Hasbro Transformers Shattered Glass Megatron Action FigurePreviously a super-rare BotCon souvenir, Shattered Glass "Heroic Decepticon" Megatron was a spaceship. Now it's a spaceship that's a tank with some new kibble bolted on, and while clever I don't know if I'd say "it works."

As a robot, it's fine - it's an off-white Megatron with some blue and some red, with the black helmet just like some of the early prototypes/models/etc. for the original Megatron marketing and toys. Because it is significantly cheaper than the BotCon model, it's going to be popular and is the first Shattered Glass Decepticon to be released outside the BotCon/Fan Club world.

Megatron is Megatron, without battle damage and with some new colors. Siege Megatron has been done several times - the basic version, a G2 Combat version, 3 with Netflix-specific deco so far, plus another one with G1-style animation paint. (And two retools based on a revised Earth mode!) This is the first Siege version without extensive paint - no tiger stripes, and no battle damage, which alone makes it stand out as something interesting. He has a sword on his arm that's a nod to the tank/sword from Energon Megatron, and the blue rocket wings are similarly based on that mold. The sword is the same sword you got with Siege, and the painted fusion cannon looks a bit like the BotCon toy - it's just not clear.

The light grey (white?) robot stands just under 7-inches high, and has about 20 points of articulation. It's sturdy - it looks bright, it stands up nicely. It's a nice action figure, and I think this looks really cool. I just hope we never, ever get the Siege Megatron mold again. I've got plenty, and I've even skipped a couple of them.

Transformation demands instructions because the alternate space ship mode is bizarre. The toy is still the same as the 2019 Siege tank, just transformed oddly with some extra kibble parts bolted on. There's no specific placement for the sword, but his wing pieces plug in the sides and you put a fake cockpit on there. Retooled legs may have looked better, but budgeting is real. The clear sprue parts are a clever way to work around tooling (and retooling) budgets, and may inspire fans to make their own add-on parts for mistransformed figures. Future Sixshot-style toys could be enabled by this.

It's not a fantastic vehicle - but if it was a convention exclusive, I assume people would be praising its creativity. I'd like to see what else they can come up with merely by changing the transformation. We don't see a lot of this pre-planned in repaints, either, so doing it after the fact is pretty clever.

The vehicle is goofy looking, but it kind of had to be - unless they did Energon Megatron in this style, which we'll probably see in the next few years anyway. (Energon turns 20 in 2003.) Until then, this is a nice, bright and colorful stand-in. It's new, it's not the BotCon one, and the face is a little dark - but it's affordable for now and a perfectly nice Megatron mold you probably have as many as eight times by now with all the repaints and retools - at least this one did something a bit more different.
