Move over Autobots, the Decepticons are coming to Takara Tomy's Super GT Line! Well at least one of them is, and naturally it's Megatron. The CyberGundam Blog has posted new magazine scans that reveal Megatron and his Race Queen. The actual figure hasn't been revealed, just an illustration of Megatron using their retooled Alternity Optimus Prime mold and his black and purple clad Race Queen. Also pictured in the scans is Super GT Optimus Prime figure.

:shock:

I wonder who to feel more sorry for: Megatron for using the body of his nemesis, or Optimus for having his body used by no more than 3 Decepticons now; Nemesis Prime, Motormaster and now Megatron.

So they're going to use the same mold for every single character? That's even more fail than the Alternity line. #-o

When I first saw Alternators, I said to myself, "Well... they're not perfect, but they're probably as good as a robot alt mode one can expect for having such a realistic vehicle mode".

But then Masterpieces appeared on the scene, blowing that idea out of the water.

Alternity seems no different to me than Alternators... just these really clunky, kibbley... things.
Really hard for me to get into them personally. As with Alternators, I never see me getting one.

Although... I'd like this all more if they come with the "racing queens" in the same way that Kiss Play did.
And the smart thing about them being racing queens too... you don't need them to pose much or be able to sit in the seats. Those women are pretty much there to do what they're doing in the promo images... Stand there and look pretty as the racers rev their engines.

Still, I just see no reason for the bot modes, especially the lower leg areas, to be so haphazardly "who cares" in design.

Maybe because a robot that has realisticaly transformed from a car is bound to have car parts? Unlike TF prime show designs where all that mass just shifts into thin air? (sorry, subspace) :P

I love alternity, always have, but I do wish at least GT megs could've used a new mold...even a re-tool of his own original. Still big cannon=nice!

Nice lady figure too, good use of black and purple. Is she also villainous I wonder?

If he's a brand new mold, he might be worth getting. However, I wouldnt pay the over 100$ asking price.
That's more expensive than the goddamn MP Lambor!

That's true. Why didn't I buy lambor for eighty when I I preordered these guys for 114 each. Isnit because its prime and fortress maximus. or because i didnt think masterpiece sideswipe is a masterpiece. if it wss called alternity sideswipe, maybe ill bite. Them calling a masterpiece the size of a binaltech is hardly a binaltech. I was also disappointed of the mp10 too. Soo small! Gotta go back and pick up the original mps. Love the huge size

And not sure why many of you complain about the nibbles. This is what makes these transformers toys unique. Everything about the alternate mode is still there. Realistic vehicles will have these nibbles somewhere. In most of my robot posses, I stick out certain parts, ie shoulder pads, leg nibbles, weapons, front panels, wings, etc. , to make them more bulky. Strong, bulky robots are awesome. Isn't that the reason many of you bought city commanders trailers, add on kits, and extra accessoroes and weapons. What's worst, many of you bought kits that you have to take apart in alternate mode and you complain about a little kibble that is supposed to remain with the robots in any mode. I don't know but some of you are inconsistent in your kibble complaints. Just my thoughts

Eh, I wouldn't really say MPs blow Alts/BTs out of the water, considering MPs doesn't have the need to incorporate car interiors, working doors/hoods/boot and steering mechanism into their designs. Though the last few did sucked when they ditched those gimmicks.

I've been working on a fan-fict for over 10 years, and this single release has altered it in so many ways. /excited!!

Well said. ;)^ And TBH, I also like Alternity. Originally, I bought "Dai Atras" because I wanted a Dai Atlas for my collection. And reading up on the series, I ended up buying "Ultla Magnus" while wishing the other three were available on TFsource.

As for the Transformers GT line, I was also expecting them to use a different model for him. But assuming that the team he will represent uses the same model racer, this is pretty much understandable. However, I wonder if they pushed back Fortress (or was it Maximus?) so he can be a "wave 2" guy.

And even then... I will only give the big guy any sympathy is when they even use his body to make Bumblebee. ;)
