Check out the incredible pics below along with GameInformers inside scoop on the Megatron Character from WFC.
As the leader of the Decepticons, Megatron has a goal that fans of the cartoons know all too well: to win control of Cybertron for his faction and exterminate the Autobots. Throughout War For Cybertron, he will be searching for the means to achieve this end, a mysterious substance known as Dark Energon.
Just in case Megatron's attitude didn't make him imposing enough, his frame certainly should. The whole of his right arm is covered by a giant fusion cannon, a powerful one-of-a-kind weapon that can destroy a whole city block with a single blast. This power will be on display throughout War For Cybertron as Megatron launches powerful attacks against his enemies, including a brutal sacking of the Autobot home city of Iacon.
Though Megatron will greatly reward loyalty, he's also not concerned with destroying supporters the second they let him down. As such, he's got the helpful ability to Mark Targets (an ability he shares with Optimus Prime) but also the more selfish Drain ability, which will presumably allow him to take the power from his enemies and use it to fuel himself. When switching to vehicle mode, Megatron transforms into a powerful hovering tank that also puts his powerful fusion cannon to use.

From pretty much everything that we've heard and they've hinted at this game is a startoff point for the new series and the new toyline. God, I hope i've read the signs right.

I disagree. Remember, this is Hasbro's property so all final designs- whether there are toys involved or not- must be approved by them.
Not that I'm rooting against a toy line...it would totally rock. This Megatron looks more menacing than any I've seen in a while. I find it interesting to note the influence of the Animated Megsy as well; that's where the sharp lines are coming from, more than the movie influence I think.

Early reports are saying June 2010, however that will most likely be pushed back as it gets closer and they realise how much more work they need to do.

Don't totally love it, but willing to go with it for the moment. Vehicle mode is a good idea.
