Transformer of the Day for November 1, 2009


-Faction: Decepticon
Armada-Energon-Cyberton (2002-2006)
-Function: Leader
Join Me and I Will Send You to Battle. Defy Me, and I Will Send You to Oblivion.“
-Notable Toy: Voyager (Hasbro, 2002)

Notes: The Unicron Trilogy Megatron/Galvatron is an exercise in hits and misses. While Armada Megatron is a great tank rendering with decent colouring, the Galvatron power mode seems unconvincing. For Energon, the situation is reversed, with a lackluster paint application on the Megatron but a dynamic rendering of G1 Galvatron for the second release, making the switch to spaceship mould almost worthwhile. Similarly, the quixotic choice of a sports car mode for Megatron (harking back to what, his gobot days?) fails with its original colours, but is almost win with the G1-style Megatron colours as (inexplicibly) Galvatron. Really, they just couldn’t figure out what to do with the great leader.

(Apologies and thanks to shmax.com for the toy image.)
