    I certainely do. He's better than the G1, BW, Unicron Triology, BM and IDW version by far in my book.

    I'm almost there, just need the toy to say 100% yes.

    After seeing the ALLSPARK ASM Video clip of his electronic feature I was pretty convinced.

    His alt mode is Excellent complement to his fusion Cannon.

    I can't lie ... it felt weird having a G1 style head that wasn't sounding like Frank Welker. Seemed out of place for a little bit (Corey Burton's voice was perfect for the Movie-style head, but this new G1 head ... I don't know yet).

    He's pretty far up my list.

    He's badass, but he thus far lacks the subtlety and depth of BW Megs. But we're only one season in, so you never know...

    I can't say best, but as far as Megatron as G1 Megatron redon, he's my favourite, but BW Megatron will always be the greatest Megatron.

    He's brutal, decptive, powerful, and does it all without a truck load of exposition or flashy Anime DBZ power flare stuff.

    I'm actually surprised, Megs has had so many of the strobing Anime Backgrounds, yet no Anime-esque attacks.

    Corey Burton's voice talent is perfect. Not BW Megs, but better than AEC (And before you all yell at me "ZomG Tehy were al teh sam e guy!!1!!" I think we can all agree Kaye's Megatron was way better sounding in BW/M than AEC, simply because he had more freedom with his lines with the former)


    But yeah, I agree with Kickback.Not the best, but pretty damn close for me.

    G1 Megatron will always be the best. No comparison.

    Yes very much. Hes a fight till the end bad ass, instead of turn into gun flying screamers hand shoot once RETREAT! Megaton. This Megatron is just pure awsome. G1 Retreatatron is third best.

    I agree this is the best series. I'm a huge fan of G1 but Animated is better in every sense.

    Yeah, he is, imo. Both in design, personality, and voice. His Leader class toy also seems to be really awesome, and that's just from pictures and a vido of his lights and sounds gimmicks.

    Somewhere on Youtube. It was a video from the New York Toy Fair demonstrating Leader Megatrons and Bulkheads electronics (I think it was both of them anyways).

    Edit: Here it is-
    , and the Bulkhead one-

    I'm probably still a little partial to BW Megs since he was so suave, charming, and outright dastardly.

    Of course, TFA Megs incorporates some of those aspects as he incorporates aspects from all previous Megatrons. TFA Megs is really the "Ultimate Megatron" in the Marvel Comics sense of the word.

    Definitely a top-notch villain.

    I'm in love with his voice. I'm not gonna lie. He's not the mustache-twirling Megatron of Beast Wars, yet he's as devious as the G1 Megatron in getting what he wants. He's also a brutal fighter... something that past Megatron's have... sort of lacked.

    Megatron's voice has taken time to grow on me, but he sounds right now. The right kind of menacing without being too cartoony, or overdone.

    My favourite is still Beast Wars Megatron, but this is a close second. Awesome Decepticon!

    The voice and head did not match up at all, I think. I keep on wanting to hear Welker's voice coming from a G1 Megs head design. The english accent really isn't helping Megs sound evil enough..
