alot better. in fact if i squint just right it has a distinct megatron vibe. if anything this has made me realise i can forgive what ever they do to the body as long as the head is recognizable, like prime. optimus has a totally different body but same head we all know and love and thats what megs needs. doesnt have to be exact but you should know who he is without too much effort (that said i still want that fusion cannon :grin: )

Motto: "The more you know, the less you don't know."
hmmm, definately a step in the right direction.

I can get used to the look, I just wish he had more colour aps thats all. I think the thing that bothers me most are the lack of an arm cannon and just the overall bland appearance.

this image might help... i mean come on, just look at skorponok-wannabe on the right, or bat-ears at the top-right, or even worse -transforms-into-a-giant-head at the top-middle

uhm... you're only pointing out the shitty megatrons we've had since g1, armada sucked, rid for a large portion sucked (with the exception of scourge, and maybe ultra magnus) and don't even get me started on the rediculousness of beast machines. And before you bash me for being a g1 purist, I'll tell you right here I'm not. Beast wars was my favorite show, followed by the originals, and then I really couldn't care less after that (beast machines could have been so much better, but they made stuff way too weird and absolutely rediculous).

And plus you're wrong about movie megs being the closest to g1 since g1. Classics megatron anyone? even g2 megs is closer to g1 megs than movie megs. (Not that you opinions aren't valid, I just don't share the same opinion. However, neither of us are right or wrong. So its all good :grin: )

Okay back to the topic at hand.

This is definetly an improvement to the design, and getting to the point where I can live with this crazy design. Only a few touchups and modifications and I'll have no problems with it.

He still is pretty ugly though... but he's starting to be better than starscream (god i wish they'd use a different mold for starscream, because his current mold absolutely screams a vehicular update for waspinator).

*EDITED* (Thanks kjeevah for correcting my mistake. :grin: God do I hate doing stupid grammar things like that :oops: )

sorry to do this but i have to correct you, the expression is 'i couldn't care less', meaning that it is not possible to care any less than you currently do, ie. you dont care.

saying that you could care less is saying that you do care about it..

i blame some idiot american in the past slurring his couldnt into a could and it being spread around from then on.. but either way, you should say 'couldnt', 'could' makes no sense at all, and in fact means the opposite of what you are trying to say

Pedantry! I doff my hat to you, Sir.

I'm not being funny, I wholeheartedly agree with you. "Could care less" doesn't make sense in this context. I might add that this comes up quite frequently, and in fact appeared on this board not a week ago. "[...] idiot american [...]" might have been a bit harsh, though.

Anyway, this is off-topic. This Megatron does look somewhat better.

Of course I don't like movie Megatron, but I like your pic, fits where the movie is going. You know what brothers me even more about the movie design? His head. It's not soild enough, you can almost see a small being inside. I hate those bitty ugly pointy teeth, and no matter how hard you try to change the design, it's still not Megatron. Maybe in the film, the character, and whoever will voice him, will save Megatron. Then finally maybe we can say that's Megatron alright, somewhere in that mess. Wrong body, wrong head, but it's Megatron?

Good job on the pic thoug, His eyes bring him more together.

Damn, I still want a huge arm cannon.

*edit

You know, when I was a kid, the way I related to Megatron was by getting any type of tubing, and taping it to my arm. I think kids would do the same thing if given the chance. I see a huge marketability in something that could attach to a kids arm as a weapon. It can be as techy as you like, and still be a gun in a kids eyes. And, since it doesn't simulate a real firearm, no orange tip. Put a damn flashlight bulb in it and have it fire from a handheld trigger. Have it make noises.

At this point, I'm ok with the head. Just give him the damn arm cannon already!

wow, I'm nit picky about those kinds of things too, and I myself did something so dumb (Man do I feel hypocritical right now):oops: I'm sorry for the bit of confusion there, and I do thank you for the correction. :D

Lol... I was in SEVENTH grade and had painted a paper towel roll black, followed by taping it to my arm. X D

hehe, yeah I remember in grade 8 I somehow mounted an industrial size roll on my arm, put bottle rockets in it..lit it. THen I aimed it waaaay down the block at my friend who was fixing his bike.

He laughed cause he saw us from so far away, like it would ever hit him..."har har"


it did.

Weapon: Atom-Smasher Cannon
The first head at the top, is starting to grow on me; however, I am still bothered by one thought - why doesn't the head have a solid helmet? Why didn't the designers just make a normal helmet? It would have looked less strange and played better homage to Megatron.

edited for grammar error and clarification.

He'd be an incredible player model for the upcoming Unreal Tournament 3, but still doesn't seem to make much of a leader for a robot army.

It's acceptable, at any rate.

I like it better ,but I still don't really care for it. I'm going to wait and see it on the big screen ,moveing before I completely make my decision. I like the silver and blue ,part of my problem with the design was the lack of contrast. I really would like a big gun either over the shoulder on attached to one arm ,but that makes less since because his current alt mode is a jet. Maybe if sequels are done his alt mode will change to something with a big gun and he will get a BFG.
