    I don't think it has anything to do with Bay hating him. He was playing off the injury Megs had in the 2nd movie - which was a REALLY nasty injury. Megatron was pathetic in this movie and rightly so considering his state. He was losing his mind and because of that, he was not the ruthless leader that everyone wanted him to be. I hate that he was relegated to the sidelines, but it had to be done to give Sentinel the screen time that he got.

    Ha ha, I just love how they talk about the mythology and then they say we dropped that. So it turns out they do know the mythology but somehow the mythology isn't good enough for the production team.

    Also odd that I like the concept art on Que so much better than the finished product.

    As to hating Megatron, I think it's just more of a case that Micheal Bay has never been all that skilled at crafting great film villains. Other than Transformers using names you already knew and Pearl Harbor if you know the historical characters involved can you even name another Micheal Bay villain beyond a generic like terrorist or drug dealer?

    This.
    In the first movie Megatron gets his ass handed to him by the air force and Sam, ROTF, he's the Fallens bitch, and by DOTM he's being pushed around by Sentinal.
    Bay formers Megatron is just the Charlie Brown of the movies. He's pathetic.

    Is this from the special features on the blu-ray? are there anymore, i love these behind the scenes features!!
    Interesting how they attributed non-arial transformers as a uniquely bay concept newly featured in DOTM, apparently we forgot about barricade, brawl, bonecrusher,constructions ...*sigh*

    Frankly, people like to say "Megatron was weak" in DOTM, but people fail to realize how much of a Chessmaster he was, he played the Autobots like a violin through 90% of the movie.

    It's not only brawl that counts, but brains.

    Bay hates anyone who isn't Optimus Prime or Bumblebee or Sam Witwicky.

    Did anyone else notice that they referred to Dino as "Enzo?" What's up with that?

    Enzo was one of Mirage working names

    just like Wheels was for Wheelie, (the writters from rotf reffered Wheelie as Wheels on the ROTF Commentarys), Stringer was for Sideswipe and etc

    He was in DotM. He was beat all to hell and left unrepaired from the previous movie.
    Yet this is my favorite version of the character in ANY media, going all the way back to 1984. This is the most I've ever liked Megatron. Because this movie showed how tenacious he was in the face of increasingly impossible odds. No matter how badly he was beaten or how unlikely his own personal survival seemed, he never abandoned his goal of saving Cybertron.

    Not pathetic as an insult, but have him be pathetic as in a fallen leader or something like that.

    He was at the end of ROTF. They wanted to make the audience know Megatron was in bad shape, and whatever he had planned he wasn't doing by himself. Hence the patchwork, ravaged form and the cloak hiding his scars.

    And yet he still took Sentinel to school. If he had a titch faster reflexes who knows if Optimus would have killed him.

    I think they meant they were moving completely away from that. There's always been non-arial 'Cons before, but outside Starscream there's no flying Decepticons. (that we see)
