    Anyone know a good drawing of TFA Galvatron? I am building a custom one, and would like some ideas.

    Stupid Question, but since Earth Megatron is a rebuilt Megatron, shouldn't he be called Galvatron? sorry, just had that thought pop into my head early today, then I saw your post. I'd be interested in seeing some designs too.

    Lol good point, no thousand and thousand in the fandom will slap their own forehead realizing we already have Galvatron in a sense. Just as Optimus died in TFRO just like he did in the 1980's movie, this could be consider a homage.

    But a actual design for Animated Galvatron would be interesting to see. Maybe the artist from the fan art forums that is really good at making TFA inspired characters will make one. Sorry I forgot his name.

    If and when we do get a Galvatron, I just want him to be violently insane. Is that SO much to ask?

    That would be one of the thinks i really dont like is just the repaints of megatron to galvatron.

    But what if its like Beast Wars, Megatron stays the same name. It would be a nice change.

    But if there is a Galvatron im sure it would be a homage to G1 galvatron.

    Would it? S250 implied in this thread that Galvatron would be in the Predacons episode, written by the BW writers, and would not be Megatron, yesss...

    True Galvatron must be a reformat from an outside source on megs for it to be G1 referenced (Unicron). Simply rebuilding megatron doesn't make galvatron, the various animes ruined that completely and utterly. Only one true galvatron out of the lot, which was E-megatron, and E-galvatron (his super form).

    I could live with the IDW way of Galvatron so long as it's written well. (The seperate bot entirely.) But so long as it looks like Galvatron I'll be happy. I'm just hoping they don't go all japanese reference and use BW2 Galvatron.

    Just as I hope the movies don't all of a sudden make him galvatron cause he was destroyed once. Give the Galvatron show up some build up please!

    Megs in stasis cuffs drifting in space does not equal Galvatron either. T_T

    Night Attack Megatron is a good enough homage to the 'super forms' of the animes, but Galvatron he is not.

    So pretty much he's however you want to approach him in the animated aesthetic, I have a sneaking suspicion the Predacon one will be BW2 influenced (Allows for a certain Dragon Voiced leader...).

    that would be an interesting twist, Starcream is already NUTS. or maybe some being merges megatron and Starscream's head. that should make them completely freaking off the wall Crazy, knowing that a little bit of the other is in their head :D

    Even if Galvatron ends up being Megatron reborn, I wouldn't be surprised if he got a new body. Though the way this show is going, I wouldn't be surprised if Galvatron was a completely different character all together. He could be the leader of a rouge group of Decepticons.

    Yea, that would be a great idea.

    It would be like the BW, Megatron and Galvatron. Or like the G1 comics.

    he he

    oh side note

    What would make me laugh is if Galvatron happens to be the same dude from our Universe line for this year. For all we know, as crazy as it sounds, it just could happen.

    Oddly enough, it did happen in tha Armada comic already, so I'd say it's fair game as potential. xD

    Yeah, I seem to remember something like that happening, but it was G1 Galvatron in that comic I think.

    Don't have much love for Galvatron. There's still endless possibilities to explore Megatron in this series, why waste it by turning him into another character? (Ok, besides the fact of selling more toys.:p )

    They wouldn't have to. They could always go the route of Galvatron being a completely separate character all together. Essentially a non-reformated Megatron. That way we could have both Megatron and Galvatron in the same episode, and have it truly make sense. Would be interesting to see them argue, imo.

    Only way I'd want BWII Galvatron would be if his alt mode was the drill tanks, drill tanks are amazing.

    I've always thought of Beast Wars Megatron as Galvatron-esque. I know he's not insane or anything, but seems to fit. But it sounds like Galvatron is going to be a jet.
