In both the G1 Cartoon and Marvel continuities, the Cybertronians developed the ability to transform in the early days of the war (in the show, the Autobots did it first; in the comics, the Decepticons did it first).

During the show, we see the Cybertronian Alt-Modes for some of the Cybertronians, but neither the show, or the comics (as far as I can find) ever mention or show what Megatron's Alt-Mode was prior to re-awakening on Earth and acquiring the new Walther P38 mode.

What was Megatron's original Cybertronian Alt-Mode in the G1 continuity?

  • Wikipedia says that his alt's include a cybertronian jet and various non-human vehicles; en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megatron – Valorum Jun 5 '15 at 21:21
  • @Richard The live-action and Prime/Aligned continuities both had him as a Cybertronian jet. G2 was a tank. – phantom42 Jun 5 '15 at 21:37
  • I'm not sure if it was ever seen. In G1 comic issue #1, Megatron is always shown in humanoid form. Given the importance of Megatron's firepower (according to issue #1 his fusion cannon could lay waste to entire cities) it seems likely that his alt-mode was a tank or gun - or like Galvatron he was a triple changer and could transform into either! – EleventhDoctor May 13 '17 at 17:44
