Really my own ultimate Megatron is divided up between Classics/Henkei Megatron at number 2 and the Generations Leader Combiner Wars G1-style Megatron at number one.

It was a pleasure man! Wasnt easy, probably the hardest list, but I think its a fun result with lots of diversity. And I am glad you also think Henkei Megatron is great! Glad we got one you like on our list :)


Well, I do like ALL Megatron incarnations technically. I mean some I favor more than others too. Example, I prefer IDW G1 Megatron over say G1 Cartoon Megatron.

Having fun is all that matters. Keep up the good work. :)

Kanrabat made me think of this, but what about the Cybertron Leader Megatron? I can't remember which list, but he made a list, and he appears to be a great mold. I'm also thinking it was Cobotron who got him and showed off how awesome he was. Considering he manages to fuse parts of Unicron to him and pulls off 3 pretty good molds with a super sweet car mode, he's also a good consideration.

Glad you like it, but I can't. I keep mine by principle, but I'm so, so disapointed with this toy. Sure, the "batmobile" mode look great. But the robot and transformation is disapointing. My main gripe is that Cybertron Megatron is neuteured by all the gimmicks he have. That HUGE backpack of his could have been used to give him better proportinate arms and upper body. Right now, he look like he only had Legs Days at the gym.

He really pale in comparison to the better excecuted Leader Optimus. Yes, Cybertron Optimus too have a big backpack in super mode. However, that litteral backpack is very well used and everything work. Poor leader Megatron don't use his for nothing. Him and his dinky little arms.

Great list :-) though personally I would of separated bw megatron as I class him as a completely different character. My favourite though is still Animated Leader Megs, aside from the helicopter cockpit kibble I can't sing his praises enough. He stands tall and imposing and looks ready to deal with any autobot that stands in his way. It was him and lugnut that made me want to start collecting animated again :-)

I feel that armada megs should of had some shout out as he is amazing for a brick :-P tons of fun to play around with.

Hopefully I can track down a gigatron at some point to go against my fire convoy...

Great pics. :D I need to get me one of little DotM Megzy's for my desk. Got two Cyberverse Optimus Primes recently (regular and battle steel) and they need a Megatron to beat up. I'll try find a Cyberverse Sentinel Prime too. :)


EDIT: hm not so easy to find on eBay especially with trailer. Much easier to find the Voyager one which is great (but out of scale with the other cyberverse figs on my desk). Hope I get lucky and find him at car boot sometime. :P

Agreed ! Hence why he is in the honourable mentions.

Overall, this was a great idea for a list, Willy J! ;)^ :APPLAUSE:

Thanks a bunch Rodimus :D And if that Voyager Megatron was made as a leader (with the appropriate extra detail for that class), then it would have totally made the top 5. the DOTM Voyager Megatron is my personal favourite movie Megatron by a long shot. Its a great transformation and looks awesome in both modes.

Is there an official reason why there wasn't a Leader class DotM Megatron? It's frustrating trying to recreate the end scene when you gotta buy all voyagers to make it work when most probably got the Leader Sentinel rather than his Voyager version. I love Ironhide but found it odd that he got a Leader class figure (maybe as a memorial piece) when Megs didn't.

Id lose leader megs and transmetal 2 megs and replace them with WFC & deluxe beast wars megs, those are 2 way better figures in my opinion. Also for classics megs flaws you forgot to mention his giant wings, by far the worst thing about that figure.

The list was put together from opinions of the entire Seibertron staff including the site owner who owns every single Megatron toy ever made. For the 80s, the engineering on G1 megs is as spectacular as his perfect alt mode. There is also a legacy factor and the idea of a toy representing this iconic character. You dont have to agree of course, but saying which ones you think are better would be nicer than insulting the site owner and staff.

I like every Megatron figure that doesn't transform into a gun. Useless & stupid alt mode! I despise G1 Megatron, always have. My favorites are

#2 Combiner Wars
#3 Prime Darkness & Final Battle
#4 Generations stealth bomber
#5 Revenge Of The Fallen

Thrilling 30 Megatron is horrible, his transformation is SUPER fiddly and his articulation is so stiff and horrible. His gun also breaks and easily and the tabs don't work. Why do so many people like him? I was very disappointed with it.

RTS Megatron gets props for getting a release of Megatron in proper gun mode (not a nerf blaster or whatever) from Hasbro (not Takara like the Masterpiece) in the 21st century. Yeah, he's small and despite that still has the stupid orange tip. He's still awesome and unexpected and I love it.

Energon Megatron only fails at being best Megatron because he's really best Galvatron.

CW G1 Megatron is likely the best Megatron that will ever be released at mass retail.

U-G-L-Y Cybertron Megatron ain't got no alibi, he's ugly.

Strange thing, I don't just think it's ugly, I utterly hate all three modes (or two and a half really) yet still think it looks pretty good in the Galvatron redeco.

Oh, I agree. The Galvatron version ironically have the G1 Megatron colors and I think it work really, really well. Worth owning actually. I have the legend version and it's not that bad. Seriously lacking paint though.

Thing is they don't even look like wings, especially since he doesn't have the excuse of turning into a jet or spacecraft they're clearly giant NERF gun pieces to clamp around him like a shell since his robot mode transformation doesn't really turn into anything. It's main reason why, when I had classics Megatron, I took those 'wings' off and left it in robot mode (they could still clamp on again around the transformed robot if for some reason I wanted to turn him into a toy gun again). It just doesn't work for the character at all. I've never liked Megatron as a gun but as a NERF gun (of which I have, it's the NERF Maverick... I sometimes shoot noisy people with darts from my window when I'm annoyed) just really kills the appeal of the toy despite a decent robot mode (without the 'wings').

These topics are pretty interesting though in showing that despite all being Transformers fans we all have really different tastes and ideas of what makes a good Transformers toy and design even when it comes to a particular character. Does mean that Hasbro and Takara can pretty much NEVER design a 'perfect' figure as it's impossible to create one that appeals to us all. :P

And I do love that one (as shown in my sig) but when you try doing the 'Luke, Leia, Han trio' from the animated movie with Gen Arcee and either classics or (presumably cos deluxe class) titans versions of Hot Rod, Springer towers over them too much and makes me wish he was at least a bit smaller. :P

Even in my sig image it looks odd to see Springer as big as Grimlock (and movie Prime and Bludgeon)

I've always felt there have never been enough decently sized Megatrons out there. A lot of the good ones, IMO, have either been deluxe or leader class which never scale well with my primes. Though I have a big, massive even, soft spot for Transmetal 2 Megatron. I have vivid memories of seeing him in the store, right around Christmas time, thinking that dragon was the coolest thing in the world. I didn't even know what he was from at the time, but I loved him and nearly had a heart attack when I saw him again Christmas morning. That guy's probably the reason I got into transformers. I really wish there would be a re-release of that mold since mine, being a stupid kid at the time, broke.

I sent the e-mail out April 11th 2015 so all news staff and site admins. They gave me their picks and I complied the ones that came up most often. And I have consulted you since, right? like for the best Rodimus/Hot Rod list (which is a waaaaaaaay easier list that this one).

I am glad people have pointed out how hard it is to come up with the best Megatron toys, we can see it happen here too, Henkei/United Megatron is maybe not everyone's favourite, but it is the toy that comes up most often when looking at a good toy that does that character justice and keeps many characteristics and designs. This was by far the hardest list to do because there are so many different interpretations and tastes involved. I see a lot of love for the movie versions here, which is great, but we all know there are many G1 fans who hate the films. Same goes for him being a gun. Some believe that is the only alt mode to give the character justice while others think it is the silliest alt mode possible.

So yeah, hard list. Great character to collect though.

And Shajaki, thanks for that list!!!!!!!!!! I love how you also wrote the flaws.

If we're being honest only Beast Wars, Animated, TFP and IDW have a character to collect

But yeah, generally agree. Megsy used to kinda stick out among the original Decepticons as honestly being kinda the most boring one tbh. Starscream was the treacherous schemer second-in-command; Soundwave was the loyalist with a ton of minions at his beck and call; Megatron... uh... Megatron lead them, I guess. Eh. Even Rumble had more character than him. RUMBLE.

So it's nice to see that in recent years - and Beast Wars, though really that's kind of a different guy - he's become a much more fun and varied character. Literally in my top 3 characters rn thanks to IDW. He's really come a long way.
Complete and utter IDW DOOP-onwards Transformers fangirl. Also loves Beast Wars, Animated, TFP and that one TFCC story that made Alpha Bravo and Offroad great
