    Technically speaking, due to the story of Beast Wars, Predacon Megatron was not a pretender to the name, G1 Megatron was. BW Megatron took his name from the Covenant of Primus, an ancient text that he assumed was prophetic in talking about G1 Megatron, when in fact it was detailing the events of the Beast Wars. So BW Megatron and G1 Megatron (in the context of the G1/BW/BM continuity) both named themselves after BW Megatron.

    Boy I remember the last person who referred to Beast Megatron as "pretender to the name".

    Ah, yes. She was before my time, though I do remember her getting referenced in places like the Transformers FAQ! Y'know, back when that was a thing.

    Was definitely a neat little footnote to the story that was given in the finale episodes

    Before, I was cool (almost with full contempt)on the BW (sorry not Beastmachines, never ever :p ) but it indeed grew on me, yup, hammy Megatron over the original brawler knife in his boot G1 Megatron has his place under the sun or stars) all thanks to great writing. Lawrence DiTillo also penned one of my fave Heman stories, Dragon's Gift (according to Mr.DiTillo, it was also one of his faves).

    As someone who was disappointed in Metroplex and Fortress Maximus, I agree.

    Well, looks like this comment just turned into a Meme.

    Though this was more prominent on Twitter.

    I'd like to know why they didn't give it a fifth booster?

    The fifth booster would've been right down the middle, where the feet are. Artistic liberty, so they didn't have to deal with the engineering of making those booster halves having to transform into a decent foot.

    The question is why couldn't his feet be partially made of the boosters. It wouldn't have really made him look any worse.

    I love when Titans come with an extra deluxe figure that incorporates into them.

    I'm 100% in for the extras and could live without the main bot.

    I’m avoiding titans, but this does look good. I quite like that it’s robot mode looks unique compared to other transformers.
