    ok, i have noticed something about op and megs that kinda bugs me. in vehicle mode their both roughly the same size truck (when you account op's trailer) but, in robot mode, op just has the cab, while megatron has the WHOLE F**KING TRUCK. and their the same height. how the hell is that possible? comments?

    Megatron is much fatter than optimus, Optimus is pretty lanky, a lot of his mass goes into limbs and height. Megs spreads it out much more evenly. Hs chest is basically a massive barrel. I presume the oil tank is empty space, so there's not that much extra mass to find a room for. It's possible it just went into adding bulk.

    still. optimus uses just the semi cab and meg(s) uses the whole truck. but yeah i guess that does explain it.

    Megatron simply has more armour, Optimus does not.

    Simple as that!

    Furthermore, he probably chose the oil tank because he'd have to carry a significant amount of food for the hatch-lings. They are are in the middle of the desert after all.

    Well, he wasn't exactly on top form at this point - mentally or physically. Too weak to maintain a flight mode or fusion cannon, severe head damage and no strength or willpower to really fight. He basically gives up, and doesn't put up much resistance to Prime at the end - the days of TF1's savage one sided fights are long gone. I don't think he's weaker because of his altmode so much as he's got a battered, rusty, chunky altmode because he's so much weaker.

    TF the Voyager toy and your questions are answered. What REALLY demands an answer is why there was no game of Chicken between Optimus and Megatron in Vehicle Mode?!??!?!??
