    I was Wondering if anyone had thought of this
    Optimus prime in the Alternator line is a Dodge ram OK IT SELLS
    But say they make a Megatron as the start of the so called Military line and hes a tank
    How is Optimus supposed to go against a Tank or a Hummer for that megatron would just run over him or place a fewwell lined up shells into him and rip some holes into ol Prime
    Seriously its a bit like K.I.T.T going against Goliath,Goliath showed his worth
    inm the end K.I.T.T won but hey its just a thought

    ...going by that, G1 Prime should've easily crushed Megatron, Reflector and Soundwave + Cassetes....there's no way in reality that they'd stand a chance against a Truck like Prime....


    as for Alt Prime, as we've been told, it's a COMPROMISE, Hasbro never intended it to be Optimus, Takara would only use the mold if it was Convoy, but now have changed tune and called it Ginrai....


    it SHOULD have been Ironhide....

    Like Starscream NZ said, In G1 a Truck vs a Gun seems a little silly. But still people loved it!

    Also gas as a liquid doesn't explode, it's generally the vapors that ignite and are the most "explosive". And since when did TFs run off gasoline?

    I still stand by the fact that Megatron could shoot himself unaided, but that's not the topic of this thread.

    Of course he could. Anybody wanting to shuffle off this mortal coil could shoot themselves unaided. But wouldn't Megatron rather shoot the Autobots, and not himself? :D  :lol  :stick:  :confused2

    Hey, if Shockwave could be a flying gun that can shoot himself, so can megatron.

    No, Decepticharge's head was actually supposed to be Windcharger's on a Mustang body. What we got as Windcharger is actually Overdrive, who was then recolored as Decepticharge with Windcharger's head. Ironic, eh?

    I kind of always thought Megs in the alternator line would end up as some high end, big ass car. Like a Lincoln or something vaguely pimp-ish. :wink:

    A Hummer would make a LOT of sense...and since they DID get the license to do an authentic Joe Hummer it's not a big stretch to think there's a TF version in the works. Hopefully they got the rights to do both and not just the Joe version....

    I just wanted to point out that this is true. Megatron can transform into gun mode and fire at his enemies by himself. He doesn't need to be held by anyone. Gen.1 season 1..... Episode The Ultimate Doom part 3. Megatron transforms into gun mode,stays suspended in air without anyone holding him, and shoots down SkyFire.

    Yeah, he does it 3 times throughout the series. I made sure to pay attention to this when I got the big chinese boxset, as I was pretty sure he does.
