Voyager Megatron in G1 Form?

Postby mydutchtouch » Wed Feb 07, 2018 10:09 am

Hey Everyone,
I'm new here. I personally own and love my Takara/Tomy Voyager MP-28 Hot Rodimus, and my Kubianbao MP10-V Optimus Prime. They work well together.

But what I really need is a Voyager class Megatron in the G1 form. From my research nothing exists yet. Love the Masterpiece Mp-36 Megatron, and so wish there was a Voyager version.

Anybody know of a Voyager Megatron?

The only thing of the sort, in a realistic gun form, is Toyworld's Hegemon.

There are no official options for a G1 voyager gun Megatron.

The Henkei and United versions are voyager sized, but use a futuristic gun mode. The Titans Return version is a tank/plane triple changer.

Oye, a fellow Dutchie? Welkom! :x

The chances of a Megatron as a toy of a realistic firearm are pretty much non-existent because of the gun laws here in the US. Such toys are outlawed (much like they are in the Netherlands), since the 1990's, but Hasbro did manage to circumvent the laws with him twice:

Classics Megatron

Left: Hasbro Classics, Right: TakaraTomy Henkei

That one is based on a NERF gun, a brand which Hasbro owns. The Classics colors are a law requirement (ironically they would no longer do nowadays), but TakaraTomy in Japan where the laws are more relaxed is free to use normal "gun colors". The next United version, again from TakaraTomy eliminates a lot of the red from the Henkei version, but the most recent Hasbro version brought it back in full force:

That one's part of the Platinum Series "One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall" set, based on a scene in the 1986 Movie. Just take our word for it :P

The next toy circumvents the law due to his size:

2010 Line Legends Class Megatron (aka Reveal the Shield Megatron)

He's TINY, like 3 inches or 8 cm tiny. He fits in the hand of the first Masterpiece Starscream (MP-3)! Nothing else to add to that, except the Japanese versions do away with the orange tip, another US law requirement.

All his other toys have been tanks, jets, trucks, cars, you name it (he may be the most versatile TF character ever!), but no longer a gun. If you want a gun Megatron of a decent size, you'd have to turn to TakaraTomy's Masterpieces, or so-called "Third Parties" who make figures based on Transformers without being explicitly called such (copyrights, you know?). We have a special section for those:

Good luck on your hunt!

Thanks for the help guys! I’d say the Hegemon is the closest to the G1 Megatton, but not great. Here’s hoping Takara or Kubianbao sell a voyager masterpiece with the orange plug at some point.
