    No Megatron toys. By that time in Japanese toy history, bad guy toys werent selling as good as good guy toys so pretty much after TF Victory, there werent that many Decepticons. Megatron did have a new character design, infact he had 3, Super Megatron, Ultra Megatron and Giant Star something.... cant remember. Anyways, I wish they made a Super Megatron even though with a lil imagining, Classic Megatron takes some cues from Super Megatron.

    I can't see Super Megatron's ANIMETASTIC design working well as a toy...but it was indeed awesome.

    Ahhhh... I've seen that Super Megatron design before but never knew where it was from. Aside from the head and colors, it has a distinctly Gundam vibe. After seeing the new classics prototypes, I think they could pull off a Super Megatron toy, or at least one reasonably close to that design.

    Super Megatron can't turn his head because of his retarded helmet.

    I'm still stoked about the similarity between Animated (Earth mode) Megatron and Super Megatron.

    Think Hasbro purposely made Animated Megatron as a homage to Battle Stars Super Megatron?

    I'm sure there are quite a few non-toy characters out there people would like to see toys of, but these obscure Japan-only characters are not them. Well, I mean, they wouldn't be very high on the priority list, I'm sure a lot would rather see someone like Xaaron or Impactor done first...

    You know, you could have linked to the TF Wiki pages from where you found the pictures, as a common courtesy, and to help people who may not have heard of these characters or the story before.

    Speak for yourself, I've been obsessed over creating a Super Megatron toy for years (Takara doin it would be the ideal solution), I have NO CLUE who Xaaron or Impactor are. I'm guessing they're part of the ridiculous (IMO) comic canon.

    For me the final days of the G1 Animated continuity (Which battlestars is, despite not getting animated itself), is way more interesting. Your point is probably well founded, though I doubt Hasbro knows for Xaaron or Impactor are either, and the TF:A design for Megatron implies they might know who Super Meggy is :)
