Thanks to a tip from Powered Convoy in our own Energon Pub Forums we're getting some new looks at the upcoming Selects Super Megatron as pre-orders open on Takara Tomy Mall. As the saying goes, he's more than meets the eye! As several keen eyes in the forums had guessed this figure contains all the right parts for the figure to form both Super Megatron in bot and spacecraft modes as well as Ultra Megatron in bot and tank modes. But wait, that's not all! He also has a third face called Ultra Megatron Omega which features a face similar to that of Megatron from the movie Transformers: The Last Knight. What an ambitious figure!

Takara Tomy Mall is pricing him at ¥6,600 (about $60 USD) with release sometime in late September 2020. As with most Takara Tomy Selects releases his orders will only be limited from now until May 7 to Japanese customers. Hasbro Pulse will likely also make him available as they have other Takara Tomy Selects releases in the past, but for now TFSource and the Chosen Prime have opened their orders up for $64.99.

I'm hoping the gun part transformation/parts forming isn't too hindered in the jet and tank mode because I'd love to tweak a Super and Ultra version of both, especially since his powered up form use a tank which make less sense as an upgrade. Hopefully there is some way to make a tank with the big railgun/laser gun.

Honestly the only thing which would make him even better if if he had some sort of leg transformation to even further differentiate the forms. Even if it was just some panel flipping or an alternate pair of feet with a red tip. Still, as he is this is some insane and whacked mix of ideas and I love it! Now I want an oversized KO even more do display his Super and Ultra forms. As for the final form, my head keeps calling it Hyper Megatron.

If I got a single TF for the rest of 2020 and it was this guy I'd be more than happy.

Also, TF Source has preorder already.

Since this is a retool of the Titans Return Galvatron, does this still have a headmaster or did they get rid of that gimmick for this figure?

Considering TR Galvatron already had space to fold a head inside the torso and this guy has a transforming head, I think its safe to say he isn't.

While his third face does somewhat resemble TLK Megatron, I think it's more related to Dark Nova and the fact that he and Ultra Megatron fused together.

Its also (maybe) a loose reference to the unproduced Season 4 Animated Megatron aka 'Maraudeur Megatron' who was even more Super Megatron inspired and also had a face mask based off Beast Machines Megatron. This design take cues from it but swap the BM reference with bits from TLK.

Got mine too, the shipping box was dented but thankfully the individual boxes look ok.

Don't worry, the figures come in a plastic clamshell that's packed in a box, packed in a wrap, packed in a box which is then packed into the shipping box :HEADHURTS:


Busted open turtler and man what a figure, it feels bigger than it is. The packaging was interesting then I remembered it had the same number of layers as the Japanese releases. The shipping boxes are just different.

I definitely think the fact it looks like the TLK mask is intentional, as much as it might also be a Dark Nova reference. It's probably a double (triple, including Animated Marauder Megatron? Or possibly even quadruple, given Marauder Megatron's facemask itself was referencing Beast Wars Megatron?) homage.

The tusks aspect is TLK Megatron through and through.

Sure is, they even open when he shoots that beam. I'm not seeing Marauder Megatron at all in this figure, always thought that figure was a step further away from Super Megatron, not closer.

I'm having trouble figuring out Ultra Megatron's chest. It doesn't seem to be as simple as popping it open and spinning it around. There's a hinge at the top not found on the Super side and the intentionally shot the figure from below so you can't see what's going on up there. I'm thinking it might be the part his head is connected to and just out of view on the super side and has a twist in it similar to RID 2001 Ultra Magnus so the head returns upright.

What we can now see that the "spin" is about half way up his abs, the bottom half stays Black while above it is gray in super and black in ultra.

I think the mask is more likely TFK's Megatron and any resemblance to Dark Nova is a happy coincidence.

It's really neat that they managed to pack so much into this toy. It's way better than the Galvatron original.

Yeah, but it will cost many between 2-3 times that Galvatron original,

Yeah, I sincerely doubt there was any intention of making the Omega face resemble Dark Nova since, while he and Megatron did fuse into the Star Giant, their fusion was not mutually consensual. In other words, Megatron did not want to fuse with Dark Nova, the latter forced it upon him by basically swallowing him and wiring him into the Star Giant's head.

2.25 times as much.

I'm not seeing less reason to want this, despite the pricing.

They look cool, but not $35-a-deluxe-figure cool, I know some of us have bought Takara combiners for $150, but the painting and accessories are usually better along with the packaging, but this is something that could have been release at 18 a piece, except the voyager figure.

I still want to see a picture of Super/Ultra Megatron next to Star Convoy, just to get a sense of how out of scale they are with each other. Or, maybe Star Convoy is supposed to be bigger than either Super or Ultra Megatron?

Given that it doesn't look like any part was lengthened, maybe ask to see if anyone has both Star Convoy and TR/Legends Galvatron on hand for a size comparison. I think SC will tower over Super Ultra Megs but I suppose that was the best mold to use as a base. Can't think of any recent leader Class molds that would have been better.

True! I guess you can toss that on top of the reasons I won't get this. Although, saying that, I like what they've done here.
