It's getting hard to resist buying Megadriveatron. His botmode looks to be bigger than I thought.

I want both of these, but the asking price is really, really steep. Not sure I can justify it. :sad:

It might be the small Japanese hands, but despite being a little over seven inches tall (about Voyager size) he looks really big here. I was all ready for him to come out this month but he's been pushed back to November now. :(

i can just imagine the people who work at Sega get fooled by this machine. 8-} i think i would buy it with play-optimus-station-prime and reenact the console wars back in the 90s. or just have them transformed into console mode and put it near my TV.

I want that Megatron, fusion cannon is a bit hokey but can't fault the fact that he turns into a great rendition of my favourite childhood console next to the Saturn.

I'm bummed he's not the size of the actual Megadrive. But the robotmode turns out to be about voyagerish, so he's OK in my book. Depending on the price I'll decide wether or not he is going to be on my shelves.

I don't think it does.
It's just something fun for gamers to have.
I fakes unknowing people out. That Real Gear game controller, I can't tell you how many people ask what system it for. Pretty good practical joke when someone reaches for a controller and is like "Um.. how does this thing turn on?"

:lol:

Don't see many call G-1 Reflector pointless as it isn't a working camera and can't take pictures.

Nobody called 1984 Soundwave and 1985 Blaster pointless because they were not working radios.

Didn't see any complaints that the cassettes-bots were pointless as they couldn't record anything.

Never saw any buyers complain they bought 1984 Megatron and called it pointless. As it didn't shoot real bullets and couldn't use it as a real firearm.

Nobody called the 2007 movie, Real Gear toys pointless, because they were expecting $6 dollar toys to have electronics in them and be fully functional real world things.

And yet, in 2014, we can put the entire console onto a chip the size of a quarter, and (most likely) have all the proper connectors wired within Megatron, yet they didn't do it.

I would have picked it up in a heartbeat if it would have done that, like the rest of the device label line, which is what I had hoped this would be a part of.

TakaraTomy didn't do with this thing that thing they did with those other things so that means this thing is bad even though that thing wasn't done with assloads of other things and said thing they didn't do this time is really nothing more than a gimmick.

Nerds sure can be a whiny bunch, huh?

TAKARATOMY PLEASE DO THING TO THING

Here's my rant:

I seriously don't understand you people. "What's the point if it doesn't play real games?" Hold on, let me drive my Masterpiece Sideswipe car to work. Oh that's right it's a transforming toy model of a car. Exactly what this is.

I don't see how that could be a make or break decision to buy it at all if you had any real interest; would you actually hook this up to your TV? Do you have Mega Drive carts laying around? It's just a thing you say you want but you'd never use it. If you want to play Mega Drive/Genesis games there's plenty of ways to go about that without requiring it be included in this voyager sized figure.

Sega has released TONS of Mega Drive/Genesis game packs on many consoles and PC. Go buy those and be happy for the 10 minutes you'd actually play them.

Somehow I feel like there would be less criticism of video game console Transformers if this had come out about 10 years ago.

Even then, people would still complain about them not being able to play the game discs.

My point was that with these being novelties, they might have been more accepted about ten years ago when novelty Transformers weren't so commonplace as to be written off as meaningless.

The figures you speak of were all marketed as "make believe" and sold at Hasbro toystore prices. This thing is being marketed to adults and sold at Takara collectors prices.
So it would make sense for it to actually work just like device label Blaster actually works.

You saying adults can't have their own "make believe" stuff too?
