This'll give you a good idea of what ol'one eye will look like in the new movie. Kinda feels like it's how Megatron's body should've been in the first movie with Shockwave's head and a purple colour scheme.

He's my favourite con from the Furman IDW run, so I hope they get him right!

I'm also quietly confident that this will open the door for a generations figure.

Robot mode looks decent aside from having 2 hands.

He may have 2 hands, but he still has his gun arm!

I quite like it, personally.

Would still prefer a Generations figure and the lack of one so far is pretty much unforgivable.

Why does he have a hosepipe coming out of his chest? Is it so he can water the plants of war and bring the lush grass of destruction to a lustrous green?

It comes out of his back?

It doesn't bode well that I couldn't tell which way round the figure was facing!

But, in the interest of balance and fairness:

It looks defined, unlike the film TF because it's a toy.
U know the onscreen adaptation will be an aborted featus of mechanical parts having an orgasm...

And you could tell this with other characters from these movies? I'm impressed.

I think these characters are just some sort of mass elaborate Rorschach test. Bay is trying to get inside our heads, see what makes us who we are.
