Lena81822 on Ebay has posted an auction for the Masterpiece Megatron Gold Version. This gold version of the Masterpiece Megatron figure is set for a release toward the end of the year in Asian markets, and sports this premium gold paint job. We’re not sure exactly what is meant to be referenced by this gold deco – our bets are it’s either “because it looks cool” or a reference to how some early comic stories, such as the UK annual story “Victory”, would sometimes color Megatron in gold rather than silver.
Whatever the reason, the gold does make Megatron look particularly regal. Check out a few in-hand pics of the robot mode after the break – the gun mode is not shown.
