Transformers Takara Legends LG-63 G2 Megatron
Headmaster (Beast Wars) Megatron
Even though the box indicates that this is “G2” Megatron, it’s actually Beast Wars Megatron. Confusing, no? The toy is a retool of Titans Return Blitzwing.
Funfact, Old Snake (actually Cobra Commander in Season 3 of the G1 cartoons) appears in the mini-comic, offering Beast Wars Megatron his own Transtector.
Hehe G2 throwback stickers.
The purple colors are a throwback to the old G2 “Hero” Megatron figure. I really wasn’t expecting to like this figure that much, but the color scheme really makes this figure pop way more than the Hasbro version. Nicely done Takara.
For the unfamiliar, Noble was actually Beast Wars Megatron trapped in an tiny organic body during the Beast Machines saga. The Maximals unwittingly accepted Noble into their ranks thinking he was another victim of Megatron’s virus. He later was able to purge his organics and gain control of a warship. Noble was then reduced to a simple-minded animal, free of Megatron’s personality. Noble later sacrificed himself fighting Megatron to save his friend, Nightscream.
The toy is a redeco of Titans Return Fangry.
