    ^ You make a compelling argument. I had been thinking "Eh, another Megs. Too many, too suck," but to have a GOOD one would complete the trilogy nicely.

    But the rusty truck is so lame! It's not cool at all! It fit the movie, but a leader class rusty truck seems like a waste!

    Then why not a retry at his RotF appearance? The CG model was very nice.

    I think you'll find that Truckatron is pretty darn popular. I think he looks awesome in this form.

    There's no way he'd be in scale with Leader Prime and keep his oil tanker. Kind of like how G1 Prime's chest is only as big as Motor Master's feet.

    He only needs to be in scale in robot mode like most leaders. Starscream and Sentinel Prime are offscale with Optimus in vehicle mode as well, so there's no problem.

    Besides, scale, in my transformers? NOT TODAY GOOD SIR.

    I like Megatron as a truck. It's better than an "alien tank" that looks like a melted hunk of metal.

    +1 for the Megatruck love. That design is much better than Cybertronian Metal Pile, and it gives him a shotgun. What's not to love?

    In retrospect, your words should not have been as arousing as I found them to be.

    Actually, y'know, I want a leader Ratchet. His DotM Deluxe figure was awesome and finally turned me onto his design.

    Bring on the leader medic!

    I don't like Truckatron because he has half his face missing, and he's rusty. He's the Decpticon Leader, he's supposed to have the powerful vehicle mode, like a tank or jet. I DO however like his robot mode, that looked cool (minus the half his head gone). But is a rusty truck really worth a leader class? Tank vs. Rusty Truck... I like the tank better...

    Actually, screw a movie CG design as the leader class. I want a movie styled G2 tank Megatron Leader figure.

    Oh hell, anything other than freaking Bumblebee would be nice. The Decepticons could use some love.

    Honestly, the whole damaged face thing was what I liked best about him. Made him all the more demented.

    The Doctor. He'd be a working, life-sized microscope!

    Or any Decepticon, really.
