Earth alt mode for Megs?

This is the forum to discuss all of those video games you love playing or that are coming out. From Transformers video games to Fighting games to Sports games ... whatever makes you a happy Seibertronian. Just keep it the topics and conversations game and console related.

Exactly, they would have worded it differently instead of making you sound stupid for not knowing something that hasnt been confirmed yet. My guess is that his cybertron alt mode is LIKE a stealth bomber

I don't believe the B2 is the only stealth bomber in the US arsenal anymore, but the new one I also don't believe has been publicly unveiled either. Could this be what all the hush-hush is about concerning Meg's alt mode?


:-?

You believe Transformers is going to "reveal" a currently unknown stealth bomber? The B-2 is the only current stealth strategic bomber (strategic meaning B-52, B-1, B-2 style heavy payloads, different from the F-117 which is really a specialized ground attack fighter, so basically a "bomber" as well) in the USAF. Even if there was a weapon system they publically disavowed, they wouldn't license hasbro and Bay to depict it in CGI and mass produce toy replicas that transform into a villainous alien leader. Not before it had been catalogued in something like Jane's Defense and even made its way into the pages of something like Popular Mechanics.

At best, if there is an Earth alt for megs, and it doesn't look like there will be, and it's not a B-2 like the video game article suggests, it could transform into a proof of concept or prototype aircraft. The A-12 Avenger II was supposed to be "razor shaped" and not as big as a B-2, but I dunno if that ever made it off the drawing board. The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter would be a possibility, but doesn't fit the description. Heh, maybe Megs was captured decades ago, so he transforms in the YB-49, which did see action in the 50s movie version of the War of the Worlds.

Bottom line, you're not going to see any "new" military equipment that hasn't been publicly available via scholarly databases or public defense analysts.

I hope it looks better than Cybertron Soundwave.

And if you like it fine, but the tank never sat well with me. I always thought, with how large he's suppose to be, an anti-aircfaft turret gun would be cool.

It would keep the gun motif, and I thought it would be cool if the helmet and face could form the control seat. The arms and legs streched, compacted, and folded to make the tri-pod, and the bady forming the cannon.

Maybe one day.

Well, they wouldn't be the first people to sound stupid by trying to make themselves sound like they're in the know but are actually mistaken. I'll believe IGN when they show a screenshot. Until then, in my world the game's development version has Megatron transforming into a giant milkshake cup.

Hearsay maybe, but supposedly its one of bay's people and then the magazine also states it, so its a little bit more believable than if I just come out and say Megatron is going to be the Oscar Meyer Weeniemobile.

Why would Megatron even need a Alt form in this movie he is frozen in Anartica until the end of it. I would like to see him as a Tank like in Transformers Armada except without the stupid beetle ends on his head. As far as who he gets to be voiced as like i said before what is the point when he isnt in the movie except for 15 minutes or less. I can understand if they do something like showing flashbacks like how the war started then he would need voice over. But Next time please put In Arcee, Ultramagnus, Hotrod, Devestator, Soundwave, Shockwave and Autobot City.

I love what you said SoulofOptimus. Sheer brilliance! Made me laugh a lot! I doubt we can trust any source but the official one anymore. Doing so just gets your hopes up.

In fact, I'd like to see Megatron as a massive battleship or something like that. Something truly menacing. What's scarier than a massive ship covered in guns that's ploughing it's way through the city?

A stealth bomber?

How completely and utterly lame...

Hee hee. Nice one, Grizzly :)

Maybe I'm just not cynical enough, but I'm willing to listen to these fellas for now. After all, there have been two ultra/leader sized Megatrons in the past 4 toy lines, albeit repaints. Considering how much Hasbro is investing in the movie line it's not unbelieveable that they could have two leader-sized Megatron figures with another one out later in the year. Rest assured, the stuff we've seen so far is really just the first couple of waves.

I think FreakNasty knows something.

Folks at DM.net talking about a F-117. It seems to have come up a few different times. Hmmm...

Does anyone else here think it's mildly alarming that all of us could be looking at Megatron's alt mode and debating over what it looks like/supposed to be? :-)
