    I'm not sure if this has been brought up yet, but has anyone else noticed how similar the Apex armor from transformers prime looks to the AOE Galvatron design? Is it just me???

    Now that you point it out I do some very vague similarities but not that many to be honest.

    I've noticed it but I think they're trying to jab at Pacific Rim a little design-wise.

    With you on that! Definite similarities apart from the head on the pic i was looking at just now you'd almost say it was a cartoon image of movie galvs! Nice.

    I'll fork my eyes out if Galvatron is being piloted by someone as annoying as TFP Miko.

    I thought he looks a bit like Galvatron from Beast Wars 2 with the horned head crest and circular shape on his chest. But I first thought Pacific Rim as well.

    I'm torn on the idea of Galvatron with a human pilot. It doesn't seem fair, but it would be badass.

    But everything in my pOV points to Galvatron being a Nemesis Prime.

    Well I think that will depend on whether Galvatron is a badass, or a chump like his predecessor.

    You're right, I can see a bit of Gypsy Danger in Galvatrons design, but I'm hoping it's more of homage than a jab; especially considering Jeigers seem to last longer in a battle, while Bayformers can't.

    This ^

    While the design aesthetics are similar to the Apex Armour - its more another jab at Pacific Rim along with the Yeager's.

    Thinking the movieverse galvs is designed to cover multiple bases simultaneously.....we all seeing things in him that are relative yet from far flung ends of the transforers spectrum.....even down to the early motormaster speculation.

    Mmh, the design is rather popular. Circular power source in the middle that powers the mech;

    Yes I guess it does.
