Default Honda S2000 Alternator = Megatron?!?

This just in - I mailed Archonia (the online store where I buy my Binaltechs) about the Honda S2000, and they replied the following:

Quote:
Apparantly the Honda will be called Megatron (again a rumour).
So nothing solid here, but I thought I'll post it anyways...

If that's Megatron I'll buy all the members of these forums the binaltech version.

LOL just kidding. I believe it's highly doubtful. But it was nothing official anyway.

I can hear the distant rumble of complaints already.

I'd like it better if he's Blaster. He looks like him anyway, even with the chest plate.

I'd rather see something more special as Megatron. But the fan boys will whine that he's not a gun, no matter the body he resurfaces into.

Awe, I was looking forward to that.

That'd be nice. It'd make sense, since his engine becomes a big gun, and Megs tends to have some big guns.

The only thing about it though...according to the Binaltech story...there should be no need for Megatron to get a BT body. He's back on Cybertron, so he was not effected by the cosmic rust like the Transformers on Earth will.

I think I'll be disappointed if it is Megatron. Only time will tell.

I dunno. He could've gone to Earth for a routine check on his Decepticons. Either that, or the BT process may have made them stronger, so he chose to upgrade.

I don't think anyone would have put Grimlock & as a BT, with so many other autobots being cars to choose from. Takara must have a reason for this even if it's just to get us talking.

If they were still to make Megatron a gun but he wasn't a realistic size, would that be commercialy viable?

Actually though, if they were to make an Altenator Megs there has to be some cars what would look well sweet for him.

I am trying to think of one though....... Since the black Viper was made into Dead End.

I'd think something more intimidating, like a Hummer or H2 would be pretty cool for Megs.

Actually you could have a point. They could test out if we are actually warming to the new designs. They would also have their foot in the door as far as movie licensing.

Also they know the film will be put under scrutiny by the fans. If we accept Megatron as a car it gives them loads of options.

They did say that they were thinking or they are working on other BT release which would be planes etc, so this might not be megatron but I recon he probally will turn up soon maybe as a tank.

If this is megatron is master piece convoy the autobot leader in the line or can we expect a BT convoy aswell?

Their reasoning iis very simple: Grimlock is a very popular character, and even a lot of folks outside the fandom remember him. It can't hurt business to make him into a Binalternator.

Why, whatever would make you think that people in the fandom would be so petty as to actually complain about something so trivial as a new alternate mode?

Oh...wait...never mind.
