Description

This toy was used as " Gold Megatron," Megatron's super-iest duper-iest super mode in the Generations Selects Special Comic. When the Swarm consumed Optimus Prime and the Matrix of Leadership with him, the sacred artifact turned the ravenous Swarm into a force for creation. It immediately stopped devouring the Transformers on Earth and reconstituted Optimus in a new body which was recognizable as his Hero form, though never called out as such. A Rage in Heaven! Toys Generation 2 All the play features are intact including the 5mm ports allowing you to attach additional accessories.

In a fun bit of continuity, the camo patterns on the chest and legs actually roughly match those on the Voyager Class figure (but not the original one from 1992). I think the designers did a great job evoking the G2 era with this figure. In Hasbro Asia markets, Megatron would have come with a collector coin mounted in a card modeled after his distinctive chest design. The coin appears to have been canceled, presumably due to the fact that, like Shadow Panther, both the coin and the fold-out interior of the card it's mounted on depict the Maximal sigil rather than the Predacon one. [6] The existence of this coin was discovered when some of them found their way onto the secondary market.Accessories: Left and right fists, translucent right fist, gun barrel (opaque and translucent), saluting right hand (opaque and translucent), "Laser Vulcan", stand, die-cast Megatron Gun accessory (Asia reissue) Combat" Optimus Prime & Megatron television commercial 1, "Combat" Optimus Prime & Megatron television commercial 2 As a direct result of this, Hasbro later re-adopted the "Combat" prefix for redecos of newer Optimus Prime and Megatron toys that homage the intended decos for these unreleased figures, first for " Combat Hero Optimus Prime" from the 2012 Generations "Ultimate Gift Set", then later for Generations Selects War for Cybertron Trilogy " Combat Megatron". Whether this toy can be considered the Beast Wars Megatron character as seen in the primary fiction is a matter of debate. Released before the beginning of the animated series, which established Megatron as a separate entity from Generation 1 Megatron, the accompanying profiles and mini-comic imply the Beast Wars to be a direct progression of the Autobot/Decepticon war. The Alternity Megatron toy transforms into a 1:32 scale model of a Nissan 370Z and features die-cast metal parts and rubber tires. The figure wields two "tesseractal swords" which can be pegged at its hips, or stored under the car in vehicle mode. Each forearm features a flip-out "gravital blade."

Part of the first wave of Takara's Robotmasters toys, Beast Megatron is a simplified version of the 1996 Ultra Beast Wars Megatron. Much smaller, having a very similar transformation and a sculpt resembling the television series CGI model, but a paint scheme similar to the original toy. The tail/claw weapon was now removeable, revealing a robot fist which the tail/claw weapon could clamp around. He also came with a small laser rifle. The toy suffers from a number of unusual shortcomings, and proved a rather hefty shelfwarmer. Notably, due to a large number of design flaws, it is known to fall apart very easily, with the crotch coming undone with minimal force and the arms and legs often popping off over the course of basic transformation or even movement. In particular, the lower body is attached to the torso by very thin open clips, unsuited for holding up the weight of entirely die-cast legs, and the lower arms, which need to be pulled out, are extremely liable to disconnect from their balljoints rather than extending properly. Many of the joints are also extremely loose, owing to both poor construction and the excessive weight of the limbs. His cannon can plug into the short barrel of the tank turret or the rifle/Headmaster vehicle weapon. In an undocumented additional feature, the rifle can be inserted into the front end of the cannon. The cannon can be mounted on his forearm or held by any figure with 5mm hands. It also has a peg hole that an accessory such as his rifle can plug into, with extra square peg holes specifically to hold the rifle in place. His fusion cannon can plug into the short barrel of the tank turret or the rifle/Titan Master vehicle weapon. In an undocumented additional feature, the rifle can be inserted into the front end of the fusion cannon. The fusion cannon can be mounted on his forearm or held by any figure with 5mm hands. It also has a peg hole that an accessory such as his rifle can plug into, with extra square peg holes specifically to hold the rifle in place. The tank cannon on his turret, while held in very hard by a pair of ridges and a 5mm post, can also be removed; it can be pegged in by its 5mm post barrel onto a peghole in Megatron's shoulder to recreate G1 Megatron's classic shoulder barrel. So, his accessories are another weird point on this guy. On the normal side, he has his trademark fusion cannon, which is another almost-identical-but-actually-new sculpt that’s marginally less covered in tech detail, but more importantly, is now solid purple. He can arm-mount it as usual.

This release is the almost the same as the Hasbro Beast Machines Mega Class toy; one sprue of red plastic is darker, and the dragon's wing claws are reversed. The tank's turret can detach and become a "jet throne," which features flip-out wings, and the body of the tank transforms into a missile-launcher battle station. The battle station has two seats on either side behind the missile launchers (non-firing) and a stowing bay in the center for an additional figure. The Hasbro release of this figure was in gold, dark brown, and silver. The Hasbro release is known for being remarkably fragile — the deep brown plastic used for Megatron's waist and torso is prone to eventual breakage due to stress fractures. This has often been mistaken for a form of Gold Plastic Syndrome, but is really more of a design flaw coupled with weak plastics. The Takara version, which used a different plastic, does not have this problem. The Hasbro version had three different variants all based on the shade used for the transmetal parts, some were pink, some purple and others a darker blue purple. At BotCon 1996, a donated Hero Megatron redeco was one of the items in the charity auction, along with several other canceled Generation 2 toys. In 1992 Hasbro made an attempt to revive the then floundering Transformers toy line in the United States with a new line called Generation 2. While Transformers ruled toy store shelves in the 80s, by this time they had largely faded away (though they still sold rather well internationally). As part of this effort, a new Megatron was released. Instead of transforming into a gun, he now transformed into a tank. This helped start the long trend of Megatron transforming into a tank, something that continues to this day.

He features two 5mm-compatible hands, and his head is made out of a slightly soft, rubbery plastic. Like Starscream, he actually has elbows, and like all Authentics toys, Megatron features sculpted insignias on his chest and the sole of his right foot; the latter is visible in tank mode while the former is visible in robot mode. A toy version of Savage/Noble and a redeco of Deluxe Class Beast Changer, he transforms from a wolf-creature to a dragon creature, with no robot mode. The difference lies in that select red plastic parts were changed to a blue color. Ultra: Optimus & Megatron - probable release date - June 2001 (these are new additions to the list - I don't know if they will replace the 2 megas or if they are in addition to them, but these 2 along with the 4 deluxe will be the initial release"— BigBadToyStore, 2000/12/06(archive link) Attach the sword piece to the tank b connecting the tabs from the top of the robot shoulders to the slots on the sword accessory.Despite being the third Generations Selects figure to be announced, Combat Megatron came out ahead of Ricochet and Red Swoop.
