    Majority of stories, the primary villain is always in the need of assistance to get things done, so it's nothing new, or farfetched if one was to look into the world history books.

    In TF1 he needed help from the Decepticons to unfreeze him. First, Frenzy gets the information on where Megatron is. He tells all Decepticons and Startscream goes to Hover Dam and shoots the generators that were keeping Megatron frozen. Without that, the Transformers live-action movies couldn't move on. So basically, the main villain will always need the help from his minions.

    That's Because Megatron is not a Prime. BOTH those things required the Matrix, something he does not have.

    I wish they kept it in the script for ROTF that the Fallen lied to him about making him a Prime and the fact your only a Prime by birth with Megatron leaving the Fallen to his death for maniupulating him.

    Now that would have made Megatron awesome.



    I kidna wished DOTM had kept the idea of a heel turned Megatron ala Armada Megatron.

    See, now you're just stirring up trouble.

    You're acting as if Megs needs aid with everything. 1) The sun harvester wasn't even his plan 2) He couldn't exactly revive Sentinel himself.

    Because it wouldn't have been uninteresting at all if just solely Megatron was the main villain in all three movies...

    There's always a more villainous bad guy and each one will need assistance at some point.

    He is a Decepticon leader. He has TROOPS, which is why there is a WAR. This is not a Superhero movie, with one hero versus one villain. He is a military general, and has always been the leader of a faction. Not someone who turns on his chair and says, "I've been expecting you". He also doesn't do everything himself. Obviously. One would think this had been established since effin' G1.
