Hot on the heels of yesterday's leak of Megatron's tank mode from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, we now have two new images of what appears to be design sheets for the vehicle mode of a Megatron toy. The sheets showcase wheels under the tank treads and where the tank's gun should rotate.

See the images below:

hmm. That's... interesting. We'll see how this works out.

I'm mostly curious as to why his new alt. mode is still cybertronian instead of an earth mode.

One reason could be due to how they already had Brawl as a tank, but I'm more curious as to what the STORY/PLOT reason is.

Looks nice, though.

Cool... that seems to be a deluxe version (due to the size of the "performance wheels.") I wonder if there'll be a leader class version.

Is this Wheeljack's work? Who else could raise him from the dead?

First, alien crap spaceship.

We know Megatron can't stand our planet, why would he want to look like something we made?

This looks like a pile of junk.

My question is how does this one source continue to provide all of this secret information? It has been reported that some of the images he posted were removed at the request of Hasbro and Dreamworks. If this is true, how is he still able to “leak” pictures?

I don’t know . . . all of these pictures coming from the same person smells a little funny to me. I think this is all part of the planned misinformation campaign. I am not saying the images are fake, but I think the reason we are seeing them is planned.

Looks like they made a movie version of Armada Megatron.

I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking that.

Find it hard to believe I had to scroll down long enough to see someone else say it, though.

There will be no fun in Transformers anymore if Cybertronians wants to transform into alien-whatever-crap-vehimode.

The more I see the more my expectations keep falling to the ground.

Wow. Guess I'm in the minority of people who really like this design. The Cybertronian modes are more impressive and "alien" than yet another big tank ala Devistator/Brawl. Megatron is huge compared to the others, and an earth vehicle just wouldn't look as impressive or as frightening to humans as this design would.

The first thing I thought of when I saw it was the HK tanks from the Terminator movies.

Also, I agree about the Deluxe size theory. As for a Leader class version, it would only stand to reason that yes, a larger version would be made (maybe with working tracks?) since there are Voyagers of OP and Megs and a Deluxe of Brawl.

I like Armada Megs, I can dig this.

If he's gonna stay Cybertronian, why the need to reformat into tank mode? And what's the extent of his capability to keep on reformatting into other kind of Cybertronian modes?

The jet should be more powerful and agile than a tank on the ground. Should this be considered a "downgrade"?

It's really going to be senseless if this alien tank thing pushes thru.

I was just thinking along the premise of "robots in disguise".

We know Megatron in the first movie had no time nor reason to disguise himself with "local camoflauge" like the other deceps did. So, I'm just wondering what the story line reason will be in TF: ROTF for why Megs doesn't choose an earth mode to "disguise" himself (that is... if these pics are really what he's going to become.)

I agree with the others who said that they're thinking of Armada Megatron. If this tank design is legit and the spoiler of those autobots doing that thing together that the other thread mentions (trying to stay vague in case you avoided it), then it definitely appears that elements of Armada/Energon/Cybertron are making it into this movie.

If it's cool and looks good on camera and doesn't totally go against the TF universe, then I'm all for it. 8)

(Funny how in the Transformers Universe, Megatron's alt mode keeps changing, but yet Optimus Prime, Starscream, and others do not. I just find that interesting when I step back and think about it.)

Perhaps, this design is an "earth mode". It is a possible plot design to have this be a Top Secret tank that the government is working on and Megatron scans it.

I think they can't give Megatron a proper alt mode that really clicks. So he keeps on changing.

This problem started in G1, the gun mode.
