I wonder how much that would go for on the secondary market. It's nice but it's out of my reach.

Along with the news of the Gold Mega Drive Megatron lucky draw figure, Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. and Sega have tweeted photos of the mold in a new deco. This redeco adds the Sega Genesis logo to the console mode and changes the red paint operations for purple. This will be a run limited to 1000 pieces available for purchase.

All the pictures regarding this new deco have been mirrored below.

That looks amazing, wonder if they would do a retool into the Mega Drive II and Galvatron ;) (or a Saturn, Dreamcast I'm easy takara)

Autobot Tap Out there isn't an N64 one. Plus they haven't done the same generation of consoles as the playstation went against the Saturn, not the mega drive.

Or they could do a Sega CD/32X add-on as Tidal Wave.

Whoo! first news credit! It sometimes pays to be an insomniac on the web! seriously though, that gold segatron is SHINY. All those nice flat surfaces make this one of the better looking lucky draws I think

It's a shame that chrome would probably chip like crazy, because it looks divine.

you probably don't want to be in front of it either, it will blind you with shinyness

Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1989!

Cool that it looks like they've even remolded his little cart into a Genesis shaped cart. They could have really cheaped out and not done that. Good for them.

Really wish both Megatron and Optimus would come out in the U.S. as a 2-pack of some sort. SEGA would probably be for it. I don't know about Sony though due to SEGA signing a contract with Nintendo to have 3 exclusive Sonic games.

I doubt Sony would care about that deal mind, any sort of thing like this would represent a good advertisement. Especially with the psone being optimus prime (the most iconic character from all of transformers)

Third-party licenses don't come that easily in the U.S.

Oh I know, I was just refuting the claim it wasn't coming due to a game deal.
