    OK, what in universe role does GDO Megatron play in other collecions? I use him as a alternate universe version of Megatron, upgraded with Alternity/ / MARS/ Sideways derived tech (maybe I should talk to Pol about that one)

    I just put him on one of 3 shelves dedicated to the different versions of Megatron. :)

    Make him G2 Megatron who, after he defeated Bludgeon (as he did in the G2 comics), took some of his design and applied it to himself in order to become stronger and also to boast a little bit.

    He's my primary Megatron now, since he's a respectable size for the leader (don't own Classics Voyager Megs). My Classics Deluxe Megs is now Archforce (in the wrong colors, obviously).

    This... Plus he looks ever-so-menacing going up against a non-powered up RTS Laser Prime.

    Well GDO Megatron didn't make it in my collection. I have United Voyager a himself, Classic Voyager as Megaplex & United Tank Megatron as Archforce (G2). I may eventually pick him up but as it stands currently if I have a G1 Classic-verse version of a figure I don't usually have a G2 Classic-verse version of same figure. The exception being if I can find a suitable re-purposing.

    Yeah, he didn't make the cut for mine either. It's a super cool figure, but I'm not really into G2 homages with these types of figures much. That and the Classics - Generation is crowded enough as it is (yet there are still key characters missing).

    I had him and he was G2, but he had a misassembled foot, so I returned him. He's someone else's classifying problem now!

    I just look at him as one of the many forms Megatron can choose from. In my mind Transformers can take on a different body the way superheroes change costumes. Sometimes they get a new one with subtle differences, sometimes they get a heavy duty upgrade, and sometimes they go back to their original costume.

    Is the samurai megatron in a comic book line or something? Or is it a megatron they just wanted to make

    I think it's just a "well, it's the only damn Voyager tank we have." Granted, Megatron's been vaguely samurai-y before (Animated somewhat, Alternity a lot more) but it was probably mostly just "We want to make a G2 Megatron. Ideas?"

    I use it as a G2 Megatron right next to G2 Prime with the Battle Tanker Upgrade.

    Or you can use it a a colorful doorstopper , but I wouldn't recommend it.

    Once I get him, he will go front and center on my G2 shelf.

    Glad to see so many people using United Megatron as Archforce, I thought I might have been the only one. Now all we need is a Hero Prime to make into Sureshot, although I've called my Combat Hero Prime that for now.
