Rise of the Machines
Megatron is a moderately difficult Metal Earth model with 55 pieces on two sheets of metal that you will transform into the archenemy of Optimus Prime.
Each Metal Earth model is laser etched in meticulous detail on 11 cm (4.33") metal sheets. Pop out the pieces by hand (or use wire cutters to get especially crisp lines), bend the tabs using needle-nose pliers, and fit them together as shown in the simple pictorial instructions. For maximum dramatic effect, display your model on the LED Display Base or the Solar Spinner (sold separately, see below).
Please note that Metal Earth models have sharp edges and are not suitable for children under 14. Our Transformers models don't actually transform.
Are you curious...?
You can't have good-guy Transformers without bad-guy Transformers and Megatron obligingly fills that role. He rose from humble working origins to become a gladiator who took the name Megatronus (the Fallen), after one of the original 13 Primes. He stood up for the downtrodden against the planet Cybertron's corrupt rulers and became a mentor to the young Optimus Prime. Optimus would go on to lead the good-guy Autobots faction and Megatron became the leader of the bad-guy Decepticons. The two have been going after one another in film, television, games, toys, and books for more than 30 years now.
