With the status of the rest of the Transformers Animated line still in limbo in the US(Hasbro is trying to bring the rest of the figures out, like Wingblade Prime), here’s more salt to rub in the wounds! Disciples Of Boltax has posted a scan from the upcoming Allspark Almanac II, showing the resin prototype for the triple changer Megatron from Transformers Animated. Publicly unknown until a few days ago, this figure has been canceled, but we at least get to see the resin prototype of “what could have been”. Here’s more from Jim Sorenson, author of the Almanac(s):Finally, and I’m being intentionally cagey here, a page from part two. The audience at BotCon flipped out when we showed them this one, the prototype to the triple changer Marauder Megatron toy. Sadly, this idea had to be abandoned by Hasbro when the line ended at Season Three, but isn’t this just a gorgeous model? I am incredibly grateful to Hasbro for sharing this and other really cool designs.
