Megatron Leader Class Toy Plus Bio

Joining Optimus Prime and Jetfire as the final Leader class toy is Megatron as revealed by The Arker via Seibertron.com through two galleries. While writer Roberto Orci already confirmed it, if he had not, this would be the final nail in the coffin to verify that Megatron returns for the sequel. Even better, the pictures show off Megatron's bio, providing a few secrets about the movie. Below the bio are a few pictures but full galleries are here and here. For unknown reasons, the website chose to hide the face of Megatron. Overall, this I like this version of Megatron better then his previous incarnation. Thanks to Cenjor for the link.
Rebuilt with parts cannibalized from other Decepticons, Megatron rises once again to lead his army. Though the AllSpark destroyed him once, he can now feel its power coursing through his circuitry. It calls him to seize his rightful place as ruler over the puny planet on which he was imprisoned and destroyed, and from which he will launch his conquest of the universe. Optimus Prime is all that stands between him and victory, and the Autobot leader has done a poor job of hiding himself. At long last, Megatron knows exactly where his enemy is, and he has power enough to destroy him.

  2. megatron tank mode is from brawl. with the power of the allspark inside him he'll be crazy and powerful as galvatron was in G1. maybe megatron nearly kills optimus prime in TF2.

  3. Hmm, I dunno. It's good, but I far prefer the previous version (the Premium one especially with it's lovely paintjob). Why is one arm so ridiculously skinny?

    I do like the chunky tank mode though

  4. hmm..from the bio that i just read..looks like megatron is now a walking junkyard..hahaha..no offence tho..he is one mean mothertruckker..getting him perhaps...

  12. Hey I might have missed a possible post on this but...

    If you become a fan of ROTF on Facebook (can be done via the official ROTF website) there's a video I haven't seen till now, of the new series of Autobots cars 'rolling out', & driving alongside the Pyramids etc.... cool to see. It's interestingly in the 'Fan videos' section...

    ReplyDelete
  13. at this point in time i'm worried he is resurrected only at the end of the film. if i had my choice i would ditch the fallen to make more screen time for Megs.

  15. i seriously doubt the megatron resurrection is at the end.

    Firstly we see him twice in the teaser, once holding Sam down and once again punching/kicking optimus. and in two different forms of scenery, that right there tells me that it's going to be more.

    Most likely megatron is resurrected towards the start of the film. first 30-45 minutes. and the fallen is just like the allspark in the first movie, only part of the final battle and only the last 45 minutes to an hour of the film. This would make the most sense.

    Especially since following the comics megatron would be the only one able to summon the fallen from the looks of it.

  16. from wat the bio seems to indicate it mite be that megs finds and locates prime and hunts him down. or something along those lines.

    We can't say for sure that it was him, it's still a speculation :P

    Megatron returns! I don't know about you guys, but I want to hear this guy go "Yeessss" Like BW Megs in the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Judging by this bio, it seems like Megs might actually destroy Prime in this movie.

    And I'm really digging the look. To me, a lot about this design is reminiscent of the original G1 Megs design.

    ReplyDelete
  20. i've always assumed it was the Fallen punching Prime. but for all we know its Bumble Bee doing it.

  21. ^^^^^wondering the same thing....why cover the face IN the package when the face is ON the package.....unless its different....HMMMM....

  27. They should of renamed him into Galvatron, since he's reincarnated like in the 80s Transformers movie.

    Maybe. Maybe not.

    They should of renamed him into Galvatron, since he's reincarnated like in the 80s Transformers movie.

    What sense would that have, to randomly change yor name for nothing? :P

    Megatron: "Fear me, because from now on I am Galvatron!"
    Optimus: "Uh... Why? What's the point to change your name?"
    Megatron: "Just... because. Shut up. I hate you."

    ReplyDelete
  29. god, glad i'm not the only who hated the Galvatron name change.
    its like if i were to put on a hat and have everyone call me "hat man."

  30. Another ROTF toy not to buy. I`ve made a list if you want to read it:
    1. Devastator (Supreme class)
    2. Ironhide
    3. Bumblee bee
    4. Megatron
    5. One of the twins
    6. Starscream

    I`m serious the molds look crap!

  31. Rebuilt with parts cannibalized from other Decepticons, Megatron rises once again to lead his army.

    Surely this means that some of the transformers have to die for him to live? I really hope that Wheelie was one of those transformers ripped apart to bring him back to life.

    ReplyDelete
  32. i only hope that the ded decepticons that make him up are some of the lesser important ones like scorpinok or frenzy, but hes most likely made up of brawl, blackout and bonecrusher.

    its possible :0

    How about those, that are already dead, like: Brawl und Blackout? ;)

  34. meh still want to see prime + jetfire combined

    P.S dont know wat theyd be called anyone know?

    ReplyDelete
  35. P.S dont know wat theyd be called anyone know?

    Do we really want them to change name after combining...? Let's just call him Optimus Prime with very cool jet pack :P

    ReplyDelete
  36. OP: "Optimus Prime..."
    JF: "...Jetfire..."
    Both: "...Combine!"

    Combination: "We are now...Optimus Fire! No, wait. Jet-Prime! Uhh...Opti-jet Fire-prime...atron. Yeah...."

    I would rather them NOT announce that they are combining in the movie, like they did in the multiple series.

    I still want them to combine though, just...don't make a speech, Optimus. Please!

    At first, I wanted Megatron to be called Galvatron...but now I see that it would be hard to explain why in the film. But I still want Leonard Nimoy to voice him.

    Screw the Prime Jetfire combo.

    Aerialbots will unite to form SuperioN!

    ReplyDelete
  38. If you put a hat on, why would people call you hat man? That is in no way close to relevant in comparison to megatron being called galvatron.

    Megatron dies. Is dead. Unicron gives him a new body == Galvatron. No new body and there is no Galvatron, only a dead megatron. How does this not make sense?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Imagine how cool optimus voice would sound if he merged with jetfire

    ReplyDelete
  40. I wish the movie gets leaked so that counterpunch over hear can see that superion isnt in the film and shut up about it already

    ReplyDelete
  41. Superion wasnt even a good character. besides those stupid decepticon wanna bees the arialbots already have an energon repaint, which means that there isnt going to be a movie toy which means there isnt gonna be a movie superion.

  42. Vector Prime2/22/2009 6:23 PM

    Hmmm, I predict the following. . .
    Starscream: At last I lead the Decepticons!
    Megatron: You? Leader? *insane laughter* This is bad comedy.
    Starscream: Megatron?! Is that you?
    Megatron: Here's a hint!

    lol

    ReplyDelete
  43. ok, abraham lincoln dies, gets a new body, then wants to be called george washington? doesn't make sense.

    since its a machine we abstract it further. if say Prime gets a new hard drive installed, does he change his name?

    by your logic why didn't Bumble Bee change his name in the film when he got the new Camaro body?
    do all robots change their name when they land on earth taking new shapes?

    wouldn't that get confusing? wouldn't you then say there is something more to personality than outward appearance? thus if someone put a hat on, wouldn't it be ridiculous to change their name?

    besides Megatron never died anyway.

    ReplyDelete

    Yeah, it's so ease to imagine, espesialy, that we don't even know what Jetfire voice sound like...

    ^^^ it says from the dead decepticon body so you don't need to include wheelie and wheelie ain't a decepticon anymore.

    I know but wheelie`s design for the film is unfortunately crap so i`m hoping he is killed quickly. I really hoped they would have a wounded insane megatron going around ripping autobots apart and attatching there parts to him but it seems i am mistaken. However has anyone thought he may rebuild himself from parts of the aircraft carrier which was destroyed in a fireball in the explosion and sank into the sea where megatron was buried.

    Espesialy, that there is no way, that Starscream couldn't recognise Megatron in his tank form...

    ReplyDelete
  52. Other than the fact that the box says Megatron, he could have called himself Galvatron just becuase it isn't his original body since he is using parts of other Decepticons.

    Bumble Bee was the same body with a newer different look. Megatron is a "different" body being made up of different body parts, so his name changes to Galvatron.

    Personally, I think it is too soon to change him into a Galvatron. We have only seen him in one movie so far, why would they change him to Galvatron now???

    I don't understand why the face would be covered?

    ReplyDelete
  53. To those who would want Megatron to change his name to Galvatron...

    (Megatron changes body) - Call me Galvatron now!
    (Megatron changes body again) - Call me Ultratron now!
    (Megatron changes body again) - Call me Megatr... Ups, i mean... Gigatron now!

    Seroiusly, why would he need to change his name? It's just stupid and pointless...

    ReplyDelete
  54. Bumble Bee was the same body with a newer different look. Megatron is a "different" body being made up of different body parts, so his name changes to Galvatron.

    ooh so it has to be different different, not just different. gothca.
    cooo coooo.

    this is where the movie mythos shines, they can scrap all this bad logic and treat the story with a bit more respect. while i am not 100% happy with devastator's new look i applaud that they seem to have ditched the idea of extra body parts materializing out of thin air to make his final form. (unlike the g1)

  55. ooh so it has to be different different, not just different. gothca.

    Um, instead of being a prick about it, put more thought behind it. BB never added new parts to his body, Megatron on the other hand is taking a bit of this Decpticon and a some from this Decpticon and mixing an mashing them all up into a new body. He is also changing from a Cybertronian Jet into a Tank design. (althouh that doesn't matter as much since it seems they can change into what ever they want when ever they want)

    If he was using different parts of different Decpticons, then maybe he was having conflicting personalites (not a split personality, but all joined into one so not the same Megatron), hence a new name.

    But Megatron will be still the same persone, but with new look. Just like BBB. So there is still no point for him to change his name.

    ReplyDelete
  57. again you fall into the same trap, if someone puts a hat on (different part) they get a new name. i'm sure optimus wasn't a semi on cybertron, and i'm sure he still had the same name.

    thus appearance, new body, totally different body, different different body has no effect on who a person is.

    until you think there is more to a sentient creature than outside appearance you will never understand.

    ReplyDelete
  58. OK....im gonna solve this...LOOK AT THE F*CKIN PACKAGE!!! DOES IT SAY GALVATRON, GIGATRON, LICKATRON, GAYOTRON, IWANTATRON???? NO!!!!! MEGATRON!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. So this is the last of 3 leader class toys ? Prime, jetfire, megatron... funny how there is no leader class "fallen" isn't it ? And no one has seen the leader class jetfire ? I think we have already, and it was mislabeled "the fallen". We should finds out soon enuf. Makes sense, no megatron = megatron in movie. ..describing the fallen in an interview= no fallen... can't wait to bew proven right, it will b sweet vindication for all us jetfire fans.

  60. Some people and their "Superion" wet dreams.....

    ReplyDelete
  61. Now all we need to see is the final leader. Also is anyone else here thinking that a leader class Jetfire attatched to leader class prime will make him continuously fall backwards. I am!

    Anyway i have a competition inspired by Josh nizzi`s artwork for more details and rules go to the following link (10th post down):

    Oh, teach us all master Yoda, you are so smart and all...

    BTW, did you notice, that we are not discusing "will Megatron change his name in RotF" but rather "why would he do that?"? Or are just to smart to notice that? :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I don't think the argument (if it was an argument) was he should be Galvartron, but giving a reason as to why he could possible change his name IF he did. If he was going to change his name the reason could be (this and that).

    "until you think there is more to a sentient creature than outside appearance you will never understand."

    I don't think you are understanding the posts correctly, cause what you just said is what is being said, that Megatron isn't the same on the inside. (side note, especially if he has merged with the All Spark.)

    If you change or replace over 50% of your body are you still that same person? Yes, since you still have the same state of mind.

    If you add different personalities are you still the same person? No, same body, different states of mind.

    "But Megatron will be still the same persone, but with new look. Just like BBB. So there is still no point for him to change his name."

    What was being said was:
    If you are a Transformer who takes parts of other dead Transformers and also merges with their personalities are you the same Transformer? No. (not that it says he does merge with different personalities, just that is what was suggested as to why he would/could possibly change his name if it was to happen.)

    but their personality and the way of noticing world changed together with the change of the body...

    good-for-nothing - > serious

    And beside, i am not saing, that it wasn't done before, but that it's really stupid thing to change your name randomly like that...:P

    You're right, that box doesn't say Lickatron. I own a Lickatron and the box is nothing like that one.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Being Megatron (movie version) im guessing he will maintain his name, just to taunt the Autobots...i mean....i will be shittin energon if i knew MEGATRON is alive...if with a name change...i will prolly go...Galvatron? who tha hell is that?!

    on the optimus jetfire combo......I would say the coolest name for them is JETCONVOY...my 2 cents.

  68. i got jetfire leader class guess what, his voice is scottish!?!
