    Man I thought this thread was getting dull when posts were getting to the level of "I kinda like this one particular movie prime" moment. Bravo for rustling so many jimmy's and a bonus point for getting a reply that starts with a boarder line personal attack. Chefs kiss.

    myself? I think every Megatron is in some way the leader of a rebellion. Some times is a coup others a revolution. Really I don't care, it always devolves into a civil war but I think coups give cons a better start in regards to explaining why so many Decepticons are out the gate very powerful and fully willing to fight. Being raised from the military and from those that seek to gain from their rule you don't really need to explain why Megatron has a cannon, why so many have combat specialisations etc. Revolution origins can work I think it requires a lot of work to just lay down the ground work to establish something similar to the normal status que.

    I think that was one of the subtle things G1 did is the bios is that most Autobots were civil engineers or people who just had a non-combat trait who turned their skills to war while the Decepticons are normally described by a combat role.

    Also I want to say it was DW or maybe I'm mashing stories together in my memories but I liked the idea that Megatron went to war to defend cybertron basically built the Decepticons almost by accident from being such a good combat leader and surrounding himself with the best men for the job and after what was a successful crusade returns to cybertron and is just disappointed by what it's become and decides with his unrivalled skills in logistics, leadership, problem solving he can turn cybertron into something truly worth fighting for.... other people be damned.

    so many colour errors I'm surprised we've not seen any of those from 3p's or as Hasbro Pulse toys. I'd be down for a construticon green/purple Shockwave (light wave, Gamma ray) and an Onslaught coloured seeker.

    I really hate transformers not having pupils in their eyes/optics it makes it really hard to understand who theyre talking to in a crowd when theyre not looking at them. Like please give them pupils so I can know theyre actually freaking alive and if theyre not staring into my soul

    Grey is the worst color for Megatron, despite being his iconic color scheme and it requires more colors to break it apart, such as more red+black/dark grey, dark blue or flat out making a Megatron that's purple, green or some other color. This is especially bad in toy form because the cheaper the Megatron toy, the more he's going to look like bland unpainted plastic.

    If painted with shiny silver, however, it can work but this is rarely budget efficient for a toyline.

    Honestly, many of his repaints, such as Animated Shadow Blade Megatron or his IDW Stealth Bomber design, work rather well. Another route would be to go with something like his Beast Wars S1 colors.

    I uh

    I liked all the Bayverse films

    (although that's likely cus I really didn't care about the plot and/or my interest in the film itself and the cinema food is a split 50/50 :p )

    Megatron would definitely be a more interesting Twitch streamer than Optimus. Optimus would just kill himself over the death of an NPC, but Megatron would probably be the one doing the killing.

    NGL, with V-tubers and Hololive been quite popular nowadays, I wonder what would be like if Megatron sat down to start a live-streaming Hololive career on YouTube or Twitch, using his own holo avatar and a webcam.

    The Cyberverse design of the Quintessons is way, WAY cooler than the G1 design.

    The designs featured in the opening of the Bumblebee are highly overrated and not all that great and some, like Arcee, Ratchet, Ironhide, have absolutely terrible faces.

    I didn't want to derail the main thread, but the news of the tarp covered flat nose truck being transported in Canada potentially being Optimus Prime does nothing for me. Whoop-dee-doo. It's yet another flat nose Optimus Prime. That's also another reason I'm posting this comment on this thread: I have absolutely no excitement about the next film, save for my excitement for new toys (because I've gotta feed my plastic crack addiction lol). I know that the designs are going to be G1. Not to mention the plethora of "G1 good Bay bad" takes that people are going to be putting out once the official designs are revealed.

    Not only are they overrated, but I would argue that they are the reason the movie had so much staying power amongst the fan base. The movie was okay, but I honestly feel like if it hadn't been for the Cybertron scenes in the movie, this film would've been tossed to the wayside by fans after a few months. They'd only bring it up to talk about how it's "at least better than the Bay movies".
