Transformer of the Day for April 28, 2009


-Faction: Predacon / Vehicon
Beast Wars / Beast Machines (1996-2000)
-Function: Predacon Commander / Vehicon Leader
-Motto: Purification is the Key to Our Salvation”
-Notable Toy: Botcon Exclusive (Hasbro, 2006)

Notes: Despite the changing in characterization between Beast Wars and Beast Machines, this Megatron is simply a great character! A megalomaniac yesssss, but one with a sense of humour and irony. I mean HE ROLLERBLADES! Admittedly, picking the right toy representation was tough because the many variations are all good (something quite rare in fact!) But I’m going with the Pre-Beast Wars Botcon redeco because the mould really does justice to his cartoon appearance in all three forms. But, as evidence below, I must also give a shout out to Moon Base Megatron just for sheer audacity of putting out a toy based on a giant floating head.

((Apologies and thanks to seibertron.com for the Botcon toy pics.)
