    So i was thinking what if Megatron got a new alt mode in season 2 of TFP?
    what would you want him to be , personally the DOTM Mack tanker truck was an awesome design and id love to see some kind of homage to that in TFP :) 
    post all your input and ideas, they are quite are welcome ;)

    I'm quite happy with the vehicle he has now, but if he changed, I'd love to see him as a tank like in War for Cybertron or Revenge of the Fallen.

    As much as I always champion the idea of Megatron being a tank, it's more of a retro-fit G1 update that I mean. In this series, should he get an Earth mode finally, I see no reason whatsoever to have him relegated to a slow moving land vehicle in place of an air dominating aircraft that moves ten times as fast, stays out of the reach from the Autobots, and is the very kind of alt mode (one that flies) that most Cons in this series view as superior compared to anything with tires.

    Either a tank or a missile carrier truck.

    I wish to veto the DotM truck. Yuk.

    And I throw my vote to a WFC-esque tank. Just don't make his head visible on it please... Were it not for that I would be more appeased with his current jet mode.

    I'm happy with him being a Cybertronian jet so far. He pulls it off way better than in the 2007 live action movie. However if he does change alt modes I would like to see something similer to what the IDW Ongoing Shadowblade Megatron looks complete with a Stealth jet mode!:)

    Anything that isn't a tank.

    I'd like to see him take the DOTM Form, AFTER getting the shit beaten out of him (one arm broken off, head half-melted, both legs damaged beyond repair), and have a few episodes where he's crippled, and takes the earth mode for disguise.

    Whatever it is it has to fly. I loved the scene of him shooting the Unicrons in jet mode.

    I agree. The best Earth alt mode for TF Prime Megatron would be something along the lines of a mix between Skyquake's jet mode and IDW Megatron's current "Shadow Blade" steath bomber/fighter form.

    I like a jet mode for Megatron.

    If he had to change than I would like to see him as a missile launcher.

    That actually sounds pretty cool, but I have to wonder. If a Cybertronian is crippled, can they move via alt mode?

    Either some type of stealth jet or something like Animated Megatron had.

    Presumably he limps back to Knock Out and then gets fixed bit-by-bit.

    Probably not, since enough damage to their robot modes and they might not be able to transform. Tear Optimus's leg off, for example, and he can't transform, because half of his truck mode wheels are on that leg.

    I hope he retains his current alt-mode for at least a little while longer. If he has to get a new alt-mode, something similar to a B2 would be great. That way he can retain his flight capability.
