    What ChopperByrne said. Unicron reformatted Megatron into Galvatron. In the 1986 movie.

    In the 1986 movie, Megatron was badly damaged by Optimus and thrown in space by Starscream. Then, Unicron found him and more damaged Decepticons and reformatted them into his heralds, one of them being Megatron turned into Galvatron. After Unicron was destroyed by Rodimus, the Decepticons didn't have to serve him anymore. Though, Galvatron kinda went insane...

    Watching the '86 animated movie'll make this pretty clear real quick.

    And just out of curiousity, who is this "they" who're saying Galvatron killed Megatron...?

    well i meant the people who made the movie killed off megatron. But the thing that pists me off is that people always say megatron is dead galvatron is the new elader i thought they were the same guy.

    well in the sense Galvatron's personality especially post movie is radically different than Megatron, the killed him off but physically no Galvatron is a rebooted, reformatted Megs

    I think the movie and cartoon are a bit vague about this. It's never really certain if inside it's still Megatron or an entirely new persona. When he kills Starscream it suggest it's Megatron, but later on he never recalls memories.

    I'd say it's 90% a new character, but with 10% unconscious memory of his past.

    The same tasty old Megatron flavour soup, but with added spices and vegetables and poured into a flash new Galvatron-shaped soup bowl.

    Something like that. :)

    In almost all Transformers continuities - I say "almost" because there will be some splinter timeline somewhere that will prove me shamefully wrong - Galvatron is a reformatted, recoloured, upgraded version of Megatron. In Generation 1, Unicron upgraded a severely damaged Megatron into Galvatron in the 1986 movie - if you're angry at the moviemakers for killing off Megs, then you're not going to like the fact that they also killed off almost every member of the 1984 cast, wrongly believing fans had no attachment to the characters and just liked toys. Cue thousands of bawling kids (and adults) over the death of Optimus Prime. If you take a look at the movie's poster, you'll plainly see that it features ONLY newly-introduced toys/characters.

    Back on track, Galvatron is usually much more self-assured than Megs ever was due to his power ("I have a big boost of confidence, yeesssssssss...") which might explain how you're finding it hard to see that he is actually the same 'Con.

    Hope I cleared stuff up. :)

    The "big boost of confidence" quote was from the hilariously funny "Bee In The City" scriptreading from BotCon 2008. :)

    BW Megs said it best: "New package, same product".

    Galvatron is Megatron with a more psychotic mindset.

    Galvatron has Megatron's memories and body. It's the same guy.

    Galvatron betrayed and murdered Megatron.

    So what they told you was true, from a certain point of view.

    In some G1 continuities they're not the same bot though, but in the cartoon they definitely are.

    Can't wait to see what's going to happen with Galvatron after All Hail Megatron in the IDW G1 continuity.
