    Oh, so he does have the ultra mode.

    The canon likely splits for the tank mode, but in this pannel you can see how he's basically in his Ultra mode

    The shoulder cannons likely come from his arm's canon

    Why does he look like he's wearing a Naruto headband?

    Takara/TomyMall only sells it's products in Japan. You could using a mailing/delivery service as a middleman to send it to you, but that can be a hassle sometimes. Or You could wait for a third party seller to open preorders with a slight mark up(bbts,tcp,toydojo,etc). Pulse will probably import him at msrp.

    Man, the guy looks like he's a slight retool away from becoming Super-link Megatron/Galvatron. With his colors, he'd be an easy Shattered Glass Megatron!

    I'd lay odds on Hasbro Pulse getting him, just as they've been doing all the Takara exclusives this year.

    BBTS and the others are a sure thing.


    Super Megatron has a stylized S and M layered on each other, for Super Megatron.

    Since I have star convoy I gotta get this Super Megatron. I missed out on the seacons maybe I can get the six set for a decent price in the aftermarket but these are stellar. Love it. Probably better than the Star Convoy remold. That Galvatron mold was great it was just a stupid headmaster. If they got rid of that gimmick this will be gold. Ordered the first day

    I\'ve been avoiding these figures so as to not basically rebuy my whole G1 collection... but HOLY CRAP. This is definitely a must buy for me. I love the Super Megatron design. Loved how it was used in Animated. To have a classic/generations Super Megs is great.

    Wouldn’t it be easier to just retool the original TR Galvatron? he’s already much closer. All you really need is a new cockpit, shoulder cannons and wings.

    Yeah, as mentioned by others, Hasbro Pulse will likely have it to pre-order.

    If it's strictly Tomy Takara Mall excluding Hasbro Pulse for whatever funny business/reason (Siege Nemesis Prime), then TFsource, The Chosen Prime, et al will probably be able to hook you up.

    Guessing BBTS probably won't be allowed to sell Super Megatron its its being treated like Siege Nemesis Prime and the Seacons.

    I won't be hesitating to lock in a pre-order with the retailer that puts Super Megatron up first. :)

    It is a remold of titans return galvatron and that had the gun mode so I wonder if it can be done with this one.

    Agreed! Only Takara can give us fans this amount of stellar remolds and details and paint in a Transformer toy.
    Im looking at you... Hassbro.

    Using google lens I see convoys base mode is called "Z-base Mode" and he says "Star Combo - Simultaneous Fire <all at once firing>!"
    King poseidon goes into "Full Target Mode" all his limbs become their targetmaster forms.
    "Super Megatron, Rifles are not my only weapon." When he holds the silver matrix like a hammer and says "Matrix <kusu クス cousin?> Hammer!"
    Now ultra Megatron says "transform ultra tank mode"
    And convoy uses his "Reflex option shield" the folded out truck panels as a shield.

    I got one too, still works fine. Maybe it was a bad product run?

    Wait a few weeks, or less, Hasbro Pulse will announce their pre-order for it.

    He killed him, ate him, and possessed his power.

    Patience... HasbroPulse will have it... Patience...
