    Spoilers to be spilled in this thread, so no spoiler tags needed.

    You have been warned!!!





































    Now, since Megatron "blew up" with the space bridge, it is assumed that he was destroyed.

    But Transformers fans know better than that.

    However, what if Megs was severely- mortally- jacked up? What is coursing thru his robo-veins? Dark Energon.

    What is Dark Energon?

    The Blood of Unicron.

    What did Unicron do to Megs in prior shows?

    Galvatron.

    Thoughts?

    If they bring in Unicron later in the series, this would be WAAAY to fast to introduce Galvatron so early. And unless its a basic recolour, they're not getting the most out of the Megatron render.

    The Megatron render- while cool in its own right- was pretty basic and simple. Could be a throw-away to make room for a more geometrically heavy Galvatron model.

    It's too early to do so.

    It seems like they are quite willing to toss away models if it gives them the right impact. Ref: Cliffjumper.

    However, I think Hasbro has (FINALLY) learned its lesson about changing the name of a character from one of their two-three most popular names to a less-popular one. Remember, now they are selling repaint Megatrons as "Shadow Blah Blah Megatron" and it apparently works just fine. This literally means that the Galvatron name has served its purpose. Re-invent it for a different character, if at all.

    Uh, no it wasn't. At all, really.

    It's actually harder to make smooth rounded surfaces that basic geometric blocks.

    If Galvatron shows up, I want him to be a seperate entity from Megatron.

    I second the separate entity notion.

    Maybe Megatron could expel the dark energon from his body and from that, Unicron creates Galvatron.

    As a guy who has dabbled in 3D, I know that smoothing surfaces isn't that big of deal.

    Remember, in Animated Megatron blew up in like the first few episodes, and returned after a season, so maybe they'll do that, give Megs a break for a season and make him return (again)

    No, WFC Megatron's toy bio says he likes to change his alternate mode a lot.

    Anyway, if Galvatron appears I want him to be Marvel UK's timetravelling loon.

    Too early to tell. But with a nod to Unicron so early I have a feeling he'll show up. And Galvatron perhaps at some point perhaps after consuming so much dark energon or perhaps haven given power from Unicron. Who know. Though, I am happy if her was a seperate entity. There could be evil clones of the Autobots as well like in Shattered Glass.

    Galvatron is not happening. I'm sick of that dumb conversion.

    Oh look I'm a repaint of Megatron.

    If Galvatron ever shows up he better be a whole new friggin 3D Model or character entirely like in IDW.

    I'm sick of character repaints.

    Make Galvatron a separate entity entirely. This way Megs And Galvatron can tear eachother apart and Starscream can pick off the remains.

    I'd be more inclined to believe that the Spacebridge explosion just sent Megatron elsewhere in the Universe and he's just floating out there slowly recovering

    I'd prefer them to do Galvatron like in IDW, where he's a separate character to Megatron

    I'm pretty sure Megs is back on Cybertron with his undead Legions.

    He'll pop back up toward the end of season 1. This season is gonna be all about Starscream shining as a leader for a change. :) 

    At least....I hope.

    I'm thinking that Megatron and Galvatron could perhaps both be FROM megatron but exsist at the same time. Noting the dark Energon and what we know of it's nature and side affects Perhaps Megatron did survive but taking a twist of OP/NP law instead Megatron's shadow is created and this could be galvatron. Galvatron being the same as megatron in almost every way but atleast 5X as insane as his original being. Parhaps Megatron and Galvatron could battle it out several times in the series. With 'Galvatron's Legion' instead of 'Megatron's Legion'

    I know this probably won't happen but it would be a cool twist.:thumb

    I'm not sure we'll we'll see Galvatron soon, if at all. I'm pretty convinced that Megatron was able to make it through the Space Bridge just fine.

    Megatron could develop a dissociative personality disorder who calls himself Galvatron, maybe without knowing of each other! Megatron being sane and as Galvatron being insane, although that makes him somehow insane in general. That would be another idea of him having change his alt mode often.

    That makes more sense than my attempt at a possible explaination.
