    In the most recent episode of Animated, "A Fistful of Energon" Megatron displayed a quick gerwalk mode while "rising up" I was wondering if somebody with the toy could tell me if it's possible and if it is, put up some pics of it.

    If the legs can close and you remove the propellors, he kinda looks like a gun.

    You can transform him that way, kinda, but he wont stand at all, and it looks ricockulous.

    How about as a psuedo-futuristic space gun?

    That one's SO not happening. There's just no way to make it look okay.

    It's do-able, though he can't crouch like that. The Activator is currently posed that way on my TF shelf, next to Gerwalk Blitzwing :)

    Yes, it is doable, but there's no balance to the figure without either proping up the cannon or weighing down the back of the feet for counterbalance.

    Due to the cheats of the Activators, not to mention a lower weight, it is do-able and can balance that way as well.

    Wow, I never knew how hard it was to pose and photograph Megatron, I am sooo glad I've never done that. Now seriously if it won't stand up the take a picture of it on it's side.

    Let's say in this photo, I tried something similar to that (not exactly like the previous photo, but close to it).

    I never understand the amazement of this "pseudo" half-bot half-vehicle thingy brought from Robotech/Macross.

    Just wait till Macross sees this. They're going to want Hasbro to remove that scene and rebroadcast the episode.

    Thank you finally! That looks pretty cool and also I agree with Caine, though it is fun to be able to kick your enemy while flying away, in a sense if you did that with Animated Megatron it would look like Trinity from that scene in The Matrix.
