Thanks to a notification from Takara Tomy Toys on Twitter, we have an update on the Takara Selects release of Super Megatron, which was last teased a year ago along with the initial teaser of Turtler. Takara Tomy posted on their Twitter page a shadow image of Super Megatron in both his robot mode and his jet mode, with the caption stating that a full reveal of the figure can be expected this week on April 2.

This Super Megatron appears to be an extensive retool of the Titans Return Galvatron mold, and he is based on the Super Megatron body from Battlestars, where he faced off against Star Convoy and others in more pointy G1 combat.

Check out the teaser and text below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!

As someone who never watched the Japanese Transformers, what would be a good start for me to watch so I can learn about King Poseidon and Super Megatron. I only know of Overlord because of IDW. And just reading entries on TFWiki ain't the same.

For King Posideon, you'll want to watch Super God Masterforce though it's a fair few episodes before King Posideon is introduced in full. It's also only Turtler who has any autonomy in the show (he never uses his robot mode either) all the rest of the Seacons are drones that are mass produced. None of them use robot modes either.

As for Super Megatron, there is nothing to watch as Battlestars was never animated, with its story told through text and a short Manga. So Tfwiki is your best bet

King Poseidon was in the Super-God Masterforce cartoon, but not so much as an actual character since his limb components were mass-produced mindless drones who never transformed into robot modes and his torso component, Turtler, also never transformed out of turtle mode and had very little personality of his own. Basically, King Poseidon was less of an actual character and more of a living weapon of mass destruction who would show up whenever the Decepticons of that show needed a powerful trump card against the Autobots. Though, Turtler/King Poseidon did have one personality trait: Evil jerk. He relished inflicting pain on his opponents and causing destruction in general.

Super Megatron, however, never appeared in any animated media. The series he originated from, Return of Convoy, was a print-only series whose storyline was told in magazine story pages that were very sparse on actual story content, instead mostly just summarizing specific events in a broad sense. The series did, however, get one chapter of manga, which told a more fleshed out story, but was just basically a simple tale of Super Megatron trying to steal some energy with Star Convoy and the Battlestars fighting him to stop him.

Hoping he's leader scale to with g1/selects star convoy but doubting it. Looking forward to the reveal even if I might skip this figure.

Yes! Yes! YES! I was so afraid this idea was going to be scrapped which is weird coming from someone who skipped Star Convoy but, whatever, I just really dig the Super Megatron design.

The TR Galvatron mold is a Voyager.

On the one hand, that's awesome that we're seeing Super Megatron, but on the other, I'm still waiting for Takara to officially reveal anything regarding Armada Prime since the last we heard was from someone at the booth, not Takara themselves

Now its just me but I think on some level we should appreciate the original Super Megatron concept art a bit more: as far as I can tell, it started the now very commonplace idea of Megatron-as-an-alien-jet/spaceship seen in Energon, Cybertron, 2007 movie, DOTM, TLK, Animated and Prime. Overall a very common choice of altmode for the 2000 to mid 2010.

Though, the important epilogue clip show episode at the end of the series is missing, which can instead be watched here.

When I was a kid, we had the Seacons gift set. We got Nautilator seperate and pretty much made him the gun.

Your rank of "God of Transformers" is very appropriate!

Post count only. Not my choosing. :oops:

Digging this new design. If he is, in fact a Voyager, then that'll be even better for me. He'll fit perfectly with my custom TR Voyager Star Convoy.

Seacons on Pulse- I'm glad for those who couldn't pre-order. I paid more for mine, because Hasbro gave no indication they'd be available again. I wish they'd be more transparent with such things, but such is life.

King Poseidon! (I just feel compelled to yell it every time) ;) as a character has little depth. Like any other combiner, he is just brute force in MF, although he ends up getting beat pretty bad by Ginrai, and even Metalhawk :-? towards the end. But he does have a pretty awesome voice, and one of the best combination sequences in all of Transformers IMHO.

As for Super Megatron, I am really *hoping* the rest of Zone, Return of Convoy, and Operation Combination will be included (I assume) in the 3rd TF Manga volume Viz is releasing later this year.

What Manga exists for those toylines will be included, just don't expect much from them in terms of content. They won't give you the full story.

Know what would be cool with Return of Convoy and Zone getting some love in SELECTS? Somehow, Big Bang getting a figure. Don't know who he'd be a retool of (POTP Rodimus?) but this obscure fella deserves to finally get a toy.
