    well, I suppose i'll just jump into my theory.
    We all know what happens when energon is used to clone a 'con, as demonstrated by starscream. but what would happen if one were to use dark energon? this could also be shockwave's introduction. there is unrest on the nemesis, vehicons are fighting, as well as the main cons. megatron asks his old friend shockwave for assistance in the matter and is told to use the cloning machine. he does so, and because there is dark energon coursing through his veins, a clone does not step out of the cloning chamber. however, galvatron does. the cons then split up. one side stays with megatron(soundwave, dreadwing, most of the vehicons) while the others go with galvatron(hardshell, some vehicons)

    It could also be a way to bring in dead end. we don't know for sure that makeshift is dead. if starscream survived, then makeshift could've. we could have knockout use ToxEN to power the cloner this time, deforming makeshift.

    any ideas from you guys?

    I was under the assumption that we already got Galvatron at the end of season one, via Dark-Energon-channeling Megatron.

    Sure, he wasn't Galvatron by name, but he was changed by Unicron and he was using a power that wasn't his own.

    My idea is a bit different with the character.

    I wouldn't have him as a changed Megatron, I would have him as a rival to Megatron. A Decepticon general that's tired of playing by Megatron's rules. Somebody that thinks he can can a better job as leader.

    So he and his most trusted soldiers leave for Earth and form a deal with Starscream. He and Starscream would engage Megatron, while his most trusted soldiers will take on Soundwave.

    Galvatron kills Megatron, and then kills Starscream knowing about his background. With Megatron gone, the Autobots are now in a bit of trouble. They knew how he worked, Galvatron is a complete different issue that they have no clue about.

    that's along the lines of what I was thinking. galvatron would lead the decepticons that don't respect megatron anymore. I'm not saying they will get reformatted, but thy will be under new management.

    I wonder if they could introduce Galvatron with the time-travel thing, have him confront Megatron and the two fight it out or something, like what happened in the comics.

    galvatron might head off to conquer another planet, as megatron has dibs on this one. him and thundertron could cross paths and form a rivalry.

    Having temporarily tanked their franchise by killing off G1 Optimus Prime and also replacing G1 Megatron with Galvatron (even if they were really the same guy) there's no way Hasbro would EVER allow that. Their toys suffered because angry parents had to escort their crying kids from movie theaters. Their storyline suffered because an iconic character like Megatron is damned near impossible to replace.

    They learned that lesson the hard way: if you've got iconic characters you don't kill them until the very END of the storyline. The storyline for the entire franchise too, not some transition to another storyline.

    You could probably learn from their mistake.

    I like this idea. It seems fresh and new. Galvatron's insane behavior can be due to the cloning procedure not working perfectly.

    This. Keep Galvatron as far away from Prime as possible.

    You know what story is amazing despite no iconic characters like Prime OR Megatron?

    IDW's More Than Meets the Eye

    Your entire argument = Invalidated

    I doubt Hasbro sees it your way. They know there would be no IDW, or any other incarnation, without those iconic characters to build the franchise initially.

    Hasbro is driving the franchise, so your "invalidation"* (giggle) doesn't really phase me.

    Irony is, I'm actually a fan of plot over character myself, but it doesn't blind me to the realities of the format, the market, and the experience of the franchise owner. If you want to pretend otherwise, I guess that's what fan forums are for.
