    I had seen images of Super Megatron before, but i thought it was just fan art.
    But i learned that he was in the Japanese "Return of Convoy" series.

    Why can't we have a universe Megatron like this instead of the tank we got?

    Never heard of him.
    Looks like fan art to me.
    If real, it would be too obscure a character to fit into universe.

    I would prefer an Ultra Megatron figure! He really was a bad-ass robot!


    I haven't read the previous replies, but let me tell you that Super Megatron DO exist, well in the TV-Magazine story: Battlestars: Return of Convoy. Obviously, itis part of Japanese TF's continuity. Megatron wh was buried into the ice by the Headmasters (events of Japanese Tf's Headmasters) is resurrected into Super Megatron. After he was defeated he was rebuilt into Ultra Megatron, and finally he combines with the main villain Dark Nova.

    And let me tell you somenthing more, the designs for Super and Ultra Megatron were planned to have toys and they have a logic transformation. Sad to say it, they never got to stores.

    Because you touch yourself at night.

    Or maybe just because it would be about the most obscure Megatron toy they could make. But I think it's the touching yourself thing. HasTak are very much against masturbation.

    If that were true, Animated Waspinator wouldn't exist.

    I don't really get why the obscurity really comes into play.
    The design is very recognizable Megatron.
    I don't really see it as any different then releasing a completely new design.

    What's wrong with Obscurity? If that is such a problem introducing a figure from Japan, then TF:U should be renamed "Transformers: Local" or something worse.

    and it would be nice to have some figures that aren't repaints of old molds or half-assed redesigns.

    It can't be that bad when we have MPs, Alternity, Mickey F-ing Mouse, Kiss Players, and then there are the TFs we never saw in the U.S.

    and really, how old are you? Based upon your response, you aren't old enough to touch yourself.

    just sad that trolls are so young these days.

    I was just asking why can't something called "Universe" have a universal aspect.

    This.

    Frankly Super Megatrons alternate mode sucked, with major obvious feet syndrome that they didn't do anything with. Which is pathetic, since there wasn't a toy or anything and just folding them at the knee would've made for such a nicer design.

    To me, Animated Leader Megatron is an update of Super Megatron with less Gundam and more real world high quality engineering. There's a lot of similar design cues in both modes.
