    Megatron has to return, right? Not necessarily in this movie, but somewhere in the story. Now the question is, how will he look?

    Well, Megatron came to Earth to get the Allspark, and crash-landed before he could scan an alt mode. Then afterwards, he never got a chance. So whenever he arises, that would be a priority, right? He could become a hulking tank or jet or something. His robot form would change, possibly drastically.

    So of course, we'd get an awesome new toy!:D 

    What do you think?

    I don't think anything's really big enough (and cool enough) for megs to scan on earth especially since ss has taken the f-22 and he's too big to be an earth tank.

    I think Megs as a tank works. In fact I think it's the only thing that works. i can't see Megs as a plane, and the chopper I would have picked for was Blackout's alt mode. The Osprey would be decent choice, but they already used that for Incinerator. I say use the British Challenger 2 Tank as Megs alt mode. He needs to be something with big firepower, and that's as close as we can get to big firepower without a made up alt mode. Who knows, they customised Ratchet and Bonecrusher for part one, maybe they'll customize Megs...

    I don't dig Megs being only different from SS by color and his head.

    I still think that Movie Megatron's ego would not allow him to taint his pure Cybertonian form... but if I were to place bets, I'd have him as an SR-71. Granted, the Blackbird is out of commision, but it is somewhat reminiscent of his movie alt mode.

    everyone who has ever played halo needs to watch them. the latest one is frigging amazing.

    for one, that's actually the YF-23, which was the other contest entry for the US's superplane competition. it went up against the F-22 which turned out to be far superior, and so the US bought the F-22. So considering that these things don't technically "exist" i think that megatron would stand out a little bit lol. but then again, it was stated that he chose not to have an Earth alt mode in the first movie. i would expect that his mind wouldn't change.

    then again, i guess it would make sense. him coming back from the dead...he'd definitely want to use the element of surprise in the highest degree.

    i thought the blackbird was gonna be skyfire (or jetfire, wat is he gonna be called in the movie?) and why is he gonna be a decepticon??

    i didnt say its an F22, its clearly not..i didnt know wat it was though :D 
    and i just assumed that he meant a black jet (identical to the silver starscream) as megatron's alt mode, coz the pic had a silver jet and a black jet..if this is wat was meant, then thats probably a cool idea, like a prototype thing, which is working for the car alt modes :D

    The Blackbird is Jetfire, according to the leaked callsheets which Bay claimed was fake (even then, it might be a Soundwave cover).

    I would differ on the F23 vs. the F22. Check all the specs. Some of the decision was political as well.

    I'd love to see the return of Megatron, although I doubt he should be revived and play a big part in the second movie. Maybe only at the end to set up for the sequel?

    I can totally see him scan an earth object and his appearance change into something more similar to his G1 counterpart. I think Animated handled this good (although limited) by having Megatron appear in a Cybertronian mode in the beginning, only to have him be rebuilt to an Earth mode later on.

    I read a theory on this board a while back that the **SPOILER?**SR-71 (according to the script, Jetfire) could be Megatron...although I think that ship would function greatly as the Earth counterpart to Meg's Cybertronian Jet, I doubt it's him. After all, then how did he end up in a museum and become a ship that has been there for years? ;) 

    It probably is Jetfire, brought to life by an Allspark fragment?

    If he came back as one of the main battle tanks from USA, UK etc I'd be happy.
