    If Maketoys would release Galaxy Meteor as Shattered Glass Starscream it would also be cheaper than the BotCon toy.

    The original concept for the megatron this is based on was supposed to be a transmetal 3 not a transmetal 2 but it ended up being a pre beast wars form

    Understood. It's just what we've know for quite a while and what Botcon has also shown.

    Yea, the history of that figure is kinda screwy haha like the actual figure also kind of unintentionally homages savage/noble as well since the factory didn’t do the paint apps for the dragon eyes so it’s the 2nd time BW Megatron has turned into a blind dragon

    Megatron appeared in this form in one teaser panel of the Universe comic, which took place after Beast Machines. So it was both his pre Beast Wars and post Beast Machines form. It makes sense that he came back from the dead in his ORIGINAL form.

    Then after Universe he upgraded again to his Deluxe Cybertron T-Rex recolor.

    I don’t think that panel in universe actually showed him, just his eyes/shape of his head, he would have been in the next issue in the tm3 body though had 3h not lost the license and universe continued. It is his final form in beast wars uprising though

    Yes, but it was the head of the proposed TM3 toy. Good enough for me to say it appeared.

    So the official evolution of BW Megatron's form, using the US cartoons and club comics, seems to be:

    1-TM3 form during the end of the great wars
    2-He was then stripped of that form for disobeying orders, but started wearing an exoskeleton, giving us his BotCon Darksyde form.
    3-Crashed on old Earth, was reformatted into BW purple T-Rex mode.
    4-Exposed to the wave that turned him into a Transmetal.
    5-Megatron's spark and a lava bath turned him into TM2 Megatron.
    6-Return to Cybertron and trying to remove his beast form left him as Beast Machines dragon Megatron
    7-Optimus' reformat beam and the plasma energy chamber turn him into Savage/Nobel.
    8-Spark was extracted and it possessed the giant flying head.
    9-Depolarized by Nightscream's attack he then floats around and possessed a bunch of dead bodies, eventually settling on the diagnostic drone.
    10-Builds himself into Optimal Megatron.
    11-Dies with Optimus Primal, but Optimus Primal is resurrected by the power of Alpha Trion, which returns Megatron in TM3 form.
    12-Upgrades himself into the 10th Anniversary BW form to counter Optimus Primal's similar upgrade.

    sounds about right, at least for the most prominent beast wars stories. personally i ignore dawn of the predacus (partly because i havent read it) due to inconsistencies with dawn of futures past, but when including everything thats it except for the darksyde proposing the gator megatron body before he settled on the t-rex form (from the idw source books)

    I just listed all the fiction in that timeline, whether I liked it or not. That Dawn of the Predacus story is not as bad as some people complain about. It's just not what they imagined it would be.

    Yeah, I know of that form, but since he didn't take it, I didn't list it.

    fair enough :)  out of curiosity, where was it shown that he upgraded to his 10th anniversary body? i know primal was only ever shown in that body in like a single panel of the cybertron comic and i dont remember megatron ever appearing in the fiction after universe issue 2 where it showed his head

    I don't think we ever SEE that 10th anniversary body. There is an extended full page biography for the 10th Anniversary Optimus Primal in a club comic, which explains it is his body gained some time after the Universe story by using various upgrades he gained in dimension travel. It also mentions Megatron did the same. So BW's Megatron's final appearance (that I know of) in fiction in that timeline was in the biography of Optimus Primal in a club comic.
