Toy News: Official photos of "Legends" G2 Megatron and...Savage Noble?
As the Takara Tomy exclusive "Legends" line winds down, there are still some fun releases coming. Thanks to both the Takara Tomy site and the Takara Tomy Twitter feed we now have official photos and a description of the upcoming "G2 Megatron". Based on the Generation 2 "Combat Hero" Megatron figure, this figure is a redeco of the "Titans Return" Voyager Class Megatron packaged with a redeco of the mini-beast that came with Fangry.
This is no ordinary set however. Aside from the visually striking purple and black color scheme for Megatron, the mini-beast has been repainted to represent Savage Noble, the "Beast Machines" organic Transformer who really housed the Spark of the Beast-era Megatron! In addition to that, the Head Master has been given "Beast Wars" Megatron's colors, so this set winds up being a meta reference to the name Megatron.
On top of all that there is an additional sticker sheet that lets you add either G2 inspired details or Predacon symbols to Megatron!
The official description of the figure is below (translation via Google):
The leader of the Destron army, the destroyed great megatron is fully resurrected as the G2 megatron.
G2 Megatron transformed from tanks that appeared in the Transformers G 2 series developed in 1994 appeared as a triple changer that can be transformed into a head master function and jet aircraft.
A mini beast that can be transformed into a weapon is attached, and a new image of megatron spreads in conjunction with play of the head master figure.
The head master function continues to work in conjunction with the same series sold separately, as well as items that transform into the base of the same series, such as cross head on (head replacement combined) and compatibility of boarding play at the vehicle and position fixing by micro pin You can play in conjunction, By aligning Sea Rise, play will spread widely.
