I just can’t stop myself!

Why do they keep doing this to me?

This is the Megatron I grew up with. He turned in to a gun. He was cool.

Megatron as a gun

Later on, in Generation 2, he became a tank, still cool and I could live with it.

Both heads were pretty similar though.

So, leave it to the movie folks to mess up even more. Here’s Megatron’s head from the movie.

And also, he turns in to some sort of weird alien jet.

Why are they doing this? Are they trying to anger the fans? They can’t even throw us a lousy bone? No, they have to keep pissing us off by changing EVERYTHING about the original we loved so. Instead they almost seem to be intentionally annoying us by trying to see how much they can get away with and still have us go to the movie. Part of me wants to boycott it, part of me still thinks “It’s the Transformers, you have to go!” Damn you Hollywood…damn you.

    You remember that in the original Transformers they did not look like machines from earth until they arrived on earth and took on the shape of cars and jets and stuff. So I hope this design is simply what Megatron looks like before he comes to earth and assumes the shape of a gun.

  • Yep, I do remember, but sadly, the current rumor is he is the alien jet for the whole movie.

    No…for Transformers 3 he turns into this truck thing.
