Fan2Fan have revealed some more details about Masterpiece Megatron

Kremzeek figure included (different mold from the one that comes with Kiss Players Autorooper x Atari)
– Working Trigger action when in Gun mode
– Same size as MP-01 G1 Convoy!!
– LED gimmick in scope
– Die-cast parts
– Memorable accessories include energy mace, laser-cutter and gun from Transformers The Movie (used by Megatron in the fight with Optimus Prime).
– New transformation designs and concepts, for example moving the trigger part to the legs, improving overall Robot proportion.
– Due to toy gun regulation in the US, Walter P-38 Megatron was never in the plans when the Japan team worked with the US team. MP-05 Megatron is designed and developed solely by the Japan team, solely for the Japan market.

MP-05 Megatron Pre-order from XyberToys

Written by Big Bot on November 16, 2006 | News,Takara,Toys | Tags: ,

XyberToys have put up a pre-order for MP-05 Megatron, for £69.90. They are also offering a service to unpack and transform the item so that it can get through customs. Also to note is that it has not been revealed whether it will be shipped in Gun mode to begin with.

***MP-05 may or may not be factory packed in gun mode***

***PLEASE NOTE– VERY IMPORTANT ***

Due to the nature of this toy, Megatron comes packed in Gun Mode. And this may pose problems when undergoing customs clearance to all countries.
Therefore, we would like to highlight to all customers that we WILL NOT BE LIABLE for any actions taken by customs, e.g confiscation or taxes.

However, we can provide a service to unpack the megatron toy, and semi-transform him into robot mode, and pack him safely along with the rest of the packaging for shipment to our customers. This would definitely prevent any ‘security’ problems at all customs points, and would allow safe transit of this toy to you. This has been tested and proven to work.

If you would still like to have a mint in sealed box (MISB) item, then please be reminded of the above agreement, that we will not be liable for any consequences of shipping Megatron in gun mode.

We sincerely apologise to all custoemers for all this hassle on buying this really awesome and rare toy, but we need to be honest and upfront on the possible scenarios of purchasing this product, mainly due to the current security precautions and alerts at worldwide customs checkpoints.

MP-05 Megatron Revealed?

Written by Big Bot on | News,Takara,Toys | Tags: , ,

actoys.net has revealed an image that COULD be Masterpiece Megatron in robot mode. It is unclear whether it is official or a fan made item.

Forum member Nemesis Scourge has received a reply from Fan2Fan about the release of MP Megatron.

Not at this time, the sales at Takara-Tomy are reluctant to release info on releases more than 3 months away, I guess they want to keep us focus on their new releases. Anyway I am pretty sure they will be releasing it considering the amount of hype it has stirred. Price and details still unknown.
