    Does anyone here hate the humans in the doubleparter Megatron's Master Plan because I do especially that waste of space Sean Berger. I also hate humanity in the X-Men as they are sometimes the antagonists to the heroes.

    Despite the plot of MMP being absolutely childish beyond reason, it still ranks has one of the most memorable episodes of G1 for me.

    Though I think it plays on human's ability to fear, mistrust, and turn on a dime against thier allies perfectly.

    If you hated Sean Berger I guess the writers did their job then.

    I dunno, anybody who has the gahones to tell Unicron "I belong to nobody!" has my respect. (Even though he caved in once Unicron was gonna eat him.) That whole scene with Unicron has always summed up Megatron's character for me and made me love him as a villain.

    If you want to complain about something in that episode, how about you complain about how Starscream was able to fight against himself dressed as Optimus Prime.

    And what's the deal with the decepticons? Didn't anyone ever tell them hitting people, breaking stuff, and stealing was bad?

    They are not very nice guys.

    The premise is a really good one actually, the Autobots go to great pains to hide themselves in some series (Armada, Cybertron, the Movie, RiD possibly) and in series like those, the Decepticons can discredit the Autobots by playing on humanity's fear of the unknown. The execution was not the best, but the idea behind it is sound. In one of those aforementioned series, if the Decepticons had made first contact and lied about their intentions, they could easily have turned the humans against the Autobots - and the Autobots wouldn't bother fighting back out of fear of hurting the humans.

    Yeah I thought that was cool. And the scene where Galvatron tries to become Unicrons master

    G1 Megs rules, now all he does is talk talk talk

    I have trouble respecting a robot like G1 Megs who got shot once and fell over defeated. Or succumbed to rust. But atleast his toy was funny.

    He should've killed all the humans when he had the chance after the Autobots were sent to the sun.

    This the same advanced space bacteria rust that was pretty much dissolving the body of any Transformer who was infected?

    BW Megatron was defeated by one of Rhinox's farts. Even Skeletor's dumber moments rank as more honorable, and he often defeated himself.

    "Toy was funny?" At least back then, Takara was able to brilliantly engineer a few gun robots that could transform into reasonable humanoid forms and still look like actual production handguns(Megatron, Browning, S&W .44), rather than making them look like Flash Gordon rayguns(Shockwave, Go-Bots guns).

    The '86 movie G1 Megatron is the epitome of Megatron IMO...the caroon series Megs suffered from '80's cartoon villain syndrome'...it was wild crazy scheme once second, giant doomsday device the next, then retreat. In the first 15 minutes of the movie Megatron had ordered (and contributed to) the brutal slaughtering of half the season 1 Autobot cast, not to mention taken over Cybertron at some point prior to those events. The only two instances any Megatron has gotten a 'Holy shit this guy is a threat' reaction from me is in both the 86 and 07 movies.

    Sorry, didn't mean to help derail the thread...uhm...on topic: Humans suck ass!

    So funny and good point! Also BW Megatron had a rubber ducky which loses credibility points as well though adds to the humor. I actually respect a lot of different incarnations of Megatron (though there a couple of people who try to bash G1 which I don't get) but G1 Megatron to me was the one I took the most seriously like in these episodes. The episode's premise was a good one and I liked how the Autobots were discredited and humanity turned on them INSTANTLY. They even threw a parade for the Decepticons! Kind of showed real gratitude huh? I also liked how ruthless Megatron was in trying to send all the Autobots into the sun thus killing them all. Imagine being discredited, forced to leave, and then being sent into the sun while basically being helpless because of your ideals. Interesting stuff in that Megatron beats the Autobots using their own code against them.

    It was still silly, but that's like, the funniest part of G1.:lol  It's rediculousness.

    I like to think of '86 Movie Megs as a totally different Megs. He was a loser goofball in the G1 series but an utter badass mortal-combater in the film.

    Was this the episode in which Ramjet crashed into the buildings? Man, after 9/11, I never thought I'd see that again. Then I realized, it happened again in the '07 movie. Megs & Prime went straight through the building. I figured that people are so easily offended, they wouldn't dare put that in.

    I'm surprised that nobody's started crying over that one yet. Though to tell you the truth I never made any connection with 9/11 when I saw that. :dunce
