    Besides G2, The War Within, Stormbringer and the new Soundwave spotlight comic, where else has Megatron been shown as having a tank alt mode? I haven't followed IDW's Infiltration or Escalation series, but thought I read somewhere that he was a tank in one of them as well, albeit very briefly.

    Thanks in advance for any info!

    Megatron was a tank in the Armada series, too.

    IDW's Megatron starts out as a 'tank mode' Cybertronian vehicle, but converts to a gun alt mode in Infiltration.

    G2's Megatron branches from the Marvel comic where he was converted into a tank mode by Cobra.

    Besides Armada, there's also the toy from the classics Optimus/Megatron 2pack, which has yet to make it to comic form. (Somewhat thankfully)

    BW Megatron pre-earth form in the Botcon set from last year was a recolor of Cybertron Defense Red Alert... so he's kind of a tank.

    to clear up whats stated above: IDW Megatron was a tank on Cybertron and when he first arrived on earth in "Infiltration" and it was not until later in "Escalation" that he became a gun. any tank appearance in Stormbringer or a spotlight issue is covered during that time. He looks a little different in his Origin book artwork so he may be a tank or something completely different there.

    He's referring to the incorrect use of the apostrophe in the plural form.

    Do you want to count Megatron as Reverse Convoy in the Robot Masters line? That's another tank, though its a lot like G2 Megatron.

    He is (for some reason) a russian APC with a giant missile laser cannon strapped onto it ;) 

    Don't make me dig up my 'This is not a tank!' chart! :p
