    True- but Takara did a green tank, but but if they did do a LG green version, it would be with a predacon logo and be called Megastorm... I would by that as a next LGEXclusive

    The Title description has an error in it ; it calls the Puple Megatron "Combat Hero Megatron" that is incorrect he's called "Hero Megatron" or at a push "Decepticon Hero Megatron" Combat Hero Megatron is the name of the unreleased grey with green markings repaint.

    [​IMG]

    Same is true of Optimus Prime - the Blue Optimus is called "Combat Hero Optimus Prime" the plain red & white one is called "Hero Optimus Prime" or at a push "Autobot Hero Optimus Prime" - though Technically he's really just 'Optimus Prime' of the Hero size Class assortment.

    If you want to be absolutely strict about it one could make a valid argument that all 4 of them are just Megatron or Optimus Prime and that Hero applies to them only as it's their size class of the product.

    It would not be to unlike the situation with the "Legends Bumblebee" (The robot that was originally a pretender) one can argue that he's called "Legends Bumblebee" or that he's part of a sub-line called Legends and his name is just "Bumblebee".

    But in the case of applying the name CHOP to the Blue Megatron that is 100% wrong.

    See this example : 'HERO' is a tag used in the corner - and the toy is just described as "Autobot Leader Optimus Prime".
    It does appear in the Hasbro catalogue as Hero assortment though or 'Hero Optimus Prime' and 'Hero Megatron' the unreleased Hound is also called "Hero Hound"

    [​IMG]

    The term Combat Hero was applied as a descritpion in the catalogues for solicitation purposes, The TFCC Magazine also calls the plain white & red Optimus "Hero Optimus Prime" in it's bio too I noticed.

    See the repaints didn't even get a new card on their samples :

    [​IMG] So calling them CHOP & CHM is akin to the reason "Seekers" got called seekers - because of a catalogue or how European folks can call a Stunticon or a Combaticon as "Special Team"

    Anyway I thought i'd mention it - Personally I tend to think of Purple Megs as being Archforce anyway.

    Nice! Glad they gave us options at least (It should have had a G2 symbol from the get go though).

    What's up with those Predacon symbols though?

    Well, crap. I talked myself out of buying this because he didn't have MEGATRON RULES! on him. Not even kidding.

    So is it safe to assume that the Hasbro version is the only G1-styled Megs we\'re getting of this particular mold? I mean, I like mine enough to make him my definitive G1 Megatron (for now,) but it would be nice to get one with a more cartoon-accurate deco with some more paint apps to replace the sticker details.

    I’m planning on dyeing the lower legs on mine soon and I’m going to try to use Ocean decals. The Decepticon logo sheet is around $16. And I think the LG-13 Megatron rub decals will work (they’re around $6, Autobot logo only included). Leader Megatron and Voyager have close enough chest dimensions I think it will work. Pics in Radicons when I finish. (Already have pics of where I detail painted his abs.)

    I don't think Takara has ever had a Green tank as the original Megatron? The EZ-Collection Legend/Legion was Archforce Purple as was the United Classics and the Cloud Voyager was Silver/Grey.

    There is room in my collection for a G2 green version of the Titans Return Voyager. My money is waiting for you Hasbro.....

    The large, green G2 Megatron was release by Takara as Megastorm in BWII (minus all references to Megatron, of course.)

    Hence the "as the original Megatron" caveat! There's also Armada Megatron to be taken into consideration if you remove that.

    Yeah we knew about the earlier ones when the instructions were first discovered. Can't find the post/thread here but it was c October 31st going by what I see elsewhere. At that point it was 40-49, and I don't think anyone's looked at them since!

    I'd say no. Unless BW Megatron's previous identity was Archforce!

    Eh, we already know that intimately. We don't need to be reminded.
