    Chunks of that (head, upper arms, possibly lower arms) are clearly from G2 Combat Hero Megatron. Looks more like a kitbash to me.

    It looks like it could either be a kitbash, or a knockoff.

    Looks like a knockoff to me, personally.

    I remember seeing that online years ago. In the time between Generation 2 and Beast Wars Hasbro had a internal proposal that would have made Autobots and Depecticons ordinary house hold items/ hi tech toys (basically an entire line of Real Gear figures larger than scouts). This Megatron is a kit bash, never intended for release. I for one am happy they went with Beast Wars

    Actually it is the regular G2 green tank, not the Combat hero. There are three of these that I know of. Two in robot mode and one in camera mode. This was a mock up that they used existing parts to create.

    It's a "kitbash" but it is from Hasbro. They use parts from existing items to mock it up. So don't just dismiss it as a kitbash someone made.
