Thanks to Seibertronian Cyberpath we bring to you new images of MP-36 Megatron, courtesy of Transformers Generations 2017! These very blurry images are a preview showcase for Takara Tomy products coming out in 2017. The cover includes Masterpiece Megatron, Optimus Primal, Grapple, Inferno, and Cheetor along with Legends Ginrai, Godbomber, Fortress Maximus, and Lio Convoy. The inside features such things as a Legends poster, a Beast Wars 20th Anniversary feature, a G1 comic feature, Live action movie 10th anniversary line feature, MP Megatron feature, and a Legends, Adventure and Unite Warriors feature. Check out the pictures mirrored below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!

Edit: We also got an exclusive piece of news from Guido Guidi himself from our forums:
Also, the G1 comic is written by Simon Furman (with art by me) :D

That's right Seibertronians: the legendary duo have written and drawn this comic! Check out the rough page of art below!

It isn't a MP comic, you can also see Windblade, Drift, and a few other Legends figures in the comic while the cover features Legends Lio Convoy, God Ginrai, and Fortress Maximus. Seems like they're just promoting new releases on the cover and blending everything together in the comic.

They haven't hid any angles. There are early pictures of Megatron at 90 degree angles from the front, back and side. Just go deeper into the thread.


fenrir72 wrote:Was the gun barrel really meant to be centered anyway?

Yeah, I didn't mean that the gun barrel was centered (or should be) on Meg's body. For this particular MP Release, it appears to be further off center than what looks good. Let me see if I can find the pics.

I guess that MP-05 is pretty far off center too. From the animation models, to my eye, the barrel should be right about half-way point between head and shoulder. MP-36 has the barrel pretty much just above the shoulder.

I was just commenting that the nice pictures Cyberpath posted make Megs look really good, but the picture angles hide just how far off-center the gun barrel is on the back.... And that bugs me (the so much off-center gun barrel, not the pic angles).

Well, I've already put my preorder in for him. And when TFSource had MP Shockwave for $100, I couldn't resist that either.
Can't wait to have these two and MP Soundwave together on a shelf.
That's got to be something on my "TF Bucket List".

There are two comics in this book. One by the dynamic duo of Simon Furman and Guido Guidi, and another by the major Japanese Transformers throwback duo of Masumi Kaneda and Ban Magami (the guys who did all of the original Japanese G1 manga from 1985-1992).

And here is the box art:

I would have probably gone with something more dramatic and less... expressive. But it doesn't really matter.

I'm surprised they didn't use the box art-based pose for the packaging, instead of the pose where he's doing The Mario.

Thought the same thing...
It could be legit, but obviously this isn't printed... If this is the real deal, it's just an electronic version.
Just looks a bit too sharp with the focus.
At the same time, this wouldn't be all that difficult to piece together in Ps.

LOL. I had preordered mine through A-E after it was mentioned that they'd insert the orange plug free of charge. I was still debating if I wanted them to go that route, and was leaning against it since a few folks including Seiberton mentioned that they never had issues importing without the plug. But after seeing that box, I'm pretty sure I'm going to have them insert it.

mp-05 had a pic of the gun on his box.
x-transbots cares. they put no gun images on the box and they pre-inserted orange caps at the factory so people could keep him mib.

I, myself, ordered from A-E last week; after a few emails with CS, I decided to allow them to insert the orange plug. They even mentioned about possibly using a certain tape that can easily be removed:

"we do carefully the job, however whole risk is on us. If the product gets damaged, we will replace it. We are still checking about what to use, one option would be easy orange tape (easily removable)."

I assume we have until they receive the product to decide if we want them to insert the plug? Easily removable orange tape would be awesome.
