Our friend Ken Christiansen continues to reveal his Aligned Continuity concept art. Earlier this week we got a look at his Optimus Prime truck mode, today we get Megatron in tank form. Click here to visit Ken's blog, Bad Flip Productions, to read more. Ken can also be found on facebook at: Bad Flip Productions

Last but not least, don't forget to visit Ken at this year's BotCon Artist Alley!

Ken Christiansen wrote:The assignment was to envision a near-future tank, so I did a few quick sketches, got feedback from Siebenaler, and actually only did a colored line art pass, because of a time crunch. After the presentation and following feedback, I was asked to render it fully, with no changes, along with the Prime truck, that was also initially done as colored line art, for the same pitch.

Are you kidding me. That's the best Megatron alt mode I ever saw.
I hope that these are going to be the movie figures. Hasbro pull out all the tricks for that figure. Make sure it has everything good.

I'm waiting for these live action movie toys. I'm going to open a savings account just for those figures, lml.

AND PLEASE, I NEED A LEADER MEGATRON.

Hasbro seems to like the idea of Megatron being an earth tank with a G1 color scheme, so why isn't this tank on TV or store shelves? A retooled, recolored and enlarged universe G2 Megatron is a quick and easy step towards turning this concept into reality.

I was talking about retooling and enlarging the deluxe mold to give it two hands and a proper fusion cannon. Upsizing the legends figure is too cheap a move, even for Hasbro.

Hmm...



...Maybe. I have this one. It's not exactly the best in the world (the Classics Voyager is much more fun), but it makes a decent Classics Megatron if anyone missed out on the Voyager. Neuter the Beast Wars Dinobot gimmick, give him an elbow joint and a hand. It might work, but I'm a little skeptic about it.

I would love to have a Megatron based off this design very much. Just... not with the movie aesthetic.

I see that you do not like this gorgeous Megatron concept. Its sounds like you want your Megatron figure to be like that not good flying leader Megatron from the 2007 live action movie and you probably want it colored like that rainbow cybertron leader Megatron.

We're saying that we want a tank Megatron. I'm not understanding the logic of this statement. :HEADHURTS:

We want Megatron in SOME kind of REAL earth mode, and not a flying scrap heap.

Eh, I wouldn't say that. Prime Megatron's jet mode looks cool, it certainly pulls it off much more effectively than the 2007 movie did. >:oP

So far, we have had two designs from the Aligned Continuity and both are clear winners. Why are they able to produce these awesome concept art but can't get the three main forms of products to look like them (toy, comic, show)? The point of the Aligned Continuity was to bring everything together wasn't it?

No not intended for you Mindmaster even though you don't like those great movie figurs. And I know why cyberton Megatron was colored like Unicron but I just didn't like it. I was talking to 84forever cause he said something about it being the G1 color ang being a earth mode.

Revenge of the Fallen Bludgeon, among others, were good. I just don't like the fiction because the robots come as unemotional and obnoxious in my opinion. And the Dark of the Moon toyline just wasn't good.

A Generation One Megatron in a tank form has been done before, using the aforementioned Classics Deluxe.



Granted, it's not grey, but it looks good in white.

That's good, at least you like one movie figure. And that black and white and red Megatron you just posted color scheme looks kind of alrit. I wouldn't mind if the concept Megatron had those colors but not rainbow colors. This is the 2014 live action movie not the 80s and 90s cartoons.

This reminds me of the tank mode Megatron has in the Transformers Legends mobile game.

Oh, its not going to be a good ole bayformer. But in my opinion Sabrblade. They shouldn't use this awesome Megatron concept for anything other than a 2014 live action movie leader class Megatron. Unless they come up with an even better concept.All the current leader Megatrons have something holding them back from being good figures.

Again, this design isn't for Movieverse Megatron at all. It's for the Megatron from WFC/Exodus/Prime/Exiles/FOC/etc.

Plus, Movie Megs is dead. Twice over. Bringing him back again for Movie 4 would just be repetitive, unimaginative, and boring. Let some other Con leader get his turn in the sun. Movie Megs was sick of the war by Movie 3 and died without putting up a fight. Let him rest in peace, finally free from the turmoil of his warmongering actions.
