    Should Megatron have his Fusion Cannon on his arm in the next movie? "That is if he is in the next movie."

    Yes, most definitely he should have his arm cannon.

    Also, please make his left arm a twig.

    No, this Megatron needs no guns just his hands to kill badassly, alot better than the outdated garbage old man from G1.

    An arm cannon on Megatron is a must. It's part of his character. Everyone wants more characterization right?

    You're right. Megatron's twig hands are lethal weapons in and of themselves. His badasseryness alone would enable him to kill the Autobots by just looking at them. Gammers G1 Meggy wouldn't stand a chance against the all powerful Twig-power Uber-bot "I am teh roxors cuz me is newer" Movie Megatron.

    He should have had it in the first one. But Megatron's dead now, so it matters little.

    Ha! Well at least the old man Megatron had body armor, and could hold his against humans.

    They just don't make 'em like they used to, I guess. Haha!

    Totally 100% yes.

    The arm cannon brings that extra something to the character. While a peace loving Autobot has to form their weapon Megatron should be the type that always has a weapon ready. Just more of the heavy handed tyrant if he can shot you at any time he wants instead of giving a bit of warning with having to form a weapon.

    Doesn't even have to be an exact G1 style arm cannon because we've gotten tank mode Megatrons and T-Rex Megatron's that had an arm cannons so it's not like they could not work one into the movie if they wanted to. Of course in the silly war over the movie people only think G1 or movie, but we've got other incarnations to support the idea that a nice big arm cannon that gets to fire this time around would be something cool for the movie universe.

    Yeah I could go for an arm cannon this time around, I loved the double arm combined cannon in the first movie though.

    They all have arm cannons though. I'm not wanting it for the sake of having it.

    He doesn't really need an arm cannon? You all forget just how powerful he was in the first movie, the fact that jazz was unable to use his blasters let alone his strength against megatron proved that megatron is extremely powerful.

    Prime was pretty lucky that those raptors shot down on him, otherwise the autobots would have lost without a doubt.

    And somewhat megatron had his arm cannon...well sort of, his fusion cannon was the replacement for his arm cannon...obviously

    Plenty of Megatrons in the TF multiverse have been without an arm cannon - is it really important either way if this incarnation does or not?

    Agreed.

    Movie Megatron is fine without an arm cannon. In fact, he would look kinda distorted with one (unless you counted the cannon he used in TF1, which is the same thing that his toy used. I had no problem with that one).

    Personally, I don't think there needs to be homages all over the place. I like original stuff within the TF universe to surface.
