They should've did this with Soundwave and Blaster, and then made individual games their cassette agents.

Problem is, blaster and Soundwave are recognizable, they're not the faces of the brand. Prime and Megatron are.

But they may make a blaster vs Soundwave set down the line, maybe out of the gamegear and gameboy.

It's interesting (to me anyway) that Prime's the very first PSX model, only released in Japan, with an S-video port built in.

Motto: "The war is not won by who is toughest it is about courage and how smart one is"
Weapon: Ionic Blaster
this is what we have so far:
Genesis = Megatron
PlayStation = Optimus Prime


what i am wondering is what characters would be used for these consoles (and handhelds)
N64= ???
SNES / super Famicom = ???
HMM who would be the SNES : Starscream possibly due to coloration
NES/ Famicom=???
Game Boy family ( original, Pocket, color , advance, Advance SP, Micro, NDS, NDs lite)= ??? ( though who ever it is will have the best alternate mode)
own :
too many but too little
wants :
SG soundwave, AM 25 Nemesis Prime, cloud roadbuster ( i want to repurpose it as energon ironhide )

want but cant get: SGMF God Ginrai( until an 2015/ 2016 Generations figure comes out), OTFCC Defensor (unless someone can repaint Cybertron Optimus Prime)

Ehm, not that I'm buying any of this, but would it not have been better to have Shockwave incarnated in this?

The cable to his armcanon would have made more sense IMHO.

The gray plastic color of OPSX vs the black of Megatrondrive really hurts the alt mode, as you can see so much better all the "cracks" where parts line up. Still hella cool, tho.

It would be really neat if these were emulator devices that could play Sega and PSX roms/disc images, but no, they're just straight up high end, expensive transforming action figures. Although, I do recall someone saying Megatron has a working USB port and is probably another Device Label Blaster kinda thing.

Either way, too expensive, too silly for me.

It's getting hard to resist buying Megadriveatron. His botmode looks to be bigger than I thought.
