Transformers Robot Heroes GunRobo Custom Toy

Since Hasbro has never been able to re-release the original Megatron toy, due to the changing of US toy safety laws, it remains one of the only 1984 Transformers toy that never got recolored into a different character.

Transformers, Megatron, Micro Change, and GunRobo are all owned by some combination of Hasbro and Takara.
