Wow. That's brilliantly awful. I love it. Cyberverse, I'm guessing...?

Do we count the Cyberverse subline where everyone only half-transforms into a weird hybrid between robot and vehicle? If so I think those win by default.

If not, that Megatron has to be up there with things like the old Legends-class Movie Jazz that had a second grille and set of headlights slapped into the roof in car mode.

It's cyberverse, yeah, although one of the "spark armour" packs and it pins helicopter parts to the robot mode so that it doesn't look like Megatron at all (looks a bit like G1 Skyquake actually). The Optimus one gets a jet chest piece and an alt mode that isn't completely shit --

-- although Bumblebee comes with Broadside, apparently --

Megatron (and Shockwave to a lesser extent) seem to be uniquely terrible.

Also, if this was about twenty quid rather than twice that, I'd get one for the cutesy Ark;

At least the pretenders had shells to hide that kind of thing.

If Cyberverse doesn't count I'm going to say Titans Return Fortress Maximus because his alt modes were just boring.
