    As those of you who, like me, own the TFPRID Megatron figure or have looked at the many images of it would know, the toy has a vey diferrent alt-mode to that of the animation. While i personally prefer the altmode of the toy i know other here will disagree with me.

    The animation model looks more like it could fly.

    The animation model at least looks kind of like...something. Yeah, like it could fly. Like it's some kind of spaceship. Plus, on the show, it never stands still for you to get a really good look at it, which helps a lot. Maybe the toy would look better if you threw it or something.

    You are what is known as a contrarian.

    The show one looks more streamlined. The second pic just looks like a mess of plastic.

    Honestly, neither of them. I would love to see a Megatron WITHOUT an alt form, because he believes it beneath him to hide or something along those lines, so he walks the earth as Megatron, superstar not as Megatron, some sort of weird vehicle.

    THAT is the Megatron that I want to see.

    On TF: Prime he hides nothing. His transformation is for rapid transportation
    purposes. Hell, he doesn't even hide his head in alt-mode.

    He still transforms though, and idk, I just think that is something that Megatron, the Gladiator, wouldn't do in my humble opinion.

    Besides, it'd be great character development if he was the only TRANSFORMER that never TRANSFORMED. Would add a depth to him unlike any we've ever seen.

    But then, without the aerial capabilities of his jet form, those giant Unicrons would have squashed him. And he wouldn't have been able to fly away when Optimus shot him on the first Space Bridge. Or go on errands without needing constant ground-bridges. Or shoot Bumblebee and Raf.

    We saw how bad it is for Bumblebee, who isn't even a flight-capable super adavanced jet, but just a simple car. If Megs couldn't transform, he'd be woefully inefficient :( 

    On-topic, I prefer the animated jet. Looks a lot more streamlined and neat :)

    ...Seriously? They're the exact same design. Any differences between the two come from the limitations of modern toy engineering.

    Pretty much what I was going to say. They're the same concept; the same design. Any differences is due to the obvious chasms that come into play when you have two completely different mediums portraying the same design.

    The toy looks like if it hit you it'd knock you into the sun. The animation model looks like it'd shear you in half, knocking one half into the sun and the other into a public gathering.

    His show alt mode is sick as hell.

    Not a fan of either, but it at least looks more fly-able than the thing Movie 1 Megatron turned into and more menacing than WFC's stubby losange tank.

    I like both but the show model is more smooth,menicing and streamlined however I appreaciate the effort that was made by the desginers to make it accurate as possible.
