    I rather see them ditch the gun alt mode and do a MP G1 Megatron as a tank, so I might be able to find it in the states.

    I think we'll get one, but not before galvatron (or some other Decepticons). In several of the interviews with the Takara designers, they said that they didn't just want to redo everything, and try and bring in some other characters.

    100% chance. But he won't be a gun.

    This. The gun mode on the original MP made the figure so..lanky looking it just didnt look good. I have the United repaint gun Megatron so that scratches that itch, but for today's purposes, a tank mode would be awesome and would have US fans a chance at one.

    G1 Megatron is not a tank. If they hold true to G1 like they have been, it will be a gun, but no American release. I personally hope they stay true to G1, I don't mind paying extra for an import that will fit in with the rest of the Masterpiece line. A G2 figure in a G1 line is just silly imo.

    Downsized Masterpiece Megatron has been doing the rumor rounds for a while now.

    if he's a gun he's an easy pass, so I really hope they jump to Galvatron next.

    I myself want them to stay true to the gen 1 asthetic after all when i think of megatron i think of the walther p38 and would love him to be a japan exclusive,I think the masterpiece megs we have now is simply badass,head is perfect,huge fusion cannon but is just too big with the new line..but galvatron would be sweet too and im sure we will get one someday

    We're going to get a Galvatron gun and a Megatron gun eventually. We just have to be patient.

    There will not be a MP Megatron tank. That would completely defeat the purpose of the Masterpiece label.

    I want a G1 Megatron, so it has to be a gun. They can give us a tank when they start doing official G2 repaints on the previous molds

    Umm...no, it wouldn't. Besides, they already defeated the purpose when they slapped the Masterpiece label onto movie repaints...

    As for what the chances of a smaller gun-mode Masterpiece Megatron....I honestly don't know. Though add me to the group that want to see him done as a tank. That way Hasbro can actually bring him over here.... I honestly don't think his gun-mode is necessary for it, tbh.

    I'd love to see a toy out of that, especially leader class, just not as a MP. It's just not what the line is supposed to be about.

    Yes it would those two are MOVIE Masterpieces.

    Again as others said only Megatron MP as a tank would be G2, not G1. G1 has to be a gun or it's just not G1.
