    Long before the Transformers went to Nebulos and met aliens that conveniently turned into engines, heads, and of course, guns. There was Megatron. He did the whole turning into a gun-thing before it was cool.
    So my question is: If Megatron hadn't been reformatted into Galvatron by the time season 3 had rolled around, how do you think he'd work with the Targetmaster technology? Maybe his Nebulan partner wouldn't transform and instead just stand there firing Megatron.

    Interesting.....Or maybe his Targetmaster would've been a mini-me.

    His Targetmaster would've transformed into his scope/cannon.

    Maybe it could transform into that silver gun thing that comes with Megatron

    Megatron wouldn't have a targetmaster because he detested all flesh creatures, regardless of whether he was a cold, calculating Walter P 38 or an insane alien inspired laser cannon.

    Megatron would have had Minitron as a Targetmaster, who is a mini megatron, so Megatron would have been firing himself. But then Megatron would have been Starscream's (remember, no galv = no deadscream) targetmaster.

    So Starscream would have been a Targetmaster Targetmaster (Because minitron would clip underneath the barrel of megatron for the whole effect you dig).

    Megatron would BE the Targetmaster......I guess Starscream would still be the shooter.

    Megatron would never have a targetmaster/headmaster companion. Megatron works alone.

    I like where your head's at hypothetically.

    I have no idea, but I'm guessing DiF is on it.

    why does it have to be mini? a exact duplicate megatron can still mass shift itself to be fired by the other megatron in robot mode. Like how the junkions worked between their motorcycle and riderbot system in the movie.

    under the strictest sense of finding the target. Yes. But His hands are free for extra weaponry do to his scope/cannon being arm mounted. He can still use a true targetmaster beyond the main blaster.

    I'd assign megatron the targetmaster partner "Fracas" (targetmaster scourges weapon) because it seems the most lethal of the decepticon nebulon partners while the others like misfire and triggerhappy are to unreliable to be used by a cruel supreme leader.

    By your thinking if Megatron's Targetmaster partner was an exact full size duplicate then it would be Megaplex. Now, that would be an interesting concept!

    Knowing Megatron, he'd try and make Unicron HIS target master.

    I just can't see a Targetmaster Megatron; However Powermaster Megatron that has a dark matter weapons system and tranforms into a missile base sounds more like it, with a humanized version of Unicron being his partner.

    Megatron as a Targetmaster. Yea, that little nugget of thought dawned on me about...ten years ago I think. Thank you for reminding me of that. :)

    This should have been used in the UK series, when Galvatron went back in time and teamed up with Megatron. I'd love to wield my younger self. He'd make a good wingman.

    Megatron Targetmaster?

    You know, why stop at Megatron? Sixshot and the other six-changers could all turn into guns and be fired by other Transformers too. Also, Shockwave could probably be fired by any of the combiners or the giant guys such as Trypticon or Metroplex.

    Actually now that you mentioned it, I recall Shockwave was used (unwillingly) by Bruticus in the G1 cartoon - "Revenge of Bruticus", if I remembered correctly of course! XD
