    Just a thing that's been bugging me... I personaly like the Tank more.
    I never really liked the design of the Jet, although it gave him a very good robot mode close to his G1 slef I will admit. But I like the Tank because it's closer to his G1 self, interms of Alt Mode.

    Vote and Discuss!!!

    Yeah. I'd have rathered that they came up with a creative, imaginative solution to keep him a gun than to compromise so drastically.

    ...I wasn't being serious. :wink: 

    I like the tank better. It suits Megatron.

    I only tolerated his ridiculous alien jet design because I assumed it was a given that he'd get an Earth mode for the sequel. Now he's an even more ridiculous looking alien tank - complete with a gimped arm and his head sticking out of his "alt" mode like some sort of costume. Needless to say, I'm massively disappointed with what they've done with Megs in these movies.

    Both suck, but the tank is the lesser of two evils.

    You were kidding? Aw, I was serious. I was professional designer for a couple years, I would have loved a good challenge like that. Just making him something else feels like a cop-out. The tank is an easy solution, maybe a stationary cannon. Or, maybe a stationary gun that other robots, like Starscream. could carry and use.. Hmm...

    I'm in complete agreement. The jet design looked good - ish - but the tank looks bada$$. My only complaint with it is that his head sticks out, which'll probably be an easy target.

    I wouldn't mind that. But if I was a Transformer that turned into a gun I would want to be able to move around. A tank is pretty much that. It's a gun on treads! :p

    True, but I always thought that it was a fun dynamic that his Alt-mode required outside influence to function effectively. also, since Megatron retains the gun in robot mode, he's pretty much an ambulatory cannon anyway..

    i don't really care if he's a tank or jet, hell he could be a donky pulling a wagon full of crap. but i wish they give his arm cannon back. and i don't mean this deformed tank bot we go now with the really huge right arm and the baby arm on the left.

    Personally, in the movies I do not want to see him as a gun at all, even a cannon. I think it was Orci who said that it would be like Darth Vader turning into his own lightsaber. I think it would take away a bit of the menace of the character, having to be used by someone else. While I like the jet better than the tank, I think a tank is more befitting of Megs. Therefore I chose that.

    im waiting to see the tank in action in the movie, as i loved the design of the first movie jet. the toy was...meh. but the concept was pretty cool. ill need to see the movie before i vote, as i think both are sweet, but seeing the tank in action could change my mind.

    Logically, a jet, but the tank's corresponding robot mode design is much better. The tank mode itself, I don't quite like. Why downgrade from a fast, versatile, equally powerful jet to a slow, sluggish tank?

    I dunno... the idea of Vader turning into his own lightsaber strikes me as being awesome.

    Erm, most tanks these days can go over 50mph, so its definately not slow, and have you seen the size of the 'boosters' at the back of the design? Even if Megs can't fly anymore, he'll sure as hell be able to jump things ala the batman tumbler...
