Hasbro released a Kre-O Megatron (http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Megatron_(Kre-O
My question is, why is Megatron a truck? Why didn't they make Megatron a pistol? A lego pistol wouldn't be hit with all the restrictions the G1 Megatron faced...and would be safe for kids to play with since it would obviously not look like a gun.
First of all, welcome to Seibertron and congratulation for your first post.
If you asked this on 4chan's /toy/, you would have been dragged donwn the street to be stoned to death for asking such a question. However, we are on Seibertron and we are civilized.
Thus, allow me to answer in a most eloquent manner to explain the fact that Hasbro will never release a "G1 style" Megatron on American soil ever again:DUH, SHITSTORM CAUSED BY TOY GUNS AND LAWS AND SHIT!
May I also point out that making an official gun out of bricks will required the stupid but legally obligatory orange cap. The fact that we can ommit to put on the orange cap easely is a hornet nest Hasbro's lawers refuse to touch.
Still, you know what is the beauty of building bricks? YOU CAN BUILD ANYTHING! So, why not buy yourself the Kreo Megatron set plus some other Lego/Megablock sets and build your own G1 Megatron? If you have some Lego skills and the money to buy the appropriate bricks and sets, just go nut!
