    In the movies megatron has always had long spindly fingers. He couldn't use them in a fight cos they couldnt be clenched to a fist properly, in the forest battle in rotf , Megatron never punched prime and the same in the first movie.

    It was only in the third movie, we see him with a normal right hand.

    It may be a pointless question but they were pretty useless , except from looking sinister

    So , did you like his tf1 and rotf style hands or would you have preferred 'normal' dotm style hands?

    I didn't like his fingers. They were only good for grabbing Sam.

    Of course they can be balled into a fist. He makes fists all the time. In TF1 he punches his way out of the building he and Sam were in and you clearly see them balled into fists. In ROTF he clenchs his right hand into a fist as he tells Sam he wants to kill him. It's focused on. And useless? In TF1 he was grabbing Prime and tossing him around with ease, ripping and clawing at him. Those things were dealing massive damage. If anything his normal hand in DOTM is more useless, since he never punches with it and he only uses it to hold his gun, which he could do with his old hands anyway. Plus he can't pin a human down and tortue them with his "normal" DOTM hand, which just goes to show how much more useful his old hands were for detail work and manipulating small objects.

    Yeah but a gun does more damage than fingers, and I don't think those old TF1 and ROTF fingers could hold a gun. They were too long and weird.

    It's kinda funny how his right makeshift arm is less clusterfucky looking than his normal left hand.

    I actually kinda liked the tiny sub fingers on his normal hand he used to pin Sam down with though. Being able to hold a gun doesn't matter when practically all the robots have weapons built into them except in DOTM probably to advertise Mechtech.

    I say that his hands were useless cos he never used them as fists, and it didn't look like they could be used properly as one as it was to clusterfu.....
    .....if ya get my drift

    That is a flimsy excuse and you know it. In TF1 he held a single-wield gun AND had the massive cannon formed from both arms, and in ROTF his entire right arm became a gun. It's not like he either had to use his bare hands or a gun before. He's had a gun in every body no matter the hands. Comparing the hands themselves the TF1/ROTF hands were far more useful and capable. And of course he can hold a gun with his old hands. They're really no bigger than his DOTM hand and he has MORE fingers on his old hands, which would make gripping a gun more stable. Plus they weren't all long, some were normal length, it was really his "middle" figer that was long, and you don't pull a trigger with your middle finger anyway.

    Dude, I just pointed out two specific instance where he did use them as fists. And even if he didn't use them as fists how does that make them useless? Do you only use your hands as fists.

    And again, your argument makes no sense since he never used his new DOTM hand as a fist either, which by your deffinition makes it useless as well.

    I don't catch your drift, because you just sort of... I don't know what you said. His hands aren't a clusterfuck, they're one large finger flanked by two thinner, shorter fingers that split halfway up with a "thumb" on each side of the hand, each finger ending in a little "claw" for grasping.

    And besides all this, his new hand isn't even a proper hand either. It's a finger short, it lacks a joint in each finger and it's chubbier than a human's hand, meaning he couldn't hold regular guns with it either, only his shotgun.

    I mean he didn't use them to punch anyone , he was alright punching through a roof in TF1 and such cos the roof was only thin compared to big robots ,but they didn't look right to be useful for punching bots ,
    I don't kno that's jst wat I observed :lolol 
    Sorry for any confusion :eek:

    TF1 he had a flail. ROTF he had a blade. Those beat punches any day.

    I always wondered how he was able to pick anything up with those.

    I think it's more like what he can't pick up. Those hands could wrap around just about anything!

    He didn't need to. His guns were built-in.

    Until Hasbro came up with..mechtech..

    I used to hate them, but for this version of Megatron, they worked. But if there's ever going to be a reboot, I hope they go with the more normal claws from DOTM.

    I thought they were unique, and it never got in the way of taking care of business.

    I thought it was cool that Ol' Megsy got a new, better looking hand. I did like the idea of him having one of each, though I never like his weird clawy things. And his new "Shotgun" really suited his new look.

    In ROTF he defiantly seemed handicapped in terms of fighting prime in a fist fight, he seemed 2 suffer from being rebuilt with weaker decepticon parts. While the first film it was megatron at his best, a powerful built body quick and could block prime's hits, and go on the counter attack and over power optimus

    He held the shotgun in his left hand TWICE in the movie. Your logic is flawed
