    You can almost feel bad for Megatron. In the movie, you see that hes a shell of his formerself and he knows it. Forced to find an earth vehicle mode, he ends up with a weathered beat up tanker. His base of operations was in a desert in Africa surrended by his hatchlings in cannisters. He is put in his place by Sentinel Prime during the activation of the pillers by getting his head slammed. The most telling of his downfall, when all the decepticons are fighting and Cybertron is nearing orbit, he is lying against a wall looking pathetic until Carly convinces him to take out Sentinel.

    Yeah, I would have honestly liked the truce ending if for no other reason than it would have made Megatron's constantly getting beat on come to a point. He was tired of the war, lost too much and just want to go be alone now.

    When Megatron is just sitting there in the alley looking up at Cybertron, I see it more as a sad old man finally seeing his dream come true than a true tyrant claiming victory.

    That all sounds nice and rosy, but you still have the fact that he was incredibly dangerous and if he had been granted this truce and had a chance to rebuild himself and the cons, would have been even more so. I agree that just a few simple lines of dialog would have really cleaned things up.

    Thats exactly how I felt when I saw him there just watching Cybertron come into orbit. Would have been a perfect moment for redemption, but he has gone this far and killed so many it was going to end badly.
