I think the odds have it. Megs is on for the next big toy for the next few months, in his G1 form and coming soon in his Live Action form. Remember and promote the biggest face of evil no matter what shape he takes.
I chose Megatron mostly because there's nothing really important going on with the others right now. And this is based mostly on the upcoming MP-05 Masterpiece Megatron due in stores soon. (MP-05 rules compared to the G1 version- I want one!)
Yes, this is the 30th-anniversary of "Star Wars", and I certainly agree that Vader should get some time in the sun this year as one of- if not the- iconic characters/images in sci-fi film history.
Godzilla? No doubt there's yet another film on the way (mind you, I'm not complaining), but I'm not feeling a buzz right now. (Oh, BTW, for as campy and cheezy as it was, why doesn't the US-remake Godzilla ever get any love? It was certainly on the level as some of Gojira's early ones!)
Scopedog? No interest there for me.
Dairugger XV? No interest there for me.
I also like Megatron as a banner illustration but I would like to see Godzilla first. Why? For one thing Godzilla is one of the most iconic figures in pop culture. Secondly robots are already well represented in the banner, but monsters aren't. Darth vader is ok, but there are plenty of Star Wars sites that give him his due.

I agree with having Megatron. Reason being that there will be much hype with the upcoming movie this summer which I hope most of you are looking forward too. It's gonna be mad cool. Use the Megatron pic from the Japanese reissue that's a strong image, but unfortunately he won't be a gun... You need an artist to take a crack at the banner give me the info I'll do it. Jonathan
