    ok, so we know Megatron is trying to rebuild himself. He used the Dinobots as prototypes for his new body (or for testing stuff, he explained it to Sumdac), he used Nanosec to try to get materials to build a new body, and created Soundwave to make himself a new body. Now, in about 3 weeks, there's the 2part Season 1 Finale (i think) called Megatron Rising, and it is rather obvious that he will have a new body in it. But Megatron and Sumdac have had no luck rebuilding him-i mean, he's still a severed head for Spark's sake, and Headmaster and Nature Calls (the 2 episodes left) dont really seem like they will have much to do with Megatron's return-how the heck is he gonna get a body? any ideas? also :useless  so lets find some, preferably leaked screen shots or something, just so we can get a feel for what he'll look like.

    Did you miss Toyfair? We've all seen his new body, also, see sig. ;) 

    As for how he gets it, it'll be that damn key for sure, the vision in Lost and Found seems to indicate as much.

    Edit: Lots of pics here of his new look: http://toyfair08.asmzine.com/gallery/hasbro/transformers-animated/slides/IMG_9085.html

    Also, funny you should make this thread today, I was thinking earlier about an animation clip that Hasbro posted by mistake on their site which showed his transformation. I know it's on youtube somewhere but I couldn't find it.

    Unicron's spark fuses with Bulkhead to creater "The One" and his design is homage to Galactus.

    that's Headmaster. wait a week, watch the new episode-its his premiere. then it will hopefully make sense.

    but really, i dont really understand how Megatron will be able to design is new robotic body. im still curious as to how this will work out.

    According to somebody from the Allspark that got to watch the episode already, in the episode all Decepticons finally unite so one of 'em probably donates destronium/gets the key for Megatron.

    Just stumbled upon the animated Megatron transformation on YouTube and it doesn't tell us anything we didn't know already.
    (I don't want to link to it if there's been any hoo-ha before but trust me it is rather findable.)

    SPOILER BELOW - BEWARE YE WHO SCROLLS DOWN & ETC.

    Megatron is a futuristic helicopter with two sets of blades. He's grey, red and black. He transforms in to a robot. No, really.


    I would imagine, given Megatron Rising is in two parts, that part one is 22 minutes explaining how Megatron 'rises', and that part two is 21 minutes of him being in a foul and violent mood with most things around him, and (SPOILER HERE ->) one minute of Sari fixing things with her key, probably.

    its not a futuristic helicopter-not really anyways-it seems to be an osprey helicopter, which is a helicopterplane mix. there was one like it in the Transformers 2007-in the opening scene.

    From what I've seen of his design, he doesn't seem to be similar to an Osprey, as his rotors don't tilt down. He's more than likely just a regular attack helicopter with dual rotors (very similar to the old Mil Mi-12). His cockpit design even loosely resembles another Mil helo, the Mi-28.

    Now that I look at the toy again, judging by the way his arms transform into what resemble jet engines, he may even be some form of autogyro/helicopter similar to the Ka-22.

    Depends on what the key does to the unused parts.

    At first glance it also reminded me of the modified Hind from Avalon, though finding the linked pic showed me it's not actually that similar apart from the two rotors thing.

    I have a feeling that Megatron's reanimation may go something like this:

    -Starscream and his two-mech army managed to obtain the key/Allspark.
    -Lugnut then mutinies (because he only agreed to swear loyalty to Starscream to get repaired), steals the key/Allspark, and crashes his way to Megatron.
    -The key/Allspark doesn't do anything, because there aren't enough parts scattered around Sumdac's lab to give Megatron a new body.
    -Lugnut steals Megatron's remains and takes them to the airfield where he and Blitzwing got their alt modes. Despite the Autobot's efforts to drive him off, Lugnut manages to use the key/Allspark to fuse Megatron's head to one of the aircraft, and thus give him a new body AND an Earth alt mode.
    -They then proceed to flatten the Autobots, ending the first part of 'Megatron Rising'.

    Megatron and Sari have a human robotic child. The child rebels and renames itself Megatron, eats a bunch of babies, and then reveals himself to be a pretender, because Donny Osmond jumps out and starts singing various "The Osmonds" hits.

    I think in between these episodes megatrons body was being built, maybe by he time megatrons rising will air his body will be complete. thats what i think, I could be wrong.

    It is the "Season Finale" but per the schedule that's been put out, Season 2 starts the following week.
