    If Megatron was to ever become Galvatron how do you think it would change the tone of the film and will it make you more invested in his character ? Also will he still have Hugo Weaving as the voice? Side note will you all be pissed if someone of something else reformats him and not Unicron .

    I would want someone different for the voice and I would want his character to change. Make him the psycho from G1 S3. :lol

    Nothing will change, Prime will eventually take his face too.

    With Soundwave, Shockwave, Starscream and Megatron all dead, it makes perfect sense for Galvatron to appear in #4.

    He's probably still have Hugo Weaving as his VA.

    And Unicron should not be in the movie verse as a visible threat. If he is, he'll be relegated to some V'Ger like giant amorphous cloud of crap (probably nanite transformers) like Galactus in Fantastic Four 2 or Parallax in Green Lantern.

    I'd say let Megatron's Spark, separated from his body, emerge in some kind of dead-universe like place and have it encounter the creators of the AllSpark, who reformat Megatron into Galvatron as their emissary for their ambitions (which frankly, will be hard to top over what was planned scale wise in RotF). Maybe eradication of the biological or something.

    I think if Galvatron was introduced, he should be his own character. Megatron would have come back twice if he became Galvy and that would get stale

    I say make Galvatron a separate entity that finds Megs remains and downloads his knowledgebase but in the process ends up getting a small part of his psyche unknowingly.

    dangerous and could flip at any minute, I would like. Plus also Shockwave and Starscream, their sparks could be shown to be intact in stasis, like Sentinal was, but they just needing new bodies.

    I'd rather Megatron NOT be turned into Galvatron, honestly. He's gone through three bodies by this point, just upgrading him into another body would simply be following the pattern of Megatron's course through the movies. He fights Prime, gets killed/seriously damaged, gets a new body, repeat process.

    It's really quite boring whenver Megatron becomes Galvatron for me, really. Unless it was something completely radical like the original Megatonr-to-Galvatron conversion, all we'd get is a repaint as the only visible sign something changed. And that just doesn't work in the movieverse.

    Well maybe they could keep Megatron's personality, memories, brain but just much more significant power. So the average person watching it won't be confused.

    Galvatron can only be voiced by Leonard Nimoy.
    As for Unicron,I think he'd do better as a figure of myth that some Transformers worship. But not a actuall character in a movie.

    I hope this happens...

    After knowing dropping off meg's remains into the deepest point on earth wont do, humans (after consulting the autobots) decided to send him off to outer space in one piece (noble Autobots believes every single dead Transformers must be dealt with with honor). This is when Unicron stumbled across and reformat/resurrect him. The rest is history.

    If Megatron returns as Galvatron, It be nice to see Soundwave and the other return too.
    It's still hard for me to me to think of a good plot that doesn't involve protecting the humans, again, and again.
    True, but it would please the fans.

    If Galvatron is introduced I want to see constructicon character again, I miss them.

    I don't think Galvatron would work and I can't see the studios ever getting behind it. Mainly because, factoring in the GENERAL audience as they have to do, they would get completely slayed for introducing another "atron" main villain after already having Megatron in 3 movies, 2 of which he already died in and 2 of which he was resurrected in. If they pull out a 4th movie and just add "Galv" to the beginning of his name, people (again, the mass general non-TF-geek-aware-of-G1 audience) will roll their eyes and critics will kill the movie before it's even released. It would look too desperate, regardless of how much sense it makes in the fandom... who we are constantly reminded apparently makes up ziltch percent of the overall money Hasbro & the movie studios pull in.

    Just looking at it practically.

    I love Weaving's voice work. I'd want to see him again.

    Optimus has one of these. He has plaques of Bonecrusher, Grindor, The Fallen, Shockwave, Megatron and Sentinel.
