Thanks to a Tweet from Takaratomy Mall, we have a pair of new images to show you this evening of the upcoming Transformers Selects Super Megatron.

These new images show the Super Megatron figure compared to his arch rival: Star Convoy. Star Convoy was released last year as the first Takara Selects figure, and Super Megatron himself was teased long before that, meaning that fans have had over a year of anticipation for this showdown in toy form at last.

The images show us that, as anticipated, Super Megatron is noticeably shorter than Star Convoy, but he definitely helps make up for that with some significant bulk and lots of pointy ends, meaning that he sort of still stands up to Star Convoy.

Super Megatron is set to be released this September, and will retail for around $60 US. Check out the images below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

For those of us who missed or skipped Stay Convoy, would you say Siege Galaxy Upgrade Prime is a good counterpart for Super Megatron?

Height-wise, the Titans Return mass retail Voyager class Optimus works and is even colored like Star Convoy (save for his lack of a silver forehead crest).

Ayup, this guys is totally going to be opposed to my TR Voyager Optimus. Also, man, he's got some serious MASS for a Voyager.

Next image, Super Megatron, Star Convoy, with their Siege counterparts. From the beginning to their final G1 evolution!

Thanks to the expanded G1 lore, Optimus's final G1 evolution is the ordinary-looking body he had at the end of the Legends manga Epilogue, when he and Megatron finally brokered peace together. ;)

Megatron, however, does get his final form with this toy, that being Ultra Megatron Omega.

If it's any consolation, the Takara Selects Manga takes place between the end of American G1 and Japanese Headmasters and has Optimus and Megatron become Star Convoy and Super/Ultra Megatron early so in terms of the Selects releases, these are their final (so far) G1 forms since this is a new JG1 continuity that splinters off at The Return of Optimus Prime.

It retains -- in theory -- prior differences like 2006 vs 2010 for Season 3 but is basically a reboot of Japanese continuity without all the detours.

Now... If you wanted to have a different Optimus who is contemporary to Ultra Megatron, Nucleon Quest Optimus immediately follows so you could use PM Optimus Prime's reprolabels on Primitive Optimus Prime.

It's the same JG1 continuity. It's just that Optimus and Megatron are their 2011 selves being given temporary new forms based on those that they will acquire decades later into their future after this current adventure of theirs is over and they return to their home time of 2011. And said adventure has currently displaced the two into the far distant past into a universe that existed before the Big Bang created the JG1 cartoon universe.

Everyone's talking about deep JG1 lore, meanwhile I'm over here just excited to see that Megatron's looking even better than I thought he'd look. :lol: I just hope that his ankles are tight enough to support his weight cause I was messing with my Galvatron figure the other day and the ankles were giving me some trouble

Seeing Megs next to star, the scale is a little disappointing. I like it when Megatron is bigger and maybe beefier then Prime, which has made it a shame that we haven't gotten a leader class Megatron in such a long time.

Indeed.
Megatron deserve to be able to have a "super mode".
Leader Megs could even be a heavy retool of Leader Shockwave or follow the same kind of concept.

You can blame the cartoon scale for that. Last time we got a megs that was bigger then Prime in that fashion was Animated. Other than that they've been mostly the same size.

Well there was also Combiner Wars, but many people didn't like Voyager OP for being a torso and Leader Megs for being too skinny.

Yeah I should have specified that I meant fiction :lol: though CW megs and op is interesting as megs is bigger then stand alone op but op combined is bigger.

Is it possible that Super/Ultra Meg's forehead swaps independently of his face? Because if both modes have separate faces, it's kind of disappointing that both faces are identical other than the color of his forehead thingy.

Yes, since we have seen his red forehead with the regular face and the battle mask. Logically he can do the battle mask with the regular forehead.

To be fair, it is accurate to the height difference between the two in the original Battlestars manga, as pointed out by Takara on twitter IIRC. Their stated heights are 45m for Star Convoy and 35m for Super Megatron, and although they're not always depicted as that tall compared to like people and buildings and whatnot, that height difference ratio between then seems to stay the same.
