The star of the 2017 Toy Fair was that sweet Leader Megatron. There were still some questions though, like how complex is the toy, does it follow the more streamlined approach to engineering a lot of Age of Extinction toys had (like Hound, Drift and Galvatron)? And how many flame accessories does he come with?
Well we have answers for you and they are all the best answers possible. A picture of the back of the leader class toy's box appeared on instagram and it shows that he does indeed come with 2 flame accessories, for both his jet thrusters and it reveals his complexity. Leader Megatron will take approximately 30 steps to convert (depending on what Hasbro considers a step). This is leagues beyond any toy from the previous toy line or any Transformers toy of the past 5 years.
Also, the back of the box shows us his bio and that his wave mate is the redeco of the Age of Extinction Leader Optimus Prime that was also on display at Toy Fair. It also shows his battle face which has the faceplate we previously saw but it also shows that his ram horns are poseable and can be brought closer to his face to complete the look.
Some exciting news for Masterpiece fans courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath - MP-36; Takara's second attempt on giving Decepticon Leader Megatron a Masterpiece figure, finally has a release date announced according to Amazon-Japan!
As you can see here, the announced release date for the figure is April 1st - rest assured, that's no joke. April foolery aside, tell us if this release date gets you any more excited for the figure in the forums below!
New York Toy Fair might be over, but our coverage of the event isn't!

We knew from TFNation 2016 that Toys Alliance were working on a second giant non-transforming figure, after their Optimus Prime - as covered here - but we now also have the company's official Facebook page sending out another teaser for their upcoming MAS-02 Megatron! Check it out below.
Many were both confused and surprised that Titans Return Ramhorn was not a datapad to interact with Titans Return Blaster, mirroring the interaction of the G1 toys, and instead having Ramhorn just be a Titan Master. Well, you have to give Hasbro some credit because what they give you instead is something for the ages. You see, Japan had designed a ton of head only characters, here is a diagram of the lot of them.
Only a few made it to production with a finished product such as Lione...
Both of which are in the Titans Return line.
Well, take a look at this head, which was never made in the G1 era, and which turned into a rhinoceros.
This is the design used in the Ramhorn head the Titan Master turns into.
So this head is not just a take on G1 Ramhorn in Titans Return but it is also that Japan only character which was to be released with Lione, Shuffler and the others. And it is finally happening 30 years later. Like Shuffler and Lione, the animal the head would have turned into back in G1 is now a Rhinoceros vehicle for the Titan Master to interact with.
So this is a deep cut from Hasbro showing that old designs we think will never see the light of day actually get brought back.
