The megalomaniacal leader of the Decepticons finally gets the Masterpiece treatment that he deserves, and is fully transformable into a Walther P-38, as he was originally designed to be in both the Transformers G1 animated series and toy versions. Megatron's Walther P-38 gun mode is an oversized version of the gun in order for Megatron's robot mode to be in the same size and height as the Masterpiece Convoy/Optimus Prime. Megatron would certainly not be able to exude his intimidating presence in robot mode had Takara Tomy decided to go with an accurately-scaled representation of a Walther P-38, which would greatly reduce Megatron's height in robot mode.
In gun mode, albeit oversized, it is a perfect representation of a Walther P-38 semi-automatic pistol commonly used by the Germans during World War II (and by Lupin III...hmmm...!), and with hardly any visible toy-like attributes! The scope measures 23cm in length and comes with an LED light inside! The pistol also comes with a working trigger and safety lever.
In robot mode, Megatron measures 30cm tall to the top of his head and 34cm tall to the top of his gun barrel attached to his back. Megatron's robot mode is decked out with glorious mechanical detail and body proportions that are faithful to the animated show's design, most noteworthy being the brilliant work done on the head sculpt. Made of diecast metal and ABS plastic, this is a fully articulated action figure, right down to his individually posable fingers. He comes armed with an energy flail weapon, plus his blaster gun and laser dagger as used in the Transformers animated movie that dealt a fatal blow to Optimus Prime. A special Kremzeek figure is also included.
