Mega Drive Megatron Transformed

The biggest surprise back at Wonder Festival 2014 Winter was Megatron as a Sega Mega Drive. At a recent Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. business meeting, a video was taken of the Mega Drive Megatron prototype being transformed from console to robot. A cartridge can be placed in Megatron's slot, making me wonder if the cartridge's label will be that of an actual existing game or some made-up Transformers game. The controller becomes a sort of wings nubs that attach to his back. It's a weird figure that kind of makes sense.

Mega Drive Megatron is a super cool figure, but the video may not have been the best thing to put online simply because Megatron's joints look very loose during the transformation. This is obviously still the prototype, so tighter joints could be in the works for the final figure. I am super excited for the figure, though. The figure is could tentatively come out from July - September, so if that's the case than pre-order could open up at anytime. (via Tomopop)

Megatron as a Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) will attempt to rule the 16-bit era.
