Greetings, fellow Seibertronians! We have a neat treat for you all today. Seibertron.com forum members -WonkoTheSane- and Mad Project have notified us that YouTube reviewer Ray Siow has published a review of the upcoming Transformers Generations Selects Super Megatron from Takara Tomy. Please note, this review is in Chinese. Ray gives us a look at this new figure, the first ever of the Super Megatron character from the "Battlestars" manga and story pages, the fiction that accompanied the "Transformers: Return of Convoy" line of toys in Japan back in 1991. We get to see Super Megatron in his robot mode, as well as the conversion into Ultra Megatron, and Ultra Megatron Omega, thanks to a face-swapping gimmick, and reversible chest panel, and a few other modular and poseable parts to differentiate the three evolutions of the resurrected Decepticon Tyrant. Super Megatron's alternate modes include a spaceship and a tank, both of which are also apparently very customizeable in appearance and load-out. The Super Megatron Omega face is a reference to Megatron's battle mask in the live action Transformers: The Last Knight movie. This figure is due out in Japan any day now and should be shipping from Hasbro Pulse for U.S. buyers by the end of September 2020. Enjoy the review for yourself below.



Have you already pre-ordered Super Megatron for your own collections? If not, has this in-hand review convinced you to track one down? Let us know in the discussion forum, and as always, stay tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest news in all things Transformers!

Really??? With all that struggling the reviewer had to do I hope Megatron comes with a shoe horn. :-P I will have zero intention swapping faces on this Megatron.

Regardless on the what this Megatron represents I STILL SAY the tip of his weapon barrel should have matched the paint on his legs...'nuff said! :VEHI:

That means the screw mount or mushroom peg thos is swivelling on is too tight and needs to be a tick and a hair longer to allow the spin, but I agree with Decepticon Stryker that the premise of the engineering was a beautiful design that should y not be forgotten.

Part of me was starting to regret the pre order. I am not in any way connected to the Japanese lore behind this, but man is this a sweet looking Megatron, and even eithout the face this still gives me "Generations Movie Megatron" vibes and I am back on board for this.

I'm actually excited for tomorrow's TF Tuesday on Pulse, and the next one as well. Since pretty much everything leaked or speculated has been revealed, even if these are toys I'm not interested in, it will nice to be surprised with something new.

I'm in the same boat, I like surprises.

Although, just saying, it would be really awesome to actually have somethink like a SS Selects figure, or even a Cyberverse one. Like maybe a SS Skywarp from Blitzwing to complete the main seeker trio as completely different molds, or one of the Constructicon repaints from RotF, a Nightwatch Optimus Prime, something like that. And Cyberverse wise, how about a Megatron X or Dark Hot Rod?

Is that too much to ask?

I share your excitement, o.supreme. If I'm honest I'm hoping for another Siege seeker or even a 2-pack, but would love to be blown away by something like Black Zarak.

The one thing we haven't seen this year in Selects is a leader figure, so that is a possibility for one of the 2 reveals.

Because selects is aimed specifically towards collectors, I don't think it would be out of the realm of possibility to see a SS selects someday. But Cyberverse being the current line for kids, I doubt we'll see something like that.

Unless they have redone that particular pair of joints, don't count on it too much. The shoulder itself houses a soft ratchet, but the connection to the body is a simple mushroom peg on TR Galvatron:

I don't know if it's still a mushroom joint or not, but if it is it's now being pinched in between the front and back halves so there should be at least some more friction there if they haven't built a ratchet into it.

Studio Series is technically a Generations line so it's entirely possible one day. I like the idea of doing the Constructicon variants this way. Plus we're overdue for a Nemesis Prime in the SS line. I wonder if they could retool WfC Earth Soundwave into Bumblebee movie Soundwave? I could also see Nightmare Megatron from the RotF mold, might look good against Nightwatch Optimus Prime.

If Selects does SS I would like a TLK Hot Rod in G1 colors. And even though I wouldn't buy it, a Nightwatch Optimus out of the voyager mold would be nice. And also, IIRC in the 1st DoTM trailer we got our 1st look at Sentinel inside the Ark and he was yellow. I would like to see a yellow variant of his voyager figure as well. Maybe that and Nightwatch Prime could get released in a 2-pack. Those colors go well together anyway.

If a Studio Series Selects line became a thing, above all else I want another shot at Camaro style Cliffjumper.

I was about 10 years old when the 2007 movie came out, I liked the franchise at that point Energon was my introduction funny enough but I do remember watching a little bit of Beast Wars, no Armada but I only became more involved with Cybertron so I was really hyped during the 2007 marketing (my best childhood Transformers memories were the pre-release marketing for the first 3 films).

Cliffjumper came out and was a gift I still have, his doors broke off though but he's in a tub somewhere in my room.

Image


However, I loved the character even more thanks to the Reign of Starscream comic which is a series I really love and personally think is some of the best comics we got in the franchise in general. (Starscream really shines here, Dreadwing and Arcee are also pretty cool here)

Cliffjumper was so bad-ass to child me, and I was always hopeful for his survival since his fate was left ambiguous.

Image

Image

His flashback appearences in other comics just cemented that more, in other continuities I prefer Cliffjumper to be similar but overall different to Bumblebee in physical appearance but in this continuity I really, really loved the two as these bash-brothers even if the idea isn't seen that much overall.


Image

I prayed for his inclusion in ROTF and DOTM, which got to the point where I personally considered Dino to be Cliffjumper (his design screams it by being a red Autobot with a similar enough appearance to Bee, he's not really "Mirage" by all accounts anyways) and still do today much like how I now personally consider ROTF Jolt to actually be DOTM Que due to their similar enough colors and appearance alongside the former's lack of personalty and presence in ROTF even if the ideas are not canon, another more recent idea is TLK Long Haul being the same guy as the Garbage Truck Decepticon from DOTM.


So uh overall 2007 Cliffjumper is actually pretty important to me and I'm still a tad irritated we didn't get much more of him in ROTF and DOTM (in both merchandise and media representation)

Well I tried to post the images from BBTS but I'm not so tech savy as many of you! :-P


Any way this set is a total buy for me! Now a hot pursuit partner for Prowl...awesome! :KREMZEEK: :VEHI:

Since I'm happy with my Classics collection for the most parts these sort of repaints are far more appealing than the original version.

I was trying to check the similarities on the paint for heads on Sunstreaker and Spin Out. :-? :VEHI:

Definitely not the SELECTS two-pack I was hoping for (hint hint)
Image
But Cordon and Spinout do look pretty cool. I probably won't be getting these just because I really don't need three Sunstreakers (no matter how cool they look) and my transformers budget is already stretched pretty thin as it is. Cordon is pretty tempting though not gonna lie.

Like any set out there I wager Ebay sellers to split up this set for anyone that want's just one figure or the other. :VEHI:

Entertainment Earth is selling Red Wing and although for me the price was about 70.00 dollars Canadian, I made the purchase on him, he's worth 70 dollars to me compared to Ebay listings and other sellers for over 100.

I ain't missing out on my Red boi again.

Welp, guess I'll have to pick up Tigertracks. I may not be able to afford my planned out MP shelf, I can still do a CHUG Diaclone shelf if they reveal a Delta Magnus and Road Rage :lol:
