    I wouldn’t mind a head remold of G1 Megatron toys. Instead of a fusion cannon, he would have a simple mini robot that transforms into his tank’s cannon.

    That’s pretty much what I expect. A Megatron retool that turns into non-tank vehicle. Problem is, most Megatron figures are voyager or larger, and I don’t think Xaaron needs a figure that big.

    It might not be ideal, but I wouldn't mind seeing Cyberverse Deluxe Class Megatron repainted as Xaaron with a more Generations style head and with another accessory other than the fusion cannon.

    It wasn't too long ago I proposed a Deluxe-class Megatron that homaged the G1 Action Master. The base figure would transform into a small tank, and it would come with a large turret-less tank that would transform into a power-up armor suit the Deluxe could fit inside. In tank mode, he could function as a small tank or fold in the treads and become the turret for the large tank. And be sold at the Leader price point.

    I hadn't considered using the base Deluxe for an Emirate Xaaron redeco, but that's a great idea.

    I think a Siege Springer retool could have also worked.

    Marvel comics character. Doesn't exist as far as cartoon purists are concerned.

    Then again, anything produced after 1987 doesn’t exist for many people... heck, Pat Lee thought anything after the movie was G2 :lol

    You're obsessed with remolds Bass. I'd be happy with a unique mold, like Impactor got. A Cybertronian tank with only modest defenses/offensive capability is fine with me. If not, and a remold is mandatory, I simply don't want it.

    It shouldn't be stuck with an inappropriately imposing silhouette just because both characters share one or two passing similarities. Blocky chests are are a weak and simplistic association between the two IMO.

    If siege scaling is a factor, then he'd be a small deluxe like cliffjumper, since he was pretty small compared to impactor.

    If you read the UK issues you meet him much sooner. I believe he first appears in the 1985 Annual, which came out right around where you are right now.

    does a transformers character exist in Transformers media?
    then Hasbro should make a toy of that character.

    *glares at the massive pile of RID2015 Decepticons that dont have toys*

    I can definitely see a Megatron redeco, with the chest there.

    But he also doesn't need to transform.
