Like the question says, how do you prefer his alt mode?
Gun....I know it makes absolutely no sense, but that's just how I grew up with him, so you know how people get stuck in their ways
Same here. I guess I always think of the hand gun first.
Alligator, it's awesome.
Gun, because barring Shockwave, it made him unique. Ultimately the Decepticons had plenty of jets, tanks, cars, space vehicles, helicopters, etc., but Megatron and Shockwave were the only guns.
Megatron as a gun was is and will always be dumb. It's so much of a detriment to the leader of the Decepticons.
I also thought tank was a little... eh, it just seems so restrictive. I prefer him to be a jet. It puts him on the same level as Starscream, not below.
Tank, although the gun mode will always be memorable to me because it was so unusual.
Gun because that's what he is.
Tank. G2 Megs was my all-time most most-wanted TFs I never got. He's a military leader, and a tank alt-mode works for that.
I grew up knowing him as a gun, but even then I thought it was kind of ridiculous. I prefer a tank, its size and power is fitting for the leader of the Decepticons.
Tank is the best choice.
i am totally consfused with the question. how do you prefer g1 megatron's alt mode?
G1 megatron only has ONE Alt mode!
anything past that is g2, beast wars, DW and IDW comics, movies, tv shows, toys and beyond.
g1 refers to the toy line, cartoon, and comics from 1984 until 1990ish. anything past that is NOT G1. and last i checked he only had 2 toys during g1.
Gun, and Action Masters.
Maybe if Super Megatron was released in Japan it'd count. but it never was.
so i am really confused on the question.
I like Megs as a gun, but it's just not practical. I remember seeing a comic someone drew after the first Bayformers movie. It was making fun of all the wank about Megatron not having a gun alt-mode. It had Megatron transforming into his gun-mode and saying something like "Starscream, fire!" And Screamer just lets Megs drop to the ground and is like "lol."
For me, it's G2 tank Megs all the way.
I've always felt the gun was just stupid. To me, Megatron works best as a tank. A defining feature of Megatron is the cannon. Same thing for a tank. It just fits very well.
Plus I'm a WFC who- er lady of the evening...
A jet is alright but I still prefer a tank. I wouldn't be offended if he became a triple changer with jet and tank modes though.
I'm pretty old school and G1 megatron as a Walter P-38 with all the attachments is IMHO still the most badass display version of Megatron (as a toy). In the 1980's cartoon I grew up accepting him as a gun and didn't really question it. I agree that him as a gun in the 'Bay' movies wouldn't make a lot of sense.
But on display, nothing gets more attention than Megatron in full gun form. I can't tell you how many people marvelled at my MP Megatron with all the attachments:
How can a big robot turn into a small gun? lol
Tank, hands down. Gun is too silly and Megatron being a jet is just boring to me, because there are too many Decepticon jets.
as G1 cannon known as Galvatron.
Animated Megs did a modern version of his alt mode the best. Something that flies, but still has a badass cannon. A gun is just stupid, and it doesn't really make sense to me for the leader of a team with a majority of flying guys to turn into a tank or something that can't fly.
