    If Unicron never re-formed Megatron into Galvatron and left for scrap instead. You think Starscream would of finally became the new leader of the Decepticons like he always wanted? And you think Unicron would of made a deal with Screamer or he would of chosen somebody to follow his plans.

    If you do not like the thread, please use the report button.

    Anyways, I DO like this topic.

    I believe it is as Megatron said:
    If Megatron was just left to die, there would soon be another 'Con to try and take Starscream's place. A usurper. And Starscream would have to go through the same scrap Megatron did with him. Karma takes its toll.

    The Coneheads, prolly.

    However, Screamer wouldn't have lasted very long. I predict that Shockwave would've usurped him shortly after his self-appointment.

    I'd think Soundwave or one of the Coneheads.

    If Galvatron never came to be & Megatron was left for scrap, I'd think that Starscream would do just as he did & try to take over the Decepticons. Honestly though, I don't see him leading for long though. I'd like to think that Soundwave or maybe the Combaticons would have made a play for leadership, after disposing of Starscream.....or whipping him into shape like Megatron used to.

    wat

    Anyhoo, if Megs had never been reformated I'm pretty sure Unicron would've continued to devour Cybertron regardless if he had someone following his lead or not. I think it's proven near the end that he could care less if the Matrix is destroyed or not, he just wanted to destroy Cybertron. I mean, yeah it was the only thing that could stop him, but if that's the case why didn't he just move to Earth and consume the whole planet w/ Magnus and the Matrix BEFORE going to Cybertron?

    And as for Screamer I'm sure he would have stayed leader for a short time before Shockwave or someone betraying him.

    I already pretend that most of the 1986 movie and most of season 3 never happened.

    Starscream couldn't lead a parade.

    He always thought he'd like to be leader, but he'd never have been able to handle it if he'd gotten it. The G1 Decepticons are rabble without a strong leader to fear, and no one fears Starscream.

    I think we've had a thread like this before and it was concluded that Starscream would lead for a bit before either being overthrown or having to try and make a deal with Unicron to not eat Cybertron when he arrived.

    Starscream would probably try to offer Unicron Earth as a tasty snack instead, which would shift the final big space battle there. Then the rest of the movie would play out almost the same as before, but with Starscream instead of Galvatron being the one to get his hands on the Matrix and attempting to betray Unicron.

    I think he would've taken over and try to lead the Decepticons into some crazy scheme and they would've been like "Aww hell no!" They would've ran Screamer outta town.

    They just wouldn't follow him like they would follow Megatron.

    How about one of the triple changers?
    Blitzwing and Astrotrain already betrayed Starscream in Triple Takeover.
    I'm sure one of them would try to overthrow him again if he was the leader.

    What about Shockwave with Soundwave as his right hand bot?

    Starscream leaving and starting his own group?

    soundwave probably would've tried to kick screamer's ass. Soundwave: superior, Starscream: inferior.

    Starscream could potentially have ended up as leader - but without the charisma of some leaders, or the sheer power of Megatron or Galvatron to keep everyone in line, one of two things would have happened - either someone else would have overthrown him, or someone cunning enough to manipulate Starscream would have let him lead as a figurehead, while they act as the true power behind the throne.

    Alternatively, Starscream would have led, but under his leadership, the Decepticons would have been barely better off than they were under his leadership in the IDW comics or how they were by Five Faces of Darkness.

    The Decepticons - at least in the animated series - needed a strong leader, one who was powerful enough to lead them and keep them in line. Starscream never demonstrated any kind of ability for that, even though he often attempted to seize power for himself.
