Optimus Primal vs. Megatron:


Affiliation: Maximal
Function: Maximal General
Alternate mode:common vampire bat (Desmodus rotundus)

Weapon: Scimitars

First cartoon appearance: None

First comic appearance: None

From the 'wishful thinking files'!  Here's what we would've liked to have seen of this incarnation of the character:

Profile: A high ranking Maximal, Optimus Primal was sent on a mission of extreme importance. A Predacon dissenter has taken the name of Megatron, one of the most evil leaders in Transformer history, and embarked on a mission of war. It is believed by the Maximal Imperium that he may cause an uprising in the peaceful ranks of the Predacons. Optimus Primal has shown himself worthy of command to Lio Prime as well as the Maximal Imperium itself. A compassionate being, Optimus Primal is reminiscent of another time in Transformer lore when Optimus Prime led the heroic Autobots in defense of the universe against the malevolent Decepticons. This mission would lead Optimus Primal across space to Earth, thousands of years after the Beast Wars, to discover the secret mission of Megatron. Infiltrate the cave base of Megatron on Earth in the area known as South America and report your findings to the Maximal Imperium. The fate of Cybertron could well rest on him accomplishing his mission.

Abilities: He is schooled in various warfare tactics and is an excellent leader.

Weaknesses: Optimus Primal does not feel that he is leadership material, but others in command believe in him.

Strength: 10
Intelligence: 10
Speed: 10
Endurance: 10
Rank: 10
Courage: 10
Firepower: 7
Skill: 10

Bibliography of significant appearances:  There would be SO many more Optimus Primal toys to come, it's strange that the first ever made zero appearances in the cartoons or comics. 





Affiliation: Predacon
Function: Predacon commander
Alternate mode:American Crocodile (Crocodylus acutus)

Weapon: Gun
Japanese Beast Wars name: メガリゲーター Megalligator

First cartoon appearance: None

First comic appearance: None

Profile: Disturbed by the rule of the Maximals, this Predacon has taken the name of Megatron in respect of the great Decepticon leader. He has embarked on a mission as the self-appointed savior of the Predacon race. He feels that the Maximal Imperium is not treating everyone equally during the Pax Cybertronia, but rather is subjugating the Predacons and any other bots they deem dangerous. Once a high ranking officer in the Predacons and even a token standing in the Maximal Imperium, Megatron has journeyed many levels of Cybertron and various worlds in search of artifacts and datatracks concerning the original Megatron. His latest scheme has taken him across space to the land known as South America on Earth. He has set up base inside a cave and has taken the form of an alligator to disguise himself. He knows that the Maximal Imperium is afraid of him, and that if he could generate a following he could overthrow them. He knows that a lone Maximal has been sent to spy on him and Megatron wants to destroy him.

Abilities: He is very skilled at planning and following through with difficult schemes.


Weaknesses: Megatron has a one-track mind that blinds him to outside circumstances.


Strength: 10
