    hey guys! i need help here. i need a deluxe class megatron with a modern look to be with my deluxe decepticon display(seekers most of them). pretty much a classic display but updated.

    i'm thinking of the following options:
    battle in space tank megs
    universe galvatron (head to be swapped)

    any other deluxe tanks out there that can fit?

    thanks in advance!

    If you don't mind alien tanks, I recommend WFC megatron.

    I definitely do not recommend universe galvatron.

    WFC Megatron is a really good figure, IMO.

    I'd also recommend WfC Megs, or the Universe redeco of Classics Megs if you don't mind the lack of right hand.

    battle in space Megatron? Battle in space set included only Hot rod and Cyclonus. I suppose that you meant Challenge at Cybertron. Which, by all means, is perfectly normal to be confused, by the way.
    I can think of:
    - War for Cybertron Megatron. Also, look here for a comparison with the United release.
    - Classics DVD Megatron (although he doesn't seem to be very popular) or his incoming United repaint homaging the G2 hero version.

    Those are really the only ones I can recommend you. There are the 2 Titanium versions of him, but those are even less popular...

    hmm so universe galvatron is out on the selections.
    WFC megs is nice but he is on my wfc display. if ever i manage to find one, with your suggestions, i'd definitely consider!

    @sanchimaru oh yea! i totally forgot, it was "the ultimate battle" 2 pack with OP, i got confused with the set name.

    i will look for those titanium versions.

    thanks for the help guys!

    There's the Universe Special Edition Megatron, which is the Classics tank mold in a more G1 deco.

    I'm partial to Henkei Megatron, myself.

    United Megatron is my 'definitive' Megs in my classics display, but if you are insistent on a deluxe mold then I can't really look further than the WFC version.

    If you're not going to go with WfC, then I think your only real choice is Classics Deluxe Megatron or one of his redecos. Probably the Special Edition, in G1 Colors, since the other two decos are meant to be G2.

    War for Cybertron. Great figure. He was my Megatron until I got the United voyager Megatron.

    Same here, wfc was my classics megs untill I got united megs. If you have the extra $$$ I would get the united megatron. Totally worth it, and the paint scheme is pure g1.

    He wants a deluxe.

    I'm not sure if it is big enough but there's an oversized KO version of the targetroids Megatron. At least the bot mode looks good.

    for deluxe? darkside wfc megs looks really close to the current comic version and looks so much nicer than the standard deco.

    Not sure if it's "modern" enough, but the combat hero Megatron (purple tank who's like a large deluxe) works well as leader of my baddies, especially now that I've given him a smaller shoulder cannon.

    Get that three pack from TRU right now with the slightly more purple WFC Megs. Problem solved.
