Good old Siege Megatron. Many are tired of the mold but Hasbro is banking on you letting this new release slide since the newly revealed Transformers Shattered Glass Megatron has new parts to give the old mold a new alt mode. Plus with this redeco, you get the nice presentation for MOSC collectors and a special comic. All for $37 (he was originally $30 but that seems to have been a mistake). He is coming out October first of this year.

He can be ordered here: https://hasbropulse.com/products/transf ... iant-cover

MANY fans have reached out to us about this, we thank you all.

Includes: Megatron figure, Fusion Cannon, sword and shield accessories, and instructions.

So, SG Megs link brings up a 404 page.
Tried ordering twice and was extracted from cart. either they sold out That fast or the page wasn't ready for the influx of traffic.
Either way, i am SOL until it comes back up.


EDIT: Link went live again and i got my order in.

What's better, this alt mode or braodside's jet mode?

I have to say, I'm impressed. They really went the extra mile with this one.

Lolol definitely this one because they just shoehorned it in and Broadside's jet was part of the actual design

I love my Broadside but I never use his jet mode, and I mainly got him because I couldn't afford a fansproject assaulter at the time

I'll give them props for trying to make a jet mode :-? Not quite sold on it but I'll keep an open mind, now let's see SG Jetfire

...I can't believe they actually went the extra mile and made him a triple-changer for no reason other than some semblance of accuracy to the original, those absolute mad lads. I've already preordered this, and it looks like I did it just in time as the price has increased now, and after the similar situation with the ER Centurion Drone I feel like those who got orders in with the lower price will in fact only have to pay the lower price, so that's awesome. VERY curious to see how Starscream and Goldbug turn out now, hopefully the fact that they seem to be referencing the original molds more means that Starscream will 100% be a Tetrajet.

Also joke's on you, News Team, I've never bought this mold before!

I've said this on twitter, but his alternate mode is VERY similar to TF:P Megatrons' alt mode.

The figure looks nice, I like the paint job. There's at least more work gone into this than Blurr who only has a headswap with his repaint. It's clear that this is inspired by Energon Megatron.

But my god, the asking price from Hasbro in the UK? £34.99 is a bit much. To put it in perspective for the American buyers, that's the equivalent of $48. I was kinda happy to see that Pulse was being spread to other countries but the fact that Hasbro are charging UK fans a premium beyond the added price this already has, just doesn't sit well with me.

If they'd added about £4 to the original £23.99 of the Voyager price, roughly equivalent to what they added to the price for Americans, it'd be more acceptable (that's despite the fact that £23.99 is already higher than the American retail cost). It's a shame because I do kinda like the look of the figure but I cannot justify the price hike for a Voyager quality figure.

If it were like SS86 Hot Rod, who is smaller but has a much higher quality than pretty much any other Voyager we've had in a long time, then maybe it'd be okay. But with this Megatron that looks good but as a figure is largely just acceptable with a lot of hollow cavities? Nah.

Managed to get mine in for $30. Definitely digging this fellas and glad there was some effort put into making him close to the original version., though I’m hoping the wings don’t require partsforming.

looks like they will. There's a 5mm peg on both the sides and the tops of the wings, the side ones are for the spaceship configuration and the tops for the way they're oriented in robot mode.

Good attempt. Instead of a Tank accessory, he turns into an actual tank, but I don't see a sword. His Turret gun piece which doubled as a sword does not seem to be shown here even though it is stated to be there in the description.

For those wondering what this is trying to reference:

Americas price has gone up, hasbro makes sure fans in every country gets screwed these days XD


On a side note I didnt realise it's the Siege mold so I'm out on this one unless Hasbro some how throws a free figure in with him (it's not that far off what SG Prime and Ratchet cost me). Kapows saying prices off hasbro figures to receive price hikes (which for most cases they already have -especially charging the next size class up prices for the size below it for some)

Another Siege Megatron? NOOOOOOOOOOO! How many of these figures must remain unsold before Hasbro gets the message that we want something better?

Anyhoo, thoughts: The colors look OK, and the new wings/canopy look clever in helping to conceal the old H-treads. But - they're STILL there. It doesn't help that the robot thighs are completely exposed. This makes me think that the entire front section of the alt mode is going to flop around a lot, unless they engineered some way to keep the robot hip joints from moving. Otherwise - that cockpit will suffer from severe drooping (don't snicker, Crow).

The robot mode looks a little encumbered by all the extra accessories, but otherwise, Siege Megatron was always OK in robot mode. The lack of feet that tilt forward on WFC figures always bugged me though, especially with this mold. Ditto for the hands which just won't fold out all the way.

Passing on this one - unless it winds up on discount.

Yeah, it wasn’t until a little while after I posted that I saw the wings require partsforming. Oh well, still going to keep my preorder. Also worth noting is they did seem to include the original sword, meaning that there is the option to retain the mold’s tank mode so that’s nice, unless there’s more extensive retooling that isn’t seen. Either way, I’ll be displaying him in robot mode like everything else I own. I hope they do some similar “close enough” efforts for the remainder of this subline, even if they don’t require it that badly (who’s left that was rumored; Goldbug, Starscream and Jetfire right?)

Literally siege megs with add ons. Looks good. You can tell the cockpit is parts forming and is probably a shield in bot mode. Just wish they did something to hide the thighs even if it was a parts forming piece
