    Hey all,

    What do you think the next Megatron should be,as we've seen Hasbro can
    make toy guns if they make them not look so much like real ones,but would
    they?,probably not.So what do you think they should make Megs alt mode
    look like?.

    I say a battle ship,not an aircraft carrier as those are HUGE,but a battle
    ship can be just about any size.And this could be for any line,the next movie,
    the next cartoon,or whatever.Let me know what yall think.Later all.

    As a battleship fan, I like that idea.

    But I think something like an Army Hummer would work better.

    Attack helicopter worked well in Animated for me.

    He has to be roughly the same size as Optimus... maybe a bit bigger unless mass shifting is okay.

    I like the idea that all decepticons fly.

    Hasbro have said they couldn't release Classics Megs again, so gun modes are completely off the table.

    Tak-Tom are a different story, but with shared molds, we've probably seen the last gun Megs :(

    Take a tank, a floating space gun, and some kind of battle-ready spaceship, mix'um up ala War Within & IDW Pre-Earth stylings; color/deco to taste.

    there is nothing wrong with a tank alt mode. It fits him quite well actually. Problem is his robot mode. Its always short on something. Leader rotf megs would have been awesome if he had some articulation, not to mention a better version of his gimpy arm. Alt mode for this was awesome! Although a navy destroyer would be badass! Animated had the right idea too! Making him an attack helicopter was good. Megs as an apache or whatever the modern version of that is would be awesome as an MP.

    Although a tank or chopper would be more practical, I agree with the sentiments of the posters here that a battleship would be AWESOME. WE always could use more naval Transformers, and for a battleship altmode, it needs someone commanding and intimidating like MEGATRON!

    Megatron as a base transformer would be cool. Kind of like beast wars 2 gigatron. Its a Trypticon retool and in their story megatron transfers his spark into it.

    But if he turned into a Combined Aircraft Carrier battleship.
    (Armada Tidal Wave) While still having a G1 helmet and fusion cannon. That would be a great megatron figure.

    Really since Hasbro always fills the Leader class slots with Optimus Prime and Megatron Anyway. Turn them both into Fortress bots.

    (Include Powermaster Homages for that Prime design.)

    I liked Megs as a Helicopter in Animated, but him as a Tank again does sound good.

    I like Megs as a tank, preferably highly advanced ones. Old style tanks work for him, but not as well. The WFC design is epic, as is the ROTF design. Both are high-tech tanks that really give off a sense of power and superiority.

    I think he should be kinda like his Animated Cybertron mode, but with lots more detail, a little bigger, and more menacing. Or a tank. But not a human earth tank, more of a movie-ish version. But not as suckish.

    I think megatron is great the way he is in the movie and dont want that verson of him to be alterd we just need a much better leader class toy

    to be honest i think they made the last megatron toy crappy on purpose so they can sell him better for the next movie it would of been so easy for them to make his arm bend just look at voyager class

    for the next series ummmm

    gun wont work damb customs
    attack helecopter works well
    tank works well

    it would be nice for him to keep a cybertronin form and take on abit of beast mechines megatron the whole anything but our race is disgusting feel worked well

    or the bfg9000 off doom
