    Yeah, I just picked up a tech deck dude at walmart. now I don't typically get into the whole fingerboard thing, but this one caught my eye. He's #49 in the set, his name is Mort.

    Name: Mort
    Occupation: Cable T.V. Installer
    Hobby: Becoming Ruler of the Universe
    Catch Phrase: "Such Heroic Nonsense!"

    That's right, this little skater is none other than G1 Megatron. How can I back up this claim without pics? simple, I'll point you right to the site.

    Tech Deck Bios


    Listed at number 49 is Mort, who is a blatant reference to Megatron. Listed next to him at #50 is what appears to be an Optimus Prime (Nemesis Prime?) called Minga.

    Not sure if this had been noticed before or not, but I figure it should at least get some kind of mention in the TF Wiki.

    TrU around here had the Megs and Prime ones in a tube set with Robocop and Terminator. I always saw it in the store and thought about picking it up.
    Then they were gone, and I missed my chance.

    I ended up finding Mort at the local WM last week in the solo pack. He doesn't have the Laserbeak buddy like the original release, but isn't bad either. I hope they re-release the Prime one as a solo, too.

    Hmm I haven't thought to look for them in a while but I always meant to. Doesn't the Megatron come with Ratbat or something?
