The Bad and Ugly has posted an image of a key robot from Michael Bay's upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. You can see their image after the jump. (Spoilers ahead!)

The image shows a new, invigorated Megatron toy from Hasbro based on the Decepticon leader's reported re-appearance in the Transformers sequel film. Revenge of the Fallen co-writer Roberto Orci confirmed that the bad robot will reappear in a post over the weekend at TFW 2005. In response to a fan question, Orci simply replied: "Megatron returns!"

This would appear to contradict Bay's own statement, to Empire magazine, as reported by "He's not in this movie. That's not misinformation. The tank design you may have seen is just Hasbro coming up with a new toy."

As for the image, Bad and Ugly reports, "This design seems to fit with the rumored new Megatron Tank we got a look at last September and gives more weight to the leaked tank toy we speculated was Megatron." Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opens June 24.
