Weapon: Gattling Gun
Our friend Ricky Brigante with Inside the Magic dropped by with a Transformers: The Ride 3D update from Universal Orlando. The construction walls around the new attraction have come down and the Megatron walk-around character is making the rounds! The walk around character speaks several quotes from the various incarnations of Megatron throughout the franchise history. The ride opens later this summer, but a temporary meet and greet area has been set up with alternating appearances by Optmus Prime, Bumblebee, and Megatron. We've embedded a video and a few images from Inside the Magic below, click here for their full coverage with additional images.

Also, is that Frank Welker's voice coming from those clips?

Frank Welker would make sense as I believe he voices Megatron on the ride.

Our friend and theme park enthusiast Rick Brigante with Inside the Magic dropped by to let us know about the latest promotional campaign going on in Orlando for Universal's upcoming Transformers: The Ride 3D attraction. Similar to the campaign leading up to the ride's release at Universal Studios Hollywood, the Fairwinds Credit Union building in downtown Orlando has been outfitted with an 80 foot sign made to look as though Megatron took a stroll right through the building. Universal Orlando has also uploaded a YouTube video to go along with the campaign. We've embedded images from Inside the Magic and the Universal Orlando video below.

Brigante feels a grand opening announcement is just around the corner.

The shape reminds me of ROTF Megatron, which make less sense than using DOTM Megatron since the latter is in the ride.

I swear the Megatron in-ride changes between DOTM and ROTF. Or like a mix of both.

Rides should be the same for the SG & Hollywood one, but my observations were made in the SG ride.

When megatron fires the cannon straight at your face, he appeared to have a cannon arm, yet he had wheels on his legs, and chains around him like in DOTM.

At the end of the ride, where there is a full sized megatron hanging from the ceiling, it's obviously the ROTF model.

I just took a look at footage from the ride on YouTube. Looks like Megtron does have his ROTF cannon, like you say, but the rest of him looked to be his DOTM body.

At the end of the ride, though it's difficult to tell, the model Megatron looks to have a piece of a truck bumper on his torso like his DOTM body had, as well as a six-pack set of abs that the DOTM Voyager toy had.

Our friend and theme park enthusiast Ricky Brigante with Inside the Magic dropped by with a couple of video clips of the interactive Optimus Prime and Megatron walk around characters in action at Universal Orlando. Unlike the previous walk arounds, who only spoke prerecorded lines, these actually interact with guest. Transformers: The Ride 3D opens at Universal Studios Orlando on June 20th!
