-Era: Machine Wars (1997)
-Function: Warrior / Clone
-Motto: “The Skies Belong To Me”
-Notable Toy: Machine Wars Basic Release (Hasbro, 1997)
Notes: With Machine Wars, Kenner tried an abortive detour away back to basics. The limited Kay-Bee run consisted of classic characters as repainted European tailenders and unreleased spring-loaded basic vehicles. Megaplex is the only truly original addition to the line, envision as a clone of Megatron himself, one so convincing he’s actually mispackaged with Megatron’s artwork! Megaplex’s name would later live on with a eHobby repaint of G1 Megatron in 2003.
