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!

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.

    I would think that would be a setting in your own notifications. I don’t see anything that gives me access to change your cotifications. If you can’t find it there you will have to contact WordPress support. Sorry.

    After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from
    now on each time a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

    What version of IE are you using?

  4. Hi, I believe your site could be having web browser compatibility issues.

    When I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that,
    fantastic site!
