    The leader of the Decepticons has never really had a consistent alt mode, in contrast to Optimus Prime who is always a truck. So which Megatron alt mode is your personal favorite? Honestly I prefer it whenever he transforms into an alien jet. A tank is a close runner up.

    G1 Megatron's realistic gun mode is hands down the best. Why? Because you can also use him to rob a liquor store.

    But Megatron as Gun is by far the best alt mode, it can be lethal.

    Tank.

    Keeps the villainous symbolism of being a gun, the fundamental instrument of war, with the added practicality of being an actual vehicle his size that doesn't need mass-shifting or someone else to hold him.

    Helicopter and flying hamburger tank are tied for second place.

    Yeah, I'm partial to a tank mode.
    Or tank/jet triple changer. But gotta have that tank in there.

    Helicopter... Animated Megatron is and will always will be the best designed Megatron, a unique alt mode for the big bad while still retaining a design reminiscent of the OG.

    Tank. It doesnt bother me when he turns into a jet, but the arm cannon doesnt always work for jet modes.

    I LIKE Megs as a gun best but its almost impossible to pull off for American rerail tank and now jet/bomber have been his alt modes for so much longer than the Walther P-38.

    And if we're counting RiD01 Gigatron we should include those other versions that turn into dragons!

    I liked Megsy as a Tank, but also as a Gun. Both worked very well.

    I voted for the awesome dual rotor attack chopper he was in TFA. It's mobile, well armed, more maneuverable than a jet but no less effective in standard combat. No need for sloppy strafing runs with an alt mode that has to continuously move forward when you can just hover and dodge with precision. Plus, it's not as generic as a jet or tank can sometimes end up. It has a built in identity due to how seldom used it is.

    Any more lethal than a tank or a jet? They seem to be higher up the lethality tier than a mere handgun. Not to mention his alt mode is rarely shown as useful or even functional unless someone else is holding him.

    Well, as many an old toy pic shows, if hand Megs and Gun Megs ever teamed up they'd be set.

    Of course, imagine the Broadside-level irony if one Megatron had both a hand and a gun mode. :lol

    I'm a fan of every alt mode he's ever been.

    But a purple and gold T-Rex with roller skates has to be my favorite.

    Gotta go tank for the whole self-mobile alt mode and the mental image of Starscream keeping Megatron in a holster strapped to his hip-plate.

    Helicopter all the way.

    "Decepticons, transform and rise up!"

    It goes perfectly with that line, too.

    Every other mode has been done to oblivion so gun mode. Its Iconic, its unique. Nothing else speaks "Megatron".
