    I thought the Transformations represented their personality yet Megatron's doesn't feel... well, Megatrony. I does flips when he transforms into robot mode which in my opinion doesn't suit him.

    HMS put effort into Optimus' transformation because he had a new model but why not Megatron? Optimus looks so powerful when he transforms (reminiscent to me of Primal) but Megatron us just so-so.

    What do you all think?

    I'm not a fan of any part of his design. How is he supposed to bend his stomach/ chest region? His torso is a solid glowy brick.

    Don't care much for FOC's take on Prime either. What happened to the awesome designs Meggs and Prime had in WFC?

    Am I the only one who misses the individual pieces moving into place when transforming in, and out of vehicle mode in WFC? Now all we have is you see a cool flip, or spin and BAM! They're in vehicle mode, or are back in robot mode. WFC still had very fast transformations, but you could still see, and here the metal pieces clicking into place.

    They've always been the worst kind of cheaty. Limbs made of certain parts of the vehicle show up before that part of the vehicle is finished shrinking away, parts wind up in completely different locations depending on which mode you're going into/out of. Craziness for fans of transformation mechanics.

    I'm not saying that every character doesn't have a few parts moving here, and there... But do you recall Brawl's transformation? That's what I miss from WFC, every character there had visible moving parts, and it just felt more advanced and alien. Rather than just doing an awesome flip, or twirl, and instantly you're in robot/vehicle mode. This is just me nitpicking though.

    To be honest I just hate Megatron's design in FOC all together. They just went overkill on all the glowy purple and spikes.
    His WFC represented him perfectly and they even tease us with it by him having it at the start of the game.

    I think they're all fine. You either love them, or you hate them. I guarantee they're staying that way so get used to it sisters.

    IMO they're all awesome except for Warpath and the DLC guys.

    The thing we should be complaining about is their messed up designs. Look at Deadend, or Silverbolt. They just look plain off.

    I think what everyone really hates is that Megatron look G1y and now he doesn't. He looks more Prime.

    If you look at ROTF, all the transformations were cool and unique.

    i tend to agree.

    also I hate how so many of the transformations look similar with a minor tweak or whatever

    also I thought the original designs of Megs and Optimus were better than the current ones. (Prime's neck looks kinda weird)

    You have a point there, but i am still fine with the transformations, however it would have been cool for megs to do like a leap forward when coming out of tank mode and perceptor to do like a bowing animation in and out

    They made Warpath's cannon come out of nowhere, now, instead of making it visibly pop out of his chest.

    ... in retrospect, as I have been using the Insecticon skins as a Scientist, I enjoy their transformations/ animations quite a bit.

    they're almost Triple-Changerish

    His whole new design disappointed me...until I saw some gameplay footage. He still retains his badass personality I see.
