Even though I have no context for the design it looks like a really fun Megatron toy. I wish I had experience with TR Galvatron to get a better idea of if I actually want this

Man they just keep going with this April Fools prank, don't they? :roll:

It's still kinda weird to me that this is an actual thing. They announced it on April 1st, so of course I didn't think it was real. Why would they use a design that, for the longest time, I thought was just concept art? I mean, where does this design even come from? What series? I love it, and I want it, but I don't know where it came from other than from ONE picture that I saw years ago. Why does it have TLK Megatron's battle mask? Again, I love it, but why?

And how many Sir Robert Bordens will it cost me?

They announced it on April 5, 2019 Japan Time (which was April 4, 2019 U.S. Time).

It's not concept art as back in 1991-2, it was never going to be a toy. This was how super Megatron looked in the Return of Convoy art that was produced for the story pages.

As for the battle mask, I'd say that was a fun homage to the last bay movie.
I'm curious as to why you think it was an April Fools given that it was revealed after then. Plus they've been teasing it since last year, when we learned of Star Convoy... If memory serves.

Oh, didn't even know that. My only knowledge of it was this article. https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... led/44683/

My fault for being too lazy to read a single paragraph at the time. I dun played myself. I mean, almost a week afterwords I was like "oh this is real" but that's still an embarrassingly long time.

You're not alone. I too, never knew that Megs was a thing.
I feel I should preorder it. Even then, maybe it will be at a better price at Mandarake. Since when it will come out, Corona Chan should have calmed her tits by then, no?

So, I dont really care about "Super Megatron", I just want this as "Megatron". He reminds me of a Generations take onbthe Movie/Prime Megatrons with a wickedly destructive tank and jet mode suitable the Emperor of Destruction.

You could argue that this is a generations take on Animated Megatron, just without the helicopter alt ;)

Wait.
It IS Animated Megs, but improved and more dangerous than ever!

This make me want him even more.

Yeas. It looks very cool, but the new photos just reinforce how over priced it is.

I'd argue Animated and DOTM Megatron were very much in the vein of this guy, even more so now that the figure has triple changer feature. Yeah he's a bit much but honestly I've splurged on far worse before and, beside, I've cut down on Earthrise and am skipping most of that line now so it doesn't bother me as much.

OK OK... I was critical in the podcast, and he's still not my ideal, but dammit, this is really growing on me.

The only thing "overpriced" about him is the "exclusivity tax". But with all the added parts compared to the TR Galvatron original, the added parts make him at least jump into the Leader bracket.

Too bad about the horrible exchange rate for me though...

The forearms and shoulders are pretty obvious too IMO

I'm glad so many of you are happy about this, because it looks like the ugliest $60 Transformer I've ever seen. Hopefully we don't see buyer's remorse on the same scale as with Big Powered.

I guess eventually everything on TFWiki with a G1 tag will get a Generations or Takara release?

People really hated the Big Powered set due to QC and yet...this is not an issue mine has. At all. Guess I got lucky.

At this point can you honestly say you'd be suprised?

That was the big let down with mine. Dai Atlas just doesn't like to stay together. his mid-torso connection is crap

Mine is wobbly, sure, but it's mostly fine. Guess I got lucky?
