    That'd make little sense, given how Siege Megs already got a G2 Combat Hero repaint.
    I assume he will have a "hidden" upside down gun mode same as Shockwave or Sixshot's "submarine" modes.
    Not to mention a listing for a deluxe (likely Weaponizer) Fast Track.

    We've only had one TRUE G2 Megatron homage in the Generations and it was a legion sized figure. A honest-to-goodness bright green with purple camo fully articulated G2 Megatron would almost be welcomed - but I'd want G2 Decepticon tampos too.

    I don't count him. other than the fact they're both tanks and are green, there's not much else connecting the two.

    Maybe others do.

    its an almost identical transformation layout, front of tank becomes chest, rear of tank becomes legs, turret becomes arms. the only real difference is that he has an arm cannon rather than shoulder cannon and his styling matches the rts optimus (has a bit of movie influence)

    You can say that about Brawl too, minus the arms. Transformation isn't everything. Styling is.

    If you use ER Starscream, Optimus as template / example, ER Megatron could be an even MORE G1 style version of Siege Megatron, maybe he turns into a gun instead of an Earth Tank? That's probably too much to even hope for, I dont think Hasbro will ever make him a gun again, the gun toy laws and the political atmosphere surrounding guns makes that possibility nigh impossible so i guess a dull Earth Tank it is......or maybe a suprise out of left field....a Combat Helicopter ala TFA? Dare I imagine

    he'll be a tank, they've standardized his altmode intentionally over the last few years

    We should get the accurate G2 Abrams tank version of Megatron in his green and purple deco with an alternate repaint as an exclusive in white and dark gray
    My hope is that they’ll do a G1 robot mode non-transforming Megatron action figure with a small gun that represents his old mode that can be held by his many minions to abide by gun laws. To make up for lack of transformation they give him all of his accessories and multiple faces with different expressions

    Considering they gave Siege Ultra Magnus the alt mode from RiD01, I suppose an Animated homage alt mode wouldn't be too far out of bounds. I just finally want a robot mode that looks like this:

    That G2 toy is near the top of a list of older toys I'd like a MODIFIED version of, IE the original toy with just a few pieces changed:

    Ditch the solid grey chest and upper leg piece for something with a waist & hip joints and you'd be laughing.

    The Combat Megatron purple tank the next year shows you it can be done (why has that never been redone in Green or Silver?)
