Super megatron is a Takara tomy generations selects figure, hasbro won’t be showing it off at nycc
i didnt know that generations selects could be a takara excluive thing! you learn something new every day, neat.
yep, if you look on the pulse pages for star convoy, gulf and turtler it specifically labels them takara tomy generations selects whereas all of the hasbro ones are listed as transformers generations selects. super megatron was first teased by takara alongside blacked out images of turtler and star convoy, so deductive reasoning says its part of their set. also takara tomy generations selects seem to be heavy remolds whereas hasbro ones are a new head at most. its basically two concurrently running lines with the same name, but different design goals
you can retool TR Soundwave into a Grandus. Just put some tank treads on his chest and give him CW Superion's head.
To better illustrate my point here's a custom I did a little while ago that I'd love to see Takara do for real
dude those rock SOCKS! TR soundwave is totally boxy enough, never thought of him!
Oh! I thought it got delayed until November! Maybe there’s hope of getting it sooner from HP.... (not)
NOW OPEN THE BOX RK!

Man King Poseidon and Star Convoy look amazing.
Still looks cool even with the same two limbs. Bit of a Superlink vibe.
What are the chances the arms can hold up another bot as gun? All my UW arms are loosey goosey
That looks pretty damn good, much better than the original use of the mould actually (and that was pretty solid I think).
Hope it's released soon.
star convoy looks amazing
Oh no, do I want Star Convoy after all? That robot mode is bloody lovely.
I like how the feet were retooled to hide the dinky ankle hinges.
Looks decent... I missed the Pulse pre-order, but I will probably pick it up through some other venue.
Still wish they had retooled the front truck windows to be angled, though. Their squareness, sandwiched in between the angled lines of the chest-star and the headlights, is so visually jarring and unappealing to me. It's like nails on a chalkboard when I look at him.
I know, right? I thought I'd talked myself out of this one but it looks way good, especially with the chrome.
I dunno. They probably want you to.
I think he’s exactly what I wanted from that Prime, style.
