    After seeing Megatron finally getting a different Alt Mode for DOTM do you think Hasbro would consider making Megs a truck again in a different line like WFC2. Even tho some people might disagree I think it would be great since most of the designs have been Jets,Tanks,and Guns. Whata do you guys think,cool or not?

    I'd take a Megatron truck over Nemesis Primes any day.

    I've always had a soft spot for tractor trailer Transformers. It's one of the things that appealed to me about Prime. For Megatron to also be a truck? I think I warmed up to this alt mode faster than any other he's had. Otherwise, I always thought he should be a gun or large cannon. I could do for more Megatron truck goodness.

    Honestly, I really liked Megatron's tank mode in WFC. It's very plainly a tank.

    That said, it really depends on the Megatron in question's personality. I honestly feel that Megatron's truck mode doesn't mesh well with his personality, but in his situation, it really fits. He's run down, beaten up, and desperate, and this shows through in his Mad Max-esque form.

    Trukk not gun? I'd like a truck mode if it's pulled off well and not like a Prime clone.

    Megatron should be a tank or some other sort of weapon/military vehicle.

    Let's at least keep with the spirit of the original, where Decepticons were things that kids would be unfamiliar and most likely afraid of - i.e., guns (in Megatron's case). Obviously, thanks to toy laws, he'll never be a gun again (unless he's dayglo colored) - but I really disagree that he should be a truck. His alt-mode should strike fear into anyone by its very nature.

    I think Megatron works best as a tank. Anything else just doesn't feel right.

    I think Megs works best as a tank or some type of artillery. I don't think he should have the same alternate mode as Prime. It's a different type of truck but it's still a truck.

    I prefer him to be a plane or a tank personally, though Megs as a helicopter was pretty cool to. as long as its big and imposing I'm in

    I wasn't sure I'd like the concept of Megatron as a truck, but the toys are nice. He's essentially Motor Master now. The chains and tarp cape and all are cool, though.

    I think if not a gun, Megatron works best as a tank, and also I like him as a chopper like "Animated".

    I really like his DotM design, it's a nice change for Megatron.

    Plane or tank work best for me, but I'm cool with trucks. Especially after the dotm voyager.

    I think a cool throwback to that would to have his hand severed but still alive for a few moments, kinda like Frenzy in the first movie, but not as long-lived.

    Anything but a gun will work. Almost anything.

    THIS

    Although im not a mackatron hater...I would rather him be a military vehicle. One could argue that Mackatron IS a military vehicle...

    I would LOVE to see a new megatron toy that is a triple changer...Id like to see a really cool artillery piece...robot...and GUN mode...I got a soft spot for megatrons gun mode. Im telling ya...I played with him in gun mode possibly more than bot mode. Me and my buddys used to play guns in the woods..and megatron was my personal defense weapon. I never used the black parts cuz I was too afraid to loose them.

    How about the alt-mode used by Animated Ultra Magnus? It's military, and it's a little truck-like. Colour it up in grey, maybe add in a little purple...
