    Well they needed a way to give him his sword, and I guess a helicopter was the best choice!

    Not a helicopter, more of an Osprey.

    It's like what if a jet and helicopter had a baby? He has wicked vicious blades and a giant cannon. I'm content.

    Still worlds better than a shoe.

    Actualy they're alien machines, not STEREOTYPICAL ROBOTS FROM PLANET EARTH, they can fight however they want to just like humans.

    Plus it's a homage to his original toy, who had a sword.

    "japaneise"? Besides, it's not "japaneise concepts" it's called melee combat. You can't always have a gun with you.

    In the first episode Megatron lost his gun arm and used a sword to put BB in place. And since when are swords Japanese concepts? How is it Grimlock is fine to have one but not Megs? Megs had a sword before, too.

    And since when is it written in stone that machine have to use guns?

    And you're apparently ignoring the fact that Prime has an axe.


    Besides, if you were to complain about "Japaneise" concepts, why not Prowl? He's a frootloopin' NINJA!

    No kidding...what was it, the 2nd ep where Prime and Megs fought with Ax and Mace?

    I like the sword, it's balls out. I can't wait to see this toy in package. The first one on ebay will probably go with a kazzilion dollars.

    :lol  Frootloopin?

    But yeah, they're super advanced robots. Their weapons are super advanced, like Prime's Rocket-powered Axe-o'-Doom, etc. I think Megatron's have a purple electricity or energy that flows around them...

    if i'm not mistaking, i believe both blades become a sword, if i remember correctly from the toy fair pictures...

    so he doesn't just have one sword, but two :)

    Ebay:
    His swords are sexy. Not too keen on his face sculpt though. The helmet is an A+ otherwise.

    He's not really like an Osprey, in that his rotors don't tilt (or at least, we've never seen them do so, and the toy doesn't seem to be able to either), which is a key feature of the Osprey. He's simply a dual-rotor helicopter. If anything, he could be considered more of a gyrodyne, given the two big jet engines at his sides. Closest thing to Megatron in the real world would be the Ka-22.

    Well, his face has animatronics, so it might look different in person.

    Fun Fact: Beast Machines Obsidian - the toy is a tilt-rotor, but the show model is not (at least not apparently)

    Fun Opinion: Animated Megatron's Helicopter mode would make a nifty Obsidian - the robot mode, not so much.
