    The arm-cannon and flail for me. He needed to use that claw more often and the lupara seemed too weird for a robot who classically has his gun built-on (Optimus might have torn his hand off and shot him and Sentinel with it, which would have been more fitting than an axe in the head).

    The Murder arm. It was most effective. That massive double armed cannon must be awkward to use, and the flail could have risk of being simply sliced off. The Shotgun was cool, but seemed a bit generic. Not to mention, the murder arm was super cool looking.

    The Lobster cannon, as long as it isn't the Leader Class variant.

    As much as I like the "Hobo Shotgun", I have to go with the lobster cannon.

    Megatron's first fusion cannon. The execution and result was just so unique and alien and amazing. The flail also gave Megatron a warlord-type aura. The murder arm was cool, but it didn't really appeal to me. The shotgun I loved because it seemed right given Megatron's condition.

    The shotgun was awesome, but the murder arm was much more appropriate for Megatron.

    The murder arm proved to be the most effective weapon of the three. You have a gun AND blade in one package allowing for Ranged AND melee combat. Additionally the Fusion Cannon portion was still usable even when the balde is deployed.
    All in all it's the best suited weapon for Megatron when on the battlefield where you need to be able to act quickly to a large varity of situations.

    His first weapon requred his two arms to be bought together, making it impratical as it required time to deploy.

    And the Shotgun wasn't actully built-in to Megatron and thus could be easily lost.

    ROTF Death Lock Pinser. He didn't have to worry about dropping it and one arm makes it easy to maneuver. He had one claw that could be used as a weapon and cold extend a more elegant blade when necessary. He also had one gun in it that had several settings. It had a weak but rapid machine gun setting but also could charge up a big blast that, while wasn't quit as powerful as in TF1, was very powerful and could send Optimus flying.

    While he had a normal cannon in TF1, Megatrons main weapon, then ,was his fusion cannon which seemed too inconvenient. He had to slowly combine both arms, resulting in less maneuverability. Also, while a flail is a nice call back to G1 and looks cooler than a blade, it's, like the cannon, less maneuverable.

    The shot gun in DOTM was the worst of the three. Too Earth like and the effect didn't look as good. It also could be dropped as it was hand held. Also, no close combat weapon.

    The mace/flail was awesome, and seeing Megatron blast Optimus across a city on the big screen was amazing.

    I prefer his murder arm from ROTF.
    The sniper rifle from the first movie was just not Megatron like. The shot gun was cool. Though the murder arm does it for me.

    Death-Lock Pincer for sure! the flail and two arm Fusion Cannon were cool, as well as the shotgun, but that was just too cool and really fit Megatron.
