When it was first revealed, the toy-accurate version of Masterpiece Megatron 2.0 was not much more than a somewhat blurry scan from a hobby magazine. When site sponsors started putting up pre-orders for this toy, we knew it couldn't be long before official, high quality images surfaced. And now, thanks to Takara Tomy's own website, we have 10 high quality photos of this addition to the MP ranks. They show off a very toy accurate deco, including a new face and chest piece, along with the stock and silencer from the original release of MP-36. The helmet itself appears to be the same, as one picture shows MP-36's face and chestplate attached.

One notable feature shared with the previous version version of this mold, is the inclusion of sound and voice clips by Megatron's Japanese G1 voice actor. It does not seem to include any of the other accessories that the original (toon-accurate) version has.

So what do YOU think, fellow Seibertronians? Do these pictures whet your appetite for this figure? If they do, you can use the handy links below to pre-order this bad boy. Even if you don't plan on getting him, let us know what you think!

It looks great! All that silver and chrome really help gun mode, and that headsculp looks really cool. That red looks gorgeous too. If this comes with the giant sword and blaster rifle the Japanese G1 toy had, I'm sold. Too bad I can't afford it though :-(

Ugh, that is grotesque! Silver or grey, one or the other - both like that just looks awful!

Oh man! I think he looks great!

Also, I think he will come with some accessories. He has an alternate head and chest in this shot.

Whilst I'm happy with Despotron, if I get any version of this mold it'll be that one.

Hard pass, do not care for the toy accurate deco. The original MP-36 works just fine for me.

And are those stickers? I wouldn't pay $250 for stickers. :SICK:

They look a bit metallic. Did the previous release have metallic parts?

Toy accurate? But where is the crotch trigger?

Good eye! They do look shinier, yes.

Unless the lighting is off, the helmet part of that face is a different color than the one on MP-36. This is very cool. If this and the new Shockwave were the first versions to come out, I would have totally bought them. But, I can't drop the same money on these all over again.

They look different to me. It means Takara didnt copy anything. And it makessense taht they are similar since both the KO and Takara are pooling from the same source, being the G1 toy.

Though I don't care to own it, this is really awesome. Can't wait to see the Prime counterpart.

He does look awesome. But I already have MP-36 and Dynastron (who is all reprolabeled up) so I'm good.

I'm actually willing to bet that the KO toy face is the same and the 36+. It and the new chest are freakishly similar. These new pics are higher res and such, but are still too small to make out the finer details. On the 36+ face, there's a lot more black added which makes it difficult to confirm. Here's a better pics of the KO though.



And all the face/chest pics of 36+

The more I look at it, the more convinced I get they're the same. The placement of the curles on the chest are identical.

I could imagine someone from the KO company getting their hands on (leaked/stolen) preliminary design work for MP-36+ and getting them released in KO form ahead of the official Takara version.

My thoughts as well. Highly unlikely that TT is thieving KO pieces.
