While they did design new parts for this, they could've gone that one step further and gave a swivel or something to the backpack to point those tank treads the other way around to match better. I mean, it's not like they haven't more than made their money back on this base mold by now. I think it's been used more than either Seeker mold lol.

Following the Orgin Miner Megatron body images, we finally get to see what he looks like with his Head on. This new shot just in off the Asia SNS shows the completed robot mode with new head, remolded SIEGE parts, full deco, and his weapon that appears to have been upgraded as well with a drill bit. We don't much esle about this than what you see, but we can only speculate that this follows the other Origin releases we have seen from Buzzworthy and the exclusive 2-packs. - Read the Full News Story

Something has been bothering me about this set of pictures for "Miner" Megatron and I finally figured it out. That's NOT a complete copy. That's the headless and weaponless copy from before but with upgrade parts. The triangular back cannon is from one kit that I can't seem to find anymore. As is the sword filler piece so that the sword pegs into the arm as shown. The drill is an unpainted copy of the drill you can get on Ebay. The head is a version of the miner head you can get on Ebay as well just without the caution stripes on the "eyebrows". 

So yeah, this isn't what we should expect for this figure.

Yeah the head was designed to look like miner Megatron but that head is an EXACT match for the upgrade head that's being sold. Detail for detail it's exact other than the caution stripes. 

The triangular back cannon clearly does not have factor paintwork.

Again, the sword once removed from the tank barrel would need a separate filler piece in order to plug into the arm as seen here. One that was being sold online at one point along with the triangular back cannon.

The drill again is an exact match for the drill being sold online. It's just not painted the same.

You can even see other pieces from the kits on one of the other Megatron figures. The leg missile pods, the shoulder missile pods, the forearm flaps and the miner crown on the head. So they took extra parts and just slapped them on the headless figure to "complete" it.

Wait, what? The mega-madness over Origin Miner Megatron is not done yet. First the headless test shots, then the other figure with head that may or may not be a custom, and now this! Two more images showing not just robot, but the tank mode too. - Read the Full News Story

That's funny. BaCon you must be messing with me at this point lol. 

I post that, go get dinner, get back on the computer and boom, you post something seemingly confirming exactly what I was going on about.

The colors look better and more uniform. The hips are assembled correctly. The new accessories look like injection molded plastic and not 3D printed parts. The paint look professional on the new parts. The pickaxe has tabs to hold the arms together in drill tank mode. It looks good. Or as good as can be expected from the Siege Megatron mold. 

The new parts look like they can be assembled in a different way for tank mode though. The head of the pickaxe should come off from what I'm seeing and that should allow the full drill to attach to the front pickaxe handle or something maybe. I don't know. I just think that the parts don't look like they're being utilized properly for tank mode. That's an awfully long peg on the back of that one part otherwise and looks like it should be able to be inserted fully into the pickaxe handle once the head is removed. Maybe the turret is supposed to be flipped around the other way too to allow for the drill to pivot up and down.

Watch you post more pics while I was typing all this out.

The Senator Ratbat is a new reveal that appears to be a partial of the Studio Series Scourge mold. This is said to be a shared Convention exclusive that will likely appear at various events this Summer. - Read the Full News Story

Okay so I was right about how the drill was formed for vehicle mode. I was just hoping that the pickaxe head wouldn't just be put to the side like that though. Although I don't exactly know what I was expecting otherwise. Even still, this drill tank won't be all THAT effective. 

Senator Ratbat is a nice surprise. Shame the wings still can't articulate upwards like the character model. It's also pretty funny that the little thrusters are on wrong on some of the actual figure shots.

If you want these, buy the Rise of Tyranny 2-pack from Amazon, and the Humble Origins 2-pack from Pulse (if it comes back in stock). The thing is, with Rise of Tyranny you're getting two voyagers for $70 on Pulse (reasonable) and with Humble Origins you're getting a deluxe and a voyager for $55 on Pulse (also reasonable). But Amazon got the prices swapped, so you're getting two voyagers for $55 on Amazon (an amazing deal) and a deluxe and a voyager for $70 on Amazon (a ripoff).

TL;DR buy Megs & Ratbat from Amazon and Shockwave & Orion from Pulse.
