Thanks to an alert from Seibertronian Kurthy and via the Transformers: Rarity of Convoy Facebook page, we have new images of a new Lucky Draw figure, now based on the MP-36 Megatron mold! The figure is done up in the standard shiny gold finish, strongly resembling his appearance in the G1 Episode "The Golden Lagoon." What this means for the noted paint chipping issues has yet to be seen. The figure is part of a still unannounced Takara Tomy Campaign, though we should be getting word on what that campaign will be soon. Check out this awesome looking (if slightly mistransformed) figure below, and let us know what you think of it in the comments section below!

They will need to make a Masterpiece Beachcomer now with an optional golden hand.

In the story, this makes him invincible. As a toy, it means he's going to crumble as soon as you touch him :lol:

Guys, that's gold-colored chrome covering the plastic. Not the dreaded Gold Plastic at all. Not without it's problems though, because of the extra layer and material, chipping and overly tight joints will be this guy's biggest worry. But it's not like you will transform him and pose as a James Bond villain, right? ;)

And people were terrified over the prospect of someone transforming Lucky Draw MP-1! :P

I'd be scared to death to transform him for fear of damaging the gold paint. Still, it looks pretty boss....

I mean, Lucky Draw figures aren't exactly a dime a dozen.

I knew it! I said it a few weeks ago and a few pages back. I said they would have a gold one, but I didn't expect golden chrome!? Whoa! Bet a black one is coming. Boy if they do that and a black mirror finish, with a silver Decepticon logo, I'll freaking but one at any cost!! Lol

Anyone think we'll see a Megatron head sculpt via 3rd party that has that dark grey helmet from the UK comics? Would love to see what that would look like

If it is Lucky Draw, well...

- lotery open to Japanese residents only
- 5 to 10, period.

Then again, it could be a KO (KO's with gold chrome do exist!) or even weirder, it could be someone's custom. Anybody remember the guy who actually requested his Encore Fortress Maximus to be gold-plated? :shock:

I'd love to see a more Marvel-accurate Megatron, but I'm not betting on it :(

David Willis customized his Megatron to be Marvel based.

Thanks to Facebook user Sam Robertz we have in hand images of Takara Tomy MP-36 Megatron. You can see him in all his shiny glory in the images below. If you are curious why this Megatron figure is gold, you may want to look up the G1 Episode entitled "The Golden Lagoon".

If you are a fan of Master Piece figures, we have what might be the first image of MPM Barricade.

I'm a bit disappointed with the gray pieces.

When are they going to transform him into the golden gun? For me, that's one figure I would have sent off for grading and never opened.

I'd be worried about this Megatron being brittle based on the gold plastic.

No, he won't be brittle, as it's gold paint, not gold plastic. The paint might be brittle, though.

Also, is it really an homage to "The Golden Lagoon", or is it just part of the Japanese obsession with chromed and clear figures?
