So the two-pack Megatron could have something to do with this picture from a while back?

Cool beans. I'd dig it.

Tank Megatron + Mirage. Both look pretty dodgy TBH...

edit:

On the other hand, this Megatron makes a good Bludgeon.

I hope that gun-arm is simply mistransformed. Mirage looks like spindly ass.

Megatron: Looks like somebody puked on his face!
Mirage: I'll reserve judgment for the colored version.

Megatron and Mirage don't look too good, but I'll have to see Megatron's final colours. Pity about the gun arm.

sweet, Mirage's really nice and slim, Hasbro's finally going back (just a little bit) toward BM and TransTach designs :D

best Megs Tank so far as well, pity we can't see the face yet

Don't care for Mirage. But I agree with Denyer; this Megs actually makes a great Bludgeon. I just may get one.

Eesh...I had reasonably high hopes for mirage but all he looks like is a jumped up mini-con.
Mega-ego on the other hand looks like a remodeled cybertron demolishor.

From what ive seen of the other figures in the classics line il bet this will be the greatest thing to hit tranformers since...um....umm...I dunno, but its great!!!
Once upon a time, there was a little girl who hadn't seen her mother for seven years.
One day, on the way to her mother, she met a wolf.
The wolf asked her if she would be taking the path of pins, or the path of needles.
When the girl said she would be taking the path of pins, the wolf hurried of down the path of needles, and ate up the little girls' mother.

that form kinda suits mirage in my thinking, he is a rich cybertronian who also is espionage correct? well most espionage people are slender, and maybe that was the theory behind mirage's design? so he could fit into nooks and crannies when he is in stealth mode (invisible)?

Good ATT modes but the Robot modes are terrible.

I hope that full color will correct this, as for the design right now I am not digging this so far.

Mirage isn't too bad. I like when the robots have some original styling ("original" also meaning "not ripped off of some Gundam"). I just wish the feet weren't so clunky.

Ooh! Jetfire looks like he's a heavy assault trooper. Shame I'm not picking up many more big tfs until I find a way to unload a lot of them, aside from ebay.

Jetfire looks fairly good, excellent jet mode, but I still don't like Mirage.

Definitely Jetfire - nice looking in both modes. Mirage looks pretty cool, but I'm not at all sure about Megs. Too green.

That Jetfire is quite impressive, if I'm not mistaken that is the design from Don Figueroa that we see featured in the new Stormbringer series. I'm quite pleased to see Hasbro has been tapping Figueroa for toy design as of late. Mirage is kind of wirey but I'm not crying too much over it because my Mirage needs are full-filled in the alternators version. As for the battle pack Megatron he looks like a reasonably well designed transformer but he would be preferable as Bludgeon rather than as ol'Meggy.
