    At least know we kinda know why he hasnt been doing anything-he doesnt trust Starscream, so he's been watching him, waiting to see what he does, which is,I think, a good idea. had he been doing things, Starscream could have messed up his plans. I can't wait to see where this goes now.

    Anyone else reeeeeally enjoy this Megatron?

    I like him, but I wish someone would fix his eyes, 'cause I haven't been able to take him seriously since the first episode when he has constant <_> faces.

    Well, he is insane. And the rest of his face is pretty messed up, from his teeth to his lips having been withered away (or chewed away). It'd be out of character for his eyes to be normal. ;)

    He's pretty good.

    If he watches Starscream its save to assume that he watches everyone else.

    But will see in the future episodes.

    This Megatron is awesome alright. He started a bit slow in Darkness Rising being just the usual "crazy Megatron", but episodes since Sick Mind show just why he's boss.

    He's still crazy? Yes he is, but he is also smart and powerful to the point where his insanity isn't a setback, it just makes him all the more dangerous, he's somehow in control of his own craziness.

    Plus his design is my favorite Megatron design ever. It just clicks right on all the notes of what defines Megatron to me, he just looks powerful no matter the angle.

    This is my favorite Megatron to date: He's the veteran overlord, that villain who's been around since before we were born and likely will still be around after your death, the ultimate ancient evil who is haunts humanity.

    And I also like how he is completely BAT-SHIT-INSANE. I mean, REALLY BAD-SHIT-INSANE.

    And it's not "Joker-like-insanity" [I.e having a psychotically dark sense of humour], this guy is downright deranged.

    He's not Beast Wars or Animated Megatron but he's a fine take on the big tyrant.

    I like the Derp Crazy take, I wonder if he likes Pinkie Pie's cupcakes.........

    I love him. Especially his latest moment with Jack in the newest episode. I think his eyes make him look so menacing. It works great.

    The lazy "derp" eye revelation ruined it for me.

    Epsiode 19 aside (haven't watched it yet), I like Megatron, but I think his inactivity could be shifted a little. Have him be pouring over information and schematics and talking to Soundwave, so its obvius he's doing SOMETHING, but we don't know what.

    I'm loving this Megatron so far, he's easily my favorite incarnation of the character alongside the Animated version. Frank Welker's performance has been absolutely fantastic and an awesomely menacing update of his G1 voice. I hope Megatron starts becoming a more regular character, especially after this last episode. He's quickly become one of the major highlights of the show for me.

    I do believe that was Soundwave who’s been watching Starscream and reporting back to Megatron.

    I don’t think he’s insane. I think the brief bit of insanity we saw in the begging was a byproduct of his contact to Dark Energon. Statscream, too, was a bit over the top when his paranoia and Dark Energon finally came face to face.

    Now that Dark Energon is no longer at play, we’re seeing a very different Megatron and a scheming Starscream, though one with a huge dose of paranoia now.

    Megatron’s face reminds me of Darth Vaders, which was designed after a skull sitting under a Kabuto, which looks scary on Megatron, as his face is a lot more articulate than Vader’s.
