Most of us acknowledge Optimus Prime because the Autobot chief who transforms right into a truck. That is the shape he is taken in many of the Transformers‘ tales. His rival, the Decepticon chief Megatron, initially remodeled right into a gun, however later adopted the type of a menacing tank.
On November 7, 2014, toy producer Takara Tomy dreamed up new transformations for these beloved robots. Optimus Prime adopted a lightweight gray shade (much like Megatron’s) that allowed him to rework right into a PlayStation console, full with a controller. Megatron’s armor turned to the shiny black of the Sega Genesis (also called the Mega Drive in different territories). Regardless of being one of many universe’s biggest threats, Megatron’s Genesis transformation was a colourful Sonic the Hedgehog cartridge.
These online game variations of Prime and Megatron had been launched as limited-edition motion figures, which you’ll be able to see within the galleries beneath:

Megatron x Genesis
Given simply how fashionable Transformers is as a collectible model, each of those figures go for large bucks in secondhand markets, and have currently been mentioned once more in Transformers circles as Hasbro focuses closely on limited-edition Transformers motion figures which can be based mostly on fashionable manufacturers like Ghostbusters, Top Gun, and Back to the Future.
The Transformers returned to video video games late final yr in Battlegrounds, a turn-based technique expertise for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Swap, and PC. Many followers (like me) are holding out hope that High Moon Studios will get one other shot on the Cybertron sequence it revamped a decade in the past. On the very least, remasters of War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron could be superior!
