Thanks to our own Seibertronian Hellscream9999 and others for letting us know that Takara Tomy Generations Selects TT-GS09 Super Megatron is now available on Hasbro Pulse! There isn't a whole lot more to say that hasn't already been said before. He has two forms, Super and Ultra with both unique bot and vehicle modes as well as a third "Omega" face. Hasbro Pulse is asking a slightly more reasonable $59.99 but will only be taking orders until April 28 to meet Takara Tomy's cut off date of May 7. If you're a current Pulse Premium member you'll also get free shipping.

Transformers News: Selects Super Megatron Now Available on Hasbro Pulse

With all the things this figure has going for it I wonder how many people will be willing to buy more than one? There could be an argument to be made for buying two or even three for display purposes. Let us know in the Energon Pub forums if you plan on buying one or more.

If I do grab him, it'll only be one. The only time I've bought the same figure twice for display purposes was Punch/Counterpunch so I could have both robot modes back to back. And while I hate that there's a cut off date for pre-orders, at least it's better than the week they gave for the Seacons

I'd like to grab one someday. It's a cool figure, and within the crossover continuity of my collection it would give the character a form that stood a better chance against Cybertron Megs than he has as Galvatron.

Sorry Pulse, you're not getting me again with a several month delay. I've learned my lesson. It'll be TFSource this time.

There is just no way I could ever justify that selects pricing. I did it with Star Convoy, I regret it, and the damn thing broke so now I can't even sell it and get my money back.

Sucks as there are a lot of nice looking figures but oh well.

Well, too bad I have to skip this Megs because if I order him from Hasbro Pulse, it will cost me OVER 100$US. No freaking way I'm paying MP prices for a "normal" Transformers.

None of the other sites offering it for cheaper? You can also hope it turns up on mandrake for a decent price

Fingers crossed for this. However, because of the pandemic (thank you, China!) Mandarake only ship by EMS at the minimum. Ironically, it's still cheaper than buying anything from HP for this Canadian.

Stupid how much extra you have to pay just to get it sent north

Yup. It's 30$US minimum in shipping fees just for a pack of bubble gum. Plus they charge the Canadian taxes on top. That's why unless it's for an insane exclusive like the HASLAB Unicron, it's worthless for a Canadian to order anything from Pulse.

It's just plain ass expensive to ship to Canada. I've shipped very recently using both the USPS and FedEx and it hurt my butt both times (fortunately the latter was paid by my employer). The worst part is the damn customs form, so confusing.

My point? It's not the seller's fault.

So I went Hasbro Pulse for all my Seacons. Turtler and Gulf both arrived with the extra sleeve, but Kraken just arrived today without the sleeve. Lobclaw arrives tomorrow, so I'll see if he is also sleeveless. Kind of weird.

That is weird, my Kraken has the sleeve. In fact the sleeve made me realize just how random Hasbro's numbering system is for these. I wasn't really paying attention and thought they were shipping in order, but then I saw the big 02 on the box and thought they sent the wrong figure. When I saw it really was Kraken in the box I thought they put the wrong box on him, but no, I checked Gulf and he was 04. So really Hasbro just screwed up the number order since they're in the same release order as Takara Tomy.

TT-GS01 Star Convoy (release 1)
TT-GS02 Kraken (release 3)
TT-GS03 Turtler (release 2)
TT-GS04 Gulf (release 2)
TT-GS06 Lobclaw (release 3)
TT-GS07 Overbite (release 4)
TT-GS08 Tentakill (release 4)
TT-GS09 Super Megatron (release 5)

Now, did you notice there's no 05? That's been known for a while and there was a theory that the Super Megatron was meant to be 05 because he was teased at the same time as Turtler and Hasbro had already reserved that number. But now I can see that wasn't the case at all because I happened to catch this on the order receipt that came with Kraken.

Yep, Kraken was supposed to be 05 and it makes ALL the sense in the world. So how the heck did he end up out of order as 02? And was Super Megatron supposed to be 02 because that makes sense as well instead of thinking he'd be plopped in between Seacon releases? And if not Super Megatron then who did they think was going to be 02 originally? If they already printed the boxes and didn't want to waste them (character names aren't on the boxes, just their ID numbers) then it's a Deluxe box so it's a bit of a mystery.

Super Megatron being planned as 02 for TT makes sense, as a follow up to Star Convoy. But I'm pretty sure officially he will be the missing 05 when he does come out. It is odd in hindsight, but such is life.

Other than the tease of Armada Prime, I cant wait to see any future reveals from the TT portion of the selects line.

Only problem is... He's already had his number listed. He's TT-GS09. We're still missing 05.

You know, with the Dai Atlas gang, Star Convoy and now Super Megatron in Legends/SELECTS I wonder if we will see some reimagined Sky Garry and Grandus? Yeah I know Grandus is technically akin to a Titan but I could see him redone as a non base-former.

Funnily enough, it's just been pointed out in the Earthrise thread by Emerej that sky garry and grandus are actually smaller then Star Convoy in the pictures of Return of Convoy that we have and that Star Convoy hauled Grandus around in vehicle mode. So titan class may have been the wrong scale for him in the first place...

Tbh G1 toys are the last thing I turn to for scale. You know, TR Sentinel Prime into Sky Garry and a massive retool of Alpha Trion/Broadside into Sky Garry could work. Interestingly both figures might have the space (with retooling) to fit in a proper head and ditch the headmaster gimmick.

I could see Astrotrain/Sentinel working with the level of retooling that Takara unleashed on Galvatron :-?
