SDCC: Marvel: Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends Panel
Ruthless Decepticon leader Megatron has undergone various incarnations over the years as a handgun, a jet, a tank, even a Tyrannosaurus Rex and a gigantic floating head. For his next transformation, he’s turning into something that hits rather close to home for rival Optimus Prime: a truck.
JoBlo has stumbled upon some photos of a new Megatron action figure from the upcoming Transformers: Dark of the Moon toy line, revealing that the transforming tyrant is set to become a truck for Michael Bay’s third movie. For all the things that the Transformers movies have gotten wrong, this one might actually be a cool idea, at least on paper; the potential for an awesome truck battle between Prime and Megs is certainly there if nothing else. But the minute you realize that the tarp spread out over the truck tanker transforms along with Megatron to form a cape and cowl, well, that’s when you know you’re watching Michael Bay’s Transformers.
You can see the movie version of Mega-truck above. Check out the action figure pictures below.
