guys with a torso, two arms and a lower body.

 

I'm guessing Shocknado is a fusion of Cyclonus and Shockwave, if only because he is completely purple instead of a color mix like the other two-guy combiners.

Menasor is strange mainly because he appears to be made of Motormaster, Drag Strip, and then both a Breakdown-esque and Wildrider-esque guy, but we got one of the 'Con Crash Combiners as "Wildbreak", who seems like he should be covering the latter two, with Dead End as the fourth. But this picture kind of implies - huh, I wonder if it's Motormaster, Drag Strip, Wildbreak-the-Breakdown proxy and Offroad. Those legs are pretty truck-y.

 

Galvatronus is intriguing and I'm glad to see it used (presumably) in fiction, with Cyclonus' behind-the-scenes control of Cybertron.

 

Shocknado seems like he should be a fusion of Shockwave and someone, but I don't see any Shockwave in either half, or the head design. Maybe we're getting an RID Shockblast or something.

 

Ultra Bee, Menasor and Galvatronus being classified as Crash Combiners certainly lends credence to the idea that even the big main combiners are going to be released as smallish toys - which is disappointing but not surprising, if correct.

 

EDIT: Ugh, stupid Creedence.

Yeah, I didn't even look at that, but nothing matches between model and headshot on Shocknado. So my guess is the inset picture is one of the components' art incorrectly stuck in there.

 

EDIT: Also I wasn't smart enough earlier to compare Menasor to Dragbreak, so clearly Wildbreak is the fill-in for the deceased Breakdown, and I'm definitely betting the legs are Offroad. It would even make sense for him to be a big truck to match up with Grimlock being a big tyrannosaur in Ultra Bee.

 

Also also: huh. Galvatronus and Menasor are rendered like their legs are individual vehicles, with wheels on both the insides and outsides of the legs, but Ultra Bee clearly only has half a Grimlock on each side, as evidenced by his adorable flailing dinosaur arms.

So, Galvatronus could be Cyclonus's endgame, using his mind control powers to not only manipulate the Council, but to also make himself a combiner. My theory, at least.
 
Though, look closely at Galvatronus's arms. Don't they look kinda like blue-colored Vehicons?

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

It looks to me like Motormaster will be forming the pants, rather than the torso, of Menasor, leaving the torso to be someone else.

I know about the art work with 4 Stunticons, but it still looks like to me Menasor and Galvatronus are standard 5-bot combiners: torso + 2 arms + 2 legs. It's just UltraBee that has Grimlock forming both legs.

But Menasor's two legs are identical. Surely a five limb combiner wouldn't have this?
