    While I will always have the most "feels" for G1 gun mode Megatron, I am learning to let it go. I understand the world has changed since I was a kid, and a gun mode just isn't going to happen again in toys or mainstream fiction. Since the gun mode has to become part of history, the tank mode is the obvious choice for what he should be going forward. Hasbro made the correct call in G2.

    I would have to go for car/jet since I was a big fan of Cybertron Megatron....or should I call him master Megatron because he was a seperate character in galaxy force

    Gun, tank, T-Rex, helicopter, Jet, etc. I like them all really. It gives the character a lot of versatility.

    Was it RID 2001 where he was a 5 changer. I remember having this as a kid and thinking it was the coolest thing ever. We need to see Megatron as a gigantic hand again!

    I'm a fan of tank Megatron. Megatron shrinking into a gun always seemed underwhelming for the altmode of a leader bot.

    Tank. Though the gun mode in G1 did well for him (and those wielding him), it will seem strange for some fans, though they've probably seen the Allspark shrink in the 2007 movie, Bumblebee grow a bit in Cyberverse when transforming to car mode, etc. Also, it would make him extremely hard to get for fans in the U.S. due to toy gun laws.

    According to TFWiki,
    It would really work for Megatron as a tank, as it's really just a big gun of treads.

    A jet also works, though it would seem that he would have a Cybertronian jet form as opposed to an Earth jet form for obvious reasons.

    Most of the RiD (of course it's RiD '01, what'd ya think?) modes don't quite cut it for me, especially the hand mode.

    A helicopter mode doesn't work well; it's not as fast as a jet and most likely isn't too durable unless taken from a military copter.

    A truck also doesn't cut it, as it doesn't actually have weapons on it, which most of the Decepticons have in their alt mode.

    The BW alt modes don't work as well as a tank, but would certainly strike fear into his victims.

    That said, I believe he should retain his popular tank mode.

    Also, where is the alligator mode that the original Basic Class BW toy had?

    Tank. But not a H tank. Something like the mammoth tank from Red Alert or a tank close to what exists now.

    But really I feel like because of the toys complicated history of not being as set in stone as prime I'm quite open to him being anything imposing.

    I'd prefer megatron to have a tank mode. though his gun mode will always be my favorite, as a tank he can still do the destruction chaos murder thingy without having to have someone else wield him

    Yeah, the tank is badass. My favorite tank is Armada Megatron. That tank mode just looks mean. It's got those saw blade things in the center to tear up anything it runs into.

    Helicopter,

    Tank is shockwave's thing, jet is Starscream, The four main decepticons should have different alt modes and a helicopter mode is awesome for Meg's(look at tfa)

    I doubt I’ll ever like anything more than the all too short-lived Figueroa stealth fighter mode.

    I'd have Megatron turn into an experimental tank used by whatever government transformer hunting group is in the story and a gun similar to the one he became in the Combiner Wars cartoon: no mass shifting, would need someone really strong to wield it, and for good measure have it use the anti matter from his original tech specs as the ammunition.
