    Even if they technically can release a gun Megatron, they won’t. It will never happen.

    I guess this means we will also eventually get SS86 Cyclonus, Soundwave, and Blaster since they also got WFC molds that could be repainted or retooled.

    So do we know what the wave order is yet? I think it'd be funny if 86 Megatron was the first 2025 SS leader, and 86 Galvatron was the last 2025 SS leader.

    Commander Magnus is a 100% new mold. The Siege / Kingdom mold(s) had many flaws the ss86 commander fixed.

    What can Hasbro do 100% differently with Galvatron? And at the same size class?

    And everyone who bought MP36 as a child or whose parents gave it to them as a child, keep them up. Nobody? Oh…..

    Guess I should clarify not to hold your alt mode MP36 in the hand that you’re raising?

    Hasbro\'s bringing out the big guns (no pun intended) for 2025 huh?

    I wonder if their recent earnings report is related? What will they do for 2026 and onwards?

    Or more importantly, bought them at a Walmart or Target.

    Agreed IDK if they'd take the risk.
    Blaster is already getting one this year, Cyclonus and a new Soundwave (and Core Cassettes) probably for 2026 if I guess.
    Not much.

    Or a BBTS?

    Yes, gun shy (pardon the pun) retailers like Walmart and Target would not carry such a thing but they’re not the only game in town… I’m simply saying a CHUG MP36 sold by Takara could easily be imported and sold to folks in the states, exactly like MP36 was. Not Hasbro, not mainline, obviously.

    Honestly, I could care less if Megatron was a gun. I'm just glad we're finally getting a clean Megatron after the past few years if battle damaged ones (and no, I'm not counting Earthrise because that figure was horrible). 20240221_182428.jpg

    I really hope the Galvatron is just the kingdom one in a bluer-purple. I really like the Kingdom mold, it just needs better paint. I'm sure the Megatron is going to be a tank. Hopefully he has a properly slender robot mode and a barrel behind his shoulder.

    While ordering though a store that will carry them is great this is something that is being drivin' by Hasbro themselves, not Takara (they'll likely fix or improve whatever Hasbro churns out).

    I get what you want and I want gun Megatron too but the likelihood is practically zero for a toy that is intended to be sold in American stores (and not be tied as an exclusive which would further piss off everyone).

    So it's fine to hold onto a little hope but at the same time be realistic with it else you find yourself disappointed for getting hopes up too much.

    BBTS is not mass retail, it is a single website targeted towards collectors with many collector items, and imported the figure rather than received it from domestic distribution from Hasbro themselves. It is not remotely related to the conversation at hand.

    How you can conflate an import toy to a domestic retail release is beyond me.
