Universal Studios Hollywood today debuted a new addition to Transformers: The Ride 3D in the form of the villainous Megatron, a larger-than-life walk-around character joining the California theme park.

Several Twitter users spotted this Decepticon, posting pictures of him on the lower lot in front of the attraction:

Megatron joins Optimus Prime and Bumblebee as walk-around characters reaching heights far above Universal Studios Hollywood guests, available as photo opportunities, as seen during the ride’s grand opening in May 2012:

Universal Orlando is currently building a version of Transformers: The Ride 3D to open later this year at their Universal Studios Florida theme park, where Optimus Prime and Bumblebee were also on hand for the official announcement of that project:

    I just wish these robots weren’t so ugly looking. The cartoon versions from the 80s had faces that I could see…these things from the Michael Bay movies are just a jumble of CGI stuff. The Decepticons in particular hurt my eyes to look at.

    I hope they reboot the Transformers with better looking robots in the future.

        Wow. Did somebody have a bad day? Did widdy liddy gizmo cwy because the bad mans called his new toy a bad name? The new Transformers’ faces hurt my eyes, too.

        My favorite part of this reply? This guy calls somebody a “wimp” for not liking the new Transformers. Because here’s nothing more manly, tough and rough than adult men who love the new Transformers movies?

    Disneys masterpiece show tron uprising is about to get cancelled!! Get over to and sign the petition if you think the show deserves another season(which it does)! TRON LIVES!

  5. Curious, do you know if Stan Winston’s effect school designed these?

  6. The LEGOLAND Florida theme park looks really cool for my husband and I, we really love LEGOS so we are eager to exploring the park and see all the interesting LEGO Models.
