Thanks to Seibertronian Sentinel Primal, we have word of an anticipated Generations Selects figure that was posted on Twitter, by user @ARCTIC_STORM. It appears to be a slight remold of the War for Cybertron Megatron figure, with his classic green and purple G2 deco, along with a new G2 toy accurate head.

I freaking love it! Yeah, the body type doesn't match, but those colors just ooze 90s awesomeness! I'm all in!

I admit it isn't for everyone, some won't like the mold and some will definitely not like the colors, but I loved the whole 90's fascination with neon colors. Megs is practically wearing a tracksuit:

Where's this idea that it's a remold of Siege Megatron coming from? I saw this on TFormers too, but the figure is just a repainted Earthrise Megatron, even the head is the same.

I don’t think it’s a retool; head seems to look the same.

Have to admit though; despite my distaste for this mold in general and how much better the Siege one is, this in Generation 2 colors actually makes it look good and almost makes me want him to go with the Reveal the Shield Laser Optimus. :-?

Yeah, the head looks like it's just the ER mold.

This toy hurts my eyes to look at, and that's a good thing.

I like it. I wasn't going to bother with the Earthrise Megatron, but I might just go in for this version of him! Provided it's not an unobtainable exclusive.

Earthrise Megatron is himself a retool of Siege Megatron therefore this figure is a retool of Siege Megatron by default.

I like him, especially the tank mode, it's nearly perfect! :x Just needs some Toyhax labels to finish him off. Bot mode isn't as nice, I do like the added purple, but a way to mount his canon to his shoulder would make him better. Maybe it's just me, but I like this head a lot more on this figure than on the regular deco. In the end he does match nicely with the Legends purple and Selects tiger striped G2 Megatrons which is really what I want.

I did expect a new alternate head, though, makes me wonder if they have another figure planned for this mold. I'd be happy with something that hasn't been done at retail yet like a transforming Gutcruncher or or maybe a future Netflix set of Treadshot with Catgut (repainted from Lionizer) and maybe a Targetmaster we haven't see yet.

I'll pick this up, my only nitpick is the feet being gray instead of green.

Wasn't going to get the Earthrise normal deco since it was too redundant compared to Siege Megatron (espically since I got the normal version, the first selects version and the Netflix version since I liked the latter more then the first version and have nowhere to sell the first conveniently)

But this?

This is good and it will be my first version of the Earthrise Megatron, I'll use him as a different character like Megastorm rather then as a Megatron much like how I use the first Selects Megatron as an OC (just some guy who's a really big fan of Megatron and redesigned himself to match him, hence having the name on his chest)

I'm still waiting for a miner Megatron deco, because we know they have the tooling for that head. Though I would rather they use the Siege version as the base instead of ER.

This does look pretty good, but I think a little more effort with retooling some parts and paying more attention to color details would have made this that much better of a figure of G2 Megatron. They could have redone the fusion canon and/or the partsforming turret to better replicate the G2 shoulder cannon. They could have remolded the abdominal piece to look more like the G2 equivalent. They could have painted the pelvis dark green instead of purple and the hands and forearms gray. They could have included the small pistol accessory. Also, Rodimus Prime, while you wish the feet were green instead of gray, the gray is accurate to the original G2 toy (as seen in the pictures below), so in this case, Hasbro and Takara Tomy got the colors right.

Oh, meant to post this before, it's not directly transformers related and people that would need to know the most have been emailed about this anyway. But in case you missed it, Hasbro has extended current Pulse Premium memberships until further notice, I think the cutoff was originally the start of September. They've also given a sneak peak at their plans for the new Premium coming later this year.

Later this year, we’ll be updating the Hasbro Pulse Premium program to give you more of the things you’re looking for in a loyalty program.

Here’s a sneak peek:

  • Rewards just by having a Hasbro Pulse account
  • Tiered Program based on how you much spend, or you can buy your way to the next tier up front – your choice!
  • Exclusive access to sweepstakes, products and content
  • And... access to more epic perks throughout the year!

So what does that mean for your Hasbro Pulse Premium status now? Nothing just yet! Your current status remains until the new program goes into effect. We’ll be sharing more details on what this means for you over the next couple months, so keep an eye out!

Sounds like you can either pay to get premium or you can just earn your way into it by spending so much in the store. Maybe spend $100 and earn free shipping for a year or something along those lines. I'd be super happy if the exclusive access also included early access to pre-orders and convention exclusives. They've been talking about perks for a year and a half, but the only ones I remember are the free shipping and Black Friday coupons.

Well, that looks better than the regular ER version, but that wasn't particularly hard. It looks alright, I'm just not really a fan of this camo scheme. This figure does definitely explain part of why ER Megatron looks so off though: his head sculpt looks like it was made to go to this G2 version and then they put in the G1 color scheme and it didn't translate well.

I'm honestly hoping this is the reveal for this Tuesday, because I'm not interested in getting him and I'm going to be trapped in a car all day anyway (which would complicate things for me if the reveal is something I actually want, considering how fast Hot House sold out), and for those that do want it, I hope there's a way to mount the alt mode cannon on his shoulder somehow for that G2 accurate shoulder cannon.

That was what I expected when the disappointing ER Megs was revealed. And I'm sure not disappointed with this G2 Select Megs!

Also, yeah, RTS deluxe Lazer Optimus will look great with this G2 Megs.

looks like he is wearing undies...

Will likely still pick him up but would have preferred it to have used the titans return mold to have a crazy gurple jet. Would have nice to have some g2 decepticon logos on his upper arms.

That's an easy fix with repros.
I'm pretty sure Toyhax is scrambling to make a set for this guy.

This looks really good, just like ER Megs. I don't understand the complaints of his deco not being exactly like the G2 toy tho, it still looks good regardless and doesn't need to copy it exactly.

:MAXIMAL:

I should love this, but somehow the purple camo blotches look...odd. Like, they're too simplistic and rounded. Still, I do appreciate how extremely 90s he is.

It is more ER that Siege, but ER Megatron himself us just a slightly retooled Siege one. Not like Siege and ER Prime which are completely different. Basically ER and Select G2 are the 4th and 5th versions of the same toy with slight differences.

Although I had no interest in this until Albatross250 mentioned BWII Megastorm...I know people are excited for BW in Kingdom, bur I really enjoyed BWII (Neo not as much), even though its never officially been released in any form in NA, I've had them on VHS since they basically came out, and of course the fansub versions online now are great. I'm so happy we are getting God Neptune, would love it if any small BWII stuff came out, but doubtfull. I think however the deco on Megastorm was slightly different than G2 Megatron. I'm no expert with paints, otherwise, I might get G2 Selects and try it.
