Transformers fans, meet the new Megatron

More designs are slipping out of the Transformers characters that will appear in next summer's movie, directed by Michael Bay. This guy managed to get some drawings of evil leader Megatron and... there's no other way to say this except his mouth looks like an A-Hole (also a little like Predator, I guess). IWatchStuff guy says, "I absolutely hate it as a Transformer design, but love it as the alien rapist in anime porn." Hilarious. What do you think of Megatron 2007?

While the new design seems like a little bit much, the original design looks like he has a gigantic penis. Original box art is after the jump.

Megatron?? No way!

He looks disgusting! It's not Megatron! It's more like an alien. I really hope this is just to scare fans! (Well if it is, It works!)

Changes: okay. But this is just too much. They should make him more like Cybetron Megatron. Or the old G1 we all know. Not an alien which mouth looks like an over size sand mould!!!

Please, let it be a JOKE!

Wow! Now I know where the phrase "Is that a pistol in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?" came from.

His cod piece appears to be a bit smaller.

Stupid move. This is what happens when your CGI artists are dropouts from the design school that brought us the monsters from the Power Rangers.

I'm glad they included a graphic of Meggie in jet mode...or else I would've assumed he transformed into the "tribal" tattoo on some biker bar bouncer...

Hi, Just by looking at the new designs of Michael Bay's Transformers, I can conclude that the Transformers 2007 film will be very bad and awful. Michael Bay's Megatron looks hideous! I am almost postive that Michael Bay will ruin the Transformers franchise just by looking at these pictures of Megatron. I hate Michael Bay!

The 2007 Transformers movie will suck and the proof is right here.

The likeliehood of me seeing this movie is inversely proportional to the number of leaks that I see.

Making BumbleBee a Camaro instead of a Beetle ruined the movie's concept for me. Why couldn't they have used an old Beetle without VW's permission?

Megatron being a jet instead of a gun makes more sense.

I think almost every design I have seen for the Transformers movie makes me either angry, sad, betrayed, or bewildered. The producers are not getting any of the vehicle types right, barely any of the color schemes, and they're making the robots look intentionally awkward. I think Johnny "Number-five is alive!" looks better as a robot than many of the movie Transformers I've seen so far.

I am not sure who they think their audience is for this? If you piss off the kids of the 80's (like myself) whose going to go watch it? The Transformers, while still enjoying some popularity with the current toys and cartoons, were at their peak between '84 and '88 with the first two series of the show and the first animated movie. I would think producers would want to attract us. We are now in our early thirties, we have disposable income that we spend on movies, video games ... and yes many of us still buy cool toys and decorate our cubes/offices with them.

Instead what I am seeing are Transformers that look like they have "A-Holes" for mouths, look awkward in robot form, and match none of the vehicles we've grown to love.

I was being open-minded up until seeing this picture of Megatron. That's really the last straw. Unless the designs leaking out are some kind of cruel joke ... I no longer have any hope for this picture. A picture that I was once so excited for I could not contain myself ... like when a new episode aired when I was 10.
