Transformers GT Megatron
A new series from TakaraTomy, Transformers GT includes accurate (I assume) race cars from the Japanese Super GT Racing circuit. All the toys in this line are heavily remolded versions of the Transformers Alternity Optimus Prime.
Each toy includes a female action figure, which is unfortunately, not to scale with the cars. They include a number of extra hands. I’m not sure if they are supposed to represent any real person or not.
The original toy did not (I believe) have any weapons. Megatron’s weapon is made to look like a fire extinguisher. It’s pretty cool, but they really should have given him a gun that looked more like Megatron’s arm cannon.
He’s beautifully painted with sponsor logos, most of which I do not recognize. I’m not a big fan of the head sculpt. It just doesn’t look like Megatron. This is a pretty cool line so far, but it’s getting boring very quickly that there is only one mold. I suppose that is the nature of the line, but I hope it’s not going to go on too much longer.
Thanks for reading!
