It is time for another entry into the galleries of Seibertron. The big bad himself Megatron comes to you in high quality pictoral form. This is the G1 deco of Combiner Wars Leader Class Megatron inspired by his G1 animation model. Megatron comes with stickers to make him either a Decepticon or Autobot (see semi recent issues of the IDW comics for that story) as well as G1 details. You can also check out the retooled Armada version as well. As always, click the images below to see the full galleries.

Nice. Likin the Lost Light love you threw in there. Can't wait to get that with an updated Ultra Magnus and Cyclonus.

The insignia thing is weird and annoying, not because I'm against Autobot Megatron, but because they included a sticker for :CON: even though they painted that on, and they painted that right below where I'd prefer the insignia and on top of silver paint so I can't just wipe it off.

Where the tampo'd :CON: symbol is is where G1 Megatron's chest :CON: symbol has always been. They just shaped the torso on this toy awkwardly to warp the proportions of the G1 chest design into making the main part of the chest smaller and the typically insignificant part directly above it much bigger.

It really is a weird design choice considering that even the comics don't have the chest drawn like that.

Ah, I see it now. It IS pretty bizarre, especially compared to the screencap BERSEKAEL posted.

It's to accommodate his head when transformed in tank mode.

I hadn't planned on getting G1 Megs, but thanks to these galleries, I might have to! The only thing that really bothers me about his design is those FEET. It's like the designers gave up by the time they reached them and said "Eh.....two big chunks of plastic are foot-like enough. Let's go get a beer!"

Yep, looks great in both modes. Well done, G1 Megs. You finally have a great looking toy and it only took you three decades or so.

He does look awesome, but he's just too big for me. I would've preferred a voyager size. Too bad. :(

Don't let those feet deter you. They're one of the cooler parts of his transformation, actually. Just think of how much better even those feet are compared to OG Megs.

My plans for this figure, basically.


Wish the tank barrel didn't stick out of his fusion-cannon like that though.

Something I think would have been cool to see in this gallery, but fully understand why it wasn't seen, is a set of comparison pics between this toy and the last G1-esque Leader Megatron toy: The Animated Leader Megatron. Until this toy came along, that one was considered arguably the best G1-looking Leader class Megatron toy, so seeing that one and this one together would have bee a cool "passing of the torch" moment between the two. :D

I love this shot. Though it's just meant to be between the first Generations Autobot Leader class toy and the first Generations Decepticon Leader class toy, it happens to align with the old European pack-in comic from Milton Bradley that had Jetfire as the Autobot leader instead of Prime:

All hail Megatron's manly chest hairs!

Wow that one looks really good. I always wished the original G1 Megatron was a tank in Alt mode. The gun mode did give it a rich lore with him able to be handled by other deceptions. I just always found him lacking in gun and robot modes for the original G1 toy so I actually traded him away when I was a kid. The next generation of fans will definitely love this.

So elated I found one today, as stores have only been getting a case of one each, and armada and a G1, and for once my timing was perfect enough to get it before it was gone. Posted the pic to the seibertron Facebook page.

Great figure even if his poseability is limited, but he s a good compliment to masterpiece prime until I can set aside a few bucks for Apolyon.
