  • Wings convert to fusion cannon
  • Includes comic book
  • Figure comes with comic book

There was a time when those who wore the Decepticon badge did so with pride, and not fear. There was a time when the name of Megatron was honored by many across Cybertron. He was a scholar, a warrior and a hero, fighting for the freedom of the oppressed. But power inevitably corrupts, and none are so powerful as mighty Megatron. Long ago, he forgot he was a hero, and became nothing more than a tyrant. The battle between Autobot and Decepticon is never over, and this Megatron figure is the next generation of awesome Transformers action! Your Megatron figure can lead a Decepticon attack from above in stealth bomber mode. When he converts back to robot mode, the wings become his mighty fusion cannon! Keep converting him back and forth so he can handle whatever his Autobot enemies dish out! Transformers and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.

    This deluxe Megatron figure comes packed with a variant of IDW Comics’ “Spotlight: Megatron” for the same price as previous deluxes that had no comics, nice deal. This cover art is the Retailer Incentive character art for that original issue but on a different background and closer-up. That character art *IS* this figure, period, the end. The artist, Clayton Crain, obviously had this toy in his hand or something, he even avoided the purple “M” detail on the helmet this specific comic design enjoys in EVERY other instance except this cover and this figure.

    This figure is Megatron from the IDW comic series, around the middle of the Transformers Ongoing series, the issue is from May of 2013, not long before this figure came out in July.

    Vehicle mode, starting with transformation is like 90% “what’s going on?” and then the last 10% when you attach the accessories as the outer wings becomes UTTERLY BRILLIANT. It’s just “there’s a wedge, there’s a wedge, now it’s a solid wedge, and it’s beautiful B2-inspired bomber”, but that means if you lose those wings, the toy is nothing, the vehicle might pass for a bricky submarine or a streamlined cyber-rat, but it’ll never be in any way threatening without them, so don’t lose ‘em. The vehicle is very dark gray with purpley-dark silver accents and red windows, the underside adds translucent and opaque purple bits and the plastic equivalent of purpley-dark silver. There’s a fold-down front landing wheel (non-rotating) to correspond to wheel-nubs sculpted to the underside midway points. The lower half of the plane is a bit kibbly and you can see Megatron’s face staring down at the ground, but isn’t too much of a “thick Transformer plane” offender.

    Transformation to robot mode, the instructions feel like this thing is going to take forever but there’s an elegance to it once you’ve done it, there are ideas that I can’t remember ever seeing executed this way before, it’s most impressive. I can’t stop transforming it, even if I didn’t like anything else about this figure I wouldn’t be able to help but transform him over and over.

    Robot mode is what you see on the cover, it’s dark and it’s menacing and it’s got a wide chest and long legs, it’s imposing… right up until you put it next to the recent Fall of Cybertron Starscream figure where they stand about the same size and Megatron’s head is smaller. Still, it’s an impressive Megatron look, the vents on the shoulders and forearms makes a strong statement, the cockpit broken up by the Decepticon logo is powerful, the look is very commanding. It looks like it’d be fragile, but it’s actually quite solid except for the outer boots repositioning because they’re hinged to fold out for some reason, and that’s a pretty minor issue. Tons of sculpted details, very little is left plain. The forearms are somewhat bulky though. Deco is everything good from the upper side with the purple and purpley-silver added to the mix to bring it to life, forgoing the neon purple panel line accents seen in the comic – I prefer it that way, the neon purple lines don’t say “Megatron” to me. The eyes are pitch black most of the time, they used translucent purple plastic but until you get a flashlight blaring into it, it’s pretty lifeless.

    The weapon deserves its own conversation, the wing tip halves plug together (not all that efficiently) to make a twin-pronged fork thing that doesn’t look like much… at first. It has a 5mm peg so it fits in either hand, but is meant for the pegholes on either forearm. When you pull the “sights” at the top backwards though, the forks slide forward together and expose translucent purple plastic with tech detailing, and now you’ve got something. Is it a fusion cannon? Package says yes, so who am I to argue? Does it look like the twin-bladed forearm weapon in the comic? Sure. Whatever, it’s cool and it transforms a little. That said, this thing is likely a point of failure down the road – moving parts, translucent plastic, sandwiches together from 2 halves, what do you think is likely to happen? The first time I tried it, I pulled one of the forks clean off its runner and out of its lever, didn’t realize the whole thing is transformed from the back instead of the front, but it held up.

    Overall, Megatron here gets a high grade from me, I really like this figure, it’s got tons of personality and clever ideas in the transformation. The small stature and kreoforming (we transformers fans used to call it “legoforming” when you add parts on to complete a vehicle, but Hasbro solved that by making their own brick-building line) are issues, but this figure gets a big smile and recommend from me overall.

    This is a gorgeous Transformer and is worth every penny. If you like transformers: buy this., If you like Megatron: buy 2 of these. If you want to know more about the passionate love Megatron has for Starscream: read the included comic.
