    Well, considering his distaste for humanity, and also his body was reformatted and given new alt-mode by the Spark Key, but why should it got cockpit? It could have been like Predator UAV with no cockpits. Any thoughts?

    Because he's based on an earth vehicle? Seriously, Cyb Megs was an alien jet/cat and had a cpockpit, so did Energon Megs. Cockpits aren't just for humans. In G1 Decepticons and Autobots rode in eachother a lot. (obviously only with their respective teamates and never it the enemy... usually)

    If the key used an earth vehicle as the base, it would reformat him as such. Besides, it's not like we know he has a cockpit. It could just be sensors and stuff in there.

    had to be scanned from somewhere in the doctor's lab. Probably found the form he took the most destructive & useful

    by the way check out my new character in my 100th post thread here. Tell me what you think.

    He needs somewhere to stash "useful humans" he kidnaps to further his plans.

    Also, it helps with disguise. There have to be times when he needs to lay low, he's not stupid enough to expose himself. Look at Lost and Found when he talked Lugnut through avoiding a battle.

    I assumed Megatron pretty much designed his new body from the ground up, Earth vehicle mode included, just like he designed Soundwave and the Dinobots. It was just built with the help of the key instead of Sumdac's own equipment.

    This is but one of a billion things you need to suspend disbelief about the world of Transformers, much less the world of make believe cartoons.

    What everyone else said: it helps with disguise.

    Megatron's cockpit is like a Venus Fly Trap-- it lures people into thinking, "Oh, hey, COOL HELICOPTER! And no one's around! I must fly it!" Then they get in and SMASH, Megatron's cockpit walls and floor quickly close in on themselves and mush the human into putty. And he uses the mushed remains for spark nourishment. Just like a Venus Fly Trap.

    Why sure, it was fluffy and spikey at the same time, with little feet that came out of his fenders, and a little collar with "Megsy" written on it. He used it all the time in the show, see...

    ..ah screw it, it's just easier to ask for your badge, officer, as I did not know you were the spelling police.:)
