    Ebay seller [EBAYLINK="200105511505"]eptoys71[/EBAYLINK] has put up a new listing for Authentic Action Megatron. We've seen this one before, except what we haven't seen is his "vehicle mode", which according to the seller is accomplished by swapping the limbs and attaching the weapon.

    I seriously, seriously doubt it... The guy just pegged it into a screw hole in the back of Megatron's head, and he thinks Transformers all have vehicle modes... We know it's an action figure line with no transformation.

    It does fit the overall "shape" of the vehicle mode, though. And Hasbro's own guidelines on the merchandise did say all things with the Transformers brand on it should transform somehow. Chalk it up as a rumor for now, we'll see once the thing shows up in packaging.

    haha i love how there is debate over whether or not that is an actual vehicle mode..... could you imagine if this was released as just a toy without a movie to promote it

    I... don't think there's a vehicle mode on this figure. It needs wings. I'm more inclined to believe that the "transforming" aspect of this figure is converting his arms into the fusion cannon, which that extra piece looks like.

    Bingo! I'm almost positive that's what that is. That's one hell of a cannon if you ask me.

    I bet they all have the "remove arms, replace with gun" gimmick.

    After seeing this and other movie Megatrons(except for the leader class one), no one has a right to complain about Cybertron Metroplex ever again :p

    Despite the legoing out an unexisting "alt mode" it does prove one thing: That thing uses friggin Revoltech joints. No question about it. 0_0

    I own this toy from the original report at the beginning of April. IT DOES NOT TRANSFORM. I think someone say it earlier that it might be a cannon but even that's a stretch. It's more of a non-transformimg protoform.

    **lawls at revoltech prime**

    They can release Movie Megatron any way they like. I'll never buy another Megatron now that I have his MP.
