The leader of the opposition (aka G1 Megatron) has joined the Legendary Heroes line!
The box is based on the packaging of the original release of the “Megatron” mold: Microman Gun Robo P38.
Inside the box you’ll find more accessories than in any previous release:
- Sight/Fusion Cannon (attached)
- 2x pointing hands
- 2x open hands
- Smiling face
- Stock stem
- Stock base
- Key to Vector Sigma
- Energy mace
- Movie pistol
- Pistol mode effects adapter
You’ll note that it comes with an orange plug in the barrel. No worries though, the plug is easily removable.
The robot is straight out of the original cartoon!
There have been some complaints about the hips since the joints are below the pelvis, but it doesn’t really bother me.
The odd jointing will, however, be obvious in certain poses – including sitting in their upcoming Core Scenery throne set.
Since there are so many accessories I wanted to give a few of them a closer look.
It’s hard to see from the photo but the pistol grip is painted black.
the mace is one solid piece that can be held, it does not replace the hand like in the cartoon
Like the original toy, the extra pistol parts can be assembled into a weapon platform.
The Initial Premium
New with Agamenmnon is an “Initial Premium” pack that will only be included with the first release of the figure. The pack contains five effects parts:
- 1x large blast
- 1x small blast
- 3x long blasts
Sadly, the small blast effect doesn’t really fit onto the 1986 movie pistol. The barrel is the right size but the sight prevents it from being connected securely. Since the effect parts are made of soft plastic, I’m sure you could force it over the sight, but I haven’t tried.
It does, however, attach to weapons included with other releases, Abadon for example.
The Pistol Mode
The pistol mode looks great, just remember to lock everything in place to minimize gaps.
The adapter looks a little odd when attached (perhaps it doubles as a “grenade”) but does allow you to connect the effect pieces.
You can also trick it out with all of the accessories
One step of he transformation that was a pleasant surprise was that of the left arm into pistol mode. Despite the two arms looking the same, the left forearm splits and extends out to form the side of the pistol and cover the neck gap from robot mode.
This is a fantastic version of Megatron, it has an amazing transformation that is both complex and fun.
According to New Age Toys, there is a “mystery accessory” for Agamenmnon that will be given to people who pre-order all three of their upcoming 1984 Seekers.

Update: New Legs with Leviathan
New Age Toys put together a new set of legs to go with their original Agemenmnon which was included with Leviathan for those who pre-ordered all three Stormtroopers.
