Transformers the last Knight, Megatron returns?

According to the mysterious video that went viral last week, Michael Bay has provided us with a look at a villain or not just any villain but what appears to be a returning Megatron.


The reveal has caused a stir among diehard Transformers fans due to Megatron returning and not Galvatron which would have made the more logical choice given the last film Transformers Age of Extinction, ah Michael Bay you’ve did it again. The official page of Hasbro Transformers posted an image not long after featuring the Decepticon symbol as well as the caption “Megatron will Return”.


So let the speculation begin as filming for Transformers the Last Knight get’s underway.

Our Top TEN Coolest Decepticon Transformers Ever

The Transformers Franchise houses many a Cool cast and a Fond memory for almost every kid growing up in the 80’s. Its Cast of Character’s, both Autobots and Decepticons is Immense and has a place in every kid’s heart, so narrowing it down to a list of the Coolest Decepticons was a bit Difficult but we still managed so here’s a look at what we feel, are the Coolest Decepticons ever.



Astrotrain is a Decepticon Triple Changer with the ability to alternate between three modes, a Space Shuttle, a Steam Locomotive and his Robot Form. Astrotrain is known to love confusing his enemies and can change size to accommodate his Decepticon comrades. A Bot with a one track mind who im sure needs to get a kick somewhere while transporting his Decepticon brethren.

9. DEVASTATORDevastator

The Combined form or Gestalt of the Constructicons comprising of Scrapper, Scavenger, hook, long haul, Bonecrusher and Mixmaster, all cool in their own right but once they combine to form Devastator, all hell breaks loose. Although a Powerful Warrior, he lacks something upstairs but that’s ok given he does exactly what Megatron wants him to do and that is wreak Havoc on the Autobots.



Trypticon is a larger Deception Transformer with a Tyrannosaurus like appearance but is also known as Decepticon city, his Alternate mode is that of a Battle Station and Decepticon city much like his Autobot counterpart Metroplex who have always had a rivalry. Although Huge in Size and Power, he is also a bit dimwitted according to at least one Continuity such as the 80’s Animated Series.



Octane is another Triple Changer Transformer with the ability to transform into a Tanker Truck and a Boeing 767 jet. A Decepticon Bully who seems to derive pleasure from other’s pain, Octane is also known for being the Decepticons Fuel carrier in charge of giving away and Storing his Comrades Fuel. Has had a few Cool moments in the 80’s Animated Series where he strikes up an Unlikely Friendship with his Autobot Counterpart Sandstorm or being scared to Death by Starscream’s Ghost.

6. BLITZWING468px-Blitzwingg1

Yet another Triple Changer Transformer, you see where I’m going with this? Ha-ha. Blitzwing can transform into a Tank and a Jet fighter. A hardened Decepticon Warrior who happens to be a jerk seems to have seen the light in the Five faces of Darkness when he discovered the Quintessons treachery to ultimately take over Cybertron and had second thoughts on fighting the Autobots, was eventually ex-communicated from the ranks of the Decepticons.



Sixshot or a One Robot Army as he is Commonly referred to is one of the first Six Changer Transformers Capable of Transforming into Six Modes, A Cybertronian Jet, a Cybertronian Car, a Laser Pistol, a Cybertronian Tank and a Flying Wolf. Sixshot is feared not only Amongst the Autobots but also within his own ranks amongst his Decepticon Brothers, capable of putting down an entire squadron of Arielbots as seen in the Transformers Headmasters Cartoon plus he also had a Killer Toy back in the 80’s.



Cyclonus is one of Galvatron’s most Loyal Soldiers, a Second in Command who has the brains to back up Galvatron’s will. Cyclonus can transform into a Cybertronian Fighter Jet and was created by Planet Devouring Unicron much like Galvatron. While Cyclonus is perfectly capable of leading the Decepticons on his own, his unwavering loyalty to Galvatron puts that suggestion quickly to rest.

3. SOUNDWAVESoundwave

Speaking of Loyalty, they do not come more Loyal than Soundwave . Although a Communications officer, his loyalty to his leader Megatron has always ensured him a place in the upper command structure of the Decepticons and also acts as a confidant of sorts to Megatron. Soundwaves alternate mode is that of a Stereo Cassette Player just like his Autobot Counterpart Blaster and much like him, has the ability to eject smaller Decepticon cassettes such as Lazerbeak , Frenzy, Ratbat and Rumble.



Starscream is a high ranking warrior amongst the Ranks of the Decepticons and is as Treacherous as he is clever plus he also happens to Harbor a Desire to Overthrow the Leader of the Decepticons Megatron. Starscream has the ability to Transform into an F-15 Fighter jet just like his partners Thundercracker and Skywarp. Starscream has managed to Lead the Decepticons on more than one Occasion but was Soundly beaten and ultimately met his End at the hands of the Re-built Megatron now known as Galvatron. Still, just for his conniving ways he manages to land into our number two spot for Coolest Decepticons ever.



Megatron is the much Feared Leader of the Decepticons who happens to transform into a Walther p38 pistol which can then be used by any of the other Decepticons to launch their attack. Megatron is Ruthless and is much respected amongst the Decepticons. Megatron after his battle with Optimus Prime in the Great War was Gravely Damaged but still Functional yet Overthrown by Starscream who later Returned Re-built as the Mighty Galvatron at the hands of Planet-sized Transformer Unicron. Galvatron while Intelligent and just as ruthless as Megatron also has an Issue with his Sanity which only got worse when he was thrown into a pit of fire on Char in the Five Faces of Darkness storyline. Galvatron on the other hand can Transform into a laser cannon with immense Power. While it’s Debatable over who was cooler between the two, we would stick to the face of the Evil Deceptions as just plain old Megatron.

Our Top TEN Coolest Autobot Transformers Ever

Bumble bee is one of the smaller Transformers and is thought of as a smaller brother in the ranks of the autobots, his vehicle mode is that of a Volkswagen beetle. While he may be small in stature, he more than makes up for it as a spy using his small form to reach places his larger sized comrades cannot plus his special fondness for the Transformers leading Human element Spike is what makes him ultimately endearing.



Often referred to as Optimus Prime’s right hand man, his special operation’s skill is often used to infiltrate the decepticons and leave them baffled at their wake, considered a music loving autobot who is vastly popular among his brothers in the Ark in most part due to his ability to speak in Slang. His Vehicle mode is that of a hardtop Pontiac Solstice GXP which makes him one of the coolest Transformers there are.



Blaster is another Transformer who’s Fondness for Earth Music as his Alternate mode suggests is that of a Stereo Cassette Player. He’s an Energetic and fun loving Transformer who shares his love for music with the people of earth and is always involved in a bitter rivalry with his Decepticon Counterpart Soundwave. Blaster much like Soundwave also has the ability to eject cassettes which in turn Transform into smaller Autobots.


Metroplex small

One of the if not the Biggest Transformer ever Created. Metroplex transforms into Autobot City, an aptly titled city for the autobots to inhabit which also functions as a huge battle station. Metroplex is even bigger in stature to other large Transformers as one of the combiner teams, Omega supreme or Fortress Maximus. In other Words, The Autobots Ultimate Weapon.



Prowl is the Autobots resident Police Officer who Transforms into a ,you guessed it, Police patrol car. Prowl is also a Military Strategist and is often described by his fellow Autobots as a bit of a Prick and doesn’t get along well with his Autobot Brothers. His Anxious personality and Strictness to follow Military Protocol does not earn him many friends but he still made it onto our list because he sure does look cool right?.



Ironhide is a Long standing soldier in Optimus Prime’s army and is very loyal to said leader, He happens to be one of the Toughest Autobots and one of the Coolest at the same time. Iron hide’s vehicle form takes on a modified GMC truck which also has a water gun where he can shoot any type of Liquid. A no nonsense Transformer, Iron hide may be Gruff but his loyalty to his Leader Optimus Prime is to be commended.



Grimlock is One of the Strongest Autobots who happens to have his own sub-team, the Dino-bots ,although not the brightest, he does make up for it in sheer brute force.His Alternate mode is that of a T-REX and is not particularly fond of the Earthlings and does not care if there are any casualties in his Power mongering ways. Arguably one of the most popular Transformers ever and has earned even the respect of their Leader Optimus Prime. Also one of the coolest, a Sure worthy addition into this list.



A loyal and Trusted Soldier In the ranks of the Autobots who feels no more than just being a Soldier. Was once handed the Autobot Matrix of Leadership due to the Death of Optimus Prime only to be killed by Megatron turned Galvatron and eventually giving way to Rodimus Prime as the New Leader of the Autobots hence why, Ultra Magnus has despite being strong and selfless has always Considered himself a Soldier above all else even though he has earned the respect of both his comrades in the Autobots as well as the Evil Decepticons. His Vehicle mode is that of freight-liner truck car carrier and is surely a welcome addition to the cool club.



Hotrod was a brash and confident Autobot with a hint of arrogance, a bit careless but he eventually matured into the Autobots new Leader Rodimus Prime who is more mature and stronger than when he was just plain old Hotrod. His Vehicle mode is a Dome zero Sports car with flames which gives him the moniker of Cool for that alone while later on when Rodimus Prime, his Alternate mode is that of a Futuristic Truck. Rodimus despite second guessing himself worthy of being the Successor to Optimus Prime has always managed to overcome expectations which earns him the number two spot on this list.



The Strongest and Wisest of all the Autobots, Prime exudes an almost Father Figure stature being Noble and Selfless plus it doesn’t hurt that he’s got a strong moral character and Sound leadership skills which has Earned him his spot as being one of the most Beloved transformers out there, even the Decepticons admire his bravery. His vehicle mode is a Freight-liner Cab-over-engine class 8 truck. Optimus Prime has a strong moral code and pushes for Peaceful co-existence with the people of earth, plus anybody who’s quote is “ Freedom is the right of all Sentient beings “ belongs on number one spot in any list and hence Optimus Prime is the Coolest Autobot or for that matter, Transformer ever.
