    For me, it lies somewhere between the jet in the first movie and the truck in the last one.

    If we are speaking toy wise alone; I would have to go with the truck from DOTM.

    I'm sorry guys but a giant head sticking out in alt. mode just doesn't scream ALTERNATE mode to me. The explanation about megatron being a bold leader that does not care for disguises is just bullocks to me, and an excuse for poor toy design.

    If we are speaking solely on concept and screen animation, my favourite is the cybertronian jet. I just love the fact, that watching megatron in robot mode in TF1, you have no idea what he transforms into. The wings are nicely tucked into his back, and the nose cone is well disguised along his spinal cord.

    And unlike the toy, when megatron transforms in the first movie, the jet has excellent wingspan, no kibble and looks quite light and aerodynamic.
    If only the toy matched this I would be very happy.

    I'll take the flying tank thing from ROTF. Plus I just love the tread feet and the claw of a hand.

    DOTM Megatron. I like the characters who actually have Earth alt modes instead of metal origami.

    The jet for me. It fits his arrogance and brutality that he'd choose a purely Cybertronian alternate mode, as well as a mode that'd grant him surperiority in a fight (an aerial alternate mode, with powerful engines).

    His tank form. I love the vehicle itself; low-slung, surprisingly fast, wicked treads and the pronged cannon just have a very impressive feel to the vehicle, as well as the ability to sprout wings and fly. Plus, his head with the eyes still glowing at the front makes it seem positively alien; a tank with a face indeed. That's what I like about the tank; it's something you'd certainly recognise from the treads and the cannon, and yet it's distinctively alien.

    Robot mode is awesome too. Massive sharp shoulder, the jetpack, the spindly spider arm, the big treaded legs. It's a very intimidating and impressive look for Megs; bulky and powerful. His ROTF design is certainly my favourite :)

    His ROTF tank form was the best. He looked menacing and he just looked awesome.

    I liked DOTM, mostly because he's never been a semi truck before. As I said after it was confirmed, what has he NOT been over the years?

    But I'd have to tie the DOTM design with the ROTF design. Made him look large and in charge.

    I'd say all three.

    07-He was basically unstoppable,just pure "MEGATRON"
    ROTF-flying tank,armored up,totally Revenge seeking
    DOTM-Can't keep a bad 'con down,I shall be avenged,and leader vs leader=truck vs truck

    Whichever one is best.Toywise though,I'd say leader ROTF. Tank mode is ehh,but robot mode fits Perfectly.

    His DOTM mode gave him a very grim look, very Megatronish.

    So this thread is for alt modes only? Then TF1. I like it's looks more than the tank. Also, a flying tank is stupid to me.

    I hated his truck mode. It's completely unarmed and very unMegatron.

    I loved his jetmode, also his overall design in TF1 is just pure awesome. I love the fact he is built like a silverback in TF1, he was just overall a complete decepticon leader. I could go into details on why he was just awesome in TF1, but overall his jetmode is my fave

    I liked TF1 for the might, and TF2 for the brawn, but TF3 wins here. One, it's recognizable, which means he now must have larger armor panels that you can see clearly. Two, it was actually executed flawlessly. Three, his darker look with the cowl and shotgun made him seem like someone who would never, ever stop trying to rule the universe, even if he was killed and had his face blasted off. (Oh yeah...both happened.)

    Plus it spawned the easiest to use (Though not overly simple), yet still most fun Megatron toy ever.

    I thought Megatron had the might and brawn in TF1
