Previous Mold Use: Siege Voyager Megatron
Rather than giving us a non battle damaged version of Siege Megatron, Hasbro decided to give us this. The box calls it Classic Animation. I’ve also heard it referred to as “cell shaded”. It’s not a bad looking toy, but I would have preferred a more standard G1 animation paint job without the battle damage of the original toy. I do prefer the lighter colors on this mold. It would have made a great G1 animation Megatron without the shading affects.
Overall: I’ll give Hasbro credit for trying something new that’s not a bad idea, but this just isn’t working for me. I had hell of a time finding the 35th Anniversary toys. I finally ordered them for pickup from a Walmart who had them in stock only to be told they wouldn’t be ready for a week. I cancelled the order and went to that Walmart to find them on the shelf. The incompetence of Walmart is staggering. Also, as an FYI, the Walmart I got them at had put the 35th Anniversary toys in the seasonal department for some reason.
Thanks for reading!
