Hegemon is a fictional character and third-party Transformer homage to Generation 1 Megatron made by Toyworld in 2012 as a third-party Transformer. In 2012 Reprolabels released a set of labels for Hegemon that make it look more like Generation 1 Megatron.
Hegemon is a Transformer who turns into a handgun. He is an homage to the 1984 Transformers character Megatron.
According to the tech specs on the collector card for Hegemon he is incredibly strong, intelligent and carries massive firepower. His only failing is his slightly lower than average speed.
Prototype pictures of Hegemon were first posted on the web by Toyworld in December 2011.
Promotional photos of Hegemon compared him with a number of other toys, including Exgraver, Heavy Labor, Structor, Dr. Crank and Stormbomb. Promotional photos for TFC Toys Photron depicted it with Hegemon and Madblender.
