In 2014 Hasbro sneakily released a line of vinyl transformers into stores. Sadly, they were vinyls of Beast Hunters. Still, there's a certain charm to them that's hard to ignore, especially on clearance.
Megatron is hardly recognizable in Beast Hunters form. He reminds me of one of the Sharkticons known as Gnaw from the G1 line.
He comes sold with a card attached to a hook tag. These were sold in pegs, just like vinyls were in Japan. I got mine for $3 each on clearance.
The whole thing is soft vinyl, and it feels like a cheap dog toy - as it should.
Articulation is limited to the head, arms and waist.
Most of you don't "get" these. The reason why some of us vintage robot nerds dig these is that they are very reminiscent of the super robot vinyls that companies produced in the 70s and 80s. These are a direct homage to those vinyls made by Popy, Takatoku and even Takara.
