    I am watching the first movie on dvd again and i just remembered that Optimus and Megatron are brothers. Does that mean Megatron Was a former Prime or something like that? I dont know why it just came to mind....

    100% correct!
    Here have a biscuit as your reward :D 

    Prime and Megatron both ruled Cybertron but then Megs decided he wanted the all spark for himself and thats when the whole situation erupted haha.
    He was NEVER a prime though.
    There's a great quote that went something like:
    "you fight for the weak, thats why you lose Prime"
    I may not have it completely accurate but its something along those lines.

    Here have a cookie! (better than a biscuit xD)

    I think you have to be chosen as a Prime. And Optimus was more suited for that job, while Megatron was more suited for his job.

    Not as good as a Chocolate Hob-Nob though hahaha i bet you dont know what that is :p 

    Yes your theory sounds the most feasible. I would like to know the proper answer to the "how do you become a Prime" question!

    Well done! You get a biscuit too! I gotta stop giving these away! im running out :D

    i dont think prime and meg are actual bros, just bros-in-arms since they both co-rule cybertron at one point

    I agree with Querty. Megatron and Optimus Prime are probably only brothers-in-arms, not brother-brothers.

    How come Optimus is a Prime and Megatron is not, but Megatron can fly yet Optimus cannot?

    Yes I watched and loved G1, but the movie continuity hasn't explained this.

    Also, Megatron and Optimus don't look alike. Maybe Megatron should get flame decales? But seriously, Prime is not full of jagged teeth and red eyes.

    Let's clear a few things out:

    -Megatron and Optimus are not brothers.
    -Optimus is a Prime, Megatron isn't.
    -In the Novel it is stated that a Prime is born, thus meaning that Megatron or anyone else will never become a Prime.
    -Megatron and Optimus ruled Cybertron together, but Megatron was more responsible for the protection of the planet and Optimus was the head of the science department if I remember correctly.

    Correct me if I'm wrong on that last point, but the first 3 are true.

    What jostru posted sounded logical, too: if Megatron was assigned to "protect," he'd be the leader of Cybertron's military - and many of the Decepticons are prone to be military: fighter planes, choppers, tanks, psychological and electronic warfare models, security officers etc. They are the biggest and strongest of the Cybertronians in many cases.

    Meanwhile, the Primes are the thoughtful, introspective leaders, more attuned to the civilian population's needs than focused on fighting external threats.

    Dude: the more we learn, the cooler Transformers gets (if that's even possible because they are at an all-time coolness factor right now).
