    Tech Spec - This is Megastorm's new form, powered up under the influence of evil Angolmois energy. He transforms in three stages, from destroying dinosaur to monolithic base to attack fortress. His audacious offensives, making use of his tremendous power, force the Cybertrons into tight spots again and again. He is on the verge of no longer considering Galvatron his older brother, and the danger of a split in the camp now looms large. The Gigahorn on his head is harder than diamond, and can pierce through all manner of things.

    Cartoon / Movie -
    Megastorm is the Predacon Duke of Destruction and younger brother to Galvatron, the Emperor of Destruction. He believes in being realistic and conservative when it comes to goals and strategy and hence tends to have a rather different veiwpoint than his more bold and wreckless older brother. Finally when Galvatron began his audacious quest for the Angolmois energy the differences between them became too great and Megastorm began to consider how he could seize the reigns of command and stear them back towards sanity. Galvatron is well aware of his younger sibling's attempts at treachery, but looks the otherway purely out of brotherly love. Megastorm can transform into a tank. He is later upgraded by angolmois into Gigastorm, a giant mechanical Hojoni, which gave him a base mode and a battle station mode, along with a Gigascouter drone. His personality was likewise magnified to drive out all compassion, weakness, and doubt. The upgrade included an enlarged title as Arch-Duke of Destruction.

    Great stuff :) 

    Rather than mentioning the G1 appearances, we'll put a note on his page that links to the Trypticon page as they're the same basic toy. Keeps things simple that way :)
