    I would like to imagine what it would be like if they actually change sides. If it where to happen and Megatron became the leader of the Autobots and Optimus the leader of the Decepticons would they lose their respective names? What names would they have?

    Thanks

    One, they wouldn't just drop the names they had.
    Two, it would never, ever, ever, ever work out for either of them.

    Be near impossible for the bot to trust Megatron as leader. The only good Megatron is the SG version, I don't see a normal Megatron changing much in the mind. The Autobots will either gang up on him and stop him or he'll wipe out the Autobots. With the way the cons are, Prime would be blown to scrap as soon as he enters the base. If by some slim chance he isn't killed at that point, Starscream would take him down. While Megatron might expect Starscream to do something, Optimus wouldn't and probably end up offline from Starscream's actions.

    I don't see happing unless they have drastic changes in their personatlys.

    However I can see something like that in the other characters. Take Grimlock and Shockwave for example. Grimlock when we're talking about his Marvel,IDW and FOC versions is sort of like Megatron when it comes to being brutal and violent only he fights for a more just cause. And Shockwave's like Optimus when it comes to having a more level headed and not as violent tatics as Optimus only more demented.

    It would be cool if real world Optimus Prime and Megatron switched universes with Shattered Glass Optimus and Megatron. They return to there respective bases before learning of this swap. SG Optimus then works with the decepticons and SG Megatron works with the Autobots to fine a way home.

    Working together to fight off a common foe is one thing but completely changing sides is another. Visiting the SG universe and spark-swapping would make better stories.

    If I remember correctly Megatron did sorta lead the Autobots for a bit in Target:2006 while Optimus was lost in the Limbo Dimension. The Autobots were doing badly against Galvatron and Ironhide decided they desperately needed a proper leader so he dug Meggy out of where he'd been buried.

    During the event of a heel turn and a face turn at the same time, the new heel turn must change their entrance music, and develop a nick name of sorts. The new former heel will become the most popular Transformer for 3 weeks, and then get buried in a 10 second squash match by the former face. Afterwords, the heel and the face return to being the face/heel.

    Would love to see a huge coliseum battle. All vs all. Watch Prime tear through some Autobots and Megatron tear through some cons.
