According to Powered Convoy over at, he has received an e-mail from Hobby Link Japan stating that they will be adding the orange tip to the end of MP-05 Megatron. Here's what the e-mail read:


I'm sorry to inform you that we will be making any
adjustments necessary to the item in order to comply with US
customs law. Even though it is packed in robot mode, it can still be transformed into a realistic looking gun and thus would require an orange tip at the end of the barrel. This is evident in Hasbro's TF Classics Megatron that although his alt mode does not resemble a real gun but it still has a
bright orange tip.

Thanks for your understanding.

UPDATEWe have received word that this may be false. To see a recent e-mail from HLJ stating that this will only happen at the request of the buyer, click the Discuss button.

Please consider this a rumor until HLJ can issue a proper statement in regards to the orange cap.

Ever since fans learned that the upcoming Transformers Movie would be a reality, they agreed on two things. They wanted Peter Cullen back as Optimus Prime and Frank Welker back as Megatron. Well it looks like fans will only get part of their wish. It looks like Welker will not be backj as Megatron. Welker posted the following on his own website back on December 12, 2006:

"I am not really sure what's happening with the "Transformer" movie other than my talented friend Peter Cullen has been cast. Presently, I have not been offered any roles. They are doing a new series based on our old shows which neither Peter nor I were cast. I think Corey Burton is playing the new Megatron. He is a wonderful voice talent and a great guy, so it's nice to be replaced by folks you like at any rate."

Also notice that Welker mentions that Corey Burton will be playing the part of Megatron in a new Transformers series.

Keep in mind none of this has yet to be confirmed and it is only rumor at this time. The main reason being that Welker made these comments back on December 12, 2007 and on January 8, 2007 IESB reported that Welker was days away from signing on as Megatron.
