Courtesy of site sponsor Kapow! Toys and fellow Seibertron.com user Ravage XK who brought it to our attention, we have an update on the Takara Tomy Reissue of MP-05 Megatron. It appears the figure will feature a gold deco, rather than metal or silver, as shown in the mirrored image below - does this affect the likeliness of your purchase? Is it an incentive? Discuss it in the Energon Pub!

All of a sudden I have an urge to play Goldeneye. For those who complained about delicate MPs, how 'bout them gold plastic/chrome? :lol:

I didnt see this coming at all. And I can't wrap my head around its purpose or meaning. Also, this might lessen the hope of this being a Last Shot type thing and thus mean that we are not getting a Megatron 2.0 anytime soon.

Brilliant! Literally, really...

Gold give away MP1 is stunning, Im always on the lookout for one to show on ebay and prepared to pay whatever necessary to make it mine...

Gold megatron is going to look great next to king grimlock, the bling impact of that figure made it kinda lonely on my display shelf, but not anymore... The LED light on the grimlock shelf is usually off so that it wont look as shiny in comparison to the rest of the MPs... Gold megatron is gonna take it to a whole new level!

Please make a silver starscream and a gold bumblebee!

Is it weird that the first thing to pop in my head was "Give him a new head and call him Browning" as opposed to "Golden Lagoon"?

That is the first thing I thought of as well. Just watched that episode a couple days ago. I will for sure have a gold hand on Beachcomber if I ever get one.

I'm thinking this is more in tune with how Megatron had a goldish look in many of the early Marvel comics

It's not exactly "milking" a mold when it's only the second release of it. "Milking" is when a mold has many repeated releases, not just one more after the first.

This is all very well and good (Repaints are always fun, especially totally out of left field ones like this) but can we get an updated MP Megatron mold, please? This guy hasn't held up anywhere near as well as, say, MP-01 or MP-03, and the Decepticons are seriously under-represented at the moment.

Not the second.
There is the original release, with a second release right after that because the first completely sold out and the demand was super high. Then there was another more recent re-release, and well this one here. I may have missed one.

But no, still not milking it, milking it would be if we had like three different repaints and a couple of reissues within the first 5 years after the original release.

Gotta say, what little we can see in that pick of him, he looks really cool.

Like the classics Seeker mold or the more recent Generations BUmblebee/goldfire mold ?

There are a lot of classics prime figures. Um there's is cloud prime who used this mold , SG PRIME , G1 magnus, too many variants of this mold just for G1 Optimus prime; unlike IDW 'Bee who has been used as night beat, go shooter , carzap, and one or two others I may be wrong so correct me on this .

Didn't the original Megatron toy from '84 have a slight 'smokey tint' to him, which is probably the reason for it's box art colours? I don't think this re-deco will be GOLD gold, like a lucky draw or a 'golden lagoon Megatron' type thing, but just indicative of that look the original had. Plus, this guy has the blue bits instead of red, like Takara's original G1 deco. (I think somebody here mused that may happen)

He looks nice, but I can barely bare my original, If I'm honest :shock: Which is a shame...
