    We've seen the alien Jet in TF1 (my fave) and the Tank/Jet in ROTF, what possibly could be stored for us in DOTM that could match his hiearchy?

    As vicious and evil as he his I hope he's able to transform into both this time.

    Wait, I thought Megs will turn into some sort of military truck.

    I think with Megatron getting thoroughly trounced and visibly shooken in the last movie, he might chose a more earthly form as a disguise. Visually standing out in his alt-mode hasn't seemed to help him very much except to run away.

    It's rumored that he's the green truck.

    As much as I love the jet and tank designs, it would be kinda nice to see him as something new

    I'm thinking something new.

    Might fit the story to have an Earth mode this time. First movie he was just unfrozen so no chance of an Earth mode. Second movie he was out of the picture until he was brought back to life so not much need for an Earth mode. But Megatron was active at the end of the third movie so where on Earth could he stay for the years that seem to happen between each film?

    A win for the designer because they get another shot with the character if he gets an Earth mode.

    A win for Hasbro because a new alt mode means that fans of movie Megatron are going to have to buy at least one new movie Megatron figure.

    I hope he turns out to be that evil as fuck Tanker. It would make the Optimus/Megatron fight that much better if it started out with a head-on collision.

    I liked his flying hamburger tank mode, but if they wanted to give him yet another body the sorry state Jet Prime left him in last movie is certainly a valid excuse for him upgrading.

    Something new. Megatron has been hiding out on Earth for a few years now, and even though he thinks Earth modes are beneath him, he probably needs one now more than ever.

    Also, perhaps he retains the tank mode and jet mode, but reformatted so he can be a believable triple changer?

    This is still speculation until I'm proven wrong when I watch DOTM. Although, an old Tank is a neat design but not for Megatron.

    I remember some were saying it could be WreckGar and that would be awesome, but Megatron in it? Well, if it is, (even if it's still a rumor) the old Truck as Megs hasn't grown on me yet.:)

    You can bet on Megatron getting a new altmode for the new film. It's a surefire way of selling more toys.

    That being said, though, the tanker truck being Megatron would be lame as all hell. I'd rather that be Motormaster or Scourge.

    Yeah, I heard that a while ago, and I hope it's true, but...

    I agree it would be a bitchin' Motormaster, but instead of Scourge, I'd prefer even Onslaught as a probable candidate.

    Megatron needs an Earth mode, especially now that the entire world knows about the TFs. It would be a better disguise than an alien tank, but, I hope he's not the truck. That just doesn't seem to fit him.

    didn't megatron go with starscream and flew away from earth back where the fallen was. If megatron is the tanktruck he could be huge well past 45 ft. It would not surprise me if he had 2 alternative modes, 1 where he could fly but shape shift into an earth mode because he will not abandon his ability to fly. He probably learnt his lessons of how unbalanced he was in ROTF, and get a new mode where he could do what he did in the first film

    Much like speculation Sentinel Prime is the fire truck, Hod Rod is the Ferrari and the Mercedes is Wheeljack, it is speculation Megatron is the fuel truck.

    We wont know for sure till toys show up. Hasbro is becoming better at clamping prototypes.
