Movie Megatron Head Design by timshinn73 Movie Megatron Head Design by timshinn73
Here's one more go at trying to find a little G1 love in the TF movie Megatron design. All photoshop. Took about an hour or so. Thanks for taking a look!

EDIT: tweaked the nose, lips and chin a tad. Lips were just too big. Thanks!

2ND EDIT: A few more tweaks on the face and helmet. Thanks again!

3RD EDIT: Last one. Or is it?

EDIT: Reworked the top of the head/ helmet. Too small in earlier versions.

I can't decide between this and the original. Q_Q

Well, It's better than the horrendous design that's ALREADY in the movies...

Please explain why it is horrendous, I mean, I get it that this comment is four years old but still.

well the bayformers in general are hideous

like it looks like someone crinkled up tinfoil and slapped some colors onto it and said "decepticon" yknow

:icontfmugenneedstohappen:
Well that is fine but I personally am alright with the designs with Optimus' design being my favorite, if you don't like the bayformer look, I totally understand and I'm fine with it.

like i can see where people are coming from in the way they like them but imo they just seem to Realistic & Gritty yknow

like if theres a happy medium between cartoons and bayformers designs its gotta be transformers prime bc honestly i like how the designs really show the character and personality of each bot and con in the world

its semi realistic with the right touch of personality for me

:icontfmugenneedstohappen:
Yeah, I understand. I agree with you about Transformers Prime which, while we're on the subject of Transformers. I must admit, after watching the series I can definitely say I'm not that big of a fan of the art style of its sequel series Robots in Disguise (not the old 2001 series) because I feel that they're trying to make it look excessively anime-esque and stylized.

Now don't get me wrong, I like anime-like imagery when it is done right, but at the rate RiD is going especially with some designs like Drift, I don't think it is going to be all that great.

You know, I've read people say "THE REASON WHY THEY CHANGED MEGATRONS FACE FOR THE MOVIE WAS TO MAKE HIM LOOK SCARY"

I honestly find the more human like the face is, the more scary it is. This design holds Megatron's evil intentions in the look of a dignified, yet ruthless leader. It is truly well done.

Yes this may be a great representation, but the movie still proved successful, also I noticed they changed his head design as a running-change, making him more recognizable than the first concept art. Personally, I love the new Megatron, much more monstrous, yet some elements of the original G1 are still there making it all the more great.

No joke: your version of Megatron is not only more faithful to the character, but it is overall better than the rabid Predator-esque version that have been gracing the internet for the New Megatron
