    I have read a rumor on the message board of the official movie website and says Megatron will scan a Abrams type tank. He alledge to seen the sketches and desings. I know some will say it's referring to Brawl but I lloked to Brawls vehicle mode and the Abrams tank alledge to be for Megatron to scan. The difference between the two lays in the turrets design an the back of the vehicle. See the rumor yourselfhttp://boards.transformersmovie.com/showthread.php?t=7207

    Brawl's tank mode....

    Read that thread again; you'll likely see it repeated here. The rumor was raised and summarily debunked. There's no real "allegations" or claims of legitimacy in the link you posted; mostly more "I think that Megatron MIGHT be a..." etc.

    WWMegatron, it's just a rumor. The customized abrams used for Brawl is the only tank reported as present during the shooting of the battle scene. The only abrams Megatron design we've seen around was a toy color scheme one, confirmed to be a fake during botcon 06. So it's extremely unlikely Megs is different from the alien version seen around these days.

    You DO realize that Brawl's prop vehicle is essentially a modified M1A1 Abrams tank prop with alot of crap bolted onto the outside of it?

    Megatron is apparently some aircraft called the "razor".

    Tanks don't have wings, so...

    Brawl's tank mode is a slightly modified version of the tank seen in xXx 2 during the aircraft carrier scene. And that tank is just a modified version of the M1A1 Abrams as that is the most common and advanced tank the US military uses. It was originally 'upgraded' to make it look more futuristic and upgraded further in this film to make it more menacing.

    Also, there is *no* Razor, that was Shia not knowing what the hell he was talking about. Megs is an alien jet, we've seen a small leaked image of it when his design first came out.

    Maybe we should have a big stickied post saying 'Megatron is not a tank!' and 'There is no such plane as the Razor!' It seems we get a new post about these two every day. :D

    Nono, you're probably thinking of the new cellphone Transformer, which changes into a Motorola RAZR.

    A Bay forum admin confirmed the Razor thing was an error, he was actually talking about Starscream's Raptor mode.

    i heard a rumour that megatron will be a longnose truck with flames down the sides, and a truck like that was seen present on the film set so IT MUST BE TRUE
