Megatron Smallest TF - G1 - Figures

Take a poorly designed transformable Walther P-38, wash it in hot water and what do you get? World's Smallest Megatron.


Set Includes
As you may have guessed, I've never been a fan of the G1 Megatron toy, unless you're referring to the Action Master - now that's a fine toy. Anyway, through a little pressure from a friend, I decided to give World's Smallest Megatron a chance. Megatron is 2 7/16 inches long in gun mode. The grip is black and the rest of the gun is silver with some red bits showing through on either side that are parts of his robot mode or transformation.

Megatron also includes a three-piece gun sight. I'm not sure why the sight separates into three components unless it was simply for authenticity's sake as the original Megatron sight had the same function.

Start-Change-Finish
Unfortunately, Megatron's transformation is faithfully translated into this smaller toy. What his means are a lot of small, moving parts that feel like they will break off at any second.

  1. Push the feet out from the base of the grip and extend the grip down.
  2. Swing the sides of the grip out and forward.
  3. Flip the head down and swing the arms out and down.
  4. If you're lucky, you'll be able to raise the chest up then swing the barrel of the gun down/
  5. Rotate the chest to the side and bring the barrel to point forward.
  6. Extend the arms and flip the hands out.
  7. Bring the arms and head assembly up and rest the head atop the chest.
  8. Place the sight on Megatron's right arm to form his cannon.

Transformation Completed
Megatron stands at 2 inches tall, a little taller if you measure the cannon as well. Megatron is a faithful representation of the original G1 toy, which may not be a good thing depending on how you like that toy. The interiors of his arms and legs are red as are his shoulders. I commend Takara for the amount of detail stuffed in this toy. From the head to the chest to the legs and just about everywhere else, there is no mistaking that this is anyone but Megatron.

Megs also has some good articulation for his size. His arms rotate all the way around, flip outward, and can be raised up. The hips are also positional on two hinges.

Overall
If you are a Megatron fan or enjoy the original and larger version of this toy, World's Smallest Megaton is the toy for you. If, like me, you never really liked the toy, this is something to be avoided. Megatron is flimsy and delicate and quite possibly shouldn't have been made. A World's Smallest Galvatron would have been a better choice in my opinion.
