Megatron, A Tank?

can't decide?As you all well know, The Transformers project (with Michael Bay at the helm) is underway and the writers are taking extra precautions on getting the story right. Their job is basically two-fold. 1. Getting the approval of the core fanbase (that's us) 2. Not alienating the rest of the human race (that's you). he latest development came as sort of a shocker to us rabid eagle eyed fan boys (well, it's more of a WTF?) When asked whether Megatron will retain its character in the original cartoon as the Decepticon leader transforming in to a shrinking hand gun, this is what they had to say...

I don't know how we can do it without making Megatron a tank...that's probably how where we're going to end up.

A tank? Where on earth did they come up with that? First off, there already is a Transformer that turns into a tank (forgot it's name) and secondly, the dillemma of him having to shrink to fit into a Decepticon's hand was resolved decades ago, they turned him into Galvatron, who turns into a bad-ass cannon. They don't necessarily have to turn him into Galvatron straight up, its just that turning him into a tank just does not feel right. Am I right?

Props to Egotastic and themovieblog for the link.

Yes, you're right... I may not be much of a fan boy since being but-raped by the first Transformer movie, but Megatron needs to at least resemble a cannon of some sort.

Unless they're going with a 'movable canon' or something... hell, I don't know. I doubt Michael Bay can pull it off anyway.

Thanks Mojotek, I don't know about the first Transformers movie being a suckfest. I kinda enjoyed it actually. But I do agreee with the movable cannon thing. What if Prime, moving at 250mph, runs straight towards Megatron shooting lasers and Megatron stands still in place going OMG!!!
