Transformers: Masterpiece Megatron Gold Version
In lieu of the coin that most recent Masterpiece toys have received, the gold version of Megatron comes with a small die cast metal Reflector. It’s too small to actually be an accessory for Megatron, but this is such a crappy toy, that’s just par for the course.
Megatron comes with his Energon Sword (from Transformers: The Movie), his energy Mace (from More Than Meets The Eye), a laser gun (from Transformers: The Movie), and a small Kremzeek figure. Pretty much the same as the original version of MP Megatron, though I don’t have mine handy to compare.
This won’t be much of a review. This is one of the worst toys Takara or Hasbro has ever produced. His gun is so heavy that he can’t stand up straight. He does not include the stock and silencer (available as a Third Party set). He’s easily twice the size of an actual Walther P-38. There is talk that there will be a new MP Megatron mold coming up. I hope so. This one sucks. Hell, I’d rather see him as a tank than an insanely sized gun. My original version has a broken trigger that happened right out of the box. Part of that is the idiotic design that the trigger mechanism splits in half down the middle. Just idiotic. I wanted to make sure I never got the idea to transform mine again, so I did this with mine.
He’s just put on with Velcro, but he looks pretty darn cool if I do say so myself. Can’t imagine a way he would look better.
Thanks for reading!
