How do you do that when you have a tyranical dictator from an alien planet? You make him the gun.
Point in case:
-Guns = Bad
-Megatron = Bad Guy
Evil Leader = Gun + Bad Guy
Now take the Nazi based items and input them into the equation...
-Nazis = Bad
-Evil Leader who's a gun + Nazi based items = Mega Evil Leader of Ruthless Alien Robot Warriors
Megatron = 30 tons of Pure Evil
*Phhheeeewwwww* I'm going to bed now...
Jokes aside, here's an interesting question. Mind the marketing gimmick, did he really need to transform? His alt mode didn't provide him any tactical advantages, unlike others (providing faster flight for jets, intercepting radio transmissions for radios, playing back recordings for tape decks, transport for land vehicles, etc.). It's not like Megatron wanted to disguise himself anyway.
