BigBadToyStore.com has sent out some new information pertaining MP-05 Megatron.

Please read all the important information about Megatron listed below!

Due to United States Toy / Imitation Gun Laws, it is illegal for any business or individual to import the MP-05 Megatron because it does not have a blaze orange safety tip on the end of barrel. A copy of this law is listed at the end of this description. In order for BBTS to legally import this item, Megatron must be modified. A blaze orange safety tip will be added to the end of barrel. This orange tip will either be a custom made plastic plug that is permanently glued into the end of the barrel, or the barrel will be permanently painted with blaze orange enamel paint on the tip. The exact details of a plug versus painting have not been worked out yet because dimensions of the toy, and method of transformation are currently unknown, but it will be one or the other, and any additions will not hinder the transformation process.

Without this orange tip modification, US Customs will seize any incoming shipments for this item that they discover because it does not comply with US Laws, so we are providing a legal and risk-free solution to that problem.

This modification requires that all boxes will be opened, and the contents removed for modification. The factory tape seal will be cut, and some internal plastic packaging may be modified or cut. Collector's Grade packaging will not be available due to these modifications, and the normal Standard Grade description will not apply because the tape seals have been broken. We realize these modifications will slightly change the appearance of the toy, but we also realize that giving you a legal way to own this toy is much better than not owning it at all, or running the risk of US Customs seizing the item. We believe that the barrel of the gun will not be fully visible when Megatron is in robot mode, so it will probably not interfere too much with his appearance in robot mode. In gun mode, he obviously will have an orange barrel tip that is roughly 1/4" to 1/2" in length. While we do believe the scope will be included, we do not anticipate the silencer or gun butt to be included. If the silencer is included, it will also have an orange tip applied.

This is an aftermarket modification that does not involve Takara whatsoever, we initiated this modification to bring you an importable collectible. We will work to provide the highest quality plug addition or paint addition that we can, but because this is not part of the original manufacturing process, it will not be perfect. This modification is done at no expense to you, we are paying all costs associated with this and passing nothing on to you other than the ultimate legal Megatron collectible for just $99.99.

Now the fun stuff: Megatron will stand at around 12" tall - equal in size to his nemesis, Masterpiece Optimus Prime. In order to get such a hefty robot, this is going to be one huge gun! Megatron will be a Walther P-38, as he should be, and will be the defining action figure version of Megatron that we've always wanted. We are unsure if Takara will use die-cast metal parts, or if the item will be mostly plastic, but either way its going to be awesome. More details will be posted as we receive them!

Below is the actual law in regards to imitation toys, please remember that the BBTS solution to this problem is the only legal way in the USA for you to obtain this amazing item.

§ 1150.2 Prohibitions. No person shall manufacture, enter into commerce, ship, transport, or receive any toy, look-alike, or imitation firearm (‘‘device’’) covered by this part as set forth in § 1150.1 of this part unless such device contains, or has affixed to it, one of the markings set forth in § 1150.3 of this part.

§ 1150.3 Approved markings. The following markings are approved by the Secretary of Commerce: (a) A blaze orange (Federal Standard 595a, February, 1987, color number 12199, issued by the General Services Administration) or orange color brighter than that specified by the federal standard color number, solid plug permanently affixed to the muzzle end of the barrel as an integral part of the entire device and recessed no more than 6 millimeters from the muzzle end of the barrel.

(b) A blaze orange (Federal Standard 595a, February, 1987, color number 12199, issued by the General Services Administration) or orange color brighter than that specified by the Federal Standard color number, marking permanently affixed to the exterior surface of the barrel, covering the circumference of the barrel from the muzzle end for a depth of at least 6 millimeters."

    I've updated several galleries on this website to include some highly requested comparison pictures. The Transformers Classics galleries now include images featuring them side-by-side with their Generation One counterparts. I've also updated Transformers Cybertron Cryo Scourge gallery to include comparison shots with Cryotek from Robots In Disguise. Last but certainly not least, I finally got around to fixing the Landmine gallery (he was originally transformed incorrectly) ... plus there's a couple of new shots of him alongside BotCon Rhinox. Enjoy!

    The momentum that the Dreamworks Transformers Movie is slowly gaining is apparent with yet another interview that has popped up with the voice of Optimus Prime, Peter Cullen. This time NewsOK.com have taken to interview the voice actor veteran. The article goes on about Cullen's appreciation for the fans and about his role in the new movie.

    "(The filmmakers) were thinking more Hollywood big names. They did start to consider the original voice actors because of the enthusiasm and the ... stubbornness of the fan base. God, I'm grateful for those guys".

    He was asked to read a scene with Optimus Prime and Ironhide, a gutsy Autobot who was a close friend of Prime's, also played by Cullen in the original series.

    "The script assistant was there, and she started reading for Ironside, I said, ‘Excuse me, dear, do you mind if I read it?' Because I actually played this character.'" Cullen completed the read-through reading for both characters.


    Supplemental:
    Another interview with Peter Cullen has appeared on yet another site. This time The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette went face to face with the veteran Voice Actor. This will mark the third interview with Peter Cullen this month, as far as we have found this far!

    "If a kid gets excited, it’s probably not because of me unless he’s seen reruns. I think pretty much it’s people my daughter’s age, which would be mid-20s-to-mid-30s. It always amazes me and I am humbled by it. I never realized the impact Optimus Prime had".

    Seibertronian Spoonatron has found European Transformers Alternators in bubble packaging being sold for £9.99 each at UK budget fashion store TK Maxx:

    Just a quick heads up if anyone's after some cheap Alts. TK Maxx are selling them for £9.99. The one near me had Silverstreak and Decepticharge in Euro bubble packaging. Of course, they've only got Silverstreak there now

    Alternators Decepticharge has never been released in the UK, so although the distribution of toys sold at TK Maxx can be sporadic to say the least, if you have a TK Maxx in your area, you might want to check it out!
