Collection 6 Megatron

Transformers Megatron was one of several Microman toys that was repackaged and sold as first series Transformers by Hasbro (and later Takara). Megatron was a silver or gray Walther P-38 and leader of Destron (Decepticon).  Takara originally reissued Megatron in 2001 as part of the 15th Anniversary Edition series.  The reissued version came with the full gun extensions that were not included in the original Japanese releases of Megatron. Megatron was reissued again in December 2002 for T/F Collection series as Collection No.06.

T/F Anniversary Edition

Transformers 16S Megatron was reissued in March 2001 as part of the original reissued line - Transformers 15th Anniversary Series.  Exclusive black version of Megatron was also sold as e-HOBBY exclusive and Japan Bot Con exclusive. The reissue used the old Microman Micro Change MC-12 / MC-13 mold which made it fully compatible with Microman figure.
