    Something I've wondered, Is G1 Meg Chrome and shiny or gunmetal and dull?

    Admittedly Chrome is polished, reflective and bright, but makes terrible camoflage, (although on Cybertron this could be a plus, we don't really know). But HEY he's Megatron what does he care? He's the leader of the Decepticons and he can be as shiny as he wants.

    Gunmetal, He's the roughest, toughest, most ruthless of all Decepticons, (and that's saying a lot) he doesn't have time for niceties like polishing and buffing. sure if he was shiny he could blind his opponents but he'd rather tear out your optics first.

    The better versions of the toy had a combination of chrome and gunmetal. In the comics and cartoon, he's generally bright white, which I take as a quick and cheap representation of chrome, since gunmetal would translate to a flat gray.

    Black and Chrome with red inserts and highlights!

    Optimus Prime thinks he's badass wandering onto the battlefield with his name across his trailer. Megatron flies in SHINY.

    I'm saying what, in your opinion, is more fitting of his character?

    Since between the toy, comics and show, it's hard to make out if he's bright or flat.
