Weapon: Gattling Gun
Courtesy of ACToys we get a first look at Transformers DOTM Megatron: Dark Energon Edition, a Takara Tomy repaint of ROTF Leader Class Megatron. No details yet, but it seems likely this will be another in their recent line of Asian market exclusives, similar to their repacking of 2007 Movie Leaders Optimus Prime and Megatron in DOTM packaging. Small image mirrored below.

Yeah.... But I still want this! I liked the ROTF Megatron, but I missed out on it. Then the Shadow Command Megatron came out and it was 10000 times more badass! This one looks every bit as awesome, but with purple instead of red! I want it! :CON:

Well I dont give a damn that it's just a repaint but I still want him cause I missed out on him thinking there might be a new Leader class Megs and chances are we will never get one this year or the next year either -_-...

Almost Takara, almost.

He should've been in DOTM colors, so sand/rusty like.
And they should've also remolded that horrible left skinny squid thing. Maybe add the boomstick.

Still can't believe how they screwed up the DOTM line, with those horrible completely NOT screen accurate weapons.

Jetwing Prime, Ultimate Prime, Voyager Prime, not one of them looks like DOTM Prime. Sigh, I give up. ROTF might've been the way lesser movie but the toyline was way better.

I actually like how it looks, but not enough to import it.

Admittedly, I may just be starved for a decently-sized TF: Prime Megs. Can we get some Decepticons at the Weaponizer size?
We're all just products of our programming... And there always seem to be a few glitches.

Well, we may not get DOTM Megs or Shockwave in LC, but we will get G1 edition SCreamer and this. Thank you Takara :x , you made me more loyal to you than the Bumblebee loving Hasbroke :P , because I knew the DOTM line is still alive in Asia. ;)

Anyway, did you guys know he's based on his Prime counterpart's DE repaint?

Or they could give him the European voice chip. Unlike most other electronic Movieverse toys where every line but their name got snipped. ("Jetfi-" "-tarscream!") Megatron dropped the "I am" but got an awesome laugh more evil than the Animated Leader.

Or, they could give him a new chip with a DotM quote to complete the trifecta of Megatrons. (though all represented by a single mold) Good lines would be:

- *grwll* All hail Megatron!
- You know what you are told, which is nothing!
- He is my greatest triumph...
- Here we are... fight us now!
- YOU DARE LECTURE ME, SLAVE?
- It will be me, it will always be me!
- THIS IS MY PLANET!
- Who would you be without me, Prime?

It looks awesome...and then I remembered the arm. A couple of good arms and he'd be a kick-ass bot. Maybe a good base for someone to customise an IDW "rebuilt" Megatron or DJD Tarn?
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

I don't own this mold, and I LOVE this new color scheme. I'm a sucker for the black-purple-silver combination. I hope this gets a domestic release (which I doubt), but I'll import if the price isn't prohibitive.
