A stealth bomber?

How completely and utterly lame...

Just when I thought this joke couldn't get any worse.

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? :-)

What if Megatron would happen to get an alt-mode during the epilogue of the movie. Like say the Autobots are thinking they've finally seen the last of Megatron, and the last thing we see before the credits (or maybe even after the credits are done)...a stealth bomber flies into view and transforms into Megs, quoting something like "I still function". This could help establish the sequel.

How many people are going to stay until the credits are over just in case they added something there? ;)

I usually sit through the credits just in case they stuck something in at the very end.

Seems to be the thing to do in the big movies now a days. Alas, it will no doubt be something super lame.

I vaugely remember already talking about this in the first news article that was made about IGNs press release. It went up at the same time the original story did. As I said in the other thread (about this very same topic) I am very weary of what Megs earth mode really is. I'd like it if he was a Stealth bomber, as they are fantastic looking machines. To be honest I could see him being more of a rail gun or something like Galvatrons cannon mode. I haven't read the script, so I could be swinging at the ground here. Meh' I can wait a few more months to find out for myself.

I will. I always stay and watch the credits. Those people put time in, they deserve it.

That's a good way to think about it. I use to do that with my girlfriend, but we would always get kicked out before it was really finished because I think the ticket checkers would always assume we were going to try and do it in the theater. But as for the respect part, I think I will stick around for that as opposed to if there is a little nugget at the end.

I really wish that they made him a tank. Of course, a stealth bomber isn't that bad. It could grow on me.

It wouldnt surprise me if the in-game alt mode of Megatron looks similar to to B2 stealth bombr, but I bet his movie alt mode istays cybertronian.

I think Hairball178's got the right idea about Megatron getting his earth-mode late in the game (if at all). They made that giant toy of him as a cybertronian jet (bag of nails, or whatever the hell that is), so it stands to reason that he's going to spend a good portion of the movie like that- whether we like it or not.

I suspect it's an F-117, which IGN mistakenly referred to as a "Stealth bomber," rather than as a "Stealth fighter." Common mistake, but either one fits Megatron's character, I feel.

Perhaps the ariel battle between Megs and Screamer is Megs in his Cybertronian mode. It could be a Cybertron Bomber. That's what I rekon.

And I hate it when they stick a really short, but meaningful scene after the credits. I usually leave by then, meaning I have to wait till I get the dvd to see it (like with X3 and Pirates of the Carrabean).
