    ok I asked this several times in the other threads about this promo commerical but it went ignored so thats why I'm starting a new thread.

    I can't see Megatron having a new arm, where are people seeing this?
    Someone posted a pic of a freeze frame of KO working on Megatron and nearby in a tube is an arm with what people think is a gauntlet on it,
    BUT
    look at the arm in the tube, look at the fingers, it looks like Optimus Primes fingers

    Interesting, but it's too blurry for me to tell anything yet.

    Maybe Nemesis Prime? Probably a gift from Silas to aid/upgrade Megatron in exchange for Con membership?

    Honestly, I think it looks like it's made out of Dreadwing parts :(

    Yup, because Dreadwing has purple arms with Optimus fingers.

    maybe megatron has a special arm made so he can use that hammer? and make weapons to counter that sword prime had? could be the star saber as in THE star saber with a matrix hilt and all. so lets wait and see.

    Well those are valid points, but the purple could be a blue due to the quality of the footage, and the whole thing looks a whole lot more like parts of Dreadwing than Optimus (besides the hand). Now that I think about it though, I suspect that it's just some kind of a gaunlet from a relic.

    i dont think the red at the wrist is part of the arm- i think maybe its a logo/image painted onto the outside of the container the arm is sitting in. (it looks like a gear or cog or something)

    Also- Optimus doesnt have red ligaments things in his knuckle joints. So i dont think its actually Optimus's hand


    maybe a nemesis prime arm- but A) The US military handled the cleanup after Nemesis fell on Silas IIRC, so it would likely have to be a NEW arm modeled after the nemesis construct-- and B) you think Megatron would REALLY allow a human built Nemesis arm to be installed on his body- i sort of doubt it.



    I think Optimus is going to cut off Megatrons arm (maybe with the two handed star saber looking thing), the cons are going to retreat with Megs, and then megs is going to get a replacement from the elbow down. Perhaps the new arm is just something Knockout has on hand, or maybe it is another Iacon relic that happens to be found around the same time Megs needs a new arm.

    Megs new arm does not seem to have a cannon, unless he's going to get a tcog required ranged weapon integrated like most of the other characters (bee, bulk, OP, arcee, starscream's null ray, etc)

    Megatron's arm could have been damaged during a fight.

    It's interesting how his arm looks different now. An upgrade, a replacement? I'm eager to find out.

    Do to the similarities the arm in the tube has to Optimus' and its darker color, it's probably Nemesis Prime's arm. Now how is that possible is another question, since the army and government supposedly moved and stored it away somewhere--but think about it...

    MECH managed to move Silas out of a pile of rubble and from under a giant robot and take him somewhere safe when the military was right outside the building and fowler was still in there with him. I don't find it completely unbelievable that they'd manage to harvest some materials from their fallen creation in that time too, especially since they were using the area as a base.

    The question is, is it that simple? MECH built a clone of Optimus, does that allow PRIME-ncessary relics to be used by anyone with his parts? Seems kinda.. out there.

    I'm pretty sure the whole "Only a Prime can use it" is a whole lot harder to get around than just swapping for a Prime-like arm.

    Megatron's new gauntlet or arm could be another Iacon relic.
