Transformers Asia have updated their site with a page for the Asia exclusive Movie series Dark Energon Megatron. A recolor of the Revenge of the Fallen Leader Megatron, Dark Energon Megatron spots a truly menacing black and purple deco, and is due for a December release in Asia (but not Japan).

whats up with this thing? Haven't seen any preorders yet.
Cheem The Rup
Just read on fb that will be out in december, the price around $125..
Timesynch
Hmmm... could use a Leader Megatron of some sort in my Bayverse display, and I dig the colors/deco. Shame the mold is a bit wonky. Have to decide between this or a custom Megs of the same mold, since the pricing is roughly the same.
Daimao
$125? ouch. I got the GDO Ironhide and Screamer for $160 shipped.
Obsidian X
Damn that is expensive... I could use a movie-styled leader class Megs and I like the colors but that price is steep and that mold is pretty meh.
Thenames9
Around the same price as ROTF Shadow Command Megatron or whatever it's called. Still, big pass for me.

$140 for a recolor of a shitty mold? Blech

you mean awesome recolor of the best leader movie megatron mold, right? different strokes and all that... sorry I'm just sick of the negativity some people need to throw out in every discussion about the movies/movie toys.

There's a couple more pics where this came from:

I'm not a fan of that mold, but that recolor ALMOST saves it. I just wish it had two proper arms....
Daimao
this seems more along the lines of the Henkei Magnus and G1 colored E. Bruticus, not GDO
Cadbane
Wow 140? I know this Megatron is quite rare in Aisa but nobody wants to pay that price.
WarConvoy
Sorry, for that price NO
Houndvoice
Kool colours, but the mold is still very undesireable.
Notilator
Why would Has/Tak rerelease THIS instead of giving us Que and/or DOTM Soundwave > sometimes I just wanna scream my head off!
Autovolt 127
Good Colour but I already have the mold and not a huge fan of it.

It has nothing to do with being a movie toy. It just happens to be a crappy mold. Movie or not.

Yeah, the movie toys are actually overall awesome, but that mold really is a stinker. Saying that it's the best "leader movie Megatron" mold doesn't really mean much either...

or the real dotm mold truck no a tank.

I think he is beautiful myself, but the price tag is too much for me. The only reason I have the Shadow Command version is because I traded my FP Protector set for it. Otherwise I would be stuck with the awesome-but-should-have-been-a-leader DOTM Voyager Megatron.
CapnScumbone
perhaps the worst mold of Megatron in all of creation for an appropriately retarded price.

No, he was right... Megatron Leader toys look HORRIBLE. The Voyagers look much better, and are far more screen accurate.

Megatron never got a great toy, anyway, because his alt-modes and his robot mode are so angular and choppy, that it's hard to translate into a toy... If you ignore the back kibble, ROTF Voyager Megatron looked the closest to the big screen version, 2nd was DOTM Voyager Megatron, but the horribly bland paint job on that figure takes away a lot of points.

I would LOVE there to be a panel discussion on Movie versions of Megatron being developed into toys. Why they chose the gimmicks they did. What was so hard to design. It would be a facinating discussion.
As it stands, in my opinion, the best Megatron toy is TF: Animated Leader, followed by TFP Voyager, then Cybertron Leader Megatron, and the rest can fight for the scraps.

I'm not hating on them for being "movie toys" ... some Movie toys are among the best TF ever made... The Human Alliance Jazz, ROTF Leader Prime, Deluxe ROTF Sideswipe, all are excellent toys. Leader Starscream & Brawl look fantastic. Megatron, unfortunately, got so many last minute touchups and re-designs that the folks at Hasbro weren't able to keep up. Prime they could constantly improve, because he remained the same between films (other than the metallic 6-pack).

I said it before when pics first surfaced, but I would love to have that paint scheme onDOTM Voyager Megs. Neither Movie Leader Megatron mold looked any good to me, and while DOTM Megs looks cool, the lack of paint hurt it. Guess I'll keep waiting for an attractive representation of Movie Megatron.
Rayzilla Prime
I don't necessarily think it's the worst mold ever, but considering what literally came out and sat on the shelf right beside it (ROTF Leader Optimus), naturally, this thing is underwhelming. Definitely not worth the price.

Every custom I've seen of it always has work done to the arms. And every custom I've seen is a step-up.

Thought to their credit, that paint scheme actually looks good. I like it.
LigerPrime
Darn...I think I must be one of the that really like this mold. It screams of 'viciousness' every time I look at it. The only downside is the gimp left arm.

I recall reading somewhere that ROTF Meg was designed in toy form first but his appearance changed during the production of the movie?
ToddJumper
I personally love this figure. $140 is not bad compared to the $300 dollars that Shadow Blade Megatron has been going for on Ebay, in fact this is a better paint job IMO.
The Bucket Kitten
$140!?, Yeah... back to the "Pass List".
Runamuck
When people say "Shadow Blade Megatron", they mean the Animated Leader class toy, right?
CommandoNinja13
This Megatron looks awesome!
